Callie, come on – you are not that dumb
At the beginning of "It’s 5 o’clock somewhere", Callie mentioned that she presented the Frozen Concoction maker Thursday night but ‘didn’t realize’ that they were really DRINKS with alcohol – she said "oh I only had a sip". First off, she DID know unless she was totally not paying attention when the vendor mentioned she was putting in the tequila (I watched Callie watch her pour it into the Margarita mix). And she had "sips" of three different drinks with alcohol and hung onto and kept sipping on the first one for the rest of the show.
I don’t care that she was drinking while working – I just don’t think she was very smart about lying about it (or even bringing it up at all) the day after. It totally threw whatever credibility she had with me out the window.
Callie, you did it – just own it.
I just go along with it. I just say ‘Yesmm, masha’ whenever someone talks or behaves in a dumb way.
Some people are good a playing dumb. When people feel guilty or ashamed about something they’ve done, they use the "Oh, I didn’t realize defense." They think it absolves them of their actions. People also use that defense when they copy or imitate someone. I have that kind of problem with someone at work. Every time I make a suggestion, she comes along the next day or a couple of days later and makes the same exact suggestion. She acts as if it was her original idea, and then she claims she "never heard me say anything." Oh, oh, oh. Duh!
