Whether you buy a single box or several of them in the office Super Bowl pool, just remember these people who are most likely to win.
Every day you work hard so that the boss can reap the financial reward. Then the super bowl pool circulates the office and he buys a few boxes, just to "support work place morale." Guess what? Morale is down on Monday because the boss comes in late (he was up late partying, after all), parks his Mercedes and takes a nap at his desk before claiming his cash prize and heading home early.
Every work place has at least one of these. This is the most despised person in the office, the one who spends more time kissing up to the boss than actually doing any work. Then she blames everyone else for her shortcomings. When the back stabbing kiss-up wins the Super Bowl pool, she will celebrate by buying lunch for the boss.
Hey you know that guy who drops in once a month? He is your company insurance agent, some sales representative or the guy who services the copy machine. Friendly fellow, he just happens to stop by on the Friday before the Super Bowl and overhears that there is only one box left to fill. He buys it just to be helpful--and then he wins the biggest payout. The guy who doesn't even work here is the first one at work Monday morning. And he's the only person smiling, too.
The co-worker who spends all day talking about her nine cats at home went and bought one box in each of their names. Wouldn't you know those felines won every quarter? And now your hard earned money will be spent on catnip and a designer litter box.
Before you open up your wallet and jot your name into those boxes, remind yourself of how many Super Bowl pools you have lost. Then remind yourself of all of the above people who have won. Think about if you really want to hand your money over to the winner, who chances are, will not be you.
Funny list. H5
So funny and so true. Sadly, I did not win my office pool this year. Five bucks down the drain.
I can't believe it! My cat DID win one quarter once so it can happen! Love it!!!
