Work Tip #5

When talking to the wife of an ex-CEO and trying to explain why you haven't been back to bring them a new modem, it is best to not use the phrase, "Up to our elbows in alligators". The reason is that your mouth will automatically turn the word elbows into assholes. If the brain isn't paying attention, the mouth will snicker after the word escapes.


I'm kind of snickering!
