A Conversation with B

Filed under: PolenBabble, Kvetch! Kvetch! Kvetch! — Twin C @ 10:45 am

Here’s a conversation I had last night with Twin B:

C: Hey B!

B: Mwaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. . .

C: B, why don’t you post to the Polenblog? We want you and Twin D to post already! The point of the Polenblog is for all of us to be posting.

B: Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrr. . .

C: It’s really fun, too. Go log in and type something. Type anything! Complain about stuff! It’s what I do! I made a Kvetch! category specifically for bitching!

B: Nyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrr. . .

C: You and Twin D are lamos.

B: Wrrrrrrrrrrrrrnnnnnnnnnn. Bacon.

What is astounding to me is that, as a Polenberg, B and D should have NO problem finding something to complain about. It’s in our blood. When I win the World Series of Poker, I plan on bitching that I have to give so much of it to taxes, even though I believe the filthy rich SHOULD pay more in taxes. What the hell do you need all that money for? Give all the poor and middle class people a frickin’ break! Um, I digress.

Work is going to suck today. One of the people on my team is going to be out for two weeks, and I am going to be tutored by her as I have to take over her responsibilities, which means I have to be in charge of this whole system of grants - grants coming into the office, entering them into the database, sending them to the grant review committee, replying to people when their grants are approved/denied, sending people their checks when they come in, blah blah blah, I’m not happy about this at all, and my reward for doing a manager’s work for two weeks? $100 on my “Stars Card” - a credit card that can be used at certain stores. It used to be up to $500 at a time, but they’ve cut the program back because we have too many employees and not enough profit. Well, at least I’ll get some sort of bonus. I’m sure there are admins out there who have to do extra work all the time and get nothing but irritated.

No more Creme Eggs in the pantry. I have to remember to hit a drug store on the way home today. . .

  1. That’s beautiful, sir. A highly nuanced portrayal of Twin B in his natural, vegetative state.
