Latest RL slipup (they are ongoing)

I yelled out to a workmate that I was “just helping misdirect a phone line to the front desk” (complete with a total mental visualization of me shooting my crossbow towards the desk), for another workmate who was going on annual leave.

Got blank looks all round for that resulting in a hasty cry of “I mean redirect, redirect”.

    LOL! Well I am not the only one at least! I asked my co-worker if there were any local BREWfests going on in the area. He gave me a blank look and and I quickly recovered with OCTOBERfest. I then proceded to say Brewfest about three more times. He asked me why I kept saying Brewfest. I told him that it made more sense to me since it was really about the brews not that it was October. He agreed. I am a dork.

    Funny you should mention misdirection, I hear that word all the time irl. It always trips me up.

    It’s amusing when it all slips over into RL eh (loved the quick talking on ‘brewfest’ 🙂 ) – everyone must have been wondering why I wanted to deceive the phone… heee or thinking my inner dictionary was a bit out of whack.
