Ask Dirk: A guy’s perspective on matters of the heart and home

A guy’s perspective on matters of the heart and home.



I have been having trouble with a guy I work with. He is always harassing me with terrible puns and repeating the same jokes over and over again, week after week. It’s incessant. It’s driving me nuts. He thinks it’s funny but it really just gets on my nerves and disrupts the office. This particular gent walks into the office and tells me he “tied all of his watches into a belt last night.” Then after a pregnant pause he adds, “It was a waist of time!” To boot, this guy laughs at his own joke. He usually follows it up by telling me he gave away a bunch of dead batteries–– “Free of charge.” Then to top it all off he always closes with this one: “Have you heard about that new restaurant on the moon? The food’s pretty good, but there’s just no atmosphere.”

Please, oh, please, make it stop!



Anonymous (aka Chad),

Don’t even play, I know it’s you. It’s not enough that you complain about me at work, but now you are harassing me at the magazine! Who gave you this email address? Doesn’t matter––point is, it’s never going to stop. You know you think I’m funny. Heck, I’m hilarious. Never mind all the people standing up telling me to hush, while crying from laughter, and all that noise from the supervisors about no one getting any work done. I see right through it. I can see your face flushed red and your jaw pulsing as you grind your teeth––you’re fighting to hold back laughter, no doubt.

Oh, yeah, and Chad, there’s a new movie called Constipation. But it hasn’t come out yet. Here’s one last one to close out with: Chad, my wife asked me to stop impersonating a flamingo, so I had to put my foot down!
