Fun at Work



Friends and Kitties!

Sheebie here.

As you know, I'm a lucky soul who enjoys my job...and here's a small example of why that is:

The LOG.

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!


::guffaw::


It's good to have fun at work.


Happy Sunday!

  1. Brilliant! Utterly brilliant. Well, that's what Äiti says and as you can imagine she would indulge in such pranks.
    Bruce looks like a friendly sort. Is there a little Nemo nearby ?

  16. Hilarious! What does WR stand for? Maybe work order?

    I wish we could have fun at work, but we've been told that "work is not supposed to be fun". Sigh...four years, six months, and 7 days.

  17. LOL! I love how nobody said anything until now. What fun. Levity makes a big difference in work.

  18. The night shift, we can imagine can get pretty boring, so suspect a little humor can make the time go by a little faster. We are, however, disappointed that your Mom wouldn't let any of you do a selfie today. We guess she could have submitted Bruce. MOL!

  23. That's the only way to survive work--to have some fun with co-workers. I send emails to my buddy in the next cube over when the conversation around us gets weird. At least I know it is not just me.

  25. MOL! Whatever makes the time pass, right?! This reminds our mom of when she was in high school and had to outline every chapter in her U.S. History book for homework. She and her class mates started thinking that their teacher didn't actually read all of the outlines, so they started inserting random and silly sentences - like "The polka-dotted horse galloped through town on a Tuesday with a pink elephant behind him."
    The teacher never noticed - Mom got A's on all of her outlines!!! MOL MOL!
