Co-worker: Boss person and I will be going over our courses tomorrow and need the synopsis for each one…is there a way to get them out of the system?
What I wanted to say: Are you as stupid as you look right now…have you ever heard of a printer???
What I did say: Yes.
Co-worker: Do you think you can get those for us so we can lay them all out on the table and have a look at them?
What I wanted to say: Oh yes please allow me to do a completely mindless and tedious job for you oh great and powerfully busy co-worker. We shall not have you doing your own tedious work…that would just be wrong!
What I did say: Yes
