pepper spray

Hi. I don't have anything planned for today so I'm just going to freestyle.

I used to have Thursdays off, but not anymore. Here I am at work. How's my day going so far? Well, one of my colleagues just responded to the question "What's up?" by saying "The sky!" and then laughing uncontrollably. That's how my day is going so far.

In a few weeks I will have worked here for five years. I remember the last year pretty well, and the one before that, and the first year a little bit, but years two and three are a total blur. Funny thing, memory.

I'm hunkering down quietly in my desk. I can't see anything but I can hear the world around me. Two people are having an argument about faxes from Key Largo. Seems that no one wants to deal with those faxes. Two other people are having a more pleasant but no less irritating conversation about ice cream. A suitable topic t'be sure, but it's been going on for at least ten minutes and that's too long.

I think I should just strap on my ipod to drown all this out, but then it's easier for people to sneak up on me, and I like to be ever vigilant.

Some guy just sneezed, and a few seconds later mumbled "No one said 'bless you'..."


Someone should make a movie or a show about how terrible office jobs can be. Now that's something I'd like to see.


  1. It's so easy to start empathising with someone who goes down to his local gun store, arms himself to the teeth and heads back to work.

    In fact, for most, "work", and especially "conversation at the water cooler", redefines banality.

    And there's been more than a few times in my career that I've wanted to lob one over into the next cubicle!

  2. I think what Chester means by "lob one over" is that he wants to poop over into the next cubicle.

    That would be awesome!

    "No one said thank you"
    "someone just shit on me"


  3. LOL Gatsby - to "lob one over" is to throw something. I thought Chester was talking about a hand grenade - as in "lobbing a hand grenade over the cubicle".

    Or maybe ... he was talking about exploding poop?

  4. It may seem that its polar environment hockey can be too challenging to find out as a adult but starting just as one adult seemingly doable along with starting just as one adult perhaps has their advantages. Ice baseball is very complicated to find out than alot of team athletics because you will need to learn tips on how to skate simply uses learn tips on how to play its polar environment hockey.
