Me: Hey...I saw this on my desk. What's it for?
Person Who Shall Remain Unidentified: Oh, we're changing our policies on managing attendance next year, so that's just your personalized form.
Me: Oh, ok. So I don't need to do anything with it?
PWSRU: Why would you need to do anything with it?
Me: Um. I dunno...I thought there might be a problem with my vacation time, or something.
PWSRU: (incredibly defensive) I don't do hidden messages, okay, Beth? If there was a problem, I would've let you know.
Me: Okay! I just wanted to make sure that--
PWSRU: I don't do hidden messages.
Me: Right, I'm not saying you do, it's just--
PWSRU: I don't do hidden messages. I'm not like that. Okay? Really.
Me: Okay. I just wanted to clarify--
PWSRU: I just want to make sure you know that.
Me: Okay, well, I guess I'll go back to my desk now and poke out my own eyes with my letter opener.
Okay, everything except that last part.
