Finger Foods...

So... the $64,000 question... how IS that new job of mine going???

just Peachy Keen... as long as by "peachy" you mean stressy and by "keen" you mean ugh...

okay, so it's really not all that bad - the schedule is getting solidified - I have actually managed to work in a twice weekly lunch with my kindergarten girl... which is technically what I'm doing right now... except she REALLY just wanted to watch Wishbone... whatever.

I do work with some fun people... some of whom might actually drop by here so I can't compare anyone to characters from The Office... I don't even really HAVE to compare them myself since we can all take that facebook quiz... I'm pretty sure our office is fully of Ryans and Michaels... with a Pam or two... Oh - and definitely one poor Phyllis and Andy type...

great - now I'm going to get in trouble...

oh well, since I'm in trouble let me just tell you that last week I grabbed a Wendy's Salad and headed back to the office where I finally got to eat my lunch at 2:00... only the Fork part of my salad had not made it all the way to the office... being the resourceful person I am I made sure my hands were clean before declaring to everyone present (Phyliis and Andy included) that chicken strips, lettuce, and mandarin chicken slices are now finger food. I'm sure there were a few snickers amongst those in the office but can I mention how annoyed I was later when I was putting away stuff in closets (that I've never before opened) and found a bag FULL of forks... so I ask *phyllis* about them... and get this response:

"oh yeah - I wondered why you were eating with your fingers, but I didn't want to insult your intelligence..."

ugh...

oh well, now I know, and I can forget my fork about 144 times before I have to stress about it.

hahaha....aren't chicken strips, lettuce and mandarin oranges finger foods?
Wendy's usually leaves out my dressing for my salads, or my fries for my burger, or my spoon for my frosty! But, I keep going back....dang 99cent menu (couldn't find a "cent" sign...is there one? Never needed it before!)
Have a great day~

I love my Office. I also love Wendy's Taco Salad.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I love the oriental salad from Wendy's also, but I always talk myself out of it because it is not on the dollar menu.

Glad you are adjusting to your new job. Personally I think employment is over rated, but paying the bills is not. Kind of a cunundrum, if you will.

Have you discovered what you are supposed to learn from this trial/blessing? I only figure those things out after they are over.

I cannot believe she didn't tell you about the forks!! That is really kind of stinky, imo. I had soup from panera the other day at the studio, and they put in a fork for me. So there I was trying to eat my soup with a fork....

lori said...

lol, sounds a lot like something my brother would do to me, watch me eat my salad with my hands, then say "by the way"....

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Lol... I'm impressed u could eat salad with ur hands. Next time we eat lunch, which better be soon, I want proof!

Barbaloot said...

Well---at least she saved your intelligence? Next time just tell her you're more fond of eating salad with forks than you are of your intelligence:)

T said...

Yay - you guys make me smile :)

and Shelle - I've perfected the art of eating with my fingers... had to since I keep throwing my forks on the floors :) I'll show you anytime... well, at least MWF between the hours of 11:00 and noon...

That is so nice of her to let you keep eating with your hands! What a goober!

just the five of us said...

Hey at least your hands were clean, and you knew where they had been:)

Megz said...

So Phyllis thinks smart people eat salad with their fingers? Guess that's better than thinking you were an idiot for eating salad with your fingers...
Love that M preferred TV to bonding with you. True kid isn't she?

Sue Q said...

Try the taco salad next time. I love eating super hot chili with my fingers! It's so much more attractive when it drips down your blouse, too.

But apart from "The Office" wannabes and the late lunch hour, what else do you like about your job?

Z said...

"Stressy ugh..." just doesn't roll off the tongue the way "peachy keen" does...

JennyMac said...

just Peachy Keen... as long as by "peachy" you mean stressy and by "keen" you mean ugh...

this might be the funniest thing I have read all day.

April said...

HA! When I am asked how I am I answer peachy (in my most sarcastic voice of course).

I bet "Phyllis" knew you didn't need a fork because she was beside us in the booth when you were throwing your fork on the floor......so there! hahahaha!

And we MUST do lunch again!
