Editor A: Vinny, Curly called in sick. Want to cover court proceedings?
Me: I don't mind, but someone was supposed to go with me & show me around. Plus, I have an assignment for 11.
Editor A: Oh. We'll see what Editor C can do.
Editor C: Curly called from home already and found out there was nothing important going on in court today.
Editor A: Oh... Well go anyway, Vinny. Just walk and get the layout. You know! Talk to people 'n stuff. You can leave when you have to go to your 11 o'clock.
Me: Um... Ooookay...
While most people would have used this opportunity to go pay a bill or take care of some other errand, I am plagued by...
- Secret Paranoid Suspicion# 23: My employers, past and present, have me under surveillance. They track my every move. -
So, as a result, I spent the 45 minutes that followed that conversation wandering the halls of the courthouse like an idiot.
Since my phone is probably bugged as well, they're probably reading this post I'm typing up on it too.
All of this is normal. Right?
