Random Thoughts - Cake and Nerds...
- I jumped in my car this morning and while I was saying goodbye to my husband, he noticed I had a partially
flat tire. Quickly we switched vehicles, so he could take mine in to have the tire checked. I was thinking what a great husband I had, until he announced that his truck needed to be filled up and it would be great if I could get the oil changed for him on my lunch. $65 later, I was on way to work…ughh!
- My co-worker on the other side of my cube wall has voluntarily left our company. Although her last day was only on Friday, I’m already missing commiserating with her. I suspect I will miss her more come payday, as she was our payroll coordinator and they haven’t found a replacement for her yet.
- I arrived at work this morning to find a carrot cake sitting on my desk - not just one piece, but a whole cake! I have our receptionist to thank for that. I just happened to mention in passing yesterday, that I love carrot cake and viola – today I have cake. She is awesome!
- I work for a software development company and the majority of my co-workers are socially awkward nerds. Just passing them in the hallway, making eye contact and saying “hello” sends them into a frenzy. They don’t know how to react and a simple “hello” makes them stutter and stumble. Is it wrong that I love to torment them and find pleasure in the obvious discomfort that “hello” brings to them? Imagine the damage “How are you?” would do.
