Brain freeze

The work clowns made me spend my morning doing nothing. They'd only gone and overstaffed something like the zealots they are and there we all were lurching about like zombies with nothing to do.

The whole sodding morning sitting there with my jaw resting on my hand, staring passively like a cow at a stranger in a field.

This is not unusual, this me doing nothingness. I do it for long stretches every day. What I resent, however, is that I was not doing all this nothing on my own terms, and was in fact, obliged to idle at the bidding of somebody else. It's intolerable is that.

Anyway, I freed myself by dint of a cunning ploy.

C'mere, I says to the head honcho, am I actually needed here.

Eh no, she says.

Grand so, says I, and I fucked off for a coffee on my way back to the office.

My mental sharpness had been somewhat eroded however, and in O'Brien's, I got confuddled by their boast poster in the window about free range poultry, and so I managed to order a large range cappuchicken in a fit of tongue twist. Everyone laughed at me.

I should have stayed at home today, pretending to be snowed in.

18 moos and woofs:

Cappuchicken. first 'lol' (as they say) of the day.

Your on to something with the direct boss questioning though, my only fear is it could backfire badly and then the wild delegation and finger pointing would begin.

Baino said...

Brave move not to make yourself indespensable in these economic times. I spend a lot of time staring out of the window myself. Thank God I'm the only one who knows how to change the backup tapes.

Maxi Cane said...

I pretended to be snowed in, it was great.

Playstation day.

Susan said...

Cappuchicken HAH!! Well done you.

Oh before I forget, LONGLISTED BABYEEEEE, congratulations!!

hope said...

I could've pretended it was a snow day INSIDE my office today...the high and mighty in the ivory tower [known as the boss people] let us run out of fuel oil today, thus no heat. And yeah, it was cold for a change. :)

Glad you're very important. Tell your boss there are people WORLDWIDE who believe you are quite talented. Just your suggest work injury on Radge's site shows creativity. ;)

hope said...

Um..."suggested".

Fingers still thawing out.

Terence McDanger said...

Yes Baino, there's about two or three times a week when I come in useful. Ach not really, I do work a tad more than that actually but today was just a brain deadener altogether!

Are you a PS3 man Maxi? I've had to wean meself off Pro Evo and Metal Gear, was simply just wasting my entire life on the bloody thing.

Jasus Susan, I hadn't even checked the site to see for myself. I can't believe it. I'm very flattered and proud to have gotten this far.

Hope, you're right. Brand McDanger has gone global. I had a reader in India once you know.

~ae said...

Oh! Currently you have a devoted, though new, fan in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Can I cast a vote across this continent and the Atlantic?

Terence McDanger said...

Thanks ae, new faces, never mind devoted ones, are always most welcome! I don't know who can vote or when voting starts though, stay tuned!
