I majorly debated posting on this because it makes me SO ANGRY. Not the movie.  I could care less about this movie or the TV show it’s based on.
The goshdarn tagline.  “They’re too old for this shift”  REALLY?  That is the tagline you choose for this movie.  The most RIDICULOUS, STUPID, PAINSTAKINGLY ANNOYING tagline I have seen this year or last year or the year before?
I say this as a person who never gets passionately, seeing red angry over pop culture (well, at least not since Watchmen, but that is a post for another day as my blood pressure is already threatening to kill me).
"They’re too old for this shift" is something Danny Glover says to Mel Gibson when they surveil old folks working illegally in the back storage room of a Forever 21 alleged to be a warehouse for drugrunners in Lethal Weapon 27: Yeah, We Just Wanted the Paycheck.
I would be less angry if the tagline was something stupid: “Jump This.” “High School Just Got Funnier.” “High School.  Depp Cover.” 
Ok.  So these suck.  But so does the official one.  ANGER.  IRRATIONAL ANGER.

Every Day A Little Death

So, in another excellent I should think before I speak story, I was sitting waiting for someone to return to a meeting and speaking to one of my bosses. After explaining to me that people his age have more of a certain chemical in their body due to the atom bomb going off, he said “So, that is how someone would be able to tell my age even without any other info, and I would have more of this chemical than you.”

My response - “So you’re dying now while we speak?”

Because what every older person wants is to be reminded of their own morality by their younger colleague.

So, I was sitting waiting for a meeting to start with one of my bosses.  In the course of making general smalltalk, she remarked “So many people in the office are pregnant.  So-and-so, so-and-so, and so-and-so.  Better watch out - you could be next.”

My response “That would be a shock.”

Her: “Immaculate conception?”

I think I need to start thinking before I speak.  But then I post something to a blog. Soooooo … clearly I have learned zero lessons.  Comedy trumps dignity. Every. Damn. Time.
