Today's post is going to be a little different than the others. A few strange and annoying things occurred at work today, but they are not really connected to one "big story". So, I am going to give you a brief run down of the day in bullet form without any stories attached. Lets be honest here, sometimes the run down is better than the story itself. This is Thursday at the office.
- I counted five times The Boss said the following statement - " I had to read them the riot act." Now, you may wonder what that means exactly and you might even think that The Boss was having a bad day. Nope, that statement means that he had to give someone all the particulars of a certain topic. I'm not sure how that constitutes "the riot act," but if I could figure this man out I would be wealthy and living on an island right now.
- A woodpecker has been hanging around outside and today has started "pecking" at the metal building. The Boss is totally obsessed with this, he goes in and out and in and out to see what the bird is doing. By the end of the day he was exhausted from all the watching of this bird and declared that "the entire wildlife world is against him." I'm not sure what other "run ins" The Boss has had with this bird, but they must have some crazy history for him to believe all wildlife is against him
- Drew is fitting in nicely with the other crazies here. No, he still doesn't have a phone, desk or computer, but that is besides the point! Today he actually lost something he thought belonged to him.....his lunch! The Boss ate Drew's sandwich today! It wasn't like he just ate the wrong sandwich - The Boss didn't even bring a sandwich into the office. Drew didn't say anything, he just went out for lunch.
- The lens fell out of The Boss' reading glasses today (he has a habit of throwing them around) and he continued to use them, complaining each and every time he put them on. By the end of day, three employees had suggested he leave to get them fixed.
- I still don't think The Boss knows the difference between accounts payable (A/P) and accounts receivable (A/R). I continue to have a good eye roll at this one!
