At work today, I showed my boss a new draft of some stories that I've been working on for our company newsletter. He stared at it for a while and grimaced. "Once the newsletter gets popular," he said, "maybe we'll actually get some good stories." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I started tracking how many times the door opened and shut. I marked it on a tally sheet in front of me and made sure to get a big piece of paper. Unfortunately, business isn't so good right now. At the end of the day, I had four marks. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today,  I cleaned some of the sample tables at our furniture store. Glass tables. Naturally, a little five year old comes in with his terrible mom. He was just tall enough to smear his grubby little fingers on all of my clean tables. I got out the Windex again. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I mowed my neighbor's long for the princely rate of five dollars per yard (front and back). I finished after three hours and went to get my money. He had a big smile on his face. He said he had a tip for me too. I was happy. Then he handed me a Sacajawea dollar. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we started scanning IDs instead of using our punchcards to punch in. Our boss stood next to the scanner the entire time. He said he didn't trust it. It's a scanner. If he wanted to catch people being bad, he should have checked out the break room. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had two college aged kids claim to have AAA memberships and, therefore, a discount. I asked for their membership numbers or their cards. They looked at each other and ran into the woods. Then they came back because I hadn't opened their car yet. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I started my shift thinking I would get to leave early. Then we had about ten orders come in for pizzas with everything on them. That's unusual for us. Then it happened again. I smell like anchovies now and it won't wash out. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we had an all you can eat pasta special. I've found there's always one fat guy who gets the most out of it at any all you can eat place. Well, we have ours. Turns out he's extra special. He complained when we closed at 11PM. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, this middle aged lady came into our record store. She wandered aimlessly for a while and  then walked up to me. "Do you have Adam Lambert?" she asked. I don't know which is worse. That she wanted Adam Lambert at an indie store, or that I know who he is. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss continued listening to "Pokerface" non stop. Except now he dances inside his office. The problem is that he doesn't realize his blinds are open. The good part? He's a surprisingly agile dancer. I watch. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I spent my entire shift switching the light switch on and off. Productive? Not so much. But halfway through, I did get to leave my desk to replace the light bulb I'm broken. It should be obvious by now. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was showing a house to a very young couple. I thought it might be out of their price range, but these days you never know how much kids make. They asked a few good questions and I answered. Then they asked me if they could rent instead of buy. I'm dumbemployed.
