a new disorder

Today, after many weeks of waiting, the name plates came in for myself and several other employees, a couple of which started right around the same time I did.

Apparently, when the people came in to measure the door plates, (the contraption that holds the name plate) they measured incorrectly resulting in a name plate too small for our Sports and Rec Guy’s existing door plate. However they sent the name plate holder that matched the name plate, so to me, it was no big deal. Just take off the old one and put in the new one.

Not so for our Tech guy. It seams as though the size difference would really bother him. We’re talking centimeters here people. He’d rather sacrifice the extra cash and get another name plate that matches the existing door plate instead of using the new door plate because of a very minor size difference that no one would probably notice. Except for him.

When I said to him “You’re really OCD”, he said to me “No, I’m CDO which is like OCD, except the letters are in alphabetical order where they belong.”

Uh huh. Welcome to my world.

    umm he stole that joke. I think I told it to him…..and of course I stole it from someone else. Don’t you think he’s that clever.

    Yeah. Him = not clever. Just call him “Muffin” – it’s makes him much easier to take.

    R = clever. Which is why we call him by his name.

    I think it was a good answer. LOL. Some people just take things too seriously and obviously he’s been called OCD before so he is aware of the problem. Don’t let it bother you – it’s gonna bother HIM a lot more. Let him stress it out.

    BTW – I found you through Idle Ramblings and just thought I’d pop over and say hi. So hi! ;)
