Symptoms to Take Notice of in Children

The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…

How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

I talk about myself a lot. But then again, this is the place to do so. This is MY blog.

On Twitter I am known as DCWorkingMommy. Why? Because I am a mommy who works in Washington, D.C.  Clever, no?

I don’t talk about the specifics of what I do, however I share some of the drama that I sometimes encounter.

  • Driving in DC makes me CRAZY! Trying to avoid all social media until my chill pill kicks in. #yeah #no
  • What kind of working professional never wears shoes at her desk and gives her toes wiggle-room? #thisgirl

There is a particular situation that I encounter on a daily basis in the office that I find too awkward to limit to only 140 characters: Co-worker A visits co-worker B’s cubicle to discuss something. Co-worker A notices co-worker B is on Pinterest.

If you work or have worked in an office setting, you know it is inevitable and almost totally impossible to restrict your use of the internet for work-related purposes ONLY. If the internet was intended to be a tool used for productivity they would have called it something different… like ‘a book.’

Browsing the internet during office hours; you know everybody does it, but it’s awkward getting caught.

Co-worker A pretends not to have noticed the great recipe co-worker B just pinned and pauses a moment to remember what it was that they wanted to talk about. Now all they can think about is Pinterest.

CAPTION: The future of social media looks good!

I imagine our heads are like tiny control centers. There is a large monitor at the front surrounded by computers, filing cabinets at the back, and tiny people running around with the all the information we have in our brains. Should I touch that hot flame? Nope, we have a file on that. Should I eat a piece of cheesecake? The stomach center reports yes.

Our little control center has priorities too that prevent us from doing tasks in an incorrect order; work operations come after Pinterest operations but before Facebook operations.

If you think I have put too much thought into this, you’re probably right.

If you fully agree with me, you are absolutely right!
