First day in my new job.
When I arrive in the office the Head of the Research Group is a bit flustered. "There has been a delivery for you. Flowers. I don't think we have ever had flowers in this office before. Who sent them? We didn't. Should we have done? Not that I don't like flowers. I often wish someone would send some to me." I'm listening but there is a photo of him on the wall behind his head. He is standing in a motorised canoe on the estuary of the Tutuling River in Indonesia. It's very distracting.
Next step is to clear my desk of rock samples.
I remember getting flowers at work, it made some of the others turn several shades of green!ReplyDelete
Wishing you all the best in your new job.
Thank you! I am hoping to earn enough to pay for all the fun things I want to do without spending so much time at work that I haven't got time for fun.Delete
presumably he was just Tutuling along mind his own business...ReplyDelete
It's always good to cause a bit of a stir when you're new. (Brilliant, Mr M.)ReplyDelete
Do not encourage him.Delete
I believe you should encourage him, he is rather amusing.Delete
I hope you enjoy your new job Alice and that it has not to many pressures on you.
I love this!ReplyDelete
I find your rock sample distracting. I could give it a good home.ReplyDelete
There are many, many more where that one came from. I plan a 'rock sample of the week' feature.Delete
