Have I ever told you guys, another reason I enjoy working where I do (a high-end women’s clothing boutique, where it’s me and a bunch of mature women with children and families), is because I can use lines they don’t know from TV shows they don’t watch, and they think I’m clever.
Dee: “The list may not have been printed off…”
Mel: “It wasn’t printed off?”
Dee: “Okay, I forgot to print it off.”
Me: “No, you can stick with ‘may not have’; it was a very masterful use of the passive voice.”
Dee: “Was it? Haha, I didn’t even realize! But it’s alright, I’ll own up.”
