The office cop

Yesterday was quite the stressful day. The Three Musketeers didn't help, with their needling until I snapped at them. Which I never do. I lost my cool and put them in their place and I have to say it felt good. It was interesting to see their reactions to my display of my true feelings. Musketeer #2, who was primarily the person I was pissed at, put up his hands and started backpedalling all over the place. "Oh no, that's not what I meant, no no... I didn't mean..." I talked right over him. Musketeer #1 just sat there and laughed with that "you're cute when you're mad" amused look guys sometimes get, which just infuriates us women even more. Musketeer #3 tried to jump in the middle. I make it sound worse than it was. I wasn't yelling, I just wasn't the smiley agreeable person they have all become used to. (For those of you who know me offline... you can stop laughing now. Yes, at work I am primarily smiley and agreeable- it's easiest to just smile and nod and not rock the boat).

So, I was not in the most jovial of moods later on in the evening, at "closing time". Nutjob had gone into the ladies room to get changed into her workout clothes, and then came back into the office for some bizarre reason. Oh yeah, to get attention. I forgot. She was wearing a pair of sweatpants that said HAWAII (what else?) across the butt.

Musketeer #1: Hey great way to assure that everyone will look at your butt.

Nutjob (all fake-innocent): What????

Musketeer #1: I didn't know your butt had a name. Hawaii. (laughing) The twin peaks have a name! Hey Musketeer #3, look at that, the twin peaks-

Me: Hey now!

Musketeer #1 (smirking at me): What?

Me: Take it easy over there.

Musketeer #1: Oooooh, slapped down by SilentWitness!

I would have been pissed off at him for that comment if he hadn't changed the subject and mercifully talked about something else. How about that. Maybe he learned his lesson from the porn fiasco. (See December 2004).

I just read on the news that Hawaii is suing Nutjob for a sexual harrassment for having their name on her ass.

The horror. . . the horror. . .

The . . . Mr. Ring of Fire . . .
