Me: Sometimes I feel like I’m herding cats.
Coworker: I think you mean cattle.
Me: No, I meant “cats.”
Coworker: That doesn’t make sense. Why would you be herding cats?

K, you are hilarious.
Wow, “cattle” is probably more correct for that coworker as his/her response displays a truly bovine lack of imagination.
Why do I get the feeling s/he is one of the cats to be hearded?
@ MB: So are you! Birds of a feather and all… 😀
@ callie: You have no idea how many times a day I do that…
@ Charles Pooter: “Bovine” is a very underused adjective. We can always count on your extraordinary vocabulary to revive underappreciated words, though.
@ Rorschach: How did you know? 😉
