I read this in at least three different places before seeing it here (but that is not my point). Will someone please explain the Febreeze one? My chair smells like ass? I don't get it.

*looks at fixedgear, then shifts eyes slightly to the right and fixates an undefined point in the far distance*
*stands up, not too fast and not too slowly*

Well, it was nice of you to stop by ...

I don't know. It seems like most of these would just make you seem like a sociopath, which really isn't a reputation I want to have with my coworkers (I'd much rather be known as the quiet guy with the unbelievably large penis).

I have to admit that I use "the Fast Walk" whenever I get up out of my desk. I also swivel my chair as quickly as possible to the side to make it seem like I'm walking to a destination that's directly connected to what I'm working on, even if it's just to hide in a bathroom stall to take a nap for twenty-five minutes.

Yeah, I'm a temp.

He neglects to mention that "the Fast Walk" works best with a prop: a clipboard, a pad, even just a pen clutched with firmness and purpose.
