Friends and Kitties!
As you know, I'm a lucky soul who enjoys my job...and here's a small example of why that is:
Which is rich soil for sowing silliness, something you get a lot of when there's a bunch of
insane intelligent people minding the store like my co-workers.
Please embiggen for better reading--and check out my two posts midway...and the responses I got from the operator on the next shift!
The "Number Nine" post...long story. Do any of you remember "Revolution No. 9" by The Beatles? Well, any time somebody backwashes filter number nine it's traditional to drone "number nine...number nine...number nine..." in imitation of that track. Then, a few weeks ago one of the operators (Thomas) started quietly having fun in the log, recording filter backwash numbers in Spanish, Roman Numerals, etc. We've been going back and forth with this and never saying a word, so I've been WAITING to have filter #9 pop up on my shift *just* so I could make this log entry--combining the best of two inside jokes! Thomas couldn't restrain himself the next day and broke our omerta to say he had mightily enjoyed my entry. And that another operator (Mike) had commented--icing on the cake.
The entry below that one refers to this:
Bruce appeared on one of our graphics last Thursday and I DIED laughing as soon as I saw him...we had a shark in the wet well graphic on the old computer system and I guess some things never change--we're kind of anal like that here--somebody must have been feeling lonely and requested another shark.
Apparently Mike was on a roll
bored stiff that night because he commented not once but twice on that entry!
It's good to have fun at work.
