    I really liked #2. I've known a few seagull managers in my day....
    And Stress Puppies, too!!! [​IMG]

    And I hate OHNOSECONDS. Usually I send the e-mail explaining the attachments, but forget to attach the attachments [​IMG]

    Glad you guys enjoyed them. I figure anything that makes me laugh out loud is worth sharing. Did a search first, though, to make sure no one else had shared...
