Seen at work returns!

After a long hiatus during which I couldn't find my USB connector for my phone, I bring you an action-packed Seen at Work!

First up: It probably doesn't come as a surprise to you that bank workers generate a lot of documents containing highly personal information--things like your bank account numbers, your balance, specific transaction details, your debit card numbers, etc. Each day, I probably generate at least seven or eight such pieces of paper that need to be shredded. We have big shred bins with locks on them, and we have big shredders around the building in case you feel a DIY shred moment coming on.

Still, who would've known we'd have the actual shredder that tried to eat Whoopie's character in Jumping Jack Flash?

You can even see a piece of her dress--the one that gets caught in the shredder!--still on the shredder! Every time I pass, I remember my mom's favorite scene, the Diana Ross "You Can't Hurry Love" lip-sync scene! It's obvious they spared no expense at my bank. I'll be watching for other movie memorabilia around the building. Maybe I'll find Obi-wan's light saber (for scanning MICR codes on checks?) or the evil copy machine from Office Space.

Next, we have this:This was seen in my work parking lot, but it counts. Other stickers on the (of course) mega-truck included "Rick Perry 2010," "Freedom isn't free," and one of those Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes) rip-offs in which Calvin pees on some other truck logo. Needless to say, I think this sticker pretty much tells you all you need to know about the driver of said mega-truck.

On that note, it seems like a good time to tell you that I'm leaving Texas! I've finally scraped together enough money to move back to Pennsylvania so I can be with my girlfriend. I'm really looking forward to being back up north, which is something I didn't think I'd be saying. But after the California FAIL, it'll be nice to get back to the last place I truly called "home." I'll be driving up the first week in March. Then it'll be mad job-huntin', much drinking of the sorely missed Yuengling Lager, and tons o' canoodlin' with AB. Can't wait!

Well, it will be nice to have you here in the mid-Atlantic region once again! It's about time you got the hell out of Texas anyway; if Perry goes through with the secession threat, you'd end up having to file for an immigrant visa.

"Freedom Isn't Free" and Calvin pissing! A real pinhead twice over.

Congrats on you soon-to-be move. Hey, at least you will avoid all the fucking snow the northeast has been getting.

It's about time you got home to Kat!

Despite being relatively content with my friends (and the weather, 9 months of the year) in this scenic little corner of the South, I must say that my inner Yankee has been clamoring more loudly every year to get back to sanity. Texas and South Carolina are just the most extreme examples of the southern mentality, but it's everywhere down here. And the anti-union be-grateful-you-have-a-job environment for the average employee is a nightmare. So heartiest congrats on the upcoming move.

So did the mega-truck have truck nuts, too? That would've completed the package. More seriously, I just don't get decorating vehicles that way, or the people who do that kind of stuff.

Randal Graves said...

Okay, you have to be lying about that truck encounter, no Murkan is THAT loon, right? Right.

Good luck with Pennsylvanian movery!

dguzman said...

CDP--definitely. I need to get out of here before I see another pRick Perry or Kay Bailey Hutchison ad. Disgusting.

Matty Boy--it was like something out of a movie. A movie like Deliverance.

PiNY--yup, and the heat that's coming soon enough to TX.

GKL--ouch, girl. Kat's the past. AB's the future!

Volly--you nailed it. And everyone down here keeps telling me about how this is the best job market in the country -- then why am I making $10.50 an hour and living with my parents?

Abu Scooter--me neither. I'm kinda glad I didn't see the driver.

Oh Randal, if only I were kidding. That's like every truck down here though.

If you leave for Pennsylvania to be with your girlfriend, what would your other girlfriend in Texas say? Me thinks you should get a head start before the knives start aflying.

"I'm leaving Texas." Were more exciting words ever said?
