News flash! This morning, a suspect package was discovered outside the office. The office manager asked all people sitting by the window, to move away from the window immediately!
I sit by the window, but for some unknown reason this message did not reach me, so I carried on regardless until I noticed people in the office staring at me. Have I got something hanging off the end of my nose? I thought to myself. Do I have a piece of toilet paper stuck to my head? Not being able to stand the paranoia any longer, I asked my colleagues what was wrong. It then became clear that the suspect package/move away from the window message had skipped me.
“Maybe you’re 100 per cent bomb proof?” Someone in the office said.
“Or maybe they think you are easily replaced?” Someone else in the office said.
Thanks for the last comment. I feel utterly appreciated and valued now.
Paranoia, and sarcastic comments pushed aside, the suspect package was a false alarm. Which was just as well really.
I hope you all had entertaining weekends, without any security alerts, or demeaning comments.
You can breathe a sigh of relief, as our boiler has been fixed, so this weekend, warmth and hot water has been restored to my home. Although my mother waited in a whole day for the plumber to arrive. He didn’t arrive so she called him the next day to ask when he would arrive. Apparently he forgot about us. Not a very good advertisement for your company Mr Plumber! Imagine if I had forgotten to come into work today. Mind you, as it has been pointed out, I could be easily replaced, so it’s probably a good job I did remember to come in.
Picture of the day:
Did you want something?
