At work today, I finished a trucking route from Maine to LA. I know. I celebrated the occasion by having a big meal. At which point the waitress told me I was "eating lazy." Sweetie, you drive like I drive. Then you can call me lazy. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I got called out by a client in a rural area. He was mad that I'd never even worked on a farm. I didn't know what to tell him, except that I didn't think it affected my ability to install his DirecTV. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had a customer ask me where the new Dan Brown book was. I showed it to him and he flipped through the pages. "Is there an abridged version?" he asked and frowned. "Or one with pictures?" I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my preceptor started talking to me and my date at a coffee shop. I'm a neuroscientist, and he talked about technical stuff. We talked for about 40 minutes. It was a date. But after that lecture, my date dumped me immediately. Thanks, teach. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had a jazz flyer on my desk. My boss walked by and looked horrified. "What is that?" she shouted. "It's a jazz flyer," I whispered. "Oh," she said. "I thought that 'A' was an 'I'." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, three people took cigarette breaks at the same time. I watched them from the window. They were playing Uno. I would have been mad- but I was mostly sad I wasn't invited. I even smoke, too. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my aunt came into my workplace. I love her, but only because it's an obligation. "This is a nice office," she said drily. "Which corner is yours?" Then I showed her to my cubicle. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my cash register kept jamming. So I had to swing my hip into it to get it shut. Bam! It was satisfying the first time. 98 transactions later, it wasn't so fun. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had the fun honor of being in the company dunk tank. I work with a whole mess of accountants. That means that I was sitting dry for almost the entire day. I've never been sadder than sitting up there waiting. Dorks. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I spoke with our HR guy about my 401k. He said that the crash has still depleted almost everything. "The good news," he said, "is that less money is easier to manage." Thanks, Joe. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I scrubbed down the counters. I admit, I kind of enjoy tedious work like that. But this time, I zoned out so much I didn't realize that three people were standing behind me, watching me do it. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I realized my hot/cold spells, of which my male coworkers complain when I adjust the thermostat, may not be due to hot flashes. I discovered a 2 inch open gap at the window top. We've been in the building 14 months and thought it was painted shut. I'm dumbemployed.
