Nelli: *goes to the office, looks at schedule...* Ooh! I'm an extra! (This means that if someone calls in sick, I take their place. Otherwise, I have the day free.)
Nelli: *sits down to wait for everyone to arrive*
Nelli: Bye, guys. See you later.
Nelli: *is two seconds from walking out the door*
Jackie: Nelli...do you want to go to Elkhorn? (Our other office.)
Nelli's Face: *says no*
Jackie: Ya have to go to Elkhorn.
Nelli: Well, then. Yes, Jackie, I'd LOVE to go to Elkhorn. (BLATANT LIES.)
The Elkhorn office gave her directions to give to me, then when she hung up she and Lindsey gave me completely different directions (supposedly easier...HAH.)
Nelli: *drive drive drive*
Directions: *are great*
Road: *is not the right road*
Directions: *suddenly suck*
Nelli: Damn, where am I? Shoot, I...AAAAAAUGH FREEWAY FREEWAY FREEWAY! Exit! Ahhh...AUGH, SAME FREEWAY, DIFFERENT DIRECTION OMGWTFBBQ!
Elkhorn Exit Sign: *looms*
Nelli's car: Zoooooooooooom.
Nelli: *sees the street she needs out the corner of her eye, by sheer luck. Finds Elkhorn office by same method.*
So I went out with Patti. She was nice enough, though she did smoke a lot. And she replaced the words "those" and "they" with "them" a lot. Case in point...
Nelli: Blah blah blah chocolate-covered macadamia nuts.
Patti: Oh yeah. Them are good.
I'd like to say that, though I am the holder of an English degree, I sometimes talk like this too, though not seriously, so it didn't bother me that much...I just found it a point of interest.
Also, she gave me instructions to get home. They were very easy. Go to the stoplight, hang a left, go through two stopsigns, hang a right, and you're on 11 straight into town.
That is WAY EASY, PEOPLE! WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THAT???
