Who Needs Enemies When You Have Co-workers?????

I got into work a little after six this morning. That early, all is pretty quiet in our office. We do not have individual offices, but "cubes". Carpeted partitions that separate our desks from our co-workers, but unfortunately do nothing to muffle the sounds coming from said co-workers.
I was pondering the things that go on in our office on a day to day basis. We all have good days and bad days, but this week seems to be a bad week all around.
Our MRO buyer is on vacation this week. When this happens her supervisor and another dept. mate have to take on her duties. Yesterday there were several emergency orders from the engineering department that were all messed up; the senior buyer came over to my section of the office, unwrapping a piece of caramel candy as he came. Once he arrived at the cube next to mine, he started discussing his problem with our import/export coordinator. I got up to join in the conversation, and just as I stepped into the cube, the senior buyer dropped that piece of candy onto the floor. God how I wish I'd had a camera to take a pic of his face as that candy hit the floor! Priceless!
Then our senior planning gal was having all kinds of shipment troubles. During all this her cell phone died. She had to crawl under her desk to unplug something so she could plug in her cell. First she unplugged her computer. Oops! Then she unplugged her automatic stapler. Ooops again. Finally she found a plug she didn't need and pulled it. When she finally got around to plugging her cell charger into the power strip, someone on the other side of the office started asking her if he should get a crane to help her up from the floor.
I had been at my desk about 30 minutes when a good friend of mine came in. She started sending emails and asked me, "Amy, how do you spell nausea?" She had written it down but it didn't look right. Right after she asked me that question, I started having all kinds of problems! The line calls me up to say they are out of this part. Another associate says we are out of finished good pass thrus and will miss shipment to the customer. On and on.
After everything settled down, I started laughing to myself (yes, I know. A sure sign you're losing it!) and thinking, "Who needs enemies when you have co-workers?????"

"Amy, how do you spell nausea?"

Spell check is neat thing, suggest the use it. As for a definition of nausea, look around your office.

Well....sounds like a "fun" day at the office.

Seems like one thing goes wrong..and that sets the tone for the rest of the day.

But those crazy co-workers sure help pass the workday sometimes.

I hope you have a better workday tomorrow.
