The Funniest Thing SSG Never Intended to Say

(On a conference call at SSG's very conservative employer.)

SSG to Accountant: So is all of this liquidity pledged?
Accountant: Yes.
SSG: We really don't need to hold that much as collateral. I'm surprised they haven't complained about getting some of it released.
Accountant: Yeah good point, I'll have to see what's going on.
SSG: Maybe they haven't had to tap those assets in a while?

(Cut to SSG throwing the phone on mute and laughing hysterically.)

I wouldn't have been able to keep from crackin' up and muting the phone in time.

Hilarious! We have to mute our phones a lot on conference calls at the office. We constantly snicker like little kids.

Mute is a girl's best friend.

Oh, and alwaysalwaysalways be sure the call is terminated before you start the color commentary. Not that anything like that happened to me.

This is precisely why I shouldn't be allowed to speak on the phone for work purposes. Ever.

Oh I would not have been quick enough to hit that mute button. I'd have to cover up my snorts of laughter as coughs..

I wouldn't have been able to say it without cracking up, much less the after part. I wonder if anyone else lost it.

hahahaahhah that is hillarious! Gotta love the mute button. My biggest fear is that one day my mute button will all of the sudden not work.
