At work today, I was stuck working with Vincenzo, who is from Massapequa, Long Island but pretends he's from Italy. I asked him who his favorite musician was. "Blink 182" he said, in an Italian accent. Does he know they aren't from Milan? I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had to do inventory on these really really tiny ball bearings. Of course a normal hardware store would have them in packs. We, however, are meticulous about our inventory. So I've been doing a lot of counting. And I've lost a lot of ball bearings. Be careful. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had to visit a client at his home. When I arrived, he told me not to breathe deeply outside because his neighbor has Hepatitis C. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my coworkers were all talking (loudly) about Sex and the City. Inevitably, they  started comparing themselves to the characters. Unfortunately, they couldn't agree on their choices because all of them wanted to be Samantha. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was advising a young woman on the type of bed she'd want to by. She insisted on a twin bed, even though I told her a Queen might be more comfortable, especially for two. "Don't try to make me go to hell!" she shouted at me. "Or raise my prices." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, our boss Robert came back from a long hiatus wearing suspenders. Somebody finally asked him about it, and he said it was "a Larry King thing" he was trying out. It didn't work. The entire day, I got to watch Robert hitch up his pants. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, the oddest smell was coming from the cubicle next to me. The person working there had left for the day, so I tip toed over and investigated. Finally, I opened one of his desk drawers. A full bag of popcorn was inside, unopened. I left it there. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I caught the receptionist at front reading gossip columns for half the day. That would be fine, except for the fact that she was supposed to email me a contact list at 3 sharp. She was delayed until 4 because of the supposed difficulty of the work. Thanks, Speidi. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I got a call from the hospital saying that one of the prescriptions I'd filled had been incorrect. I checked my records for everything and couldn't find a mistake. It turned out the doctor had been the one who'd screwed up. But I got in trouble. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, our data center received three angry calls from customers complaining about telemarketing. Two of them weren't even on any of our lists. They still managed to sound pretty upset. I got yelled at for an hour. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I found out that a real jerk is getting a promotion and will become my boss. I was nervous, but I asked one of our VPs why it had happened. "He just has a mature approach," he said. The jerk is younger than I am. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I made a no shirt no shoes no service sign as a kind of joke. Well, turns out it wasn't so funny. I encountered more one person knocking on the window claiming that we'd turned them away. It's not like we're near a beach. We're just hicks. I'm dumbemployed.
