At work today, the super awkward guy called our office trying to rent space. He's a party planner, but he barely knows how to talk. I thought he asked for an open bar. Turns out he asked for an ochre bar. Ochre. Seriously? I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, getting caught in a lie was my worst fear. I'd put about three more hours on my time sheet than I actually worked. My boss called me into his office. I was shaking. Then he told me I needed to improve my handwriting. I was relieved- but still offended. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I spoke to one of the smartest people at our company. I really respect the guy. He has an MBA, a JD, and a Masters in Religious Philosophy. Of course, you wouldn't believe his actual job. He's working as a temp. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, there was some sort of sign posted about having "temper tantrums" at work. At first, I thought it was for people who were bringing their kids into the workplace. Turns out it was intended for sales guys. Like my boss. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, one of my ex-employees came into work in a really obvious disguise. Like, a mustache and fedora. I immediately caught him and told him to leave. He still tried a fake French accent. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I got yet another rejection at a job fair. Big surprise. But there was an actual surprise after it all was over. One of the recruiters called me. "Just to reiterate," he said, "we can't hire you." That hurt my feelings. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I saw a little boy standing outside. His mouth was open and tilted up at the sky. I walked out to see what he was doing. "I'm catching raindrops," he said. I looked up- the air conditioner was dripping from the floor above. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, something unusual was in the air. Has that ever happened to you? Just a sense that something was wrong or a little off? Almost like a smell? A scent of disquiet in the normal routine? Yeah, it was a homeless dude passed out in back. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, the new guy wanted a little help learning the ropes of our building. Whatever. We ended with a tour of the roof, which is usually a good way to do things. Turns out this time it wasn't. The new guy shut the door behind us- we were stuck up there for three hours. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was furiously chewing gum to try and stay awake. I suddenly felt a huge pain in my right side. Turns out I ruptured a crown (or something) and cracked my teeth. Now I have a 1200 dollar dentist bill. And I'm still tired. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, three people wanted to buy the same exact red t-shirt and a roll of duct tape. Turns out they were all preparing for a huge bar crawl around the city. I was preparing to spend another night at work. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I admit that I was staring at one of our secretaries after work. So sue me- she's pretty. Well, turns out she saw me and came over afterwards to talk to me. "I'm married," she said. "But more importantly, I know how little money you make." I'm dumbemployed.
