Overheard in the Office

posted by on April 3 at 15:01 PM

“I just smell my fingers and if they smell like shit I wash them again.”

Said by a co-worker who asked that I not release his (or her) name.

And no, it wasn’t Nipper.

It's the "again" that's the saving grace here.

This is one of those cases where ya'll should think twice before posting on the SLOG. Just because you have the POWER and ACCESS to post does not really mean that the world (or at least the SLOG world) wants this kind of information. Thanks for your consideration.

my hands never smell like shit! I touch too many pieces of mail/UPS/Fedex parcels AND the front gate (some times covered in vomit) to go much longer than an hour without a hand wash.

We have this hand soap at work that while your hands are still damp (ie after a crude brown-paper-towel drying) smells bad. Not like poo, just like ass or something. Bleah. I didn't realize it (the soap DOESN'T smell like it) so I would triple wash my hands sometimes. Eventually I caught on.

Nipper? Never!
Dan? Forever!

I'd guess that Nipper is the most fastidious person in the Stranger office.

Fastidious -
Having to do with microorganisms which have unusual and/or complex nutritional needs and must be grown on enriched media.

Just my opinion but: Down with "Overheard at the Office" posts. There is something too self absorbed about them, too in-jokey, and too focused on Stranger personalities. Others may disagree, but I felt the need to express my feelings. Maybe you could start a separate blog, like that music one you have.

Oh, and who the hell is this Nipper guy?

Shouldn't 'tear-through' be enough of a tip off?

what if they smell like piss, instead? does piss get a pass?

this sounds like "tech shack" banter.

hello jude. I'm nipper! I'm a long time staffer, usta write more, um, and I cuss a lot...maybe you remember, back in 1995 I was voted all around most "fuckable" in the office?

Thanks. I'm not that much of a regular, and your name came up a few times in a row all of a sudden so I felt left out. Somewhat late, but congratulations for winning most fuckable.
