Miss(ed) Manners

So my employers made their triumphant return to the office today after a summer spent enjoying the upstate beauties of the Berkshires. This is always an odd time of year for me. The slowness of the summer begets a certain lethargic state upon me, kind of like how if you stop eating your stomache shrinks. Well my stomache for work has shriveled up to the size of a pea.

Now that they’re here I’ve got to hop right back into busy, productive, responsible me. Not fun to say the least.

Well, one good thing is that we’ve moved into this new space which means I have my own private office. This of course has its positives and negatives. Pro: I like the thought that I could work in the nude. There’s something about planning a benefit luncheon while resting your balls on pleather that really speaks to me. Con: They could be naked too.

Anyway, far be it from me to begrudge working at a job that pays the bills and makes me very happy at the same time.


  1. Is this a different space than the one with the frigid AC? In a private office you should be able to control the climate to your liking, which is a definite benefit. A while back I worked for a company where everyone had private offices (back in the dark ages when some employers actually believed that people could be more productive if they had a quiet space of their own to work in — imagine that), and I always wondered what, exactly, was going on when people had their door closed and the blinds drawn on the window beside the door. Some of them were probably naked (and plenty of others probably wished they were).

  2. Yeah it’s the same place. But in these big corporate (but older) buildings you have communal air and heat with the rest of the floor.

    😦 Not cool.
