I needed to leave the building today

I let a co-worker get to me today. I got so irritated that I yelled at my co-worker while we were at the reference desk. I sent my supervisor an e-mail about the incident. When I saw him afterward, I just told him that I need to leave for a while. I decided to pick-up my lunch from the grocery store.

It's 7 blocks away, but it takes up to a 1/2 hour on public transportation each way. So I decided to take the underground train after waiting for 10 minutes at the island amongst cigarette smoke from either side of me. I thought, "I'll just go underground, at least they aren't allowed to smoke there."

The ride back is what reminded me of where I work. I thought that I would wait for the street car. I first notice the Bla*k Pa*es guy(bla*k pimp history) standing a little ways down on the island. You know how you just feel that someone is staring at you. I turned my head and there he was. That happened a few times, before I decided that I should take the underground train once again.

On my way to the underground entrance, who do I see sitting on the sidewalk bench waiting for the same streetcar: Web*ter's Colleg*ate Di*tionary guy. I thought, "Man, can I ever just leave work and not be reminded of that place!"

Sorry, someone made you angry enough to yell at work that always sucks especially when its a co worker. I live close to my job which is great since I ride the train but then I end up seeing customers on my day off. Sometimes duck when I don't feel like being bothered.
I hope tomorrow is better for you.

Thank you. I don't usually let my feelings show like that. Normal behavior for me is to just not talk to you if you aren't doing your job.

Yelling at a coworker? There's a post in there somewhere I'd like to read.

Rashan, I have talked a little about this particular woman in the past. I will try to do a post just for you, because she is a topic all by herself.
