remember yosemite sam? i think he was the only cartoon character that regularly cussed, though the writers disguised it w/ mumbling and growling etc. it always sounded like he was saying racka fracka to me.
anywhoo---i work in fucking podville. and they aren't even tall pods, they are half-wall pods. i am not tall so i can sort of hunker down a bit (yeah, great for my posture) and not actually eye-ball people all day. i've been in this particular heinous environment for about six months now and am slowly resigning myself to the fact that this is just how it is.
most of the time i can tune my co-workers out. lots of times i'm jamming to pandora, softly, and it distracts me from their stupid voices. however, today, their voices are getting on my last fucking nerve.
first, dude that sits kitty corner to me has a loud voice anyway. other co-workers call him slingblade, cos yes, his voice sounds exactly like that. fuck knows i am not one to be opposed to the cursing, but believe it or not as a general rule i don't curse at will at work. well, i don't curse at will much at home either because i like to pretend i'm trying to instill good habits in my kids. i say this only because i do use many "bad" words here, cos that's how my brain works. i'm not a prude obviously. but, in the work place i don't expect to hear shit, god damn nor fuck.
slingblade says these from time to time. sometimes i giggle to myself. today? yeah, i don't know who the fuck he was talking to but dude said his credit score is 820. out loud and shit. really? i might have to check into some identity theft. kidding.
then, across the office i hear another guy. this guy...he's just weird. i don't deal w/ him on any kind of regular basis, but when we have all office mtgs etc. i have seen him scratch. his head. a lot. like dude, do you have fucking lice or what? he messes with his scalp too much for me. anyway, i don't usually HEAR him. but today? he was saying shit this and shit that and goddammit and finally fuck them and the dude in front of me chuckled and i'm just like, really?
this probably sounds so holier than though, because seriously i'm not professional by any means, but when i'm on personal calls i speak soft and low; when i say fuck i make sure it's not like out in the general population etc.
then of course i can always hear this total ass wipe off to the side who should be like captain schmooze of the s.s. fucking schmooze douchecanoe because i really just want to rip out his voicebox. he thinks he is soooo imfuckingportant and spouts off his views on everything and if i have to hear him call someone friend (yes, he says, well my friend) one more time i'm going to bash his beady little head in. fucker.
whew--sorry. i really am in a good mood today it's just all of these voices are driving me batshit.
