Unfortunate Word-Choice Theater Presents...

A direct quote from something currently in my work in-box:
This eMail is your notification that you have been assigned the role of Sub for the convention indicated below.
Bold italics, no less.

Um.....OK, I guess. If it's for the good of the company and everything.

Ask to have it changed to "U-Boat".

LOL at Johan; I was going to ask if you were going as Tuna, or Steak-n-cheese. ROFL

A most excellent post title, btw.

Argonaut said...

Y'all are innocent! Heh.

Enusan said...

The reference to food is definitely not what makes the choice of that term unfortunate in my mind. I think Argonaut and I are on the same wavelength.

So good of you to be willing to take one for the team, Mr. Hornswoggler.

I believe Argonaut and Enusan took "Sub" about the same way I did -- however, I never said anything about "taking one."

Ahem.
