Now it's lunchtime, and stabbiness has taken over. I just realized that three things happened leading to the stabbiness, so I am sharing them with you for Three on Thursday, aren't you glad???
Event the First: One of my co-workers eats at her desk all of the time, even though we are not supposed to do that. It's annoying mainly because of the food smells when you are trying to work. This morning she arrived and found evidence of a mouse having been in her desk. She called the maitenance dept and they were out of snap traps, so put down a glue trap. A mouse was almost immediately caught, and the poor creature was so distraught it broke my heart, and still makes me feel terrible to think what happened to it. Then said co-worker cleaned out her desk drawers and HOLY CRAP she had a small grocery store snack aisle in there!
Stabbiness Level: Blood Red
Event the Second: One of our co-workers is out this entire week at a workshop. She has several volunteers who come in, and she told them to come in anyway, because her assistant would set them up to work, etc. Today's volunteer starts at 10 a.m. and showed up about ten minutes ahead of time, and of course the assistant had not even gotten to work yet (long story, we're not even going there). I tried to help the volunteer, but couldn't really do much. The assistant finally showed up about 10:10, and got the volunteer settled. Then he came back into our office and was annoyed because she "showed up early." It took every fiber in my being not to say that she probably showed up early because a) she takes public transportation, and b) she probably didn't want to be late. And that maybe he should have made an effort to show up early ...
Stabbiness Level: ____ Brown
Event the Third: I started to watch a knitting podcast at lunchtime, and about five minutes in, the person's phone rang, and she stopped and said, "I just got a text - let me see what it's about." She checked the text, typed out a response and then picked up again with what she had been saying. If you know you are going to be recording, and you forgot to turn off your phone (which, I'm sorry come on), and you get a text/call/whatever, wouldn't you say "Excuse me" turn the phone off, and then continue?? Let's face it, if you are waiting for a text saying the brain transplant surgery was a success, maybe you shouldn't have started recording.
Stabbiness Level: Annoyed Orange
And now that I have dragged you down with me, I wish you a good day and hope your day is going better and will continue to go better than mine has! :-)
