This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
I was hanging out this morning (Saturday that is) and talking to Kevin when he informed me that he had to go into work. Now, lately this has been the norm but still, I wanted to ask him about it.
Me: what do you have to do there?
Kevin: I have about 10 projects going on
Me: perhaps I could help
Me: tell me about one of the projects
So Kevin launches into this explanation about conveyors and how he’s basically drawing up a flow chart of where pieces of wood go to which equipment system and how once he has it all drawn up he has to do all the engineering for it and then give it to the programmers to program.
Kevin: so what do you think?
Me: I don’t really think that’s “my cup of tea”
Kevin: your “cup of tea?”
Me: yeah, when I used to have to do flow charts I would do the program and then when I had figured it out and I was done then I’d do the flow chart
Kevin: you were probably that person who wrote down the outline after you wrote the paper
Kevin: so Lynn, what do you think your “cup of tea” is?
Me: hmmm… I’m not sure if I actually have a “cup of tea”
Kevin: so you’re basically unemployable and useless which we knew
Me: well I’m really good at some things
Kevin: … for example?
Me: I’m amazing at pep talks and I’m really good at dealing with medical situations
Kevin: yeah … not sure that’s a job description
Me: I can do certain aspects of a lot of jobs
Kevin: also not really helpful
Me: well, I suppose it’s good that you can do your own job without my help then
Kevin: yes, I agree
So there you are! I have absolutely NO CUP OF TEA? How about you guys? What’s your “cup of tea?”
