    Link: Yeah, That`s Not What I Was Looking For At All... - Email exchange between the graphic designer and the secretary, who has lost her cat. A bit ``tl;dr`` but bear with it.

    I laughed at it, but at the same time I kind of wanted to kill that guy-- if this is a real person he`s talking to, I hope karma cuts off one of his limbs. (I know this is the spider guy, but I can`t remember if he makes this up or not)

    This is funny great fiction but why are people calling him a dick? If you work for a big company these kind of unilateral requests are made all the time. Imagine you`re working the counter at a bakery. Your sister`s in town and it`s her birthday. You ask the baker if he could whip up a small cake for her. He doesn`t know your sister at all. He either gets all sarcastic like above or says, "Yeah, give me 25$ bucks and I`ll do it." You get pissed because he doesn`t stop what he`s doing even though you asked for the favor. What if he did it for you? What favor are you going to do for him?

    Generally speaking, I was seriously tempted to text, "So, you find your cat yet?" to the number on the poster, but, eh... I don`t really feel like putting up with the noise that might bring.

    That says something about gender polarisation, perception of altruism, and enjoyment of sarcasm in modern society. But I can`t be arsed to figure out what it says.

    "That says something about gender polarisation, perception of altruism, and enjoyment of sarcasm in modern society. But I can`t be arsed to figure out what it says."

    Probably says that females are more compassionate (especially to animals), and males can be dicks I guess?

    Blah blah blah, probably due to maternal instinct, blah blah blah.

    This is hilarious!

    It reminds me of one time when a supervisor of mine asked me to make a sign in Word that said` "Keep these doors closed"

    I printed out his email and blew it up on the copier.
