The SarcMarc: Best Communication Tool EVER!

The Best Communication Tool EVER!

I’ve spoken before about how the written word does not smile.

In other words, our written correspondence (a fancy phrase

for e-mail, because really, when was the last time you

“corresponded”?)sometimes gets misinterpreted when we use

humor. Because people can’t see the twinkle in your eyes,

they don’t always get that you’re trying to be funny.

Triply so for the use of sarcasm (which comes from a

Greek word meaning “to tear at flesh like a dog”).

But now, with the new “sarcmarc” emoticon, you can let

People know when you are being sarcastic! This is the BEST

invention ever! It only costs $1.99 to download, which I

did, and planned to show you, except it won’t work with

my e-zine mail list program. So now this is the biggest

communication blunder ever! Seriously. Because now you

can’t even tell if I’m being sarcastic or not!

Watch the goofy video and download the sarcmarc at: Your co-workers will thank-you.

(Once again, am I being sarcastic? Hmmmmm.)


Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Employees of Jump Associates in San Mateo, California use

wire “voodoo doll” figurines with photos of employees

who work in other locations to remind themselves of the

bigger team. Every conference call they line up the dolls

to represent the people they are chatting with. (No word on

whether or not they stick needles into each other’s dolls,

but something like this is a simple, fun way put a face to

everyone in the company, especially when they are working

from afar.)


Deep Thought of the Week (for “Mr. Safety Shoes”)

“Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in

their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a

mile away and you have their shoes.”


It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

I hope you arrived at work on time today, because it’s

“Punch the Clock Day!” today! (Unless this means we are

supposed to physically beat up a clock?? That sounds mean.

And a little dangerous. Let’s go with the first meaning.)
