Maniac Monday

Six o’clock already I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissin’ Valentino By a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can’t be late ‘Cause then I guess I just won’t get paid
These are the days When you wish your bed was already made

Manic Monday – The Bangles

Here I am at work on one of the last Mondays. Only 5 Mondays to go. For some reason the time change woke me up early instead of late. It’s probably because I hate being late. It’s too stressful.

Sitting here thinking here this morning as the people started straggling in it occurred to me that some of the people I will miss. But the place I won’t miss at all.

The Yuck list:

  1. 30 people sharing one printer and the passive aggressive twits who take your print jobs and give it back 3 days later. Yeah right, you really didn’t notice this.
  2. The woman who brings her god-awful stinky fish and insists on eating at her desk. Office etiquette be damned!
  3. Being forcible gassed with paint fumes and sheetrock dust in the never ending task of cramming more people into less space. Must save a few bucks for those stakeholders, you know.
  4. The guy who clears his throat and snorts every 5 minutes.
  5. The woman who talks on the phone so load that your skull rattles.
  6. Never seeing the sunlight during the winter months. I start to feel like a troll.
  7. Using a public restroom everyday. Were these woman raised in a barn or what?
  8. Trying not to snore in All Hands Meetings.

  1. eew i know about the public restroom thing. why cant people just treat them like their home bathrooms? flush the loo already!!!

  2. those situations are very familiar … I am sure I wouldn´t miss them, lucky you that you won´t miss them very soon!

  3. Ugh! I could never go back… Really – I couldn’t… though the $$$ could be a tad tempting… but no… I’m staunch.

  4. Ugh, thanks for reminding me that I’m too crotchety to ever go back to working in an office. Oh, the humanity. Hope the next few weeks fly by, but please don’t stop blogging!

    1. Oh the humanity…LOL. Did you see the WKRP sitcom episode. “As God is my witness, I thought turkies could fly? I have no intention of giving up blogging. It’s too much fun.
