Daylight Saving (Saves No One)

*So this happened before everyone had cell phones that automatically updated the time and your alarm for you. Kids these days will never know real struggle.

The Next Generation of Dog Breeds

It’s actually really hard to draw a dog with a look of contempt. That’s the best I could do. I am pretty sure this is where dog breeds are going though. (Please adopt. I even made myself vomit a little when I was drawing that bejeweled one.)

Repost: The Receptionist’s Revenge

You don’t know this, but tor the past 3-4 years, the “i” key on my keyboard has been broken. Do you know how often you use the “i” key? Okay, I didn’t use it at all in that sentence except to mention it, but I swear you use it a lot. That, on top of a seven-year-old computer and a tax refund, finally convinced me to get a new computer! Unfortunately, my old computer is so old that it’s going to take a thousand hours to transfer all my old files and apps, and another 500 to figure out a way to replace all the ones that are completely obsolete. In the meantime, I figured I’d repost an old favorite that I was just reminded of. Back soon, hopefully

*********************************

My first job out of college was not the glamorous job I had dreamed of. I wasn’t an editor of some small but up-and-coming publishing house. I wasn’t writing articles for The New Yorker.

I was a receptionist.

When you’re a receptionist, people seem to forget that you need your personal space.

People also seem think that you’re their personal assistant just because you happen to answer the phone.

I needed the job, so I couldn’t say anything.

But I had more power than people gave me credit for.

Never mess with the receptionist.
