One of my co-workers kept on referring to him as Mr. Bulbulac.
Guess what, in filipino, "bulbul" is pubic hair and "bulac" is cotton.
Well Hello Mr. Cotton-Pubic hair!
Mar 26, '05Joined: Nov '04; Posts: 209; Likes: 11I work in an office in the back of a big warehouse. Out on the floor there are some low-life people there, so they really watch what kinds of "weapons" could be around. Because of this, all the tools in the building are strictly accounted for.
Anyway, so here I am at my desk in the office, and the ARM of my chair just falls off. There were 2 screws holding this arm on, and both of them gave out. So I call the maintenance supervisor to come by and fix the chair.
He comes to the office and starts picking on me, just teasing that a silly chair is not important... So I tell him: "Mike, C'mon and help me here. I'd screw it myself, but I lack the proper equipment!" ... It wasn't until he turned beet red that I realized what the heck I said!
It broke once more since then, and I decided I'd just put a whole bunch of packing tape on it!

I stated, "Don't worry, I've seen bigger", it was only after I left the room did I think about what I had said. Luckily I don't think the pt thought about it!

It was our first clinical and we had toured the unit. We were back in the conference room discussing the patients. The instructor was explaining how to read the patient admission list and said,"this on is here on a criminal charge." We were all kinda scared and she then said, "remember the really short patient in the hallway?" We nodded and she said, "well that is the one in for assault."
I said, "What did the patient do? Punch someone in the knee!?!"
We all rolled!! I don't usually say things like that, but we were all under pressure and it just slipped out!!
After clinical, we were still laughing one of the SN's said she was going to wear knee pads to the hospital the next day to protect her knees. I told her she would need to wear them backwards so she could protect the backs of her knees!!!
I still can NOT believe I said that!!
In His Grace,
Failure is NOT an option!!

I had just had my hair cut and styled in a fancy salon. it was crowded and my mom was there chit-chatting with some of the other girls there...well, the guy who did my hair turned off the hairdryer and proudly showed me my new 'do in the mirror to which I replied
"Wow! I guess I just got a great blow job, huh mom?"

i walked in, sat down and someone asked me how work was, to which i replied 'ahhh nothing but babies, if i see another baby i will just scream, i can't stand a whole day with babies' and my friend then told me that she had asked me to come to dinner to tell me she was pregnant...
i just kept waiting for that hole to open up in the floor and let me escape... :stone

The only character that was missing was the little cowboy. He and I decided to meet for lunch one day and wound up going to, where else, Burger King. He started placing our order "Can I get a Whopper Meal, she wants a fish sandwich meal." We wait for our food and when it arrives he asks the food server "Hey Guy, you got a Woody?"
May 20, '05Occupation: long term care/dementia Joined: Apr '05; Posts: 25I once had a colonoscopy by a DR. Auger..... My girlfriend breaks up with her boyfriend. Next day I go on and on about how she really is lucky to be rid of him, that he is homely, etc. He was standing in the corner of the room listening. They had made up..... I was preaching to some c.n.a.s about how we were derived from a one cell organism, and said (orgasm). oops.

one day i was wearing a lace bra, which i knew i shouldn't have worn because it would itch!!! i was trying to say, i can't wait to get out of this itchy "bucking fra," but since i was used to saying "bucking fra" and was thinking i needed to "spoonerize it," i ended up saying loudly enough for the whole ed, waiting room included that "i can't wait to get out of this itchy ****ing bra!!!!" i'm still surprised that the waiting room full of conservative little old folks (we have a lot of mennonites in our area) didn't suddenly all develop chest pain and diaphoresis!
i usually only open my mouth to switch feet!
