Manic Monday #19

I think there should be a work mandate that no one can talk to me on a Monday until after I have been at my desk for an hour.  Think about it.  I've just come back from two days where I gave no thought to work. I haven't had my coffee.  I haven't check my voicemail.  I haven't read through my e-mails.  How do you expect me to answer your questions within five minutes of walking in the door?

I was accused of being telepathic today because I knew someone wanted something from the printer.  This could be because over the past 3 weeks I have watched every episode of Heroes ever made.  But it's more likely that I was at the printer and saw a piece of paper come out with their name on it and thought I would be nice.  

The electric stapler is broken again and no one will own up to it.  This is why we can't have nice things people.

Today was a rough day.  I knew because my computer mouse kept trying to hang itself by jumping off my desk.  I would not have been surprise to see "Brooks Was Here" scratched into the edge of my desk.



I barely left my desk today which means I was either really busy or super lazy.  I suspect one of these two reasons is also why I only had one cup of coffee today.

You are, at long last, linked.

Ditto to Point #1. Seriously, could that just be written into the employee handbook?

Easy fix to the mouse problem...go wireless.

I HATE when you first come into work and people start asking you questions. One of my biggest pet peeves. I've had associates try to ask me things before I've even made it to the backroom to take my coat off.
