I Fit Right In

My co-workers are a hoot. Really.

Those two guys bicker back and forth like an old married couple. Constant teasing and ribbing, throwing stuff....Oh, we get a lot of work done, but at least we have a bit of fun doing it.

Everyone has to have a nickname. I've got a couple, but didn't want to share what they are with those two. (that would have opened a whole new can of worms) Ken (my name for him, since his hair reminds me of a Ken Doll) is the worst for names. I was told the other day he had a name for me but was afraid it would offend me.

What is it? Stretch.

Hell, I've been called much worse than that...I have no issue with it.

I can't think of who D reminds me of, so I'll wait on his renaming. He's the one with the really strong Minnesota accent. His humor is very dry. He cracks me up.

Anyway - they decided to pull a few little pranks on me yesterday. The big one was they forwarded all their calls to my phone. Now, please understand - we are one busy shop. And have some major customers that are, let's just say less than pleased with our delivery right now. Anyway - my phone is now ringing off the hook with calls that I have no idea about.

Pretty good joke. I think today I'll get even. I'll pretend one of the calls is from our largest customer and just be stupid and rude. I can just see them dancin' at their desks trying to get me to transfer the call......

The other thing that has them going right now is my new neighbors. They are trying to get me to believe that my house has now been wired with cameras. I'm being watched. You should hear the scenerios they come up with. Hell - those boys should have a blog!!!

So practical jokes and teasing abound. I love that!! It's been awhile since I've had the opportunity to pull any of my pranks....and I've got fresh fodder here.

It's gonna be fun!!!

That's what makes work fun sometimes.

And your neighbors...all I can say...sorry :-(

Harvey's eyes just lit up!

It's not the neighbors installing those cameras... (Looks at the $50.00 bill with graffiti on it)

Yes. That's right. There are NO cameras in your house.

Could you move your computer chair just a little to the left next time you're using it, please?
