Who needs a stapler?

Filed under: Elle & Zed,It's Me, Lass — by InterstellarLass @ 8:55 pm

First day, my LAN jacks didn’t work till after lunch. Second day, I didn’t get a phone till after lunch. I have staples, but no stapler. I have tape, but no tape dispenser. I’ve been to four meetings, and there are a list of issues. And I think I’m going to like it. 🙂

I haven’t been assigned a project yet. But by Thursday I should know what I’ll be working on for the forseeable future. And I ran into one of my friends’ neighbors that works there too! So far everyone has been very nice and don’t have to walk a mile from where I park to my office. Thanks for all the well wishes. So far things are looking good!

Zed has basketball playoffs starting Thursday night. I’ll have to miss Elle’s open house, which she is just torn up over. But when I told her I’d skip Zed’s open house if she had basketball playoffs, she felt better. We’re all ready to cheer for Zed! Go Zed Go!


  1. Go Zed! Oh, how I wish I had your zest for sporting events. At least I get fired up about B’s soccer. I love watching little girls knock each other down and slide-tackle!

    Staples are totally over-rated. Totally.

  3. Not me …. I break all my staplers.

    I’m so glad you are enjoying your new job!

  4. Aw, stapler-less staples just seem so sad.

  5. Transitions are always slightly bumpy. Hopefully, you get a full supply of office supplies soon. Good luck!

  6. I think you have to have a stapler and tape dispenser before they give you a project.

  7. Well, heck. I’ve been at my job for two months and just today got an official nametag – they even spelled my name correctly! You’ve already got TAPE!?

  8. For some reason, this reminds me of the Seinfeld where Kramer starts to work and Jerry asks what’s in his briefcase and he says, “Crackers.”

    Good luck on the new job.

  9. Well if the people seem fine then that’s pretty much half the battle over :>)

  10. Good luck on the new job…I forget what that’s like actually. Though I’ll be figuring it out real quick shortly. You’ll be great in your new position!

  11. I guess new jobs are in the air! I got me one of those too!

    It’s a shame that our economy is so dreadful though? Right? It is dreadful isn’t it? The more I read the newspaper and watch the news, the more I hear it’s a downward spiral.
