So, there I am, sitting on the toilet, scrolling through Instagram photos and up pops the photo above. The message on the pic said;
Nothing like walking into your last day on the job and seeing this. Glad this isn’t my desk.
It made my day! Seriously, what do ya do with this if you were the victim… other than put on some sun glasses, strip to your skivvies and sit down like you’re gonna sun tan? The good news was, I found this pic early while sitting on the toilet scrolling through Instagram. Some days I sit there scrolling for so long that my legs and feet go numb. Then I have to hold on to all of the towel racks to extricate myself from the bathroom.
But back to the topic at hand…
This is one of those times where the victim of the prank would go through the various stages of the, “Ya Jagoff!” phrase
1) There’s the version, that’s posted on this log every day… venting about someone that has been a jerk, said with a scowl on your face, “Ya Jagoffs!” Of course, expressing displeasure toward whatever co-workers did this, or those that are laughing at it or are now posting your reaction on Twitter, Facebook, Vine, Instagram and, for those older officer workers, My Space.
2) There’s the version that expresses displeasure but, in a few minutes, you realize this was pretty funny, and you wished you had thought of it, so half chuckling you say, “Whooooooooo everrrrrrr did this, I’m..I’m gonna… I’m….. oh…(as your admiring their work)..oh, Ya Jagoffs!”
3) There’s the version where, you are either expressing appreciation to someone or you’re simply just calm and happy… with a smile on your face and a hug, you say, “Ya Jagoffs!” This particular phase, more than likely, will come days, weeks or possibly months later when, the victim, pays back the “foiler” by sending one of those 1990-ish emails that says “Make sure you turn your speakers up for this one!” which then opens an email attachment that says, “Hey, I’m watching porn over here!”
In any event, this is hysterical unless you are the person that sits at this desk OR you’re my mother who would take one look at this and the proceed to whoop your ARSE for wasting all of that “good tin foil!”
Nice work BNY Mellon gang…. Ya Jagoffs! (Said in the smiling, we’re envious connotation!)
Thanks to Mayoraddyb on Instagram for being our Honorary Jagoff Catcher and for helping me find this pic, not once but TWICE on Instagram!
