How to make friends when you're the new girl

Lisa. New secretary at work (not mine—I'm not that important). Straight out of college. Attacked the file cabinets with a vengeance. Labeled a drawer this:



Marlene. Her boss. All day: "Lisa, can you do me a favor and get me a file?"

Giggles. Guffaws.

The speed oglers ain't got shit on this file cabinet.

Hahaha!! Very funny!

That is hysterical!

Hiring people right out of college is always super funny. They love using all the words they learned in school and think are cool like 'synergy'. They're so cute before they get all twisted and bitter like the rest of us.

Mulletville! I totally love it. I would have loved it even more when I was 17...

I bet she's popular.

Mary Anna said...

She and those files are symbiotic ... like the chicken and the egg. (If you get that reference, I'm leaving Paul for you tomorrow.)

Thanks for the post, and for the link to speed oglers -- both gave me great visuals!

And I thought our file cabinet labeled A-JEW was funny.

The Kind Of Post — except the part where I don't "kind of" have 3 kids

I've been thinking about going back to work full-time instead of cobbling together my income with 7+ freelance jobs, part-time work...
