Watch it. Learn it. Live it. Love it. And then, read on…..
Essentially, I wish my life at the office could be like the video shown. Instead, it is more like this:
Wednesday. 3pm. I’m in 7 hours deep. I have 6 paper cuts, a dead cell-phone battery, and a stack of files up to my neck. My desk partner, we’ll call her Tracy, decides to grace me with an unnecessary tale. A tale of a gold diggin’ cougar. Tracy likes to wear jewelry. A ring on almost every finger. Necklaces. Earrings. Which is great. I love me some jewels. But these jewels were given by a poor unfortunate soul. She tells me that her husband used to have a lot of money. But, within the first year of their marriage, he spent most of it on her. It baffled me. I just, I don’t even know her. Literally, have been working with her for 3 days and she practically tells me she’s worth nothing more than the metal upon her flesh. I nodded and mustered up a giggle, put my headphones in and resumed with my work.
Sadly, as it seems, that is going to be a normal day around that place.
Dunkin Donuts wasn’t as terrible this morning. The coffee is literally perfect every time so, I put up with the madness if need be. It makes me think about all of the people all over the world rushing to work, trying to get the kids to school, getting stuck in traffic and somehow always making time to have that morning cup of coffee. It’s truly a universal habit.
