The LOUD mouth who sits in the cubicle one aisle over has been out. I believe it's been for a little over a week. All I noticed was the quiet, that is until another co-worker mentioned that the lady had been out sick.
I still didn't think anything was wrong. This woman has been working up to going out on disability leave for the past month. I thought she must have figured out how to get it approved.
No such luck. LOUD mouth returned to work yesterday, because she ran out of sick and vacation leave.
I have to give it to her, she played her part, coughing up a storm.
Today, she's not coughing, but she was on the telephone for the first 1 1/2 hour of work. Talking loudly about nothing as usual. Now, she missing, she just returned as I'm typing this.
I'll just wait and see how this plays out.
