That’s Just Not Funny

More evidence that I need to get a job where I don’t have to leave my house.

In my little ‘cubicle farm’ I sit near a group of billing specialists. These are people who call on behalf of the hospital and ask people where their money is for that gall bladder they had removed or for that ear they re-attached for them.

Needless to say, these folks are an ‘interesting’ lot.

Well, a woman walked by talking and another woman (who sits nearby) said:

“Is that Ms. Goldfarb* I hear?”

Ms. Goldfarb responds with a overly-sarcastic: What???

“Can you keep it down? Some people are trying to work here.”

What followed were cackles to the 10th degree. The woman who quipped about ‘keeping it down’ laughed at her own joke as though it was the most original, side-splitting thing anyone has ever said in the history of hospital billing humor.

You know? Maybe it is.
