Business Trip Multiple Choice AND Signs of Spring

26 03 2009

Business Trip Multiple Choice
1) You’re headed to a remote office that you’ve never been to before. Do you:
a) Print off directions the night before
b) Hope your car-sharer brought directions

2) You’ve decided to meet a co-worker to share a ride. You both decide that you should meet at 7:45am. Do you:
a) Arrive at the designated meeting area at 7:47am, which may have included speeding and yelling internally at the person in line at Horton’s who clearly ordered a dozen of very specific doughnuts.
b) Arrive after 8am, stating that the car you borrowed was almost out of gas, you parked on the wrong side for gassing and then there was “a lot” of traffic.

3) Conversation has waned. Do you:
a) Discuss another “safe” topic such as food, politics, sports, weather…
b) Ask a question you asked before.

4) You get a call on your cell. It’s not work related, but of a seemingly urgent matter. You’re in a remote office building of which you don’t really know anyone. Do you:
a) Find a vacant office/step outside/ask the caller to call back

5) You’ve been treated to lunch by the office manager who thinks it’d be nice to take you on a quick tour of the office’s town and accomplishments. While the manager is talking, do you:
a) Listen to what he says, paying attention to landmarks
b) Talk over him
c) Ask about buildings that were pointed out on the first pass
d) Compare everything to your hometown

6) You’ve designated your ride sharer to be navigator. They tell you to “make a right” out of the parking lot. There is a light at the end of the parking lot and your lot faces another lot (at the same light). Do you (choose two):
a) Turn on your right signal
b) Turn out of the lot right away
c) Turn out of the lot when there’s not a truck coming from the other direction (making a left, into your two-lane side)
d) Not turn on your blinker

7) The day being over, you’re ready to head home. Your navigator didn’t bring return directions, so you’re trying to figure out how to get back to the interstate. Meanwhile, your phone rings again. Do you:
a) Ignore the phone while you sort out where you are
b) Pick up the phone (sans hands-free) TALK LOUDLY and miss where the navigator tells you to turn, thus dispensing you into a one-way-street “hood” where you turn down a one-way street and back up into traffic

8 ) Five people are fitting into a five-person vehicle. The shortest member volunteers to “take the hump”, thus allowing the driver to see out of the back window. Do you:
a) Argue with the short person
b) Allow the short person to “take the hump”

9) Crammed in the backseat, do you:
a) Stretch out completely, putting your arms around the headrests of the other two passengers
b) Cower as close to the door as you can because you’re not sure where that smell is coming from (though you have a good idea)

10) You’re driving along the interstate. You need to shift lanes. Do you:
a) Look, signal, blind-spot check, shift
b) Swerve

1. “Find a friend” with a GPS.

This really sounded like a bad trip and the real reason that I drive alone whenever possible…people drive me crazy!!!!!

This trip didn’t involve John Candy, Steve Martin, and a number of planes, trains, and automobiles, did it?

Well, Annoyance is Candy-esque in stature.

I totally just paid off my $36 in library fines. When I went to pay them, the librarian was like “$36?!! What did you DO?”


Seriously though the library is awesome!
