Craziness at the new job

I’ve been in my new position for almost a month now. I have to say that I like what I’m doing – being able to basically concentrate on a primary task and to do it very well makes me happy. It’s developing a J2EE application specific to creating reports for epilepsy patients and to make much of the data queryable for research patients.

So far so good, right?

Well, almost. I have to say that some of the people working around me are nuts. Not in the clinical sense (well, maybe) just in the “I can’t deal with reality” sense.

Take this – I usually eat lunch at my desk so I can keep working and surf or do something quasi-productive. Well, one of my coworkers, every time I bring food up there starts spraying “air freshener” all over the place while I’m eating. Mmmmm, nothing like a little tetrahydropolychlorofluoroperoxide death spray in my sushi.

It gets better, don’t you worry. Look for more installments in the coming weeks.
