Quoting movies can be a good or bad thing depending on how knowledgeable the surrounding people are of said movie. I have a quote for basically anything here at work, no matter what someone says and it usually is from a Will Ferrell movie. You mention baby jesus? I give you a Talladega Nights quote. You mention Bed, Bath and Beyond? I give you a little Old School. Usually it’s funny to me, but hardly anyone knows what I’m talking about which means I have to explain it making it NOT funny.
This excessive quoting comes out even more when I am nervous so you can imagine what I act like on a date or in a setting with lots of attractive men. I embarrass the shit out of myself. One day at the office I was walking into the mailroom right when male coworker #1 asked male coworker #2 what was in the box. NOW, myself having no filter proceeds to reenact, in my best Brad Pitt, the ending scene from Seven. They did not get it. There’s nothing more embarrassing than yelling “What’s in the box??!” to two men who have no clue what you are talking about. At that point you either have to pretend you are on drugs or just turn and walk away like nothing happened.
But the question is, would I want to date someone who doesn’t know what I’m talking about? I’m not sure but if you can’t tell me that “Milk was a bad choice!” came from Anchorman….than I will have to say good day sir!
