GET OFF MY TRAIN!!!!!
I know you guys remember that scene from "Ghost," starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Vincent Schiavelli. Vince's character was mad pissed that Sam Wheat was on his train, and he made his feelings known. "GET OFF MY TRAIN!!!"
Well back in 2003-2004, a couple of co-workers and I adopted that phrase. When someone was calling us constantly, or bugging us about stupid things, we would say that they needed to get off our train. It makes us laugh, relieves stress, and helps us vent our feelings to each other.
Today has truly been a day where everybody needs to get the hell off my train. Like I'm [ ] <-- THIS close to screaming it to somebody over the phone. Just like he hollered it in the movie. I need for people to understand - while I get paid to handle your claim, I DO NOT get paid for you to be talking to me any kind of way. This economy has really made people lose their minds and their home training.
RB called me earlier this morning...in the midst of me being hella busy. I told him I was busy, but he kept talking. Asking me about bowling, etc. DUDE - I am at work and I am BUSY. I'ma need you to get off my train, right now. This is your stop. I'll pick you back up later when I have time.
I was talking to this woman earlier. She strained her ankle. She wants money like she broke a bone. Ain't gonna happen. While I was calmly explaining to her that she had a soft tissue injury and not a fracture, this heffa hung up on me! I called her back and she let it go to voice mail. I left her a message, with attitude, and told her to take it or leave it and call me back. If I wasn't at work, the end of that message woulda been, "and I'ma need you to get off my train!"
When will people understand, my train does not have room for all this extra dumbness?? Whether this is your stop, or not, I'ma need you to GET OFF MY TRAIN with the nonsense!!!!! I'm not even stopping the train anymore...I'm just going to push people off while it's moving.
