The workplace is a great source of great unknown lines (this one being maybe my favourite). Sometimes you have to be there, sometimes it could work for every workplace, which is why I love the two I am going to publish now. I hesitated before publishing, I try to stay discreet about work, but since for the record there is no real animosity between the protagonists, I thought I couldn't get those unpublished.
So my manager is off for a little bit. Some of my other colleagues didn't know about it and one asked me:
"So Guillaume, did you finally snap and kill him?"
This is the first great unknown line. It is even funnier because I look nothing like a murderer. Seriously. I don't. I wouldn't snap. I am no Norman Bates. I mean, I actually like my manager, my colleagues and my work environment, even on bad days I am surprised I prefer it to a school I used to work for. Anyway, I guess I don't mind having a sinister reputation, because I replied:
"I wouldn't do something that stupid, I'll be the prime suspect."
Which I think is both diplomatic and slightly Sollozzo-esque (remember that line in The Godfather, "If I'd wanted to kill you, you'd be dead already").

Two great unknown lines

Maybe they suspect you because of the very fact that you DON'T look or act like a murderer. It's always the quiet, polite non-assuming blokes that are the ones that go 'postal' on the boss! At least that's what I read on the internet! And if you read it on the internet, then it must be true right?! j/k ;o)
Guillaume, Love your sense of humor and your good sense.
