Before we start, I’d like to say YAYYYYY!! The Googles digs me! They gave my blog the “Best Blog of the Day” Award. I am GEEKED beyond reason, and I’m currently doing a jig, shuck, jive, and a slight scooting motion. THANKS GOOGLES!!
Anywho, WELCOME TO GUEST BLOGGER’S WEEK ON LUVVIE’S RANDOM RANTS!!!!! *Crowd goes wild*
This week, I decided to get 5 of my favorite hilarious bloggers to write and rant here at Luvvie’s Random Rants. While I put my feet up (and drink some delicious French Vanilla Hot Cocoa), they will enthrall you with their tales of random, so everyday this week will prove to be interesting.
To kick off the
“Luvvie Is Being Lazy Week” Guest Bloggers Week is Eysqueen, one-half of the Cubicle Crusaders. Their conversations throughout their workweek are never dull, oft-filled with anecdotes of IG. Enjoy.
Roaches in my Cube
Most of the time I paint vivid pictures to illustrate what I go through day to day as an office worker. Today I’m NOT being metaphorical, this some real shit. Today I had to have a coworker kill a roach that was lamping in my cube. The reaction around the cubes ranged from eww to laughs and smiles, and once the bug was squashed it was back to business as usual. This bug incident could be written off as a day in the life living in a cube, but I refuse to let the memory of the roach die. This IS NOT OKAY. There was a freakin’ roach in my cube! I swear I was in shock for a few hours after the roach died. Lil T was rocking in her bug free corner while the Cubicle Crusader was just trying to maintain.
Here comes the tie in to social commentary. I think that it’s sad that we’ve, I’ve, gotten used to so much janky shit that things that would normally offend the average person are written off as an L to the cubicle game for me. I step over, around, and past the homeless and begging everyday to get from the train to my job. I have a deepening dislike and zero empathy for a group of people I once advocated for. They are just in my way now, and they stink. I’m a crab in my cubicle barrel with layoffs looming over my head, thinking of ways to make the old retire and the incompetent get fired. And to top it all of, I HAD A ROACH IN MY CUBE and everyone thought that was ok.
I pour out a lil tap water for the pieces of my soul that die everyday that I’m here, and a lil for the roach who had no business here to begin with, but bit the dust just the same.
