The Arch Nemesis of an Office Building

The Thundercats had Mumm-Ra.


Batman has these guys.


Vampires have this chick.


And this.



And this*.


But the number one enemy of an office building is one of these...


Which is why I have been VERY nervous at work the past couple of days.  On Tuesday we heard a noise outside the office building around 2:30 PM.  It sounded like a leaf blower, which would have been a normal sound if it wasn't February in Chicago.  So me and a few co-workers head to the windows and see a helicopter.

So what?  I know, my building is along a major highway.  Traffic copters are all over the place.

But this wasn't a traffic copter.  It was hovering right outside my building, about 50 feet off the ground.  And as soon as we peaked out the windows it took off.

Weird.

And it got even weirder when it appeared again yesterday.  And once again, took off as soon as it saw us  looking at it.

It could be that I have seen WAY too many movies, but all I could think about were the scenes where the bad guy is piloting a helicopter, chasing the action star, and loses control and the copter goes smashing into the innocent office building, killing god only knows how many cubicle dwellers.

I swear, if I see Bruce Willis anywhere NEAR my office in the next few days I am done.  Gone.  Grabbing my bag and hitting the road.

I am not going to be an action movie casualty.

Maybe it's not an action film, maybe it's a nature doc, observing the cubicle dwellers in their natural habitat.

That is weird! Ask around the building and see if anyone knows what's up...
Could be a scout for a film checking out location.

six bars of soap in a circle with another bar in the middle.
no effing idea thank you very much.
driving me crazy, and it's not a long trip.
I googled and got soap operas. i tried to match the shape or symbol, no luck. the different colors = nada. the photo is just samples from a soap company.
please tell us, please, please.

That's so freaky!!! I saw one of those huge army Apache helicopters outside of our building. I'm sure they were just doing a test run but I was like WTF?!

GS said...

Those are soaps??!!! I thought those were pills... no clue I don't get it.

I had no idea my followers were so pop culture retarded.

No one can tell me of a vampire who would be repelled by soap?

THINK LIKE A 13 YEAR OLD GIRL.

GregoryJ said...

Still don't get it. I have no experience as a 13 year old girl. Not personally, nor as a parent, uncle, teacher or anything else. I don't think I've ever even known a thirteen year old girl, except when I was 13 and that is ancient history.
Please tell, me. Please, Please.

I think it is a pilot messing with all of you in the office because he had nothing better to do...LOL...or maybe, it's Big Brother watching you...did you pay your taxes?

P.S. I don't get the soap and the vampire thing either...are they dirty little creatures? I grew up with the stick in the heart thing, sunlight kills, and the crucifix...

It may be the corkscrew delivery copter.

Great article, I think you covered everything there. I would say freelancing is quite hard especially if you are not used to working on your own, can be quite hard to motivate yourself also. . . we all know what it is like to stare at the monitor.
