Important Notice to All who Talk to Customers:

Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day. Imagine the confusion! The irritation! The hilarity! I can't even begin to comprehend how marvelous it would be if we all banned together in an effort to celebrate this most excellent holiday.

"Argh, this is LizaMarie, thank ye fer callin me workplace. Can I help ya or wouldje prefer a bullet t'yer gullet fer disturbin' me morning cuppa joe?"

I think it would make the work day go by much faster :roll:

One day this day fell on a Saturday at Kinko's.

We had a blast. We literally took orders like: "Arrrgh...and what will ye be wantin' today, missy? Ya scurvy dogs! We be needin' 250 on Bright Yellow! Heave ho, lads, Cap'n here wants 'em quick like! Arrrgh!"

I'd say about 99 percent of the customers got the biggest kick out of it. Many played along. Every now and then you'd get some joyless walking corpse, but for the most part, people had a lot of fun with it. :lol:

By the way, LizaMarie, your phone answering message about killed me.

I brought me hat today, and I gave out a few "Arrgh!s" but I just don't need to talk much at work. It's a quiet day. :-(

This reminds me.....

Did you know that there are only three letters in the pirate alphabet? AAAAAAY.....AAAAYYYYEEEEE.....and AAAAARRRRR.....

A young pirate went to the movies, but they wouldn't let him in. You know why?
It was rated AAAARRRRR!!!!

A pirate went to college. You know what he majored in?
AAAAAARRRRRRTTTTTTT!

A pirate joined the military. Guess which branch he joined?



Go ahead, guess.










No, NOT the AAAARRRMMMYY!


He joined the Navy, of course. He's a bloody pirate!

No, it has to be "Handsomely, now!" not "Quick, like."

That said, I have to admit I chickened out. I hang my head in shame, especially since there were all sorts of pirate-related stuff I could've gotten at the Powell's Books stores at my airport. :o
