Just Dumb

At work today, I really, really needed to cut my nails. I'm a cashier, and they're gross. But the only scissors were in the break room. I was all alone and cut quickly. Then I saw three of my coworkers watching me from the doorway. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I prayed that they'd finally turn on the heat. They realized it was a problem- and handed all of us company branded blankets. Somehow, it's not the same. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I used my break at Target to play the demo videogames. Of course, my manager said I needed to leave those to the customers. I've spent my last three paychecks on videogames. But if they want, I'm happy to go to Best Buy instead. Good customer service, guys. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I finished a trucking route from Maine to LA. I know. I celebrated the occasion by having a big meal. At which point the waitress told me I was "eating lazy." Sweetie, you drive like I drive. Then you can call me lazy. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I spoke with our HR guy about my 401k. He said that the crash has still depleted almost everything. "The good news," he said, "is that less money is easier to manage." Thanks, Joe. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I scrubbed down the counters. I admit, I kind of enjoy tedious work like that. But this time, I zoned out so much I didn't realize that three people were standing behind me, watching me do it. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I realized my hot/cold spells, of which my male coworkers complain when I adjust the thermostat, may not be due to hot flashes. I discovered a 2 inch open gap at the window top. We've been in the building 14 months and thought it was painted shut. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my assistant manager's phone rang. Beep...Beep...Beep. He asked me what that noise was. "What?" I asked. "That beep beep beep noise, what was that?" He asked again. It was his damn phone. In his pocket! I had to tell him what his own phone sounded like. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I overheard my co-worker say "Scallops and green onions, they're the same things. Aren't they?" I didn't correct them. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my co-worker asked a customer if they wanted insurance on "the adjacent property that's next to the subject property?" The subject property is, of course, the one they actually own. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we had a mandatory staff meeting. One of my co-workers and I have taken to writing haikus during meetings that waste our time. We have over 50 pages of haikus (with at least 5 per page) written in the past 6 months. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a co-worker complained of a back injury he suffered lifting a 1 pound case of cherry tomatoes. When he filled out his accident report he spelled "warehouse" as "whorehouse". I'm dumbemployed.
