Good For a Laugh

I just received this (slightly edited to protect identities) in an email from a coworker:

"I am writing to inform everyone that today is my last day. I've just purchased the winning Powerball lottery tickets (worth $340 million dollars), and after tonight, I feel that it will be time to move on. Please, do not cry, I know this is hard for everyone (well... almost everyone...). Next time I'm in town, maybe I'll buy everyone a cup of coffee, my treat. I'll even let you get one of those expensive latte drinks with the sprinkles on top."

Good Lord. I hope this was intended as a lame joke or attempt at sarcasm or something.
Pathetic!

I guess you have to know my coworker. This is sarcasm at its best. What is fun about it is that this is completely random.

For example the last time we were asked for our resumes for a project he wrote back with all of these crazy "skills." I find it to be funny thought it might give someone else a smile, I know I needed it today, feeling down for some bizarre reason.

I've been down all week. But I know why I am. Maybe you're just in a sort of post-partum depression now that the marathon is over :) can't imagine that giving birth is much harder than running 26 miles!

Please tell me that adele is kidding about the birth think? If not boy is she in for it when she has kids.

E-Speed said...

I think she is kidding ;) Although they do say having kids is like running a marathon you can't do it again until you forget about the pain endured previously.

Personally I'll take on the marathon any day ;)

Adele said...

Oh, ja, I was kidding! :)
Sorry, that is sometimes hard to get across in an online comment.
But I'm serious about the depression! I think I'll be at Carla's Friday night if you need cheering up Elizabeth!

Hahaha. I play the MegaMillions from time to time and give similar speeches to my co-workers. ;)

Often on Fridays I tell my boss that there is a 1 in 145 million chance that I wont be into to work on Monday ;)

E-Speed said...

Ahh but Lynne you are probably only half teasing ;) If you do win the lottery that would be awesome :) You could lounge at the lake all day with your dogs and peruse want ads for a comfy job with lots of benefits and nice people!

Oh yeah...but with my luck, I would have a "Hurley" experience if I won the lotto (yup, I am watching too much Lost) ;)
