So at work yesterday one of my supervisors, who’s always in an upbeat and joking mood, asked me a numerical question about what I’ll get on something. In my own usual upbeat way, I said “A Bajillion!” He just stared at me as if I just did the heil or something.
“Come on, realistically.”
“Uh… one or two”
“Give me a specific number”
“There you go”.
Defeated, I exclaimed “I’m just trying to be positive!” He just basically just shook his head and walked away.
So you’re not the only one who got rudely shot down by using bajillion in an upbeat manner, hell of a way to keep someone motivated huh. Oh babu…
