Every day at the office should be this much fun!

This morning when I hit the Starbucks the line behind me, instead of curling around and forming inside the place, kept on going out the door. People in the line were clearly people who’d been in before and knew that the standard was to keep the line inside and the door closed so it didn’t get all humid inside and the flies stayed out–for the most part. Still, after I saw 5 people trailing out the doorway, I did speak up and say to them that it would be easier to bring the line inside. Easier mainly because there’s a second entrance that lets people in right about where the end of a curled around line would be. It’s silly for them to come in, walk through the coffee shop and then have to walk back outside to get “in line”. Didn’t much matter though since when I spoke up, the people in line looked at me not only as if I’d grown a second head, but that they still weren’t impressed. “We’re trying to have a cold, impersonal and impractical morning here, buddy, do ya mind?”

I imagine it’s the same kind of look my co-workers might give me if I had a sudden attack of the experimental sillies one afternoon, like the EepyBird guys and their Sticky Note Experiment:

My co-worker just remarked: This place is already giving me a headache and it’s not even 8 a.m. with good cause, but I’m trying to get outta here early and maybe get a happy hour in this evening. Still no plans for the big day, but drinking is always a good start!

    @lacochran: We don’t have the pop-up style here, but next time I need decorative streamer type things on the cheap, I’ll know exactly what to get.

    @Gilahi: I have no social life and a high speed internet connection? πŸ™‚
