I was an unfortunate participant in this precious gem of a conversation
. BTW, Co-worker
B is a woman with a heavy West Virginia mountain accent.
co-worker A: "Bob is a nerd. He graphed the bandwidth of (company) during the Alan Green....Green-something speech."
co-worker A: "Yeah, that's it."
co-worker B: "Wait - Alan WHO?"
me: "Alan Greenspan."
one of the managers walks by and does a little subservient bowing gesture at the man's name
co-worker B: "Who is he?"
me: "The Federal Reserve chairman."
co-worker B: "Whatever that is. I thought maybe he worked here."
me: "Yeah, he's over in accounting."
Anyway. Y gave me some Toy Story 2 figures and I put them on top of my monitor at work.
