Stress Mess

I’m waiting for day two of a two day stress management course (sponsored by the company, for the company) to begin. It starts at 08h30, and it’s now 06h27. I’m sitting at a desk at work, waiting for time to pass.

You might be wondering why I’m sitting at work at 06h30. It’s because I’m a creature of habit. I’m at work every day (except for the weekends of course) between 06h00 and 06h30. And now you might be wondering why I habitually get to work at this god forsaken time.
One word — Traffic.

To be honest, that’s why I started coming in this early, but I’ve been doing it for so many years now, that my reasons have subtly changed. Now it’s mainly habit. I also like being here alone in the quiet. Well, it’s quiet unless someone has left a freakin’ radio switched on.

Gah, nothing irritates me more than walking into an empty office to hear a radio muttering to itself. My irritation rises somewhat more when it’s a Monday morning (Hey, I get irritated easily, so sue me).

I’ve really gone off at a tangent this morning. Sorry, but I don’t really have much else to do right now.
I said earlier that I was sitting at a desk, not my desk. Why?

It’s because I can’t get to my desk. The motherfuckers in my office packed about 30 HP computer boxes in and around my desk, and I couldn’t be arsed with trying to move them all out. They’re gonna have to do it later anyway when they deliver the PC’s contained within, so why should I worry?
Heh, they even had the cheek to take a pic of my boss, no less, putting a box on the pile.

My problem at the moment is that I don’t know who the exact perpetrators are. But no worries. They will pay.

I think a day or so without internet access will kind of flummox them in the interim.
