Howdy doody, readers! Happy to hear that the pop up problem is a non-issue. Whoo hoo!
So you wanna hear something freaky? Here's what happened to me the day before yesterday: I was sitting here in my little kingdom of one (my office) which is tucked away in a niche behind the coference rooms. This man walked past my office and then came to a halt in front of my door. Now I don't get too many visitors back here (I think management fears I might bite the customers), so I just figured the dude was lost.
I asked him if I could help him (read: polite version of what the heck do you want!?), and he said that he had seen my nameplate outside the door and just HAD to stop.
Why, you ask? Naturally, I also wondered.
Turns out, this guy had the exact same last name as mine minus the last letter. Why is this freaky? Well, I'll tell ya. My last name is not even remotely common. It is uncommonly uncommon. I have never met anyone with the name who wasn't a relative. And guess what - this guy just started with the company about 3 weeks ago and lo and behold - he's a distant relation. I'm in a metropolitan area of 8-10 million people and not only does a relative start working at my company, but he also has an office on the same floor of the skyscraper I'm in!? (insert Twighlight Zone theme music here)
All I can say is that he better do a good job here; if he's a screwup I don't want people thinking it's me... hehe
