Characters:  Receptionist



Secretary receives call from her big important boss to have a name added to security.  Said gentleman will be arriving at our office in approximately one hour to have secretary (me) receive and scan closing documents in a big important deal.  I post haste, email receptionist to relay message giving receptionist name of gentleman and time he is arriving, WHY he is arriving and please call me (secretary) when he arrives.

Because Secretary has history with Receptionist (e.g., ignoring emails, not ordering lunch, etc.) secretary makes sure she has a notification in her Outlook that will notify her that receptionist has actually opened and read secretary's email. 
Approximately 15 minutes later I receive this from receptionist …

All taken care.  It really helps speed these up if you put a date in your subject line. Thx.

Secretary ponders said message.  How to respond?  Should I respond?  Or should I ask her to refrain from smoking crack on the job?  I chose to ignore.

Footnote:  One would assume that when one says “gentleman arriving in an hour” … one would assume that means today.  Presently.  Not … “in an hour from now, yesterday a man will be arriving” or “in an hour from now, in two days a gentleman will be arriving” ….

Dig?  Or is it just me who gets this?



  1. receptionist is a dumbass and needs to be fired.

    1. RIGHT?!! I get this shit EVERY TIME I ASK HER TO DO SOMETHING. Unbelievable.

  2. Oh I would have responded .... with the back of my hand on the back of her head and asking, "Just how stupid are you?"

    And it would be a rhetorical question!

  3. Um, how dumb does someone have to be.....the date is already embedded!

SO, recently California passed a law wherein we now have to use our own bags every time we go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid, or wherever.  If you don't take your own bags you have to purchase one for 10 cents.  So if you buy a shitload of groceries, you're now going to have to pay an extra 40 or 50 or 60 cents on top of that .... to help the environment.  HOWEVER, here's the really smart part.  The bags they sell you are made of .... wait for it .... PLASTIC.  you know ... to help the environment.

If you're smart like I am, you've already purchased plenty of bags with handles made out of something (not plastic) but sturdy and reusable.  I have them in my car.  And every time I go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid I completely forget to take them into the store with me, ergo, I end up purchasing MORE PLASTIC BAGS.  California.  Why people want to come here I have no idea. 

RHOBH ....

Holy Moly Guacamole Batman what the hell happened on RHOBH last night?!  Erika (“Jayne”) Girardi lost her shit!  I mean, she actually SHED TEARS.  Now I gotta say that she is one of my favorite housewives.She’s a straight forward-no bull-shit kinda gal and I like that, but apparently the “panty-gate” situation bothered her much more than she originally let on.  

If you recall, a while back at a housewives get-together with the husbands, Erika showed up sans underwear.  As fate would have it, Dorit’s husband P.K. (what the hell kinda name is that?) was seated in direct view of said bare crotch and stared at it all night long (PERV).  If that were my husband his pee-pee would have been severed, filleted and roasting on the patio BBQ.  But I digress.  
So this became THEE topic of conversation ALL SEASON.  Well, in order to bring a peace offering of sorts and little levity to the situation, a few weeks later Dorit purchased a pair of sexy, lacy panties for Erika and told her t…
