Slappable Penguins

Some days I just want to slap people: the phone answerers at my bank who don’t talk to each other and therefore give me conflicting information, the guy at Home Depot who always scowls and says, “What?” and then repeats the wrong information when I buy paint, the Republicans in Congress, that kind of people. Which is when I go to this gif:

Hope your day is filled with unslappable penguins.

  1. So glad I’m not the only one that has to resist that urge, although came pretty close once!

  2. We had a sign in page for an application at work and this gif was on it. But the powers that be decided it was unprofessional and made the developers change it. It made me smile every time.

    The powers that be have no sense of humor.

  3. Thank you! I so wanted to slap someone when the IT dept. took away my ergonomic keyboard this morning. After 15+ years, totally unable to function without one.

    1. You should make them replace it or bring in your own. I can’t live without mine and can barely function when I have to type on my home laptop.

  4. Yeah, I love this gif too. Except I view it another way: I’m the poor schmoe who’s plodding along minding my own business when some butthead smacks me upside the haid and knocks me into the drink…

  5. I wonder why the one penguin slapped the other? I mean, is this normal penguin behavior? Maybe it was trolling for leopard seals, to see if any were in the vicinity before taking a dip himself?

    Yeah, that’s how my mind works. Even when I think it’s a hilarious gif.

  6. I don’t want to slap anyone (today, at least), but the idea of diving into ice water is extremely appealing in this heat wave!

  7. I work in financial services and I feel like doing that to a few of our firm’s clients.

  8. Visiting the hot Kootenays. Lots of slappable people around. Or maybe it’s just me that’s hot and cranky. Wish I could hire that penguin, but he’d have to bring some of that snow. Maybe I should have a smoothie.

  9. (-: Penguins. They look so sophisticated in their “tuxes” and then they go and do something like that (-:. And so many people look like normal, sane, intelligent people, and then go and do something like Not Schedule My Classes. I’d slap someone, but I’m not quite sure who deserves it the most.

  10. So many people I want to slap this week. Especially in that “reach out and do it when they least expect it” way. You are a goddess.
    And not just because I am having the week from hell and your books (rererereading, of course) are helping to get me through it.

  11. I just go to notalwaysright.com and notalwaysworking.com and that cheers me up enormously. Love the penguins.
