|29.||piece of work|
Unaware of one's foolishness. Originates from "What a Piece of Work is Man" monologue from Hamlet. More precisely an ironic reflection of how little most men achieve despite being endowed with relatively enormous powers to act and reason. Generally used as a sarcastic "compliment."
My boss can't operate the photocopier without the assistance of half the admin staff. He's a real piece of work!
1: Ripped off
2: The stem of the penis
3: Victim of a trick pulled by a friend
4: Treated like shit where you work
5: a long square tube that rises for stories by use of an elevator
6: a place where gold is mined
1: that dude shafted me, my 10$ action figure broke
2: I exercised my shaft for a while
3: My freind shafted me! now the TV's are showing me during my bout of racism and everyone thinks i'm a prick!
4: My boss shafted me, not to worry, he's shafting demons in hell
5: The elevator's cable broke and we were flying through the shaft, worst... day... EVER!
6: I mined 50 kgs of gold from my private shaft, i transformed them into 24-karat gold Loonies, there's so much, i do not know how much i have in Loonies
A mindless tool of limited but satisfactory use when manipulated by an intelligent entity for a suitable purpose.
Jan: "Marsha, your boss is a complete and utter dildo."
Marsha: "True that, sister, but since he raises my salary every time I wear this mini skirt to the office, I can live with that."
A person who says and does mind-numbingly dumb things. At a glance, these words and actions causes one to roll their eyes.
When talking to an eye dropper, one often stops paying attention to them to continue with matters more important.
More important matters include but are not limited to, staring off into space, looking at the floor, listening to someone else's conversation, talking to a cat with your mind, etc.
One occasionally comes back to the eye dropper to say something along the lines of "Oh yeah?" "That's nice" "That's bullshit" "Some don't get it". This is only done to remind them that there is someone else in the room. Accidentally listening to an eyedropper speech can result in lost IQ points.
One can spot an eye dropper talking to themselves while standing near others or on facebook/twitter, buying their pets clothes.
An eye dropper is a step down from a "Fuckwit".
Friend 1: "My boss went out and bought a hybrid last week."
Friend 2: "What an eye dropper."
While some eye dropper was talk I realized I should to cut my nails. He was talking about Esperanto and/or some other crap. I think it's been almost a month since I cut my nails... Where's the clippers?
Any person in a "management" position who just freaking loses it and starts pounding on their desk and throwing anything within reach like staplers, phones, paperweight etc.
My boss is such a dumbshit that he totally botched up the sale and lost the customer account so he had an Atomic Meltdown and destroyed his office.
|34.||a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush|
This expression means that it is better to have an advantage or opportunity that is certain than having one that is worth more but is not so certain.
"A bird in the hand," is yours, and it's not going anywhere unless you let it go. But if you leave it and go for "two in the bush," there is no guarantee you'll catch them, you might end up with nothing in the end.
In essence, don't be greedy and stick with what good things you already have, instead of going after something you'll probably never get.
Bob: "I think I'm gonna quit my job..another firm is going to offer me a better job.."
Joe: "Are you sure? You probably shouldn't quit unless you know you're gonna get in for sure. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."
Joe: "So how was the interview?"
Bob: "Idk not so good...i don't think the boss is gonna let me come back either..."
Joe: "You're an idiot.."
A dumb, completely pointless holiday invented by greeting card companies to sell more cards. A concept that hasn't and (hopefully) never will catch on. On this day you're supposed to thank your boss for "being kind and fair" and buy him some stupid card, but really, its just a classic hallmark holiday. Ironically, most people seem to resent their bosses anyway so whats the point?
Joe: I got a card for my boss, because today is Boss's Day!
Mike: What the hell is "Boss's Day"?
Joe: Its a day where we show our appreciation of our boss!
Mike: You're an idiot who blindly follows dumb trends, you know that?
