The Office (Not THE Office)

Things that suck about my office:

That I have to listen to 107.7 all day, every day. Right now it's "Piano Man", just a bit ago it was "Wind Beneath My Wings" and any minute now that self-indulgent whiny pretentious James Blunt's "Beautiful" will come on. A few weeks ago a co-worker switched the radio to 105.1. During their Retro Bistro lunch hour they played "Push It" and I knew that wouldn't go over well with the honest, churchgoing ladies in my dept. The next day it was back to 107.7.

That I am the only one in my dept who has ever heard of Quentin Tarantino.

That Jim doesn't work here. Or Pam, either.

That sometimes I have to be here at 7:45am, and sometimes I have to stay until 9pm, and sometimes I have to work on Saturdays.

That one of my churchgoing co-workers thinks that all gay people have made a conscious choice to be sinful, and will go to hell -- and that our gay co-worker is a friend of hers, and seemingly her hateful, rightous attitude bothers me more than it bothers him.

That it is too hot outside to go for a walk during my lunch break without getting sweaty. That I don't have any place to walk other than the parking lot.

That I have 4 more hours of work to go today, my 9.5 hour day (+ 1 hour commute).

They just announced it -- James Blunt coming up after the commercial break.
