Don't be afraid...

I like to think that I am a fairly normal person. I hold a professional job, I shower regularly, I can (usually) speak proper English, and no one has ever accused me of being strange.

But, there are days that I have to wonder if maybe I'm just a bit, well, off. Do you ever feel like your co-workers are scared of you? No you say? Interesting....

Perhaps the email I sent (while in a slight fit of rage) to the office staff a few weeks ago has something to do with it. You be the judge. The email I sent is paraphrased below...

Subject: A Few Reminders and Requests

Hi folks,

Both laptops are missing and neither of them have been checked out. Whoever has them, please let me know asap and also tell me when you might anticipate their return.

Just a reminder- I don’t have time to check for supplies every day. If you see that an item is getting low or take the last of it please tell me. Otherwise, it won't get ordered until I notice it, which could be weeks after it runs out.

Also, I would really appreciate help from everyone with things like emptying trash and keeping the kitchenette area clean. If no one else has done these by Friday I try to do them but I don't always have that kind of time. Plus, really anyone can do this stuff so you don't have to wait for me. If it looks like the trash is overflowing feel free to empty it before I do it on Friday.

Thanks everyone!

Maybe "odd" isn't the word I'm actually looking for here...


In my defense I brought bagels to work yesterday. That's almost like waving a white flag, right?
