Apropos of something: Twitter

Check out this description and user name of this entity on Twitter. It tickled me.

On Being the Pivot Person In a Workplace Circle Jerk By Email

Mind you, Slacker cannot be bothered to answer the switchboard (she IS after all, the RECEPTIONIST) or put away supplies when they are delivered, or ensure we get our mail from next door, or make sure the outgoing mail GOES OUT, but fuck all, yes. By all means, let's have a circle jerk via email about supplies purchasing. Also worth noting, we only have a staff of THREE of us. Generally speaking the other two of us (non-Slacker) try not to be out of the office at precisely the same time. This, as they say in the vernacular is a NONSTARTER. Fuck her sideways.

Now, the circle jerk in question, I present to you, the email from the Slacker:

From: Slacker
Sent: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 3:26 PM
To: Me (and CC: TheWorkHorse)
Subject: [Left blank]

Should you be out of the office and someone needs to place an order for supply. Who and where should I contact to place the order?

From: Me
Sent: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 3:27 PM
To: Slacker

I believe Mary is my alternate.

From: Slacker

To: Me

Okay, should both you and your alternate be out of the office, and I need to place an order, who and where should I contact?

From: Me
Sent: Wednesday, June 18, 2014, 3:29 PM
Forwarded To: Mary

END NOTE: I refuse, on principle, to reply back to the Slacker. Why should I tell her about supplies purchasing? It's not like she actually does any work around here. Just counting down the days until she springs yet another pregnancy on us.

More Musings From the Workplace Shithouse

Picture this: Today. "9:35." I'm in left-most stall of six in a vacant restroom. About to settle in for some serious Rodin action, someone else enters the room and occupies the stall next to mine, which, is an act of aggression the likes of which I cannot abide. Set tazers to STUN. SSGT VINDALOO BBQ REPORTING FOR DOODY!


Portmanteau a la Minute: Halle-BLUE-iah!

A shout of praise, joy and gratitude upon discovering that the workplace shitter is so clean, it still has the blue cleanser in it.
