My Favorite Scott Note in a While…
I’ll admit…I’m the one who took the marker.
Scott’s notes might be one of my favorite things about my internship. At first, my feelings were a little hurt by the tone of the notes since they’re a bit…direct.
“Intern Pete, do a better job entering data. The letter F is not, and never will be, a number.”
But, that changed once I started finding some of the other notes that Scott writes for the team.
Here are just a few:
“Debbie, I tried to eat some cereal at the kitchen table, but I noticed that you have turned the table, which is supposed to be a breakfast and dinner place for EVERYONE into your own personal office without stopping to think of how the rest of us would eat food. I had to wander around eating my cereal like a caveman. A little consideration would be much appreciated!”
“Chase, Couldn’t help but notice that you have missed two storms because you were nowhere to be found when we took off. Great job! Keep it up and see what happens!”
“Frosty! If you post ONE MORE PICTURE OF ME ON YOUR PHOTO BLOG I WILL THROW ALL OF YOUR CAMERAS INTO LOW EARTH ORBIT! Thanks! Scott.”
I was under the impression that he was maybe just not very nice, but then I found a reminder note he wrote to himself.
“Hey idiot! Turn in your semester grades on time for once. I mean, is it that hard for you to do?”
I think that’s just how he writes notes.
