(I am back and we have some things to discuss. Can't... control.... anger!"

The building I work in is old, in a big city and surrounded by alleys that people use as a toilet. So needless to say it smells frequently. Typically the stank season starts in late March - but due to global warming stank season starts earlier each year!!

The fun part about rank-ass smell is talking about it. John and I have a sport where we try to describe the smell - here is a trascript of an actual conversation.

[I walk into our company's computer room. The sewer smell is so bad it's like someone smacked me in the face. I decide to call John and tell him.]

J - yeah
S - yeah
S - Dude, the server room reaks (reeks, wreeks?)
J - bad?
S - It's like your family went on vacation for the week and your prankster friend shit in a microwave safe bowl - put it in the microwave and set it to run for 99 hours.
J - Then another neighbor came buy and saw the fire and pissed on it to put it out. Then ate it - then puked it up.
S - Then you come home and smell that.
J - Right.
S - Nice.
S - Alright. [hangs up]

this doesn't even look like a complete conversation in print but it is completely accurate.

Maybe because every conversation Scott has is incomplete because he never says 'bye'. He just hangs up. I'm just saying. Please explain to me why the server room smells. It's not pee alley.

Did it smell like a cross between blue cheese, baked carrots, porch couch old man & dog? Cause thats what I think piss alleys smell like. Especially when you wake up in one.
