Or So I Thought

Question: What is worse than a case of the Mondays?



Answer: A case of the Mondays with grape pop all over your clothes, keyboard, desk, walls, chair, monitor, phone, lamp, pens. EVERYTHING! Especially when you are wearing light khakis!

I think I just need to go home now. Already. Finally. Please?

No comment, other than just to say that I'm laughing pretty hard. :)

(and to say I'm sorry and good luck with the stains...)

Did you go home? You misappeared!! Were you shaking the cans again??

Okay, so here's the story.

It's my last week, right? And I've had this can of grape pop since I started the job a year and half ago. So I figured it just seemed right to drink it on my last Monday. Got a cup of ice, tapped the can a few times as normal and popped the top.

I haven't seen that high, long or wide of a pop spray ever. Not ever. It was everywhere. I don't think it will come out of the walls. My keyboard was so gross and sticky. And to top it all off, no one helped me clean it up! OK, one guy helped for like two minutes and then walked away and I was left grumpily with my mess.

Finished any pressing business and drove home as fast as I could to get my pants in the wash. I haven't checked yet to see how they are doing.

Hubby doesn't feel well though so it was good I came home. Course, he's been sleeping the past few hours anyway. But I needed a nap too. And now I have a headache. Bah. Monday's need to go away!

Grape is not a friend of Khaki, for sure. But Grape sure is good. ;)

anne said...

Ewww... poor girl. Grape pop. It could have been worse. You could have snorted some thru your nose? Could have been milk. That would stink it up real good. Or hot coffee all over your lap. Yikes.

See ain't so bad. At least you smell like a yummy grape.

Jean said...

The good thing though...you'll never have to have a case of the Monday's again. Only the beach!!!!

grape pop spillage is the worst.

anne said...

Thanks Maki...you're too sweet!

And can you believe it?! It completely came out of my pants!! I stain-sticked those spots to death and soaked them and they are back to their glorious whiteness!!

Hooray!

james said...

sorry anne...i felt like i was in your way...didn't mean to just walk away and leave you with a big mess to clean..

anne said...

That's ok. I wasn't really mad at you, just grumpy at the whole dumb mess. I owe you a new can of cleaning wipes now too... :)

james said...

don't worry about the wipes...i never use them anyways. Had them since I started in the dept.

heather said...

i hope today is better... still sorry about the whole pop thing.

Andria said...

I'm so sorry you had such a bad day!

Here's to hoping that today's a better one... come to think of it, it almost would have to be wouldn't it? :^P
