While working for the state

Posted 13 September 2006 in humor and quote

This past summer I worked for Oklahoma's DHS.

Overheard in the hallway

Scott : "What are you doing here?"
Tom : "Just checkin' up on my buddy."
Scott : "I have no buddies. That makes you a liar."

Coming back from lunch

Scott : "What do you know?"
Me : "Not much."
Scott : "I think you're holding out on me."

An email from a manager

"We never finish with one project until we are required to begin others!"

Said while regaling me with incredible stories

"If we were out to make money, we would have bombed years ago." *[DHS]: Department of Human Services
