Things I have overheard recently

· Philip Jacob

A few choice quotes from recent adventures:

  1. “Gold is the new silver” at a shop in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA
  2. “60 is the new 30” at a dinner party
  3. “40 is the new 30” at a 40th birthday party
  4. Woman: I’m going to work in Bill’s new Web 2.0 group

Man: Cool, with AJAX and all that neat stuff?

Woman, obviously clueless: Um… sure. So when do we have my goodbye party?


*: You're just changing cost centers. You don't get a party for that. You only get a party if you leave.
