so_sharlemaine is talking about having to go into the office since her DSL was down.
Once in the office I docked into a workstation, because since I telecommute I don't keep a private office anymore. So I was hearing all the conversations of the sales consultants on the phone with clients and talking across the cubicles to each other. They frequently use terms and acronyms such as POP, POS, SBDN, TKR, etc. I'm pretty comfortable with these guys. I've worked around them for 8 years off and on. I was focused and working intently on my report, oblivious to the conversations and activity around me when someone called out "What's PWP???"
"Porn without plot," I called back absent-mindedly without even thinking where I was or what they were talking about.
I was very popular the rest of the day. Lots of smiles, conversation and interest in what I had been doing lately. And I had all kinds of invitations for happy hour and after work socializing. So much for the conservative, square, professional reputation I've worked so hard on.
