People person

This week I’ve been surrounded by…wait…

What’s the plural of  “a people person?” People people?

People is such a funny word, no? P-e-o-p-l-e. It is spelled wrong and sounds like you are saying Peephole.

Anyway, this week I’ve encountered lots of…I’m going with it…people people. Only, they are the only ones that think they are people people. Real people don’t really get them, let alone like them. But, there they are, claiming the title of People Person.

Strangely, the only true people person I met this week confessed their hatred for — you guessed it — people.

People are strange.

One thought on “People person

  1. Reminds me of a story that happened last week. A friend of mine called and told me a story about some changes that were happening in the IT department. It turns out one of the employees didn’t want to work with the some of the other people on the team. He told his supervisor it was because these “other” people were uneducated. Of course, the imbecile supervisor told a bunch of “other people” but swore them to “secrecy” which – as we all know – never works out.

    The kicker? The employee making the complaint has a degree from a community college. 🙂
