Right! As you all know, I just started working recently and I figured I’d give you guys a little taster of some of the more 'interesting' people I work with. Without further ado – meet the colleagues:-
Tee (not her real name of course): Fantastic lady! The best of the bunch! Nice, vivacious and very hard working. She’s shaved off her eyebrows and painted them back on almost about an inch too high so she constantly has a surprised look on her face. Down to earth and most likely to cover up for you if you off “sick” (i.e. can’t come in due to massive hangover… not that I’d ever do that…again - Disclaimer: I've never done that in this new job!)
Eff (also not her real name, okay, by this point, I’m sure you’ll have figured out that I’m not gonna use people’s real names): Irritating, pretentious with rare moments of brilliance. The kind of person who has an inane ability to say the most stupid things all the time and yet every so often comes up with fantastic joke/comment that draws you back in. At least with her you’ll never be ambivalent.
Pee1: Crazy crazy crazy crazy (did I mention crazy) Irish guy! The things he comes up with are insane. Most likely to get you in trouble (unintentionally might I add!). Still it’s always a welcome type of trouble! Needs to figure out what’s appropriate to wear to the office though (white blazer, bright green shirt and shiny silver trousers are NOT appropriate office wear!). Saying that, I always look forward to seeing what he wears to the office. Makes a refreshing change in the sea of Black and Grey suits.
Pee2: Quiet office mouse… that is till you get a drink or two down her and suddenly, she has a potty mouth that would make even the maddest sailor blush. Why is it the quiet ones that are always full of surprises? And after her fifth drink, she’ll tell you things about sex you never knew existed or were even possible! In between sporadic fits of laughter, I have make occasional trips to the bathroom to write some of it down. It’s like sexual comedy gold. (Bet she thinks I have a weak bladder with the amount of times I have run off to the bathroom laughing…) She’s smaller than Kylie Minogue so takes very little for her to get drunk… (Lucky cow!)
Bee: Office bore. Tells the most awful, sleep-inducing stories ever! I have actually nodded off while he was talking to me once. Thankfully, I don’t think he noticed… now that I think of it, I kinda wish he did. At least maybe he’d get the message and stop coming over to tell me tales of his great ‘pumpkin weekend’. On the plus side, he’s a genuinely nice guy so as long as he doesn’t insist on recounting old tales, generally nice to be around.
Aay: Moaner… You could almost see a dark cloud hanging around his head every day! I find this tedious and avoid at all costs.
Boss Lady: Hardly ever in the office so hard to tell what she’s like. All I know is she has a crazy hyena laugh which you can head across the entire office but generally seems like a nice lady. I hear she’s the office gossip queen which makes sense as the first thing she ever said to me was how some intern from the years ago slept with her old manager at the office Christmas party and the intern is now back here full time. (I fully intend on finding out who said intern is!!! I’ve already figured out who her old manager is… And as I said before, I’ll never actively spread office gossip but I’ll be damned if I’m gonna miss hearing about it!!!)
That’s it so far. Still new so still finding my way around and getting to know more people. Needless to say, I’ll keep you all posted!!! Till next time…
