Weirdo at Work!
I have some temporary work at the moment (nice to have some dosh to pay off that pesky speeding fine!), and so I have very little time to blog this week. I did want to mention a funny thing that happened at work, however, as I could hardly believe it!
I was sitting at my desk and in the background I could hear a sort of clicking sound. I tried to ignore it but it was persistent. What was it? I carried on working but it was still there. Suddenly, the woman sitting behind me leapt up off her seat, exclaiming loudly:
"I know what that noise is! Peter! Are you clipping your toenails?"
I was horrified. Surely not? But she was absolutely right. Peter, whoever the hell he was, had been sitting in his office, with his feet over the trash, busily hacking away at his toenails! He was not the slightest bit embarrassed at being caught, nor offered any explanation as to why he might be doing such a revolting thing at work. I have so much sympathy for the poor bloke who has to share the very small office with him. Yuck!
Does anyone you work with have similar disgusting habits that they really should not be indulging in at the office? What stories can you tell? Go on, you know you want to ... spill the beans ...
And now for something completely different:
I was listening to my local radio station's 'new release Thursday' last week. They played this song and I just loved it and couldn't get it out of my mind. The artist has a really weird name and I couldn't find him anywhere, until I stumbled across this blog called Bearly Rambling. Someone had had the exact same reaction as me and very kindly supplied not only the name of the artist, his correct spelling and pronounciation, but also a whole load of other tracks. And is a fellow Brit (why am I not surprised!). Gotye (pronounced 'gaultier' or go-tee-aay) is excellent, and the video is pretty cool too.
