This is the latest category I’m adding to my blog. Because sometimes there are days when that’s all you can say.
I’m struggling to get work done today because I’m just not into the monatony. Thank god for conference calls because that should take up most of my afternoon.
In my section of the office we have your standard 4-ft cublicle walls. Tall enough to make people forget that there are people sitting 2 feet away from them, but short enough for you to be able to hear EVERY FREAKING WORD SOMEONE IS SAYING. Half the time, it’s so quiet around here that I think the people one floor down can hear me type.
The other half of the time is when this woman, we’ll call her “Mary”, is in the office. She cackles…seriously. I don’t think I have ever before heard someone laugh and think about describing it as cackling. And today she happens to be in a very good mood so she has been doing it ALL DAY LONG. And she’s old and she has a Blackberry that she insists on having beep like a pager because I don’t think she can hear. She was in a meeting for an hour this morning and left it on her desk – to beep every 30 seconds or so starting at about 10:30 A.M.
Even now, she’s whispering and it’s STILL a cackle. And I’m going to throw her Blackberry out the window…
