Now I Know Why So Many People Take This Week Off of Work 

A group of carolers is going around the floor with a recorder (you know... one of those instruments that you used to play in grade school) and singing Christmas carols off tune... yet very enthusiasticly. Am I a Scrooge because I put my headphones on and cranked up my MP3 player?


Crank away...(though be careful of those ears). They ordered all this heavy, oily, tomato-ey food for my dept's ex-mass party and I'm getting over a stomach bug, so decided to opt out. Not only did that label me a scrooge for some reason, but my request that they not ass crank fricking carols off the radio from two rooms over got me labelled either PC or sale juive. T minus nine days and counting until the end of this madness.

WTF? Do you work at Initech?

I've NEVER heard of people going around singing carols in an office. Thank God I work for a small office.

I was told that I could listen to the radio at a reasonable volume from nine to eleven, I told Bill that if Sandra is going to listen to her headphones while she's filing then I should be able to listen to the radio while I'm collating so I don't see why I should have to turn down the radio because I enjoy listening at a reasonable volume from nine to eleven.

Beautiful!!! I walked right into that one...

I was using my normal voice for your comment until i got to the "reasonable volume".... then it was all Milton from there.

Well done sir.
