By far, the funniest is overhearing each other's conversations. It's not that we try to eavesdrop. Honest! You just can't help but hear. Add in the fact that I could have exceptionally good hearing (as does my work BFF) and you get to hear some doozies.
In the past few months we've encountered:
- Some of the Sales guys SCREAM over March Madness. *Little tip, boys... the conference rooms aren't sound-proofed!*
- A new employee declare how dumb we all are and criticize the looks of a few people. *He's gone now...but we've also had a few run-ins where he stood in his office on his desk and grabbed his man-parts.*
- The ability to watch multiple office romances. Now, I've been with my company for almost seven years now. In that time, there have been at least a half dozen office weddings and LOVE is in the air lately. Just, um, not for me. But I'm cool with the people watching, trust me.
- Oh, and I had to yell at someone because they were doing their make-up while the fire alarm was going off. SERIOUSLY, I had to tell her three times that This is NOT a drill and I WILL tell her manager if she declines to follow our safety protocol. I'm nice...but I'm not waiting in a burning building so you can do your MAKE-UP.
Do I work at the only company that seems to have it's own soap opera? And if you office is like mine - can you pick out the heroes/heroines and villains/evil biatches?
