Tag Archives: The Office

In which I don’t quite get it.

Me: What is your occupation?

Client: Hairstylist…

Me: (writing) “Hairstylist.”

Client: …and esthetician.

Me: Hairstylist and anaesthetician?  That’s an interesting combination.

Client: ESThetician.

Me: Oh, I see. . . What is that?

Client: (tries to explain)

Me: I’ll just put “Hairstylist”.


esthetician: someone who specializes in the study of skin care.

anaesthetist: registered nurse and advanced practice nurse who has acquired additional education and training to administer anesthesia.

Quote of the Vacation

From The Office, season 3, “Product Recall“.  Unlike my last Office quotes, this one will only really make sense if you are familiar with the show.  The episode begins with Jim walking into the office dressed as and talking like Dwight.

Jim: Question. What kind of bear is best?

Dwight: That’s a ridiculous question.

Jim: False. Black bear.

Dwight: That’s debatable. There are basically two schools of thought–

Jim: Fact. Bears eat beets. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

Dwight: Bears do not… What is going on?! What are you doing?!

I quote it only because we watched this episode shortly before we left on our vacation and I quoted this throughout our time on the road: “Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.” (Emphasis on the “B”s)
