Cat-apulted To A New Level Of Crazy

| San Jose, CA, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Pets & Animals

(I’m known for being a bit of a crazy cat lady; my boyfriend and I have three. Coworker #1 also adores cats, but our work is just his day job. In his ‘other life’ he’s a vocalist in a death metal band and his label sends him out on tours, ranging from weeks to months, two or three times a year, so having pets is out of the question. He’s chatting with another coworker when I walk by. He suddenly calls after me:)

Coworker #1: “Oh! I thought of you this weekend!”

Me: “Should I be worried?”

Coworker #1: “No, I just went to the grocery store and there was a little kitty in the parking lot. He didn’t have a tail and he was SO CUTE. I spent about five minutes chasing him in circles trying to pet him and yelling, ‘WHY?! COME BACK! I JUST WANT TO LOVE YOU!’”

Me: “Aww. I completely understand.”

Coworker #2: *shaking his head* “There’s something wrong with you guys.”


Here We Pokémon Go Again

| CT, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Geeks Rule

(My boyfriend and I work in different departments of the same place. On a night we are both closing, I finish my closing tasks before he does, so I go to sit and wait for him. I open up the new Pokémon Go game and see something.)

Me: “Babe! There’s a Squirtle outside! I’m gonna go walk around the building to see if I can find it!”

Boyfriend: “Here, I don’t have one yet. Take my phone, too!”

(Our manager couldn’t stop laughing at us.)


Dawn Of The Dreams Of The Dead

| Washington, DC, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Zombies

(One effect that a high-stress job has on me is that I dream intensely about work. I’m currently working as a seasonal employee at a store — obviously a high-stress job. I do, however, very much enjoy what I do.)

Me: “I’ve been dreaming about being at work. I’m surrounded by demanding customers and I can’t make them go away.”

Manager: “When I dream about being at work, I imagine all the customers are zombies. Then I can smack them on the head.”

(Yep, I like this job.)
