For most of today, everyone who came past my desk had to tell me just how hot it was in the back corner of the office. Now the air conditioning is working again, so I guess it's a good thing that the Michael Jackson verdict is coming up, so that everyone who passes my desk is still able to tell me the same thing I have already heard.
I don't know if people think that I need informing, or if it's just that they hate to pass through the lobby without acknowledging me in some way, and "hello" just seems too pedestrian. But I do get a lot of repeated information. And then something important happens and it actually affects the company, and I don't hear about it until a week later. Office communication. It's odd.
In my data entry this afternoon, I came across someone with the last name "Belcher". I'd have thought this to be unfortunate, if not for the fact that earlier in the day I found someone with the first name "Belcher".
I've been really thirsty this afternoon. Also, I am feeling a caffeine need. Perhaps, just perhaps, I can find a single solution for these two issues. Or am I being too ambitious here?
