Get me out of here…

Back in the saddle again. The Thanksgiving holiday is gone and I’m back at work.

I’m actually sitting here contemplating what could possibly be listed on journalismjobs.com right now. I’m not really feeling all the poignant at the moment to write anything super stellar. I’ll wait till I get home. But right now I’m sitting back in my little cubicle world, editing, stressing over whether or not one of my employees got her raise or not and if I turned in the paperwork correctly, worrying about the fact that I’ve never seen New York and wondering why it’s 50 degrees in here when it’s about the same temperature outside — I want to get the hell out of here.

The cubicle boozer

What do you do when you suspect the coworker sitting in close proximity to you is drinking in their cube? Do you complain? Or do you peep over your own damn cube and ask for him/her to share?
Here is my synopisis so far:
1.) You have drank a few times with this person and know they are quite capable of doing this.
2.) You often hear not one, but two pourings from what sounds like two different bottles. One of which is a Sprite container.
3.) You notice plenty of water bottles hanging out. Hello, vodka is clear.
4.) This person makes very frequent trips to the icemaker after returning from his/her car.
5.) And more importantly, as the day goes on, this person gets more campy, chatty and red.

DING! DING! DING!

It really isn’t your business you say to yourself. But you can’t help but chuckle every time you think about it.
