10 ways that geeks excuse themselvesNovember 13, 2007
Everyone does it, but how many people do it with grace? I’m sure there was a point in time where you had to go potty and excuse yourself around others. You could be polite and say, “excuse me, I have to use the rest room”, or you could be blunt and say “I gotta go take a dump”.
Then there are the us geeks (or whatever you call your nerdy self) who rely on our extensive knowledge of useless references. Next time you have to drop a deuce, use one the following and impress those around you:
“Excuse me I have to go…”
- send and email with an attachment
- clear my cache
- re-route my network
- declare some variables
- empty my recycling bin
- re-compile my code
- overclock my processor
- drop some tables from my database
- concatenate my strings
There you have it. Next time you have to go, do it with style. Feel free to add your own.
