Note: Ever wonder what happens inside those office buildings? It’s not always work, work, work. This is as close to a true story as it gets. <blush> <blush> Have fun reading anyway.

It’s just another day in the office.

A moment ago, our secretary stopped by and said I’d be under her spell soon.

I nearly fell off my chair laughing.

To prove it, she asked me to raise my right foot and rotate it in clock-wise motion.

Then she told me to draw the number 666 in the air with my right hand.

She said that my foot would change direction.

I’d be darned, she was right, and there was nothing I could do about it.

Next time she heads down to my cube, I’m running to the nearest fire exit.

Our current boss thought it was a swell idea, too, so he continued the practice.

Feeling the Crunch

We’ve been very busy at work. As I mentioned in passing in an earlier post, our company lost people throughout last year and the group I work with (thought to be immune from layoffs) felt the axe in the last quarter. It goes without saying that we’re feeling the crunch. There are fewer bodies to handle the workload. I find it funny that after letting people go, management is now projecting more work ahead that contractors will be hired to help out.

Good Grief

Charlie Brown – Charles Schulz

It happened again today. The angel of death came. Another one bit the dust. We were stunned. We thought the layoffs were over, but we were mistaken.
