The all-seeing, all-knowing Nutjob

It's very quiet here, being a day before the day before a holiday weekend and all, so there are less people to pay attention to Nutjob. (Didn't you know that's why we're all here?) She must be feeling her oats, because she's been butting into conversations all morning. (Background info: "Shell Bay" is the fictitious name of a property on the Gulf that the Musketeers were trying to sell. Operative word being "were").

Musketeer #3: Hey PartnerInCrime, I don't think you're going to get any money out of Shell Bay.

PartnerInCrime: Oh yeah? How-

Nutjob: Hey PartnerInCrime did you get my email?!?

[silence]

PIC: Uh, no I haven't looked yet.

Musketeer #3: You know, Nutjob, we were in the middle of a conversation.

Nutjob (in her cute little girl voice): Oh. Well..... you were in that room!

[more silence]

PIC: Nutjob what the hell does that mean?!

Musketeer #3: So anyway, Shell Bay is destroyed.

PIC: Aw, really?

Nutjob: *I* don't think so.

Musketeer #3: You don't think so, huh?

Nutjob: Nope!

Musketeer #3 finally figured out to start ignoring her, and continued his conversation with PIC. I see why she does it- it works. For some reason, people don't ignore her when she does it, they respond to her, which of course is what she wants. Just once, I'd love to see someone completely ignore her when she interrupts like that. It might be worth it to see what she'd resort to in order to get some attention.

I'd be afraid of what she'd do for attention.

Most likely she would then say how the person was rude for not responding to her. When the person would call HER on being rude, she would turn it around and say something akin to "I don't know" or "I just wanted to say" or "I didn't think it was that serious" or "I'm too stupid to live" ... y'know.. one of those.

Here's what she'd do. She'd go quietly back to her desk, and suddenly scream in pain and say she got a paper cut. This happens once every few months. She literally yells AAAAAHHH!!!!! For a papercut.
