I’m sure none of you actually noticed, but it has been a little over a week since my last post. Things have been crazy at work. Baby E has been sick (She’s doing better now, but it’s been a rough week). So, I thought I’d start back off with something that happened at work yesterday.
Because things have been so crazy there, I’ve had to work with the Japanese woman in the office (You may remember her from this story. Or maybe this one instead) a lot more than usual. Yesterday, she was in the tech room with the guy who helped get me the job. The tech room, and the room I was in, are separated by a wall with windows. In the middle of the wall is an opening that has a conveyor belt going through it. That’s how we get the radios out of the tech room and into the warehouse.
I was standing at the opening BSing with them for a few minutes when she pointed to something on the conveyor belt. “You need to screw that box,” she told me.
Me and the other guy looked at each other in confusion. “Uhh…..What?”
She pointed to the box again. “You need to screw that box over.”
Once more, the guy and I looked at each other through the window, wondering what the hell she was talking about. “Uhh….What???”
“You know….move it out of the way.”
The other guy asked, “You mean ‘scoot the box over’?”
This time, she looked confused. “What was wrong with what I said?”
I left it alone. Explaining it to her would’ve probably not gone well for me.
