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.
