Embracing your inner Ron Burgundy

When to say it: When a co-worker wastes your time telling you a long-winded and uninteresting story that makes you want to light yourself on fire.


"Big deal. I am very professional."

When to say it: This is best used by customer service reps when customers are being argumentative.


"It's science."

When to say it: Anytime you are losing an argument, to back up something completely made up.


"Why don't you go back to your home on Whore Island?"

When to say it: Only to the guy at work, who would take it as a compliment.

"For just one night, let's not be Co-workers.

Let's be Co-people."

When to say it: When you’re out for drinks and some office kill-joy won’t stop talking about work.


"Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention? I've just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. I need all of you to stop what you're doing and listen."

When to say it: Anytime you have something completely useless and inane that you want everyone to listen to.


"Sweet Lincoln's mullet!"

When to say it: When the boss hands you your paycheck.


"I'm in a glass case of emotion."

When to say it: When a customer or co-worker asks you to do something you don’t want to do.


"I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago."

When to say it: When you’re caught bulls***ing your way through a question that the boss asked you — that you probably should know the answer to.

"Be sure to get dressed up in your classiest suit and go door to door to get candy from strangers."

When to say it: When you wish the annoying co-worker in the back cubicle ill will.
