I got laid off two years ago and have been piecing together a work life, mostly working from home, ever since.
I haven't had a head cold in two years.
so your cat is currently your nemesis?
Yup, and I am a member of the 7% who have slept with their nemesis.
truly a win/win situation!
Time for a new Awl Office Seating Chart, don't you think?
i recently, two weeks ago to be exact, got my office nemesis fired. in this economy i don't know whether to be happy or feel like an asshole. also, what is the plural of nemesis, 'cause i've got a few more?
@iantenna That would be nemeses.
I can't think of a single nemesis in the office I'm in now, but I had a few in past offices. One, who was on the other side of a cubicle wall from me, blew her nose inessantly and used to say "okey-dokes" on the phone ad nauseum. Anotehr cleared her throat many times an hour. For these crimes, I would have killed thses women if I was sure I would've gotten away with it.
@Trilby I haz bad spelling! Srroy!
I'm part of the .5%. And it's ***only*** .5%?!?
Outwit Outplay Outlast
My nemesis always stops at the wrong cubicle and does a loop de loop on his way to bug me too!
They obviously did not include my answers for the poll in the first graph. At my previous job, my favorite nemesis-related activity was identifying which Simpsons or Office character my nemesis most resembled and emailing my coworkers the resultant photoshop mashup. For example my previous boss was a creepy combination of Montgomery Burns and Michael Scott, and another co-worker was a disgusting combination of Creed Bratton and Barney Gumble.
It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it's time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read more things about it!
I'm extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..
I love the super complimentary random spam this post attracted!
From now on, I'm blaming nearly everything on "bullshit caveman hormones."
