My First Ever Blog Contest!

Can I get a what-what?!

Have you ever played that game called Two Truths and a Lie?

If you haven’t, basically what you do is tell three things that are not the most believable and the person which you are telling has to figure out which ones are true and which one is not true.

I love this game and since I’ve pretty much shot my wad with my audience here, I am asking for help.

Therefore, I am having a two-part contest. Oh the joys!

Part 1:

Send me an email to with the absolute WORST story you can think of involving work, your boss, or a co-worker. It can be anything; a boss who makes you cut her toenails, a co-worker who farts loudly and then blames…I don’t know, the dog or whatever, a crazy office situation, ANYTHING. The only stipulations are: it has to be about work in some way AND it has to be TRUE.

Please DON’T leave me the story in a blog comment. It’s okay to comment something like, “Hey, I’m going to send you an email!” (Which, actually, do that. Okay? For some reason several people’s emails have been going into my spam folder and if you comment I’ll know to look for your story). But if you leave the story, that will defeat the purpose of Part 2 of the contest.

The person who sends me the craziest/funniest story will win a neato-keeno* prize!

Seriously, make it as funny as possible. My life is so un-funny these days that I need all the help I can get.

Part 2:

I will post two of my favorite crazy work stories and one made up story on my blog. The first person to correctly identify which one is made-up will also win a neato-keeno* prize!

I will accept emails until Thursday at midnight (Eastern Standard Time). I’ll pick the winners on Friday, August 31st.

So, what are you waiting for? Email me already! Even if you don’t normally comment on my blog, please feel free to participate! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with.

*Neato-Keeno= Highly subjective

Really going to have to wrack my brain here. Office life was so long ago. I know I've got some goodies though.

Sheesh, I haven't worked for a paycheck in - like *pauses to tabulate* 15 years. I'll have to reach into the recesses of my mind and see if I can come up with anything. But don't count on me, this week is cuuuhrazzzy - if you want them right away.

Well, it's been about five years since I worked but I do have a work related story that is pretty funny. I'll be sending it your way if anything just to give you a good laugh at my expense. Hey wait a minute, am I retarded? Just kidding it's on it's way :-)
