As an avid movie fan I am always a bit tickled when it comes to awards season. That is what I am a bit bummed to find out that my favorites might be canceled this year due to the ongoing writers strike.
But don’t get me wrong. I am right there with my pen and pencil brothers and sisters. You keep striking until those nasty producers give you your money.
But as I was saying, I love award ceremonies. A few years back my mom and some friends and I even went and sat in the bleachers at the Golden Globes. I can probably say I am one of the few people who has slept in the Beverly Hills Hilton, the lobby, not in a room.
So it got me to thinking, should we have an awards show here in my office? Something along the line of “The Dundies” on the TV show The Office?
Of course we always have an employee of the year. That goes without saying. And I think someone each month gets a special parking spot but I don’t know how they get it or where the parking spot is actually located. For all I know it is across the highway and on the top of a parking deck.
Actually, the more I think about it the awards here would be pretty depressing. I don’t think we’d be allowed to award such things as: “Ugliest Shoes”, “Lowest Neckline”, or “Loud Pee-er”. I mean, let’s face it, no one is interested in the nice awards. Who cares if someone wins “Cleanest Desk”? We all want to know who would win “Spends Too Much Time In Bosses Office”.
What do you think? I know a lot of you who read this work in an office. What would you nominate your co-workers for? Leave me a comment. It’s up to you to make me smile this time on this rough day!
