A Small Whine

It's Wednesday, which is the official day for whining. But given the nature of my whine, it's all a bit hypocritical.

Anyway, onward (and downward). I definitely buy into the not-blogging-about-work thing because you just never know when that could turn around and bite you in the ass. That said, I feel like I must say a little piece about one of my co-workers. I know everyone must have worked with someone similar at some point. You know the person I'm talking about, the person who no matter how good your mood when you arrive at work has driven you to the depths of despair by the time you leave.


Complaining, whining, grumbling, sighing. Etc, etc. Everything is miserable, everyone is stupid.

And then there's the nail clipping, finger sucking, burbing, non-stop eating...

Please tell me you want to share an office space with this individual. Please? I'll be more than happy to donate them.

Sorry; I'll have to leave you in pain. I once shared an office with the department gossip. I started coming in at 7 a.m. so that I'd have a couple of quiet hours to get work done ... she figured it out ... and started joining me at 7 a.m. I still hate her.

LOL, Beth!

The latest development: he and his wife are trying to quit smoking. This ought to be fun for everyone.

Is this the one and same cologne-boy? I kind of hope so, because otherwise you are surrounded by tools on all sides.

That would be the same winner, Sara.

Oh, boy, What a drag. I would like to go on about some of the people I shared an office with, but what if they read my blog? AK!

One of them you know. Let's call per (short for person) Sweet Per, though per was anything but, except when per wanted soemthing. Like sex or your time or something else of yours. Per never did any work, whined. Interrupted what you were doing to complain. Followed young boys around making passes. I could go on. GAK! Sweet Per was unloved at per previous place of employment as well, but in spite of a bad recommendation, we hired PER!
