The Very Nerve!

Yesterday I was sitting at my desk when I heard one of the attorneys in Legal next to us yell "WOO HOO!" I went to stand by Colin's chair, a few feet away.

"Did you HEAR that?" I asked, my voice dripping with disapproval.

Colin looked up and shook his head. "Disgusting."

"Don't they know this is a very conservative company?" I asked, outraged.

"I don't know how they expect us to work under these conditions."

"There is a time and place for everything, and anyone with any sense of decency would know that there is absolutely no room for happiness in the office. "

It was about this time we lost our composure and burst into hysterical laughter. My supervisor looked over at us, puzzled.

Whoops. Too much happiness!

It reminds me of a college production of "Annie" (we all do strange things in college; that's my excuse, anyway), where Miss Hannigan comes in and says, "Do I hear HAPPINESS in here?!?!?"
