Only 8 More Days

Only 8 more days of work until my vacation. 8 days is nothing right? Our Christmas party (really it's just a dinner) is Saturday and some people are already talking about what they will wear. I can't see buying a special outfit just for one dinner. I have a thrift store blouse that I haven't worn to work yet. I think I can get away with wearing it over a black dress I already have. My only problem is shoes. One guy who is critical of everyone else's clothing said that his girlfriend has over 200 pairs. I said she could lend me one pair for the dinner, that way at least he can't comment on my shoes.

I wonder if I can bring home enough leftovers to make lunches for a few days. I did that last year and was, of course, teased for it. The alternative is to waste the food or stuff myself. I don't see anything wrong with making a good meal last even longer.

His girlfriend has 200 pairs of shoes, and he is being critical of you? Seriously?

What a bother to manage 200 pairs of shoes. That's to much work

He has more shoes than I do. I am shoe-challenged. I would need a whole room just for shoes if i had that many. And he calls me a hoarder. I guess shoes are ok to hoard if they are "in style".

Wow. I have 3 pairs of shoes and a pair of boots. I can't imagine needing that many shoes.

The more I read about your coworkers the less I like them.

Kathy, I guess when you have lots of clothes you need lots of shoes. I but I have 1/8 of the clothes she has.

Working Rachel, my coworkers are equally annoying and amusing. Just one big dysfunctional office I guess. Must be why I like The Office tv show.
