I don't blame him. She is a bit hot (without glasses LOL)

On a related note, that was the most brilliant piece of EPIC I have ever read. :tmb: thanks for sharing :D

Yet another really novel way to quit - only better than the other one! Beats the resignation letter. :p

Ah so she's one of those women who gets offended when men find her attractive. She probably punches them in the face for opening doors too. :p :rolleyes:

I think it was more so the manner of which she was 'complimented.' Calling her a HPOA isn't exactly a desired title. ;)

I'm a fan of her :]

She's hot. As she's got the attitude. Nice! :cln:

HPOA. There are better, less offensive compliments.

I'm hoping that there were other reasons that she quit, and this was just the straw that broke the camel's back.

Poor camel.
But in all seriousness, she did say why she was quitting.
Her boss, Spencer, evidently treated her like crap, had a horrible temper, bad breath, and was a womaniser. If that isn't enough to quit, I don't know what is. :p

It's really an addicting game though, but still, rather pathetic of him.
And I can't find anything discrediting the happenings, so I'm sure it's real. :)
Not to mention it's on Buzznet, a popular site.

Just because one article discredits it doesn't mean it's fake.
This story, upon further research, has been posted on multiple other websites, none of which claiming ownership of the original stunt - so suffice to say, any of them claiming it's fake is a disreputable statement. :)

If you keep clicking the sources of the articles, they all eventually link back to TheChive though, which doesn't seem like a reputable site to me.

For example, Buzznet got it from Dealbreaker and Dealbreaker got it from TheChive. TheChive claims they got it directly from one of Jenny's coworkers and doesn't list any other sources.

This joke is from TheChive. It's fake, just get over it. It's still funny, but not real.

What proof do you have that it originated from TheChive?

erosan
11-08-10, 03:43
I wasn't being rude.

This isn't 100% related to the story being from thechive but it does tell that it's fake. Read the comments if you need more proof.

i read the title wrong when i first saw the thread, it says 'quits using a dry erase board' (took me a little while to figure out you meant whiteboard) i originally thought she was giving up using one and i was like "so what?" until i read deeper into the thread. this is absolute gold, i'm gonna have to save all the pics and email them to mum, she'll love this

Real or fake, I wish I had come up with the idea first for how I would want to quit MY job! :pi:

Catracoth
11-08-10, 12:41
If you want even more proof then let's turn the tables. How do YOU know it's real?

I was waiting for that.
The link I provided in the original post shows the story being revealed by one of Jenny's co-workers. According to Ward Dragon, the story posted on Buzznet was found at Dealbreaker (I still can't find where it says that) and Dealbreaker claims they got it from TheChive.
Well, what's funny is that Buzznet is a far more reputable website than TheChive (I would know, I frequent Buzznet religiously) and the pictures there have no watermark or logo. The pictures on TheChive do.
The way I see it that makes the most sense is that it was originally posted on Buzznet as a true story, TheChive takes the story, slaps their logo on the pictures and claims ownership and also calling foul - probably because they wish they could really have posted the story first. ;)

I'm yet to find anything reputable that discredits the story and proving it's fake. Your links cite no sources, so who's to say they're reputable? I'm not being sceptical, I'm just looking at the facts.

And telling me to "Get over it" was indeed a rude statement.

According to Ward Dragon, the story posted on Buzznet was found at Dealbreaker (I still can't find where it says that) and Dealbreaker claims they got it from TheChive.

If you scroll all the way to the bottom, below the last picture it says "story via Dealbreaker" and links to the story on Dealbreaker. Then in the Dealbreaker story where it says "Assistant Jenny was putting her own spin on things" that links to the story on TheChive. They just posted an update that it is indeed a hoax. Her name is really Elyse Porterfield and she's an actress in LA. I can't link to it because that site has vulgar content in general, though.

Nice, although this isn't to do with jobs I have a story that reminded me of this.

Anyway so in High School my friend grafittied a large male body part onto our other friend's book. The teacher found out (she wasn't supposed to but she was a nosy *******) so got in touch with the girls parents. Who incidently, have the same sense of humor as their daughter. They had a serious discussion about what was right and wrong and after the meeting my friends mum had stolen a permanent marker from the board a drew a huge version of the same picture in every window of that teachers car. Needless to say she never got involved with others business again...

the principal at my high school (deputy when this happened) also stuck her nose in where it didn't belong. some friends of mine were taling about funny things you can do with condoms and this nosy woman barged in, both my friends got detention, so we got revenge, we duct taped a condom to the exhaust of her car as well as filling some with flour and sticking them under the wheels of her car, it had rained earlier that day too so the ground and her car were both wet. when she drove over these condoms they exploded and flour got on the bottom of her car, the sides and all over the outside of the wheels (i actually don't think she got it off), and then she kept going and the fumes from her car inflated the condom we'd taped to the exhaust pipe to the point of exploding, and that it did, she must have thought she'd been shot or something, she jumped so hard her head hit the roof of her car
