First Day Jitters

When I got to my new job today, my assistant was waiting for me.

"Here's your office," she said, pointing to a cube with my name on it.

"This is mine," she continued, pointing to an office door with her name on it.

"Okay," I said. "As long as I have enough floor space to spread out my files, I'll be fine."

"I'm just kidding," she said. "Your office is in here. I've set up your computer for you."

























We're going to get along just fine.

Does it have a working ribbon? You could volunteer to take notes during meetings.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Are you going to tell them about Half-Naked Thursdays? Or let it be a surprise?

How long did it take you to move all the brooms out?

Brando said...

Snag, you're just like Melanie Griffith!

Kathleen said...

is there a duvet cover to spread your files? or is that flies.

Jennifer said...

Brando- That's so funny. I kept picturing him showing up the first day with his lunch box, twinkie and milk money.

...and a note pinned to his shirt:

This is Snag. it is his first day. Please do not tease him.

Do not let him drink the bourbon until after lunch, he's got a tender tummy. He can tie his shoes, do not let him tell you he can't. He's got a spare set of underwear and socks in his briefcase.

signed, Mrs. Snag

Snag said...

I was a little scared when I first got here but the people were nice and there was only one bully who picked on me for wearing a tie but the other nice people made him stop.

Another Kiwi said...

Type anonymous threatening letters to him, Snag.

Snag said...

I prefer to use cut and paste for my threatening letters. Literally.

That doesn't look anything like a stapler.

This post, which I wish I had read when first posted, reveals the answer to this burning Chuckles question: why did the e-mail bounce when sent to Snag's only known address?

A question which shares many qualities with the Great Poultry Conundrum.
