How did that happen, kittens?
And the month certainly started off with a bang. A co-worker returned from his (very late, very long) lunch around 4PM completely schnockered. And proceeded to go on a full-force profanity-laced rant about the incompetant people with whom we work. I was in and out of the office during this time (some of it was avoidance), but apparently he dropped the c-bomb in reference to a female colleague. He left the office around 4:50.
Now, I understand the need to rant about this job, because -honestly- some of the people here are not very clever. And, by "not very clever" I mean "dumber than a box of rocks." and the move at the glacial pace of a government agency. So it can be frustrating.
However, it has not yet driven me to drink (during working hours). And, one would hope that if it ever does, I will have the sense to go home after lunch rather than return to the office and show my ass to my co-workers.
To my drunken and slovenly co-worker's credit, he did apologize to the co-worker who bore the brunt of his rant, and, this morning, he apologized to the rest of us in the office. Still, if my brunt-bearing co-worker wanted, she could totally have the guy fired.
Good times, for sure.
So, I went home. Had a few beers. Ate frozen pizza and leftover cake. And made a metric shit-ton of habenero hot sauce.
Tonight, I am doing laundry. And going to bed early.
Have a great day!
