I am such a vagina
Yesterday, during an all-hands staff meeting, I was joking with some co-workers that I had decided to start my own branch in our organization and that I was naming myself the manager. In a conference room full of colleagues, the following conversation took place.
Arjewtino: I’m starting my own branch. I’m the manager. Anyone who wants to join me must apply.
Co-worker #1: What are you going to call your branch?
Arjewtino: I don’t know yet. Something about tech writing.
Co-worker #1: How about the Technical Writing Information Team?
-- laughter among staff ensues--
Co-worker #2: I got a better one.
Arjewtino: What is it?
Co-worker #2: Technical Writing Assessment Team.
-- this is where I probably should have said it in my head first --
I shouldn’t be allowed to speak.
