Larry’s Manifesto

June 15, 2007 at 7:16 am 4 comments

Think you dislike your job? Not as much as my former co-worker Larry. Everyone has moments of frustration at work, but not just anybody could pen the following email, especially to someone he’d never spoken to before. I believe this speaks for itself and to not lessen its impact I will let it do just that. Just beware that any correspondence you ever send me goes into the official archives.

Testing to see if you are the JL that is my next door neighbor.

Officially verified that testing is correct.

Ha! I had to test before saying this – I don’t like being a non-social person in the office- it kills me! In the last job I was in before temping, I knew everyone in the office, and that’s probably part of the reason I don’t work there anymore, besides the fact that I hated the work.

Anyway, I’ve already had two ‘talking to’s’ with kelly, and she ‘understands’ that I am a social person, but so far she has called me in her office twice to tell me to ‘focus.’ She heard me on the phone twice today and told me that she ‘couldn’t take it anymore.’ I guess I’m really a crazy, insane office worker. What a rebel! How dare I ‘talk’ to my officemate, to make the day go by. I guess I come from some koo koo Krazy planet where people actually have fun while they are in the office. I’ve found that this office is incredibly dry, and people seem like they’ve had the life beaten out of them.

Anyway, the point is, I didn’t want you to think that it is a personal reflection, I just have the dragon lady breathing down my neck, and the fact is that we are way ahead of schedule, so she needn’t worry so much.

Ok, thanks! Also, my left ankle clicks all the time when I walk, so it’s like step click step click step click, if it wasn’t bothering you before, it probably will now!! Ha!

    step click step click step click… WHAT ON EARTH? Did you notice the left ankle after the manifesto?

    The ankle click went undetected. It didn’t help that he’d shout-speak on his cellphone whenever he’d walk by my cubicle the half dozen times a day he’d take calls from his roommate.

    You ought to tell him that there is a paper company branch in Scranton with a manager he would likely get along very well with.
