Leveling the playing field


I arrived for work at the library and, as I usually do, I made my rounds to acclimate. Out at the front desk one of my co-workers was idly shopping for clothes.

"It has been requested" I said portentously, "That we only use these computers to watch soccer matches."

"I'll keep that in mind." My colleague said drily.

"Although between you and me," I added in a confidential undertone "I think it would be okay to shop for soccer related apparel and to read soccer news."

Then I headed off to the back room to write an "All Staff" email about calendar ordering that was 12 times longer than it needed to be.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
