I love where I work. My company is a SMALL business, with only 14 employees. We're pretty tight. Especially the 4 of us in leasing. For some
BUT (see, there it is) sometimes the conversations get a little awful, even for me. I could probably transcribe tapes of what goes on in our office every day for your reading pleasure, and you would either be horrified, or rolling on the floor laughing. Yesterday, even I was horrified. The girls brought up my least favorite subject: The pimples on their husbands' backs. And how they pop them. And the matter that comes out.
Did I mention that it was 9:30 in the morning? And that I was trying to eat oatmeal at the time? Yeeeeah. I worked in health care for a long time. I can talk diarrhea and eat rocky rad ice cream at the same time without batting an eyelash. But for whatever reason, the lack of my blessed nectar (coffee), oatmeal, and oozing puss just doesn't work for me.
I have a feeling I probably just lost a reader or two. Sorry guys. This is really how I am.
And if you could only hear the things that our Residents say to us on a daily basis. We work hard to maintain good relationships with our Residents, and it definitely shows in how deeply they like to delve into our personal lives. Just over a week ago, one Resident was surprised to find out my boss had her first child at 20. The Resident asked, "Were you WILD?" To which my boss replied, "I got married at 19!" Ad then the Resident repeated, "So were you WILD?" She and I laughed for a solid 10 minutes about that one.
And then there are the small things that amuse us. Right now, we're scanning all of our old files onto our server. Since we've been in business for 18-some years, and manage nearly 344 apartments, that is A TON of files. Part of the job is taking all of the staples out so that the documents can be scanned. This is what I do with the staples when my brain hurts too much to go on for another second:
Do funny things like this happen at your work? I can't be the only one with crazy co-workers.
