Ah, the Office

Being back in an office environment has made me realize how much I miss the antics of the daily grind. I now work in a small creative office and our receptionist is the nicest, cutest lady. What makes her a great character is the stuff that comes out of her mouth. She looks like your grandmother, very cute and little, so nice and polite, but she says stuff that make me close one eye and and cringe a little. Here are some recent examples:

My key doesn't work. Her response, "Well, it must have some hickeys on it!" Hickeys?

Me: "Hi, would you mail these out for me?" Her: "SQUIRTANLY!" Squirting....

Other sales rep: "What time is Mr. So and So coming in today?" Her: "Two O'cock!" Cock-a-doodle do.

hahaha! Squirtanly?!?! That is awesome!

I work in a smaller work office and I love it. The Office really isn't too far off from reality at times!

Wow! I think I'd like her ... most of the time.
