Seems Legit – Please Respond

Please Respond

In my last post A Message To My Concerned Colleagues, I talked about when folks email a distribution list. Today I come in and I get THIS gem which sent to the email address And while I’m no longer a member of that list my immediate response was… “Seems legit.” Subject: hi From: ciraoncrydermanayx5509 To: corp_it_contractors Hi corp_it_contractors How are you?

A Message To My Concerned Colleagues

Hair Care Products

We all know them. Those emails that go out to an entire distribution list. 9 times out of 10 it’s not directed to you so you read the first sentence or two and then just delete it and move on. I got one the other day though that I read top to bottom and simply had to share. This was sent to all the employees that work on my floor by one of my friends … Continue reading

Come On Folks… Make Some Coffee

Coffee Cup

Folks… when you work in an office environment and you drink coffee, have some decency and make a pot if you take last cup.  It won’t kill you.  This simple act of brewing a pot of coffee will certainly NOT kill you, and will make other coworkers (who are looking for coffee) want to kill you less. Well, that’s in case there’s no fancy Coffee Dorks machine there. Oh, and don’t think that just cause … Continue reading

The Jean Tag – Over Or Under?

Jean Tags

Luckily I work in an office environment where jeans are acceptable work attire.  That said I wear them most days (when I don’t have a client meeting) and I had a thought cross my mind this morning – over or under? Most of my jeans have these tags along the belt line.  Many brands give you the option of putting your belt under the tag so you can still see it.  I’ve always been one … Continue reading

Where Did All This Traffic Come From?

Where Did All This Traffic Come From?

I leave the house at exactly the same time every morning (give or take 2 or 3 minutes).  The morning routine is the same: Get ready for work Talk to the G-man Get milk for the boys Take dog out Kiss G & Mom goodbye Head out For some reason, my commute time in the last couple of weeks has gone up by about 10 or 15 minutes.  The obvious culprit is that school is … Continue reading

The Final Wedding Weekend of the Summer

Beach Wedding

For us this has been a summer of weddings.  Denver, Chicago, Cleveland and now Charleston.  It’s weird how after a couple of summers with no weddings… BAM we get hit with 4 in one summer.  Certainly not complaining – we had a BLAST! (See: I Poked The Wedding Cake, Combos, Fireworks and Canoes – The Bachelor In Brookville and A Weekend With The Boys Part I and Part II for details). This weekend’s travel was … Continue reading

The Lunchtime Conundrum

The Check

We’ve all been there.  We go out to lunch with some co-workers, go to dinner with some buddies, go to a bar with the gang.  The check comes and everyone’s eyes glaze over.  First off, when you’re with your boss there’s that moment where everyone is wondering if the boss is going to pick up the check.  After that’s passed (and everyone realizes they’re paying their own way) someone will generally grab for the check … Continue reading

Rainy Wednesday Morning Musings


There is a car across the street from my office with it’s alarm going off.  This has been occurring about every 12 minutes for the past 3 days.  This is rather annoying.  I’m currently thinking of ways to wipe this car from the face of the Earth. Both the Indians and Cavs appeared to be playing the same game last night.  It went something like this: start off good, get a huge lead, think you’ve … Continue reading
