The Company Email

31 01 2007

So most people know of me as a level headed, calm, mellow kind of guy. But when you mess with my lunch, I can get quiet cranky! I sent the following email to my entire company after several weeks of an unidentified bandit removed my lunch from the refrigerator and let it sit out until lunch time.

To Whom It Concerns,
I don’t know who you are, but I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for taking my lunch out of the refrigerator and letting it sit all morning on the counter. This is the 3rd time in the past two weeks, not to mention other times you have done this to me and others with lunch containers.
I had made some space this morning when I placed my lunch in there. If you think there isn’t any space please tell me and I will gladly show you how to take things and arrange them in a refrigerator. It’s kind of like playing with those puzzles that my 3 year old nephew likes so much. You move the “pieces” around until they fit, and take out the “pieces” that shouldn’t be in the puzzle or that are old. And eventually everything will fit just right.
Luckily, I didn’t have anything that could spoil in there today. But I, along with the other three people who had their lunches left sitting out this morning, thanks and keep up the good work! Or just say something to us next time?

So please next time, just leave me unch alone!


What am I supposed to do with this thing?

Sometimes when I’m trying to think of what to say on this blog I can’t decide if I should be funny or serious. Because I can’t be both, right? You either have these highly political world event change the world blogs, or the ones like my sister-in-law where every other word out of her mouth is hysterical.

But I’m both… I can be very funny at times and then turn around and have a deep convo with you. So I hope you don’t think I’m trying to upset the blog gods or turn the world upside down. Just go with it and we’ll see where it takes us. Last time I tried one of these and I lasted 3 posts… almost there. See ya at the 3rd post!

You get what you pay for…

So my occupation as a graphic designer has its perks. Besides the rock star status and flocks of adoring fans, I can do side work. This is stuff I’m in control of, I choose what to do, I create something beautiful, I charge what I want! Do people have a reaction when hearing the fact that it might cast them some money to get my services? I just had a buddy of mine from school call me up the other day and ask me to do a website for him. Ok, sounds simple enough… only to find out, when I tell him I’ll need money in exchange for my goods & servces, there are now other guys he knows that are going to do it for free. Shocking! That was quick!

Thats all, just need to rant a bit. Figured it would be a good opening shot into the WordPress world. Be back soon!
