As I was conversing with a cubicle-neighbor of Maz (let's call the neighbor Archie today), I noticed out of the corner of my eye that he was standing up in his cube, staring in our direction. I redirected my attention to him, where he was standing with a goofy grin on his face, holding a packet of chocolate covered coffee beans. The conversation went something like this:

Maz: Oh, hey, I was just wondering if you wanted some beans?

Me: No thanks, I'm good.

Maz: Oh, really?

Me: Yep.

Maz directs his stare at Archie, who walks by and heads to the coffee pot. Archie notices his gaze and says, "I'm headed for the real thing."

Maz: Oh, really?

Me: Yeah, we like to drink our stuff.

Maz: Oh, really?

Like a nerd at a school dance, Maz was shunned and scuffed back to his cube, beans in hand...thinking of his next victim.

just for the record
... in attempt to moderately curtious Morpheus decided to inquire about the Maz-Man's recent vacation excursion, here's how it went -

Morpheus: So how'd the vacation treat you?

Maz: Great, great ... it was a lot of fun.

Morpheus: That's good to hear, I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it.

Maz: Yeah, I don't know if you know - but I went to Hawaii recently with my wife, the big island, we had a lot of fun.

Morpheus: {Almost chokes on his Sun Chips(Harvest Chedder...very tasty)}

Maz: ... yeah, we had a great time swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling - uh? Did I say snorkeling, I meant we went in a submarine.

Morpheus: {Thinks to himself ... I hear the submarining in Hawaii is awesome this time of year}

Maz: Have you ever been to an island?

Morpheus: Yes I have, actually ...

Maz: Sorry?

Morpheus: Yes, Catalina.

Maz: Really, I had never been on an island before.

Morpheus: {Wishes he had one of those blue or red pills right about now - even some scotch would do the trick}

today, names are truncated to protect the players

One fine workday, here in East Cubicleville, my manager A was at my cube talking shop. M came over and sidled his way into the conversation, perhaps overhearing his name as we planned some menial task for him. A turned and started talking to M, who gradually walked back to his own cube (diagonal from mine). As M transitioned back to his normal seated position, A leaned on P's adjoining cubicle wall and continued to talk to M -- never making eye contact with P. Note, this whole sequence of events transpired over a period of several minutes.

Out of the blue, M looks up at A and says...

"Oh, are you talking to me?"
A was stunned. Passively repressing his rage in the matter, A proceeded to re-explain two minutes of coversation to M.

Seeing your manager get blindsided by stupidity.......Priceless.

Little Big House

On the ride back from lunch one sunny day, we passed an odd gun store. Next to the gun store, there is a single-level, muliple tenant, apartment building (long brick building -- probably around 300 ft). The conversation went something like this:

C: Hey, check out that sweet place. You could live next door to that kick-ass gun store. I think there is a drive-thru liquor store a block west of here.

M: Man, that's a big house.

C: House? [laughing]

A: You mean the one with 5 or 6 front doors?

M: Sorry? Oh. You think that's an apartment building or something?

At this point we all were laughing histerically and explained the peculiar new building formation.
