'Gimme Shelter' at work

Rating
Saturday, February 4 2017

I was at my desk at work. My boss, Jodie, was talking to me while I was trying to save a wire story. The first part of the slug was three or four uppercase letters. I thought I had saved it already, but because Jodie was talking to me, I got sidetracked. Somehow there was music playing in the office. It was from speakers in the ceiling. When the song ended and another came on, the title showed up on my computer screen. It was "Gimme Shelter" by the Rolling Stones. I sang along.

A tape measure with comics on it

Rating
Monday, January 23 2017

I was working for some kind of company. I was in a hall outside the office. All this was unfamiliar. I was with a couple of co-workers (unfamiliar people). I had either accepted another job or was considering an offer. I was holding mail. I opened one big envelope from Meijer. There was a long tape measure in it. It was folded and held together with a rubber band. I looked at part of it and saw that it said it was 6 inches. I wondered why it would say that if it was so long, but then I realiz

In trouble over a minor thing at work

Rating
Saturday, August 20 2016

I was at work. Dave, a team leader, came to my desk and asked if he could talk to me about some things I had been missing. My desk was in a different place but not far from where it actually is. I think it might have just been next to where my desk is. Dave took me to the area in front of Marc's desk. He lowered what appeared to be a cage from the ceiling. The cage was made of white PVC. It surrounded us. Dave told me I had been using the wrong preposition in some headlines on crime stori

Badmouthing my boss at work

Rating
Saturday, April 23 2016

I was at work early to work on features pages. I finished a section but screwed up. I had edited a car article, and there was some kind of artpiece in a tire. The text on the tire was black. When someone looked over it, they said text in tires are supposed to be any color but black. They asked if whoever edited this had gotten the note. I was embarrassed because I saw the note but didn't believe it made sense in this instance. The text on the tire was the name of the tire brand, Goodyear.

Someone in the company dies

Rating
Saturday, January 9 2016

I was at work. We had just gotten an announcement that one of the higher-ups with the company was in town. He'd be swinging by the office.    Time passed. There's a gap here. All I know is it was later in the day. Our HR director, who was the HR person from my last job, said she had an announcement. She said the higher-up had died. She said he died twice today, once in a helicopter and the second time in the hospital.    She told us his wife needed condole

Difficult work instructions

Rating
Friday, November 6 2015

I was at work but it was my old house. I was in my living room for a shift change. My old boss Deb was handing wire duties off to me. It was my first day doing them.    She handed me a notebook that she said contained the day's wire stories. I opened it and saw that it was just highly detailed drawings of Batman. I asked how that helped.    She told me that the days of the week got special tags so people could find them. Monday was "Mon," Tuesday was

I skip my birthday

Rating
Monday, September 30 2013

I was in an unfamiliar building with my boss. We were talking about something not work related but also not important. I realized that I had forgotten my birthday the day before. I was on a trip and didn't access my phone. I didn't check to see if I had missed calls or texts. I just wondered how many messages I'd have on Facebook.

I tell people about the bad CEO

Rating
Thursday, June 27 2013

I was in the office of a CEO. I don't know what the company was. We were in a high-rise. The CEO stole lots of things from my co-workers. That made me angry, so I wrote an article about it. My article made The New York Times rights away. I saw it on the website on my phone. I picked up a magazine in his office that had an article about him, and I wrote over it in marker to show how bad he was. His office faced Central Park in New York, though I didn't exactly feel like we were in New York

My brother and I get cable

Rating
Friday, September 21 2012

My brother and I were in some woods somewhere. We had a cabin and were trying to set up cable. There was a truck that had some cables in it, and we were supposed to go in the truck to get cable. My brother grabbed a cable and connected it to another one in a little switch box in the ground. The cable didn't work. The cable man tried to tell him what to do. The cable man looked like my boss David. My brother also was playing around with the Internet. He had an ethernet cable, and that somehow h

Being chased on a bike

Rating
Thursday, July 19 2012

I was riding a bike in a city. A man from my last job was chasing me. It might have been my former supervisor Cary, though I'm not sure. I turn corners and ride through alleys. He gets ahead of me. I yell and cuss at him. I hurl scathing insults at him him. I try to make him feel bad for what happened to me.
