My office cubicle is one of three "corners". Slutty sits in the middle corner, I sit to his left and another colleague (Whiny.. and now renamed Sneaky) sits to his right. Which means Whiny/Sneaky and I sit diagonally across each other, back to back.
On late nights, Bento Set usually pops over to our litte corner, sits on Whiny/Sneaky's desk and we all turn abd face inward and just chit chat. It's these moments that I enjoy the most about working late- where we gossip and chatter on without having to worry about other colleagues hearing what we say.
One night, Bento Set went over to Whiny/Sneaky's desk as usual when he suddenly said, "Omg bon! You have to see this! Whiny/Sneaky can see your computer!!!"
Not sure what he was talking about, I get up and walk over and tells me to sit at her desk and look at the mirror. Sure enough, instead of my reflection staring back at me, I see the reflection of my computer screen perfectly.
So being the passive aggressive person that I am, I decided to change my wallpaper to one that said, "STOP STARING AT MY LAPTOP, BITCH!!!"
In reverse font. Wahahahahaha. (Thanks esdee!)
I eventually decided to remove the word "bitch" but that wallpaper made me quite happy for a couple of days.
Whiny/Sneaky also had this really annoying habit of talking LOUDLY on the phone, so loud that you could hear her clearly from the far end of the office. On a particularly inspired day, I changed my wallpaper to say, "IT'S NOT NECESSARY TO TALK SO LOUDLY ON THE PHONE".
Then of course, I realised that she probably couldn't see the messages when I was doing work, so I set both wallpapers as my screen saver. Hehehe. I can be sneaky too, eh?
Anyway, perhaps it's a coincidence. Perhaps my wallpaper and screen savers were a success. But Whiny/Sneaky now doesn't seem to talk so loudly on the phone anymore, and the mirror has been adjusted. Hehe. Small triumphs.
