Temporary Replacement.

I’m not going to be at work for the next two days (Friday and Monday). During this time, I have to get a temp to replace me. This is always weird for me. What will they do? What can I trust them with? And more importantly, what will they think of me?

Technically, they’ll never meet me. But I like to make them feel welcome and not think I’m a total nutcase (which, undeniably, I am.) Plus, they’re sitting at my desk, which is super personal and weird. And for me, it’s even stranger – because I have one of the loudest desks in the company (rivaled only by one person, I’d say, who once turned his entire desk into a fort!) Every available “wall space” (I don’t have walls) is covered with pictures or something weird.

What can I say? I like to show my personality!

"Pattyria Regina Roni" ... that's my nickname.

In case you're wondering, which I'm sure you are, yes! That is a chair for my phone! And fake flowers in a Diet Coke glass! And a cactus, appropriately named Fern! And a "Date Certificate" given to me by Roberto for my birthday. He has yet to take me up on it. Dick.

The poor temp!
