When Corporate Drones Break-up


Jack & Jill took a break from re-writing mission statements to have a power lunch and to discuss their relationship.

Jack: I think we should recontextualize our situation.

Jill: Agreed.

Jack: Excellent.

Jill: I tried to incentivize.

Jack: I appreciate the initiatives, if not the methodologies.

Jill: Did you not refer back to the schemas?

Jack: I did. I think the problem is that we differed on our views as to whether or not they were mission-critical.

Jill: I expected a convergence of solutions.

Jack: I expected more proactivity.

Jill: How is the new Blackberry treating you?

Jack: Excellent.

Jill: I think that I expected more of a frictionless transition, vis-a-vis our romantic paradigm.

Jack: I concur.

Jill: Are you satisfied with your ROI?

Jack: No. You?

Jill: No.

Jack: I am surprised by my own lack of functionality.

Jill: My hopes were for a robust, yet transparent, system.

Jack: Yes! With a synergistic partnership.

Jill: I’ve always seen myself as a bit of an envisioneer.

Jack: We’ve tried to optimize and revolutionize —

Jill: And we’ve tried to strategize and reinvent —

Jack: Exactly.

Jill: So, that is it?

Jack: That is it.


Jack: At the end of the day, do you think it was our lack of a holistic approach that did us in.

Jill: Well, that and the fact that it was like pulling teeth to get you to go down on me.

    Jill needs to take “tennis lessons” from Muffy’s tennis pro. Or maybe she just needs to hang out with Muffy, Bitzy and Prescott for awhile. That would be a hoot!

    *scratches head*

    *remembers he’s a software monkey and that’s why business speak is alien to him*

    *digs the punchline anyway*
