Get Over Yourself - Please

Tuesday, April 29, 2008
I had lunch with Hot Chick Anne today. While I was waiting for her outside our favorite lunch-time Mexican eatery, I overheard a phone conversation. The speaker was in a shirt and tie, and was obviously leaving a message for someone. Only the names have been changed to protect the pretentious:

"Yes, this is Sam Schmuckatelli, and I have the 411 on the Smith project."

Really? Really? Seriously, dude, no one uses that expression. No one used that expression when it wasn't out of date. Because it's pretentious. And dumb.

Get over yourself - please.

I can beat that for sheer jawdropping stupidity.

I once heard a female occupational therapy student say, "I’m good to get four showers in a week. He just really likes to be clean, doesn’t he?"

Her nickname among the employees changed from "that hot chick", to "dirty bit" as in, "dirty bit was in here yacking on her phone again."

Dumb, just dumb.

I'd have strained something with all the eye-rolling, I'm sure.
