Jack is Going Mad

The people in the office next to mine are playing loud music. I know that it is loud because in spite of the wall separating their office from mine I can almost understand the words and that is the problem.

It is coming through garbled and distorted. It is similar to being forced to listen to the bass from the SUV that is located four cars away from you.

I love music, but this distortion is just noise. It doesn’t have a rhythm or a beat. And although I am trying to ignore it I am finding it to be impossible. I am locked in on it, my radar has it and refuses to let go.

And so I am growing more agitated and irritable. Jack is going mad. Don’t be surprised when you see me go running down the street laughing maniacally arms waving frantically. It is just me.

    “And so I am growing more agitated and irritable.”

    As we say, “Mah Nishtana…”
    (Why should today be any different…?)

    I work in a cube office environment what I find irritating are people that work with their headsets on at full volume. It’s like being in a room full of mosquitoes singing rap music. Then they will leave their desks and forget to shut off the music and the insane mosquitoes are even more audible and annoying.

    One day I am going to wander into the cube next to me with a fly swatter and swat the guys headset (while on his head) and yell “GOTCHA”
