Question: Is it cardshark or cardsharp? I could look this up, but I'm so goddamned bored and stuck at work that it'll be more entertaining for you to do it for me.

I've sunk so low.

Bored, bored, bored, bored.
No electro shock therapy, no unnecessary medication, nothing.
Bored.

(And I know several ways to make the boredom stop, yet you persist in working in a different state.)

(still working on the ice cream thing, though.)

Actually one word: cardsharp or cardsharper. The implication is that the person is a habitual cheat.

The other term you are thinking of is "pool shark" which doesn't have the implication of cheating, although possibly it does imply misleading others about your skill level until after all their money is in your pocket.

Perfect. Thanks :)

Now let's move on to harder phrases that my boss apparently doesn't know. Here's one: "Why don't you guys get out of here." or "You guys can go home now."

Ass.

Hey, I got hit with "let's talk about this outline now so we can think about this over the weekend." And I'm thinking "we who? You and your tapeworm?"

So what are you planning to cook tomorrow? And what time should I look for you guys?
