Short Attention Span Theater 1

Have you ever been talking to someone with an attention span so short, they tell you back a joke that you JUST told them?

I was at work today, loading heavy objects into people’s cars (the explanation of what they are and why would take pages) with a bunch of other people from work.

It was a group of five women and one man, and one woman was pretty impressed as I was checking her in that “a bunch of girls” could lift these 130-pound objects into people’s cars.

I joked to her, “Well, this way we don’t have to go to the gym later.”

We loaded two of these things into her SUV, and as she was walking away, she says to the rest of the group, “Well, at least you all don’t have to go to the gym later!”

I was like, hey, come back here, bitch! You stole my joke! And she didn’t even seem to notice that it was almost verbatim, what I had said earlier.
