Most Excellent Conversation

Time: 11:45 AM
Place: Work

Nosy Coworker: Where are you going?
Me: Home.
NC: Do you mean to lunch?
Me: Nope. I'm going home.
NC: It's only 11:45. Did you take half a vacation day?
Me: Nope.
NC (irritated): How can you do this?
Me: Easily. I get in the car and drive home. It's OK, I told the engineering secretary.
NC: I thought you were real busy.
Me: I am. Insanely so, but I hit 40 hours yesterday and I'm working Saturday, again. Something's got to give, so I'm out of here. See you Monday.
NC: Is your cell phone number on the list?
Me: (walking away): Nope.

Good for you. I would have flipped off the nosy coworker though. Just to be on the safe side.

HAHAHA. Excellent. A pox upon every office's Nosy Coworker.

That's why the phrase "mind your business" evolved. :)

I bet you are looking forward to a vacation.

You are working like 52 hours. Thats like woah. The most I ever worked was 43. I'm not going any further than that.

I admire your restraint. After 52 hours on the job, my conversation would've been more like this:

Nosy Coworker: Where are you going?
Me: Where you aren't, you nosey fuckstick.

"Attention, class? I want everyone to use "fuckstick" in a sentance at least once this week!"

Damn, that's busy when you don't have time to read your own blog.

ACW-Where is your blog?

idle-I have many nosy coworkers, so I need the pox in bulk.

diamon-It also might be how the electric cattle prod was invented.

charles-It's a little more than 52, but I am looking forward to a vacation, indeed.

hinky-fuckstick?? That's my new word for the week.
