Scorpion

work shenanigans

As noted previously, my cool co-worker got shipped out to another department at the start of the month. The move is a good one for him; the new location is like five minutes from his house. The downside, for me, is that they are moving the jerky co-worker onto my shift. (Longtime readers will remember that I accidentally stole the jerky co-worker's choice of shifts when I arrived here.) And admittedly, jerky co-worker has been less actively jerky to me as of recent, but still isn't a barrel of fun. So I'm not particularly a big fan of this sea change.

In other news, work is a nightmare today. I've been on the phone for the past two hours, straight.
