Eddie’s Right!

Okay, the other stuff is coming soon, but I had to post this now while it is hot and fresh out the kitchen…

There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING, better than being right when someone tries to tell you that you are wrong.

Recently I had an occasi0n at work where I booked a meeting in a conference room. I was in the room having my meeting and this guy comes in and says, “Um, I have this room booked.” I was like, “Um… No… I am pretty sure I have it.”

But being human I do make some mistakes (Even though it is VERY rare like lightning striking twice in the same place rare) so I pulled up the online meeting manager tool, sure enough, I was right – the room belonged to me. I immediately jumped up and did the Eddie’s Right Dance which looks a lot like the funky chicken and the tootsie roll and the cabbage patch all rolled into one. Talk about humiliation… I love to pile it on in layers.

So today I am at work and I p0int out a document that is wrong and someone has the audacity to say, “What is wrong with it?!?!” The NERVE. So I quickly pulled up the document and high-lighted in red and bolded and italicized the wrongness and sent it back with a short video clip of me doing the Eddie’s Right Dance.

Which leads me to this…

You only think I guessed wrong! That’s what’s so funny! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a Eddie Renz when right or wrong is on the line! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha!
