And nurse it there! One of the folks that sit diagonally in front of me in Cube City has got this cough. Truth be told she is fairly annoying anyway. Got a voice that grates on you like a cat's claws on a chalkboard. And she gets loud when she's on the phone.
But I digress.
Anyway today she's got this cough that sounds like she is rasping up old, black blood. By late in the afternoon your intrepid narrator had had enough.
"Dammit! Pam, I'm gonna throw a cough drop at you!"
"I've got some right here. Bu-"
"Jesus! Then have one! For god's sake!" Never a doubt where you stand with me.
She staarted to explain but no one was listening. Then I heard the distinctive crinkle of a cough drop being unwrapped.
There was laughter over the walls in Cube City. And then I got a flurry of IM's. Some were thank yous. Others were we wondered how long it was gonna take you. And one thank god you're back, she's been doing that for days!
Did one of y'all think to say something to her? For crissakes! What a bunch of wusses!
I don't think she'll be back in the office this week. Unfortunately neither will I.
Silence is Golden. Somtimes...
