Thanks Cyber D

I'm glad that Cyber D still has e-mail exchanges with me once in a while. Luckily the other times I've published our e-conversations hasn't dissuaded him from communicating with me. So, I'll publish our correspondence from last week in the hopes that Cyber D will send me the receipt template that I asked for.

Cyber D,

Do you have any sort of template for a donation receipt?

I’m certain I can provide you something, but it will have to wait until next week. I don’t process receipts so I’ll need to touch base with someone else in my department in order to get a template. Otherwise I could craft something from scratch that would fill your needs but – again – I would have to put pen to paper no earlier than next week. I hope that’s okay. Let’s circle back at that time?

Oh God, I got office speak from you. OK, we’ll “circle back” and “touch base” on the “particulars of the project”.

F-you! Sometimes office speak is the most salient way to communicate politely. Would you have preferred…

Yeah I can help but I don’t have time now. Let me talk to some people or else I’ll just pull something out of my ass but you’ll have to wait your f-ing turn! Get in line!

How’s that?

That’s really not what I’d expect from someone I consider a friend either, but I guess we were raised differently. I suppose I’ll just take the high road and “wait my turn”.

pole



You'll notice that Cyber D is quick to lose his temper at 4:40 on a Friday. I should have known better than to ask something of him when I know he's already been drinking.

Yeah, but how sweet is the term, "smoke my pole"? You should ask him for more stuff that late on a Friday not less.

Dagromm said...

Churlita - That's become like his catch phrase. I think he even says that to his family members before he hangs up the phone with him.

Gyuss Baaltar said...

Man, CyberD has a short temper like John McCain

heather said...

g, good thing neither one of them will be president then isn't it?

cyber. you know i love you but you've got to wait until ~after~ you leave the work building to start drinking. the parking lot is ok. anything sooner means you get to go to meetings.

heather said...

shit! sorry dags, i forgot this was posted at your place rather than cyber's. lost my head there. forgive me?

the receipt template? for here or something else entirely.

(oddly enough the office speak stuff was ~almost~ sexy. scary)

Dagromm said...

Gus - Not really surprising is it?

Heather - I think Cyber D is sulking right now.

Heather - I appreciate you concerning yourself with my feelings. I know that you were just trying to help Cyber D with his issues.

The receipt is for a sponsorship/donation that the girl's soccer team received.

Office speak is never sexy unless it's purred into your ear by Angelina Jolie.

Does Cyber D hunt?

Susan said...

Oddly, I was working on a donation request form Friday around 4:45. I wasn't drinking though...it was a slow friday.

fringes said...

Funny post. I think I have something that can help that goes like this:

Thank you for your donation in the amount of ___ to ____. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
_____

heather said...

sorry dags, aj doesn't do it for me at all. she's kinda scary. let me rephrase that. she's scary.

Dagromm said...

Nore - Hunts for booty.

Susan - Do you have a template for a receipt, that could be used when filing taxes or even just on expense reports? Cyber D still hasn't sent me one.

Fringes - Will it fly with the IRS if I include ID number? I guess it probably will. They're not too picky, right?

Gyuss Baaltar said...

Is that like a TPS report? I'm not done with mine yet. Probably gonna have to work on Saturday.

NoRegrets said...

Why did my comment come to my email? What have you done??!!!

Cyber D said...

I'm busy, douche. You'll get what you want when I'm good and ready. How's that for generic white businessman speak?

Goo said...

I'm going downstairs now for happy hour in the boss's office. It keeps popping up in my calendar and his secretary just sent a reminder. I love working in the Church--you don't have to leave work to start drinking!

fringes said...

What the donor does with the IRS is up to the donor. If the soccer team is not a 501(c)3, don't worry about it. If it is, then add that somewhere on the receipt. The donor will know what to do with it if he has given soooo much that the standard charitable deduction allowance won't be enough.

Gyuss Baaltar said...

"white businessman" speak Cyber?

Wow! Sexist and rascist!

jaz said...

Goo--you mean I don't need to stick with diet coke and iced tea at the office? I didn't know.

Gyuss--maybe he was talking about the color of the paper? Surely he meant to just stop at sexist--or maybe he was purring it like Angelina and thought he was trying for sexiest.

Daggs--I'm still amused by your statement on the previous post where the discussion digressed to teaching about condoms and you ended with giving advice that it is best to learn hands-on.
