I think we've all been out of phase with coworkers at one time or another. It's really no big deal unless the guy trying to bring you back into normal phase belongs in the copy room making copies because he's incompetant at anything more challenging. As most people in this thread can attest, the most irritating thing about being out of phase is that your coins still work in vending machines, but you can't push the buttons, so the office dipshit eventually comes out and does a snoppy dance when he scores your bag of potato chips. The fact that your coins work but your finger doesn't implies some very bad things about Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Co, and many other large retail corporations. I harbor strong suspicions that your ATM card will swipe regardless of phase.
