Okay, its honestly too early in the morning for something to have made my day. But something has. I'm going to be nothing but smiles for the rest of the day.

Nonsense, you say? There's still so much day left, how could something be so wonderfully amusing that it wipes out possible future work related crap?

Well, I don't know if I have the words to accurately convey my sense of giddiness. But I'll try.

See, there's this woman at work and she's Grade A annoying. I think I've called her Dragon Lady in previous posts. I didn't give her that nickname, mind you, but its fitting. Some even refer to her as The Bitch Who Keeps Dumping All Of Her Work On My Already Huge Pile O' Stuff To Do. I could go on and on about her, but I'm in too good of a mood to ruin it by bitching (too much) about her. Let's just say that she's been getting on my nerves a lot lately. So much so that when she pops over my cubicle wall and impatiently tells me to fix something, regardless of whatever project I'm in the middle of, I'm not resisting the urge to roll my eyes at her as strongly as I should.

So anyways, today, she sent an email to me and Old Guy Ken. She doesn't have the best English, even on the best of days, and today is not one of her better days. Her emails are like little word puzzles you have to decode, her writing style very similar to Engrish. When she limits herself to just a couple of sentences she's usually okay but...

Well, in this morning's email, I'm sure she meant to type:

Yeah! Another vendor blah blah blah...

Instead she wrote:

Yap ! another vendor blah blah blah...


*tee hee*

Since I can't stick my tongue out at her and tell her to 'chill out' I can giggle at her emails. Is that wrong of me? It probably is. But I gotta get the frustration out somehow. It's either that or I start banging my head on my desk again. And that leaves a weird mark.

Yap !


  1. I think poor grammar is a must in our office. The spelling is incredibly suspicious too! It is a puzzle within every e-mail! :)


  2. you should sign all your emails to her with "noodles"

  3. i think the bad spelling and grammar i have to read every day at work is lowering my spelling IQ. (i read a lot of stuff written by people to whom english was not a first language, and by old timers who can't quite get the hang of this pesky keyboard contraption.) i think i'm becoming desensitized to bad spelling and the like.

    which is my excuse for any misspelled words or painful grammar you might come across in this here blog! :D

    i'd love to sign my emails with 'noodles', but she'd cry and complain that i'm using a racial slur. i'd have to come up with a good lie for the bosses first. "in my village, when we parted company with good friends, we shouted out the word noodles, in honor of... uh... longevity. Yeah. The longevity of the noodle! And..."
