Shuffle, Shuffle, Step- Ball-Change

Working in a remote quiet corner of the office, I have developed the uncanny ability to know who is approaching by the sound of their gait. It’s a gift, what can I tell you.

We have the following:

ADD Stride: Very quick paces, determined to get from point A to B in the most expeditious way possible. Unfortunately this one cannot simply get the task done without sticking their nose into everyone’s business along the way.

Not a Care in the World Stride: Very deliberate even stride. Never waivers, ever.

The Shuffling Seasonal Stride: Very typical of someone who could care less about being here, just please let the clock tick 5 already. The gait is similar to a child who is dragging right before a tantrum erupts. You know, long shuffling steps. Just listening to it exhausts me.

Clickity-Clack of the Female Drug Reps: Hey did you know that Manolo Blahnik’s and Jimmy Choo’s make entirely different clickity clacks? Neither did I, nor did I care. But for those of you who need this type of information, you are most welcome.

Obviously, number crunching has numbed my brain. Although my sense of humor remains intact.

You missed the halting, non-rhythmic stride...a sure sign of a long lunch down the Pig & Whistle.

LOL - everyone here in the office always says they can hear me coming. I'm five foot nuthin so I wear heels daily (and in my defense I am the only woman here)

Dave: You are correct. I am going tot e-mail you my boss' number and you can ask for me, okay?

HI: It depends on the day but I am pretty sure I've heard those footstpes as well.

Miss Britt: We will not hold that against you at all!

I'm just sayin

Wicked H said...

Dave: Very good point. Never mind then......

Yes you forgot that horrible flapping, slapping of the flip flop and the ones that wear shoes that squeak like castrati.

At least you hear them coming. People sneak up on me all the time and scare the shit out of me. I turn around and they are just...there.

Cube: Flip flops makes me twitch, I have developed a tic. I am seeking WC benefits.....

HFS: One of our Docs is stealth but he isn't too nosey.
