Real Work Conversations: In Hell

My boss: (picking up the phone) "Dante's Seventh Level."

Me: "The icy center."

Boss: "Just sec." (To me) "What was that? I heard 'icy' something."

Me: "Icy center. That's what you get when you get to the seventh level. It's the icy center."

Boss: "I thought it was a gooey center."

Me: "That's a Tootsie-Pop."


  1. Yeah, EXCEPT the icy center is the Ninth Level.

  2. Clearly I need to brush up on my Dante.

    ::Goes off to review the map of Hell::

    Either that, or we draw the line at Fraud and Treachery? Um, yeah. That must be it...
