three for one special

hello cyberspace...

sorry i haven't blogged lately...life for me has been quite hectic at work, and once i get home, i sort of lay off the internet because i stare at computers all day long. the latest news...

the echo secretary and the normal secretary to my department (whom or who i help out a lot) are both OUT of commission due to various things for at least the next few months. what does that mean for me? ah, yes, that means that little frylime has to do 3 jobs at a time, and it's a little hectic/stressful. it's definitely not hard work, but it's so much and so mindless sometimes that it can get borderline overwhelming. so i guess i'm officially a paper-pusher at work, and a cute one at that (stories to follow this paragraph), and i've found it hard to make sure that my official duties (inventory, scheduling) are done to the level of greatness that i try to do them in. luckily, the big boss is going to hire a temp worker soon, so that will be good, but who is going to train that worker? oh yeah, that would be me. so i've decided that after 1 more week or so of pulling triple duty, i may ask for a raise, because seriously, my workload has increased tremendously without warning and i'm the only one at work who can do it all. at this point, if something were to happen to me, they would be kinda screwed.

so enough of stressful stories...i don't mind being stressed at work as long as certain people don't bother me, and i get my lunch break. this girl has GOT to eat, so if i don't get my 30 minute lunch break i do get moody. but on to something funny...

an elderly man and his wife were waiting for the doctor to come talk to them about something, and the guy asks me "what's your ethnicity?" and i told him of course (i am not offended by any means when people ask me that). and then he replies "well, you are a mighty pretty young lady!", and then his wife shot him this look that was SO priceless, i wish i had a camera! they were this cute little old couple, and i ended up staying after my shift had officially ended for a while to chat with them because it seemed like they were about to hear some bad news, and both of them kept wishing me luck towards med school and life, etc. they were just cute as a button! or a bunch of buttons!

another story...i was walking by to get some faxes, and this man, early 50's i'd say, says, "can i see your hand?" it's so early in the morning so i just handed it to him and i was also quite confused, and the guy goes "how old are you" and i answered, and then "well, i don't see any rings...do you want to date my son? he's 29 and works in agriculture!" and i'm quite stunned, and stammered that i already had a boyfriend thank you very much who is quite proficient in computer programming. aaaaah! then he has the nerve to ask me if i had any friends who "might" be interested, and i said no...then the dude said that his son would be quite embarassed if he knew what he was doing...i agree.

so the moral of this post is that:

1. i am pulling double and triple duty at work.

2. old men find me really cute and want to set me up with their sons...i don't know about you, but trying to find someone to date your son in a HOSPITAL at 8:15 in the morning is just CREEPY.
