About There’s No I in Office: 4293 Meaningless Phrases to Keep Your Coworkers Smiling While Avoiding Actual Conversation
By Jacob Lentz and Paul Koehorst
Publisher: Ulysses Press (April 1, 2009)
Paperback: 377 pages
Includes phrases for every workplace situation from passing in the hall to waiting for a meeting to begin. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the greatest challenge in today’s office environment is not how to keep from being stabbed in the back by corporate climbers; it’s how to avoid becoming friends with the vacuous office idiots. Thanks to this book, the reader can make coworkers think he or she is witty, interesting, and likable while allowing them to remain total strangers.
Jacob Lentz, a Harvard graduate, is a writer for ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Show, where he has overseen daily creative content and produced numerous specials. Paul Koehorst is a writer and TV producer for the Ryan Seacrest radio show. They live in Los Angeles, CA.
