Grump, grump, grump.

One of my co-workers really loves the sound of her own voice. She reiterates constantly.

She just asked me to check up on an e-mail I sent last week, with no response from the receiver. Most people would, at this point, say "would you mind sending a follow-up e-mail?"

No, she says "Well...you know, it's been a week, so I just wanted to see if you wanted to maybe write her a note, just to see how things are..." (said in a soft, "dealing with irate morons" tone of voice)

Me: "I'll send her an e-mail, thanks!"

Woman: "Maybe just, you know, attach the previous message, just a reminder, you don't have to write her another e-mail..."

Me: (starting to get cross) "Okay, yes. I'll send her an e-mail. Thanks."

Woman: "You don't have to send her a whole new e-mail, just mention the previous message, remind her that you'd talked about this before..."

Me: (starting to raise voice) "Yes, I know how to send an e-mail."

Woman: "Oh, I'm not telling you how to write an e-mail, I just...you know, wanted to suggest that you just send her the message you sent before, just as a friendly reminder..."

Me: (now an angry, irate moron): "I KNOW how to send a follow-up e-mail. Okay. Thank you." *hangs up phone*

Who are these tards?!? Argh, now I'm all cross-wise and irritable.

"Good DAY, Madam!"

"I just didn't want you to think I telling you how to do you job, I mean, I didn't want to offend you or anything. I was just, you know, making a suggesti-"

Where's that from? That's a line used in a movie I'm really fond of, or something.

"I SAID good DAY, Sir!"

is from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. (Gene Wilder).

Fez on That 70's Show also picked it up as a catchphrase.
