Vending Machine Guy: Thanks. I make work for you. You see every week I am in some part responsible for the depleted number of Starbucks Mocha Frappuccinos in the machine. And every week, you fill it back up. Without you my productivity would be in the shitter. Thanks, you will be in the acknowledgements of my next pub.
Inter-Library Loan Personnel: You are very efficient and your efforts are much appreciated. Sometimes you send me things I request too fast, I honestly don’t even get around to reading them for months. But sometimes, I need that latest Plow Science paper like NOW. And you deliver, saving me the embarrassment of making some horribly egregious statement about the lack of plow advancements.
Anonymous Reviewer #3: Yes! I will look into that. Interesting point, much appreciated.
Department Office Assistant: I was really panicking about those two students who were working for me and weren’t getting their credit hours…I sent emails, made phone calls, etc…you managed to clear this up in like 3 minutes. Damn you are good. Thanks.
Office Door: Thank you for shutting.
