picture this with me, will you

i'm in the kitchen here at work trying to put a new water in the water cooler. you know, the large, heavy ones? normally, i have no problem with this, but today apparently, i can't do anything right (i spilled tea all over my shirt on the drive in. i mean, ALL OVER. *laughs*).
so i picked up the 5000 pound jug of water.. turned it over and it splipped out of my hands! it landed on the trash can (kind of) with a super loud crashing sound and then water came bursting out of the top of it. (think soda can you just shook up and then opened for fun) it sprayed a ton of water all over the windows and the floor. and i can't stop fucking laughing! i'm sitting in there, on the floor, cracking up. what else can you do when that happens but laugh at yourself. i revel in my dorkiness!

OMG- I can completely relate. In fact, I'm having flashbacks to chem lab in high school. And yeah, all you can do is laugh.

Btw, I had no idea that you and Becky hadn't met. I've been telling my husband that I thought you might be friends from college or something. You two have a great rapport.

bwahahahahaha! I'd laugh, too. I told one of my co-workers about your, um, mishap, as we seem to be the only two people who ever replace the bottle on our office cooler. Once, a few years ago, I started replacing the bottle, lost my grip a bit and ended up splashing another co-worker. She was about to leave to meet a client and had to change. I felt really bad -- but I could not stop giggling. Oh, wait, that could be because I'm evil.

that was hilarious! i would have been laughing my ass off at you! then i would have helped you clean up. :)

so....i'm the coworker who uses the last of the water and then disappears w/o replacing the big water jug....i'm sure my coworkers hate me....but they don't realize that i would do exactly what you did if i tried to put the new one in!

Jenn said...

HAHAHA I can TOTALLY picture this in my head. I'd be on the floor hysterically laughing too! So did anyone come by and help you?

That is so funny! It's nice to know there is someone else out there who makes blunders besides me.
