Had an interesting conversation with a co-worker yesterday. First a little bit of background: She sits next to me. She's a motor-mouth. She's extremely nosy. She's a huge gossip. She will take any opportunity to throw you under the bus. But, she can be very sweet at times . . . she's just annoying, she doesn't always play well with others & she needs some work on her social skills.
I had a wonderful day yesterday because she didn't come in until 2:00 p.m. Then she disappeared for over an hour. I got so much work done!! Twenty minutes before I was to finish my workday, we had this conversation.
I'm going to call her NR (for Nosy Rosy).
So here's the conversation:
NR: Where is Molly today?
Me: I don't know.
NR: Was she here this morning?
NR: Well I know she's off on Tuesday afternoons, but have you seen her today?
NR: Well why don't you know? She's on your team.
Me: I haven't seen her today & she's not on the leave calendar. I don't know where she is.
NR: Didn't they [referring to my boss] tell you?
NR: What do you mean 'no'?
Me: NR (I used her real name here): What about 'I don't know' don't you understand?
Yep, the hamster is definitely dead . . . as a door nail!!
We have conversations like this often. It's exhausting!!!
Oh, and for the record: She's a red-head & I'm the blonde.
Another funny for you:
Today: Beware of dead hamsters!!
Blessings to you!!
