I learned a new word today!

So, I come into work and go to fetch my timecard out of my box to clock in. It is not in its usual place, so I have to pull out a few things to find it. A piece of paper that I have not seen before catches my eye.

I read and start to laugh. The girl I am relieving looks at me. She asks why am I laughing? I say, "Look, someone has left their vocabulary homework in my box. Wasn't that nice of them to share their knowledge?"

She says, "What are you talking about?" I hand her the paper and she looks at it, then looks at me. I am still laughing as she says how mean is that. I just shrug my shoulders and say, "It's great I can further my education even at work. What a helpful individual!"

She says, "Wow. That's messed up. Why would someone do that?" I just laugh again and put the paper back into my box. She leaves as I am still cracking up.

The big joke is that someone placed a paper with the word hypocrite complete with the definition on it for me to read.

Awww, I feel so special. That I was chosen to receive the word of the day. What an honor!

Now, do you know who put it there?

I don't. Not yet.

Of course it makes me laugh that someone would be so petty thinking that acting like we are in high school and putting notes in my locker is appropriate professional behavior.

For now, I will still sit back and continue my job and just wait to see what happens.

Passive/agressive communication. Always soooo effective :)

Sorry about that. At least you can laugh at it. That is the most important part!
