As I am sure you all know, Skype is a fantastic chatting tool. We utilize it exclusively where I work, since many of our employees are international. But since Skype is also a free tool that many, many people use, you other will have not only your coworkers, but friends and family linked. Yesterday, my coworker, A*, started this chat:
A*: my mom wanted me to ask you (even though i know the answer) if you are looking for a cruise roomie...apparently a single lady friend of theirs is interested in going
A*: yeah that's what i said
Jaimi: Or tell her this - I will expect sexual favors from whomever I have bunk with me
A*: ummmm nah you can tell her that
A*: oh look, my mom's on skype...you can tell her yourself
Jaimi: Ok, I sent it to her
A*: oh lord
I did make it a bit more classy than I implied to A*.
Jaimi: Good morning! I'm sorry A*s MOM, but I will be unable to host your friend in my cabin. If i have anyone in my cabin, it will be someone with the proper tools to aid me in further enjoying my trip. And I'm pretty sure your friend lacks those tools.
Jaimi: And by tools, I mean a penis.
A*s MOM: OMG, understood!!
Jaimi: Just so you know. ;)
A*s MOM: I hear you loud and clear!!...it will be fun, maybe you'll meet the man on the cruise...
Jaimi: I won't discount the possibility
A*s MOM: true, things do happen on crusies..unexpected things...
So yet another example of me treating everyone equally. Pretty much as if you really care, which I assume everyone does if it is about my happiness.
