Choose Your Own Adventure

You finish your breakfast cereal at work, and go to take your bowl to the kitchen.

However, as you walk down the hallway, you hear a lot of chatter and frivolity and can tell there are several other people in the kitchen. Do you,

a) Keep going, and chat to the other people like a normal person, while you wait your turn.

b) Return to your desk with your dirty bowl because you are not really a normal person, and don't want to talk to people.

c) Encounter this situation and deem it post-worthy, because this is how dull your life is.

b, closely followed by c.

I second your b. Especially first thing in the morning.

That plot line's not from the Lost Jewells of Nabooti!!!

Au contraire, it falls between chapters 7 and 8 in the directors' cut.

d) Secretly plan to murder them all with a tea spoon so that you can then eat your breakfast in peace.

A - but I eat before I get to work so it's not an issue.

I have a morning routine, when I arrive at work, about which I am quite particular - and I like to do in uninterrupted. We also have the designated office creep. He comes around to our kitchen, from the other side where they have their own kitchen, for the sole purpose of harassing people (read: women). If he is there I just back peddle and wait, or go and use his kitchen, because he takes so ridiculously long stalling in ours trying to engage people in conversation. You hit my sore spot with this post!

I feel your pain, Ali.
