Things I'd rather not hear at work...

Thought for Today..



OK, so more than the whole "you're fired" thing...'

What would YOU not want to hear?

How about listening in on a conversation at work..you know...one of those boss-comes-out-and-starts-conversing-with-the-troops kind of thing?


"Well, then we'd have it to identify the body.."


"Oh yes..I see where that would be handy.."

"So are they the same tests to do body identification?"


"Yes - the same information could be used to identify the bodies.."


"Wait! What??"

And so it goes..just another day at the office...


In my 45 years of working..(yes, I did start when I was ..uh...2?) I would never have guessed that I'd casually be discussing 'body identification' with my co-workers..

There you have it...and how was YOUR Monday??

That is weird for us but probably normal for you. When we were on our last trip, we had a funeral director with us she had some funny conversations like that.If I was you I would be able to write a funny post about my Monday because I went for a mammogram. Now I have very small boobs so they have to swing on them and stretch them to fit across the machine and nearly pull them off my chest.It was only a routine check up and I am lucky to have another clear result.

oh girl, people would be mortified if they could hear some of our work conversations. (nursing home nurse... and you know, people are dying all the time.... lots of funeral home workers visit... well, you can only imagine our conversations!) Last week the funeral home worker and I were transferring a patient to his stretcher, when he looks over at me and says "guess who I embalmed today?" and proceeds to tell me about a "famous" person in our neighborhood who had killed himself that morning.

I really would like to hear more about your work. It sounds fascinating...DNA! Do tell...when you're in the mood and if it's not highly classified and telling would get you in trouble with the DC crowd...

I love that faux motivational poster. I used to work at a place that had them everywhere. Each of us "got to" (had to) pick out one to hang above our desks. How I hated them!!
