Let’s be honest here, this blog is nothing but a series of #FirstWorldProblems. This is a fact that I openly acknowledge, and embrace. I share my daily “struggles” with you because I find them amusing and I hope that you do too.

A friend shared this video with me earlier today. I felt it was appropriate to share it with you on this blog because well, some “pay it” forward positive karma never hurt anyone, right?


Might Want Wash Your Hands After Touching That Phone…

During the work week, my roommates and I keep in touch with each other through g-chat. They are normally the reason I am over in my cubicle, cracking up like a mad woman. Today, was no exception… 
G-Chat from Panda Loving Roommate:
“OMG CHELS!!! My story of today:
I’m at Chipotle – and while in line, this guy leans over and asks me if I “know how to attach a picture to an email?”.
So i try to explain it, but he wasn’t getting it.
I decided to just showed him how to do it. I tap on the email body and show him
how to scroll to the insert picture, and then I saw what the email started with…
hey sexy 😉” 
I’m 99% sure i just helped an older man send a dirty picture via email.”
Me: “It’s taking me a second to get my jaw off the floor right now!!! Omg, I’m dying right now lol.”
Seriously, can’t make this stuff up.

Thanks…I Think?

Boss #2 told me today that he will be putting in his 2 weeks notice soon. I am sad that he is leaving, but very happy for him for having this opportunity. When I mentioned to him that I need to get my job searching act together, this happened…

Boss #2: “Yeah totally, if you ever need a letter of recommendation just let me know.”


Me: “Sweet, thanks! It should say “Chelsea is the best employee, ever.””


Boss #2: “…and that she is very sassy, and will always keep you on your toes. Sometimes, she even does her work.”


Me: “Great, with a recommendation like that, I’ll never find another job…”


Best of luck at the new job, Boss #2! Now it is definitely time for me to make my workplace escape… 


And I Thought I Was Bad At Hitting On People

Maybe it’s just me, actually it probably is just me but… I really don’t understand why guys think it’s a good line to ask the girl in front of them in line to buy their food. Personally,  I don’t find it particularly charming and I never know how to respond to it. Especially when you are probably old enough to be my father, but I guess that’s what I get for just standing there minding my own business.

Guy behind me in line: “So, you want to buy my lunch for me?”

Me: *nervous laugh* “No, maybe next paycheck.”


Guy behind me in line: “So, you’ve probably been working here long. What like 10 years?”

Me: “Nope…”


Guy behind me in line: “Is that right?”

Me: “Yeah, 10 years ago I was 16 and in high school…”

*buy my own lunch, and strut away*


This is why I wear my headphones everywhere…so I can avoid awkward conversations like that one.

I Want To NEVER Have That Conversation Again

The most convenient restroom to my office, is a unisex bathroom in the office next door. It’s always awkward when you use it, because you often run into the person who has used the restroom before you, or into the person who will be using the restroom after you. Today I happened to run into my project manager…


And he, like most men, had left the seat of the toilet up.


Anyways, the acoustics in the bathroom are pretty loud, so you can hear what is going on in there…say like, the dropping of the seat of a toilet.


So when I came out of the bathroom, one of the people from the office next door was in the kitchen area right next to the bathroom and I had the following conversation with him:

Guy from Next Door: “I think you might need to have a restroom etiquette conversation with Mr. (*Insert Project Manger’s name).”

Me: “Ummm, I, uh…. about what exactly?

Guy from Next Door: “Leaving the toilet seat up. It’s a pet peeve of mine.”

Me: *thinking to myself, “why are you listening to me in the bathroom...”* “Mine too, but he’s my project manager so I don’t believe I will be having that conversation with him anytime soon…”

Guy from Next Door:  “Oh, he’s you project manager. Then maybe you shouldn’t, I think I will though.”

Me: “Yeah…You go right ahead and do that. Let me know how that goes.”


Don’t think I’ll be using that bathroom again, anytime soon. Seriously, probably the most bizarre and random conversation I have ever had in my life. 



…I Always End Up Just Unplugging ‘Em

I guess being a former graphic designer, means that I know all things computer?


I say this because, the people in my office often come to me to troubleshoot their tech issues.


I’m not really sure why. Because I just go to someone else for mine, and make this face…


Or I just use this magical thing, called Google. Heard of it? *roll eyes*

Oh Where, Oh Where, Could My Tech Support Be?

Day #3 and I still have not seen or heard from IT services.


As a general rule, I do my best to be polite and understanding with those in the service industry. Several phone calls and emails later…I’m still trying


It’s not like I need to do my job or anything.


So much backed up paperwork. I’m screwed.
