This week, we have both Monday and Friday off, making for a rather short week. Since there are only three days off in between two four-day weekends, lots of people are on vacation this week. During lunch today, one of my coworkers made an observation:
Guy: It’s so quiet and empty and easy to get lunch today, it kind of makes you wish for a big layoff…
Me: … That’s going on my quotes page …
Awesome. He’s right, though, it’s pretty nice for it to be empty sometimes, but certainly a layoff wouldn’t be so good. :)
Overheard today from the stairwell:
Muffled voices from person on “push-to-talk” cell phone.
Guy: I’m sorry, did you say a subpoena?
Most annoying noise, bar none: push-to-talk in a concrete stairwell.
We’re moving cubes tomorrow. All of us but the manager, it seems… hah.
Manager: [exasperated] I’m not moving. I’m not on the move list!
Employee: Isn’t that a good thing?
Manager: No! I’m supposed to be moving! I don’t want to be the only one left over here!
I’m sure they’ll sort it out. :)
Heard over the cubicle wall today… whirrrreeeerrrrrr…
I got up to inspect. Ah yes, the strange noise would be a coworker flying a battery powered helicopter around the office. :)
People talk about the most random things while they walk around the hallways in a cubicle farm. Heard today from two women heading to a meeting:
Woman1: At least we got the sex offender off there.
Woman2: Yeah I know!
