Not much going on. One more week of work and then I will take some time off since I didn’t get to go on the August mom’s trip and I need to turn in some vacation time before the holidays. You know it will be New Year’s tomorrow, right?
Anyhow, I am sure this will seem like the Longest Week Ever so I’m trying to take note of the little things that are…well..unique..about this place without getting into too much trouble
Here’s what I have around me:
- The Whistler
- The Desk Sitter
- The Maniacal Laugher
The whistler is, I assume, self explanatory other than to clarify that he is simply whistling to music vs blasting out cat calls :-0 Still – it’s the person who sits closest to me and…wow does it get irritating!
I just noticed the desk sitter today. I think I had seen her in the past lean UP onto a desk – propping one leg up and leaning to look over the shoulder of the actual desk occupant to view their monitor. I suppose that’s not too unusual when you need to look at something together – though I usually just stand back or else pull up a chair…. but today – she was completely sitting on the end of a desk. Both feet dangling. Like a little girl. Which was odd because she’s older than me and is a department manager!
The laugher is scary. She is quite a bit down the way from me so I cannot imagine how bad it is working in her immediate area. I don’t actually know for sure who it is, though I have a suspicion based on the direction. All I know is when she goes off, it is neither mirthful nor infectious. It’s just downright frightening and I am not exaggerating when I say it creeps me out to the point of chills down my spine.
