You know those expectation/reality-jokes?
I’ve kinda got one. Sort of. This one’s from the real life:
Several years ago I asked this guy what he does for a living. He told me his job title. Now because I don’t speak corporate jargon, I asked what he actually does there. He responded with more words I didn’t understand, like “consulting”, “middle management” and “synergy”. As I still must have looked confused, he finally decided to reveal how he mostly spends his days at work:
“I look for used basses on the internet and play computer MAHJONG.”
We soon became good friends.
