The New Cast of Characters
Compulsive Cursing Guy - This dude sits next to me and every other word out of his mouth is either damn, ass, or mothafucka... I don't think he even realizes he is doing it. I wonder if he has Tourette's or something, cuz he is loud with it. Here's an example from today... "Deez muhfuckas is crazy. They think my ass is gonna read all this damn paperwork. Sheeeiiittt!!" He also likes to talk about all the "bad bitches" in the building. That was a quote, so dont get mad at me. LOL
Washed Up R&B Singer - There's a dude who is a singer for a group that I have heard of, but can't name any of their songs. I wouldnt recognize him if I saw their video on TV, but apparently other people know them. He loves to talk about when he was on 106 and Park and had a hit single and sing for the ladies and how his group is looking for a new label. I wonder if its real, but I'm too lazy to look it up.
Mississippi - I can't ever remember this girl's name, but I know she is from Mississippi, so that's what I call her. She is the touchy feely type. At first, I thought it was me, cuz on the first day, she had rubbed on my arm, but I notice that she's like that with everybody. She is pretty cool, in a I don't understand the words that are coming out of your mouth way. Our conversations are peppered with huh? and what'd you say?
Los Tres Amigos - There are three Hispanic women who always talk to each other in a mixture of English and Spanish. They don't talk to anybody else really, and I suspect that English is their second language, because they tend to leave out certain vowels when they read or write. They don't talk to the the next one in the group.
The Texican - Her heritage is Mexican, but if anybody asks where she is from, she says.. Texas in a tone that says how dare you assume I'm Mexican. I feel where she is coming from, but people keep asking her about her nationality. It's pretty politically incorrect, I guess.
The Gay Stereotype - Flame on, Flame off.. He introduced himself to the group by telling us about how he found the love of his life 6 months ago, and showed a picture of his boyfriend. Often says ridiculous Gay Stereotypical statements, like today when he told somebody, "chile I got 6 words for you... To The Left, To The Left.." complete with snapping fingers and neck roll. Oh, yeah, this guy is White.
The Guy That Stabbed Someone 37 Times - We were doing an ice breaker thing, and we had to play this game called Two Truth's and A Lie. Basically, you say 2 true things and one lie and the group has to figure out which one was a lie. One of this guys things was that he stabbed someone 37 times when he was 13. And that was not the lie. I'm watching my back around this cat. I never know when he might snap. Plus he mumbles when he talks so I don't know what he is saying. He could be talking to Satan or something.
The Overexcited Management Team - I can't describe just any one of them, but it seems like all the management from the VP down are drinking the Kool-Aid. It's a huge difference from my last spot where nobody ever seemed happy, and jealousy and back stabbing was a way of life. Don't tell anybody, but I think cynical T. Cas actually kind of likes their energy.
The Girl That Looks Good Sometimes - I only been at the spot a few days but this girl goes from looking good to looking bad at least 3 times a day. I dont know what it is. I think there was an episode of Seinfeld where Jerry was dating a girl like that.
100 Guns 100 Clips (I'm from New York) - This girl is from New York. She says it at least 3 times a day. I swear she looks for opportunities to bring that up. Like if someone says, nice weather we are having... this girl will say the weather is nice in New York. If someone is talking about the ride to work, she will say in New York, we rode the train.
The Overacheiving Security Guard - Son is like Supercop. He is the cell phone and parking lot police. Please don't pull out your phone in the Atrium and let him see you on the camera. He will come running after you to tell you to put your phone away. And God forbid you park in the visitor spots, he will call a tow truck in a second. Not to mention he is about 6'9" and 350 pounds and will intimidate the hell outta you. I mean, not me, cuz I'm a manly man, but other people. LOL
There are so many more characters... but I think I would be writing all day if I tried to describe all of them. The building is huge and I have already seen 4 or 5 people I knew from before I started working there. The only thing I don't like so far is that if I leave the building for lunch, there are no parking spaces by the building and I have to park in a lot that is so far away it might as well be in Africa and take a 5 minute walk to the building. All in all, I can't complain. I'm glad to have gainful employment and have something to do all day besides sit on my computer. Y'all be easy and have a great weekend.
