Random reason why I will miss the office

Today I watched (maybe for the last time) one of the weird things that have become normal to me while working here.

As I head down the corridor to the bathroom, there is a big window that overlooks a motor-court that wraps around a grassy knoll. There is a man that either lives at (or has been rumored to OWN) Hotel SeaGate (which is the most disgusting hotel in all of Toledo) that brings his teeny-weenie dog out for a walk. Now, this man is not small. Ok, I'll just say it...he is a big man with a big belly, always donning some sort of creepy trench coat and smoking a Misty 120. His dog is a Yorkie or Shitzu or something COMPLETELY opposite of what you would expect from this guy (let's call him Herb and the dog, Princess).

So, as I trek down the hall, I watch Herb fire up an absurdly long, feminine cig and puff away as his toy dog takes a dump on our grassy knoll. With no plastic bag to mention, Herb just lets Princess crap away on our lawn. Just an average day...

I don't feel as if you could have chosen to more perfect names than Herb and Princess.

I appreciate your reference to a "grassy knoll." I don't know why, I just do.

I think if the thing that you are going to miss about your office is a small dog taking a large dump in the grass, then, maybe you didn't leave early enough. Also, from the title of your text, I almost had a heart attack because I thought the Office was being cancelled!

Ditto what hurley said. This is a reason you will miss working there? This is one of the positives there?!? Watching the fat man's dog poop is the silver lining in your job? Get out!
