who’s the new guy?

I was having a group discussion with some of my co-workers, when a bubbly female character appeared out of nowhere and interrupted the session. After a few cheerful exchange of informal compliments with the members of the group, the afore said female character (let’s call her Chicken) then saw me and asked overtly,

Chicken: “So, who is this guy? A new employee?”

Feeling compelled to not look like a dork, I managed to pull a straight face and answered her curiosity myself,

Me: “I’m the new Vice President of this company.”

Chicken: “Hhyeah right, and I’m the CEO.”

Me: “You really shouldn’t say things like that to a VP.”

And then one of the guy team member decided to help out,

Guy member: “Hey Chicken, just look at his badge. He’s agent number 001…”

Chicken strained her eyes to look at my badge and I showed her my name ‘MICHAEL OOI’, emphasis on my surname…

Me: “Yeah, that’s my agent number – 001.”

Chicken: “Heyyyy how did you get the 3 numbers there? Are you a contract worker or something?”

Me: “That’s actually an indication of my position in this company”

That was when her look changed to ‘OMGWTFBBQ’ and started to freak out. Just when I was beginning to wonder how goddamn gullible a female can get, the rest of the team members started to laugh square at her face and one of them had to explain to her repeatedly that it was my surname.

Chicken: “Ohhhhh you mean all along he’s just bluffing me right?”

No shit sherlock, and she had to ask that last question to double confirm…

    TYH – CKT can be stir…fried :-P

    This reminds me of a story in my previous company. Our HoD named Mr Ooi asked one of my colleague to urgently get 2 thumb drives from his office to the boardroom (where the big bosses where having a mtg). After a couple of mins of frantic searching, my colleague came running to me “KNNCCB…I CAN’T FIND ANY THUMBDRIVES WITH HIS NAME ON IT! THERE ARE ONLY 2 DRIVES ON HIS DESK. BOTH ARE NUMBERED 001 and 100!!!

    hee hee…
