    This might be Cool Story Bro territory, but whatevs.

    A couple of ducks just flew straight into the windows next to my cubicle a little while ago. I didn't see it happen, but it scared the crap out of me. I looked up to see two huge water splashes on the windows, and thought somebody threw water balloons at the building at first.

    Everybody went to the windows and we watched as the male duck waddled away back towards the river like nothing happened. The female just sat there on the ground for about 5 minutes, while co-workers discussed going out and giving her bread (yeah, that's what cures a crushed spine). Eventually she got up and waddled off in a different direction, though she looked shaken up and limped a little.

    Oh, Friday afternoons in an office.

    lol, Speak of the devil. Few days ago, I was making something in the kitchen and I heard my dad laugh hysterically. I went out to see what was so funny and he said a sparrow flew into the window. :lol

    I find this story strangely amusing, considering we roast a hundred ducks a day...

    So the two ducks were together until they hit the window, then they went separate ways? Maybe the female was mad at the male for not asking for directions?

    Or, more likely, the male was mad at the female for giving wrong map directions...

    What?

    Yes, yes, I've heard quite a few jokes about the male not asking for directions...

    But yet, it was kinda funny and sad that he just waddled away from her and left her sitting there. Men are pigs.

    Pretty sure they hit the window because the female was driving....
    I had a duck fly into my windshield on 39/90 down by Janesville. Some tool infront of me swerved at them and startled them making them fly into me. :(
