Dominion, the parent company of the power plant where I work, has come out with this little gem called the "Safety Rap". So, for your edification... Razz

Dictionary Definition : Kelsey-- Frequently called "Kels," this female specimen of Homo Sapiens belongs to the Literary Cabinet universe. Although she is a young member, she has shown her maturity to be above other species, sometimes. "Kelsey" can behave quite crazy in her own right. One of her most noticeable traits is paranoia and knowledge of trolls.

I bet you've been running around the stock room all morning singing that song and *safe*-ing, Stockroomasaur.

One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

Tell you what, Laura: when I have my next outage (in October), and I work all those hours again, if personnel from Siemens (our biggest vendor) come here from their main office in Germany, I may ask you to teach me some choice words in German to mutter behind their backs when they start driving me nuts. lol!

Let's start with some basic ones:

What the f***?

F*** off.

Get the f*** out of here.

Like I said, this will be muttered after they have walked away, not said to their faces. As tempting as that would be, I rather enjoy being employed here. Laughing

Yeah, right. lol!

Although I will say I probably let my exasperation lead me to ask a question of Laura that was, in hindsight, a tad bit inappropriate. Embarassed

What the f***? - Was zum Teufel? ("Vaas tsoom toifl?")

Get the f*** out of here. - Verpiss dich (sing.) / Verpisst euch (pl.) ("Fair-piss dich" (I don't know how to transcribe "ch"!) / "Fair-pisst oich")



There you go *g*

Dictionary Definition : Tourterelle--a unique specimen of the female gender of Homo Sapiens that exhibits behaviors such as excessive procrastination, chocolate creation (in direct contradiction to the Law of Conservation of Matter), and overall insanity. Common names include Nicholle, CQ (Chocolate Queen), Crackhead, and Miss Martini Maniac. Lately, this individual has reportedly been seen dancing in a banana costume and drinking an excessive amount of martinis.

I predict Paul muttering one of these phrases under his breath, only to have the other person whip around and start yelling at him in rapid German.

Just realized something. Is your company actually called "Dominion", Paul? And am I the only one to find that strange?

Yes, it is called Dominion. They own a number of power plants, primarily in the eastern half of the US. Why does the name strike you as strange?

It may be the context in which I learned the word - for me "dominion" is always associated with "evil".

Nah. It doesn't mean evil at all. Laughing

Well, the two that was here are now gone. They were here just to test some equipment. I expect some more to come during the week, however, along with plenty of American employees from Siemens. If I have a chance to talk with them I'll see what part of Germany they come from, just in case you're curious.
