Post Did you Remember to Bring your Briefs?

Think of things people in various professions might ask or tell one another that would sound totally dumbass if any of the rest of us said the same things.

As for the thread title, attorneys might ask, "Did you remember to bring your briefs?" and it wouldn't raise too many eyebrows.

Post Re: Did you Remember to Bring your Briefs?

Many years ago, I worked overseas for a DoD contractor, and the planes that were used there for intra-island conveyance were Shorts (Skyvans, I guess, but built by the Short brothers). Naturally, this led to typical jokes whenever the planes were grounded. The first time it happened, one of the guys actually ran in and said, "Our shorts are down."

Maybe that doesn't quite fit what you're asking for, but, hey, it reminded me. :P

Well... people who don't know I work at a TV station give me funny looks or let out little gasps whenever I walk into a building and loudly announce "I'm here to shoot so-and-so."

Exactly the kind of thing I was thinking about.

maybe there aren't as many examples as I thought there were, though.

I'd forgotten about that. I produced videos for 20 years, and I've said the same thing, with the same reaction.

edit: Although I must say that the security guard at the corporate headquarters of a prominent package moving concern was totally nonplussed when I told her, "We're here to shoot Fred Smith." Possibly because of the video gear I had rolled in with me on 2-wheelers.

Post Re: Did you Remember to Bring your Briefs?

The life of this thread was all too brief.

Cut off in its prime.

End of the siege.

And a shorts siege it was.

So why am I wasting server space for this post?

I asked myself the same question.

My answer was too legalistic.

So I threw it out of court.

Yes, I am the judge. No, that's not true; if I were you would dredd it.

Why am I rambling on in this way?

Perhaps I should ramble off.

Or go draw first blood...except I lost my red crayons.
