Some lazy link love today (seeings as it’s Friday) – inspired by my temporary return to cubicle dwelling.
Overheard in the Office: this very funny page is part of the larger Overheard in New York site. Anyone who overhears something funny in their workplace can write in and post it for all to enjoy. And it’s interactive, so you can vote for your favourites. Perfect if you miss the funny moments of sharing an office with more than a handful of people.
This one made me laugh out loud:
11AM Return Calls to Clients
Co-worker on phone: Uh yes, this is [Brett Myers} with the Mortgage Company. It’s Wednesday, 10:30 AM…I’m sorry! It’s just that…well, you sounded like a voicemail voice.

True Office Confessions: all that CEOs find frightening about worker access to the internet – “bringing the confessional to the comfort (and discretion) of your cubicle… because a lot can happen between 9 and 5”. Just what you need to remind you that there are worse coworkers/bosses/jobs in the world.
