A day in the life of me!

5:30 a.m. I arrive at work and start to make coffee. A few minutes later my dear friend La comes in and we exchange sleepy buddy grins. A few minutes later Chuckie arrives with his gorgeous , deep dimmples and says" good morning". He does not even have to smile and his dimples show. What a nice way to face the day. Few minutes later in walks Reg. He's very nice , and speaking of dimples, he has one smack in the middle of his chin. And his eyes are a deep navy blue. Too bad these guys are both taken. Oh well! It's nice to be able to greet them in the wee hours of the a.m. At 6:00 a.m. sharp in walks Mary!!! " What the hell!!!" And What the F_ _ K is going on around here." These are Marys words. That's our Mary. Every other word is hell and the f, word. Oh my, Mary........ She does have a good heart ..I think. She is such an intersesting gal. But she sure speaks her mind. One can not help but either smile or shake there head at what comes out of Marys mouth. And believe me I have done both. Smile and shake my head. What a diverse work place I work in. Mary is always cursing at this thing and that. To most folk it may seem that she is very negative and bitter. But working with her I have seen the humorous side of dear Mary. I seem to always be able to make her laugh. That is a great thing. At the end of the day I have both Reg and Chuck gather in my supply room along with me. We discuss our frustrations about the job and our supervisors. We joke about things Like ( in case of mess break glass) in the glass is a gun, and watch out. For any one who does not know , I work cleaning up after cadets in the RCMP. ( if we only ran the job, things would be great) Any way it's a great way to pass the last few minutes of our time til we get off work. Tomorrow is friday. I am looking forward to it. I hope the time passes fast. Then I can maybe write a" weekend in the life of me." Cheers to all you working guys and gals. Hope your weekend is great. I look forward to mine.

Wandi,
I am glad that Mary has a such a good co-worker like you that looks beneath the rough exterior.

Hope to see you at tomorrow's march!

I like your post. It is an everyday occasion, observed through your eyes.

I can actually visualize your co-workers coming in, their faces, their moods at the time, and how the day ends.

Nothing extraordinary or front page material, just simple yet effective observations of the people that amaze you, the people that make the day amazing.

Like it very much. Have a good weekend!
