Puff and Play

A little play on words (smoking, playing a game on a Smartphone, and drinking coffee)
The other day at work some guys I don’t know too well started to talk about what they do on their coffee break, and as a typical women who loves to hear about what others do….. I knew I had to listen in….I’m sure some of you do that too or not???

To me it was rather amazing to listen to how they took their coffee breaks… sure there are those who just stand around and sip their coffee and hope to get the low-down on what is going on in the office without actually partaking in any conversation; there are those who take their coffee back to their desks and dream about destinations outside of the office, and the sort who know everything going on in the office (if they actually do…. That could be questionable???)

Nowadays there is a new sort of coffee breakers who say the heck with conversation and absorb themselves in the world of coffee, having a smoke and their games on their Smartphone’s….. That’s today’s world whether you like it or not…. Welcome in the 21st century!!

But what is important here is just to image how they manage to “puff and play” and drink coffee all at the same time…. Being a woman with an imagination I can picture it now as to how they multi-task on their coffee break…..
All you have to do is sit-back and shut your eyes to image how it would be (Firstly, though read below and then shut your eyes to get the full picture..)

Now to do this properly one has to get a hold of the coffee break, Smartphone, ashtray set-up, otherwise forget it! This set- up is for everyone and not restricted only to guys…. Before heading to the break area one must strap around their waist the handy coffee break belt with the built in, pull-out tray, ashtray and Smartphone holder, so leaving your hands free for other important things , should they arise.

You need a coffee mug that is not too heavy, otherwise the tray could get too heavy and tip over and you spill coffee on yourself…. A definite no go in today’s office world! And don’t forget to keep your ashtray clean too.. No old butts!!

Okay! Coffee break time has started and everyone is getting their coffee break waist tray out and securing it in place, Smartphone’s are on the tray charged up for the next round of action that has been burning your fingers, because you had to work before… coffee is in the cup and ciggi in the mouth…. Sort of like those old black and white movies….. Anticipation is mounting, the Smartphone is blinking and you are so excited that you are winning the game you are playing, you are lost in another world no longer at work, but sunk deep within the realms of the game, coffee forgotten ashes falling from your ciggi into the coffee that is on your waist tray…. No one notices… you take a sip of your coffee and think to yourself “who made this S…..?” But who cares the screen is blinking things are happening the Smartphone has taken hold of your senses and you forget the world around you because you want power and fame that the game gives you, and not the desk job that you are doing!

Through all this action and excitement your ciggi has burnt down to the filter and you stand there with just the filter in your mouth, and your Smartphone in your hand and you wanting to drink that beloved cup of coffee, but NO…… the coffee break time is over and now you have to go back to your desk and wonder and wait until the next break comes where you can dive again into the world of adventure, and ciggi’s and coffee…

The boss comes along and says „Coffee break over…. Everyone back to work now!”

That’s life in the office…..

I’m rich or maybe not?

I have been receiving emails the past couple of days, okay actually the last week too about how much money some nice person wants to give me….. I mean WOW…. A billion dollars is a lot of money and it could be mine if I just send them my bank account info and $7,000.00 …. I guess that is a small price to pay for sooooo much money, but why me??? I don’t know those folks and out of nowhere I am getting emails offering me that kind of cash….

Somehow I don’t see it being an honest offer, but then there are the other emails offering me ways to spend my money….. Do they know that I was offered a billion dollars??? And besides that I could get even richer if I watch a video about how a grandmother became a millionaire overnight….. Now that is something….. Go to sleep wake-up the next morning and “Bingo” rich!!! I bet the elderly women won the money playing bingo, but they don’t want to tell me…… Bingo parlor here I come!!!

To be really honest, I am not a bingo playing person, so I guess I will have to watch another video on how to make a fortune, and then spend it on some great offers that is sent to me……..

Then there was an email that I received yesterday in the subject line they called me a “ jerk”… now that person who wrote that really needs to think and learn how to write, because if I wrote to people and friends with the word “ Jerk” in the subject line….. I know for sure they would not be too happy and would say “Good-bye friendship”. I feel some folks are just plain cheeky and I think they are “jerks” too!

What confused me was the email saying that they were trying to phone me and that I didn’t answer my phone and all I had to do was give them my phone number and they would call me back….. But in the subject line was “we tried to call you and you didn’t answer”….. Somehow a bit contradictory …. I mean really if you know me you know my phone number and that is the point…. I don’t think they know me and are trying to trick me like all the others with the offers of money and so forth.

But reading can be fun…. My question from April this year can be answered now….. I don’t even remember asking a question in an email; but then again my brain isn’t that young anymore and maybe I did ask…. I didn’t recognize the senders name so I guess I never asked anything in April that was important and if it takes so long to answer my question then it wasn’t that important, so forget it!! Press delete…..

And what is so great is the names of the people who send those emails… it is beyond me though; sometimes I think they get their wires crossed themselves… I got 6 emails from the same person, but in different countries.

But my order has been fulfilled and all I have to do is send the money and sooner or more like never I will get my goods that I have never ordered……. Their imagination seems to be getting somewhat limited here.

Read on but don’t click on those wonderful and often to good to be true nonsense…
