These are just a few highlights that I will NOT miss from my current job:
Crazy Lady excerpts that were said to me or my other co-worker:
Hey Lovebug or Love or Doll (pronounced do-ahl), or Cupcake, will you make a copy of this please.
[Conversation between co-worker and I over an email] Co-worker: That's a big baby. My baby was only 5lbs. Me: [opening mouth and crazy lady butts in before I could say a word!]Your baby was small because you're a smoker. Co-worker says: No, I quit smoking when I found out I was pregnant. Well, you're still a smoker so that's why you had a small baby.
This is the last pack of paper. Me: Uh, okay. It says on here "last pack of paper. please refill". Me: normally, when someone gets the last pack of paper and it says that, they go get more paper. [cuckoo bird takes paper out of pack, leaves packing on counter, puts paper in printer, returns to office]
I left you a message because I wanted to know if you could go into my office and see if my glasses were in there.
Me: Since I was out on Friday, did X have their courier bring back the papers? No, no, I don't have them. [asked about papers for almost 5 days. co-worker overhears and informed me she put papers on crazy lady's desk on friday and she was in there.][Crazy lady comes over holding log]....it says here they were dropped off on Friday. Me: Uh, remember I wasn't here on Friday. I don't have them. Co-worker: Remember I put them on your desk in your office on Friday. Maybe, they are in the stacks of papers. Here lovebug, here they are. Me: [insert sweet, sarcastic voice here] where were they??
I seriously could go on and on if you'd let me. However, I am going to spare you. I mean seriously. This is just from the past four days. And on top of that, not only is Crazy Lady well, uh, crazy, she's also mean. She is old, and she talks down to us. I know the position I'm leaving is a clerical one since I am an assistant after all, but I know that my job entails making copies and processing documents and what not. But lady, I'm a human being. So, Crazy Lady aka Cuckoo Bird, Au Revoir and have fun making your own copies:)
