Workaday

Standard


Between R Man’s disc problems, my bronchitis, our wedding, out of town guests, and my deep seated willingness to screw around, I have missed most of the last month at work. Today was my first full day back and I have to say, this work stuff sucks. I sulked at my desk trying to calculate when I can get to retire, but unfortunately, I can’t count that high. I did have the pleasure of composing a frosty reply to a disgruntled member of the public’s email in which I only barely refrained from addressing her as Crazy Bitch, but you know, thrills like that can only take you so far and soon as I was back to brooding.

I was very pleasantly surprised by office mates all congratulating me on my recent wedding. Even though we’re sitting in one of the most left-leaning cities in America, none of them are exactly the new Jon Stewart and some of them probably think Palin is a swell gal, and yet they enthusiastically wished us well without batting an eye about two old poofs tying the knot. It was very gratifying.

Now if the Crazy Bitch will just go away.

  1. …my work experience is that the Crazy Bitch never quite goes away, but, if carefully managed, she can be turned into Pathetically Grateful or at least Angry at the System, Not the Representative.When I get back to my own desk, I fully expect to confront some 600 e-mails, at least 20% from Crazy Bitch in various incarnations…

  2. First, let me say I agree with ayem8y! And second, honey, I can sympathize: my own return to the working world has included a big ol’ bout of fall allergies. And I’m having to pack my office. Can I come back?
