08:41 am - what the hell kind of place is this?
How can any office not have a March Madness pool, but then have one for the Masters. I don't care if you are a sports fan or not... this makes absolutely NO SENSE!

People bet on golf? That's the least exciting betting pool ever.

apparently... I'm not even sure how such a thing would work. Like do you just pick your favorite to win? Is there some kind of weird bracket? Do handicaps figure in?

I suppose I could go ask someone who's betting in it... but then I'd have to talk to them about it...

Wow, I'm not a big sports fan or whatever, but... that's just really sad.

yeah... I'd get it if it were like an office with a total policy against gambling or with no sports fans, so there was no pool at all. And I'd get it if there were tons of gamblers and or sport fans and they were betting on March Madness, the Masters, slug racing and kitten boxing...

but betting on the Masters and not March Madness? WTF?

Please tell me the majority of you coworkers are middle aged and caucasian, so I don't have to adjust my worldview?

its kinda a split between 20-30something white marketing/recruiting people and the billable people who are almost entire Indian immigrants and one chinese guy. And of course there's me, but I'm a contractor and my last day is Friday.

Hmm, okay. I was afraid I'd have to *gasp* change my worldview or something.[/snarky]

it still bugs me... I've worked in many offices predominated by middle-aged white men... they all tend to bet on March Madness... it just ain't right, I tell ya

Pod people, perhaps?

that's as likely an explanation as any...

oh yeah, happy birthday (kept meaning to comment in your LJ, but getting distracted)

Ah, thank you. Better late than never, I always say. Now if only I could get my boss to agree with me...

It's a shame you won't be there much longer, otherwise I'd suggest trying to set up other betting pools. Like for cricket.

maybe next week, since I'll have some freetime, I'll bring some chickens down and have cock fights in the parking lot...
