RL through Wow colored glasses

Sometimes Wow colors your perception of the real world. At these times I find it immensely amusing.. and usually have no one handy to share it with.

At work, I often consult with internal users. Yesterday I got an email from an internal user

Hey [Nibuca],
I have a qq about how this works. When I do [blah blah blah]

It made me laugh out loud when I finally figured out that the user had a “quick question” not a “whiny complaint”.

On the drive to work I stopped at an intersection with two busses coming towards me. One had a blue lit up name.. and the other had a purple lit up name. I couldn’t help wondering what it was about the second bus that made it epic.

  1. I had to share this with a coworker xDDDD who is an ex-wow-player from Malfurion.

    Maybe the second bus had +34 stam and +32 str?

  2. Nice stories, made me smile 🙂

    It’s a pity we usually can’t share these little WoW-moments with co-workers, I assume you’re like me and no one close plays WoW.

    At least we have other bloggers to share with! 🙂

  3. Absolutely love the bus colors thing. Must be a helluva wild ride on that purple tagged one.

    In a meeting yesterday with the CIO and COO of my company, a giant international bank, I did a double-take when one of the officers mentioned “all the aggro that he generated” by publishing a document that was contrary to the popular opinion at the company.

    I tried testing the waters by dropping a line with the word Horde in it, and a little while later, said something with the word Alliance in it, looking out the corner of my eye for a reaction from the guy, but there was none, so I suppose “aggro” is sometimes used outside the MMO space.

    Gave me a laugh though.

  4. LOL, funny!

    There was this one time I was stick out in traffic on the highway. And Holland – it be flat. Very flat. So you can see all around you. There was this power line pole and a hawk flying near it. Yet the hawk was staying still, it looked like, not flapping its wings, yet staying in the same position. My first thought? “Huh, must be bugged.”
