I don't know, a two-hour meeting once caused my sphincter to prolapse.

I always like to play "business meeting bingo" in meetings. You make a bingo card with various buzzwords and then you wait for the phrases to be said. The one thing I'd caution you about is yelling BINGO because that will arouse suspicion.

I did that occasionally without the bingo card, just to make a point.

Point. Are there other kinds of miscarriage? It is what it is. We'll have to consider this problem on a going-forward basis.

Sounds like a hoot.

I don't do Twitter, but how on earth does a random woman have 20,000 followers? For what? And doesn't her company care that she is posting constantly when she should be working?
 
2009-11-04 11:32:15 AM  
When you're so dull that you can bore a fetus to death, it's time to get into another line of work.

Abortion doctor, perhaps...
 
2009-11-04 11:33:34 AM  
If you have two kids, two abortions and two miscarriages your uterus should be taken from you.

I'd be afraid of getting within 10 feet of this woman for fear of spontaneous pregnancy.

Who posts this shiat on Twitter?

Does she also post when she's having her period? She must be one of the most narcissistic people on Twitter. Then who in their right mind posts it during a board meeting? Your boss is going to be horrified at the tweet and also pissed that you are tweeting during a meeting. And the final straw is to say how it means you wont have to get an abortion?

This woman is all sorts of dumb.

ihatedumbpeople: Good god...that chic has some issues...if I were her kid I'd be afraid of mommy and the bathtub...

Why? She chose the children she has and chose not to have any more. At least she is honest about it. Twittering it is a bit tacky IMO but I have never twittered and would keep something like that to myself.

I'm assuming she didn't have 20,000 followers before this incident made her Internet Famous.

I was in a meeting where a woman thought that she had miscarried.

Turns out she just sat on a burrito.

That's nothing. I heard of this poetry recital that was so awful that the poet's own major intestine leapt straight up through his neck and throttled his brain.

joyride75: If you have two kids, two abortions and two miscarriages your uterus should be taken from you.

Why? She had the children she wanted and at least she's taking care of it when she gets unintentionally pregnant. Her tweet was in poor taste but I won't blame her for her decisions. AS long as she's a good mom then this shouldn't matter and TFA doesn't say whether or not that's the case.

It never ceases to amaze me how stupid people are.

From TFA: "Having experienced two abortions and a miscarriage in the past, Trunk was sure she did not want another child..."

STOP GETTING PREGNANT, ASSHOLE!
 
2009-11-04 11:42:33 AM  
She said: "I believe any woman would choose miscarriage over abortion. It's as if nature has made the decision.

No, the birth control pills caused that.

Also, TWO ABORTIONS? What the fark? I don't believe in Hell, but I wish it existed for people like this. I hope she doesn't have pets or plants or anything. Too bad about her kids, but I guess they should be thankful she let them live at least.

i once had a meeting about sales forecasts blah blah lasted three hours and it was Friday afternoon, I swear the boss was just f__ with us. Anyway I got so bored I started to let the tip of a feces out of my a__hole in and out to see how far it would go. I would let a bit out then suck it back in. Anyway of course what heppened is I let too much out and it broke off. Disgusting. Another thing I learned is how bad it smells - normally you only smell it underwater. Anyway I told everyone I was sick and left.

She might. She writes a career advice column targeted at Gen Z types encouraging them to "break all the rules" in the workplace: steal your company's best ideas and people and go into business for yourself while still on the payroll; kiss ass excessively but only for people who can give you something; make yourself "indispensable" by sticking your nose in other people's workloads and showing how you can do everyone's job better than they can; and don't worry about the bodies you leave bloodied along the way because you will obviously never ever run into anyone you pissed offf in the future.

In other words, be a Twitter shiatter at work.

Inspecting her blog (new window), I see an entry entitled "Asperger's at work: Why I'm difficult in meetings."

So that explains a lot.

Why do women break their water before birth?

So if the baby dies they can have soup.
