Old Black Guys Say the Coolest Things . . .

I work with this old Black guy, and when you walk by and say a quick hello, he never says "how ya' doin'" like any other schmo.  He will say things like . . .

"We do what we can."

"You got to work hard around here."

"I got to get in character . . ."

"Can I put somethin' in your ear right quick?" (That's when he wants to tell me some good office dirt)

The beauty of this is, you remember the time you passed this guy in the hall, unlike all the rest of the stiffs you have innocuous hellos and goodbyes with through out your 9 to 5. 

"Do I really have to tell you how much cooler I am than you?"




Try going through your work day like a cool, old, Black man on your next work day, and let me know how it goes . . .

He reminds me a bit of the black chauffeur in Joe Versus the Volcano, if you ever saw that movie. Maybe it would be fun to make a list of great black movie quotes. "Kiss my entire ass!" from Harlem Nights would be on my list.

Kiss my ENTIRE ass is a great one! I'm stealing that!

There was no one cooler or blacker than Richard Pryor.
