Movie Madness Monday: v. 21
Okay, then! Here comes this week's Movie Madness Monday, in which I kid myself that I am NOT as nerdy as some quiz says I am (still stung by that one, yep).
So here's how to play: I provide quotes from a movie. You provide a quote of your own from the movie-- in the comments section. The movie's name is then revealed on Wednesday. It's simple! It's fun! And, it's inevitable, because here it comes!
"Uh-oh! Sounds like somebody's got a case of the 'Mondays!'"
"He's my boss! He's my unholy, disgusting, pig of a boss!"
"He's not that disgusting!"
"He represents all that is soulless and wrong!"
"So you're making a lot of money..."
"... that's not yours..."
"Well, it becomes ours."
"And how is that not stealing?"
"I was told I could listen to the radio at a reasonable volume from 9 to 11...."
"The thing is, Bob-- it's not that I'm lazy. It's that I just don't care."
"When I saw that fat man keel over and die... --Michael, we don't have a lot of time on this Earth! We weren't meant to spend it this way! Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles and stare at computer screens-- filling out useless forms and listening to eight diferent bosses drone on about mission statements!"
"Yes, but I'm not going to do anything illegal!"
"Illegal? This is America!!!"
"Excuse me? Uh, I believe you have my stapler?"
****Wednesday Update: Welcome to the world of
Mike Judge's brilliant Office Space! Even though teachers don't work in cubicles, so much of this rings true-- the misbegotten printer you want to smash into bits, the territoriality of coworkers, the bosses who don't listen, the demands that eat up your personal time, and on and on....
"And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire..."
This one truly is a new classic for the Working World. And thanks for playing!
