Me = Milton

Gosh, folks! Sorry about all those cartoon-related posts. It's just, you know, when it rains, it pours sometimes.

I thought I was in compliance with my blogger Terms Of Service agreement, what with all those posts about my car woes, but it turns out I've been deficient in writing about one specific topic, i.e. "work!"

Well, just like my buddy Milton (pictured), my desk was moved recently and it was moved into the supply closet. I kid you not! The fact that I resemble Milton's older, less virile cousin coupled with my fairly accurate imitation of same kept visitors in stitches for weeks!

"I was told that I could listen to my radio programs at a reasonable volume. That's... that's my stapler."

Oh, and hey, folks, isn't it great when a co-worker uses your back as a handy storage unit for their many and varied knives?

Um, I just love post-it notes, don't you? Especially the "extra sticky" kind!

Er, ah, and what's the deal with "casual day?" Uh...

Oh, dammit! I can't do it! I can't bring myself to write about my workaday world. It's just too banal and, paradoxically, upsetting.

So, I'm in violation of my TOS! Go ahead, blogger and toss me off the Internet!

I... I... just... can't... do... it...

I love when he has to keep passing the pieces of cake along until everyone has one but him!

The picture of Milton could be a cartoon, or at least the inspiration for a sit-com - too funny. And now you both share this space?? Oh, my.

I always thought our business was sit-com material. One memory that jumps right to mind is the time a guy came in hopping up and down and screaming, "You hired my brother and he's a bigger crook than me!!! I want a job!!!"

Maybe this is why they call it "work"...

But seriously, Craig, you are certainly one of the sweetest people in Bloggerville. You deserve some respect... and some space... and a stapler...

Sometimes you just have to vent about work, otherwise your head will explode.

Office Space wouldn't have been the same without Milton, and (here comes the cheesy) Bloggerville wouldn't be the same without your cartoon revelations and childhood trombone adventures. Sorry to hear about the supply closet, but it's worth it or you wouldn't still be there, right?

wiz: Actually, Milton started out as a cartoon! Click HERE! He was later developed into the movie OFFICE SPACE. I'm sweet? SWEET!

allan:Seems like I always have somebody's old job. Better Things? I live in hope, my friend!

gale: The secret is to not vent about work while at work. I've learned this the hard way.

yinyang: I keep telling myself "it's worth it" but it's a hard sell, lemme tell ya!

Thanks for everyone's commiseration & support. (There's a reason why DILBERT is such a popular comic strip. Hint: It's not the finely-crafted artwork!)

I may yet write about work again...
