Man, these OSHA requirements are getting out of hand.

The boss felt obligated to give his kid a job and this is all he is qualified to do.

I guess this explains the woody station wagon out front.

Who knew water coolers had undertow?

Is it just me or has Roberts been acting a little strange since he was assigned the Coppertone account?

What I lack in humor, I’ll make up in frequency this month…

>I tell you, Pete, these cutbacks just plain suck. First we lose the cappuccino maker, and now our former Baywatch hotty has been replaced by ‘Hulk Hogan’ over here.

>The new guy makes YOU uncomfortable? During my afternoon nap yesterday, he tried to rescue me with ‘mouth-to-mouth.’

>When it’s my turn to be “water guard,” I am SO drawing the line at wearing Spandex.

1. Well, it's sure cut down on the horseplay around here.


2. Ya, I smell it too! Kinda like suntan lotion.


3. Phil in Human Resources says he had the most experience "monitoring those using the water".


4. And that's the boss's nephew. Be thankful he's only here for the summer.


5. Bill's insufferable since he won the big office pool!


6...and if you even think about filling up a coffee pot you get the megaphone.


7. Drink up quick! He's about ready to launch into another Rudy Vallee number.


8. Part of the "office life's a beach" campaign I guess.

Have you met the new guy from the Malibu office?

That's Mr. Wilson, the big chair man. He can be rather loud, but something about him tells me he CAN save the company.

Jerry COMPLETELY misunderstands the idea of an office pool.

All I said was, I thought the water tasted of a little chlorine, and the next thing you know, HE shows up.

You should see him do laps in the thing.

Hey, I thought he was crazy when he brought in the chair and started taking his breaks up there, but chicks DO dig a guy in uniform.

Everyone in the office stays fully hydrated. Jerry takes water safety VERY seriously.
