On and on...
There's this girl Catherine at work.
(And no this is not gonna be one of those "I really like her but have no way of telling her" posts.)
So anyways, theres this girl Catherine at work. (Yes it is going to one of those "bitch about someone at work" posts.)
And she's not too bright but not DUMB mind you, just slightly below what I'm used to dealing with. And she's really frigin boring. Like she's one of those people where if there was something interesting about her, it'd be the town she was born in ("I was born in JOE, MONTANA! It's a real city!" ). But I have yet to find that interesting tidbit.
And when she starts talking to you, she doesn't stop. So the only way to get away is to hope there is someone else there with you, and then bail out of the conversation before they do. Otherwise, if you're alone with her, you have to slowly start walking to someplace, like the bar to "pick up a drink" for your table, or "go check on" your table, or say "OH JEEZ! LOOK AT ALL THAT FOOD, WE BETTER RUN IT OUT TO THOSE PEOPLE!" And quickly grab something, ANYTHING so as to get away from her.
I have lost count as to how many times I have done this. Not that I ever started counting because the 2nd time she and I talked I knew I had to escape, and I knew it would be like that for a while.

Recently, Hurrican Isabel hit us pretty hard, and alot of Montgomery County, infact alot of Maryland, was out of power for a while. Outback was no different. So the morning after the hurricane, I was at Outback unloading thousands of dollars worth of food into a truck so it wouldn't go bad cuz our walk-in fridge and freezer were dead. We were there from around 12noon till about 6pm. For free. Yes, I know, I'm a good employee. Anyways, at one point me and my buddy Curtis (best guy who works at Outback, no doubt) are sitting takin a break, its around 4pm. And Catherine walks up.
And she talks to the boss and blahblahblah then she comes up to us.
"Hey guys, what's up?" she says.
"hey" Curtis and I answer.
"Whatchya doin?" she asks, even though its plain to see we are sitting. Doing nothing. Did I mention I hate small talk? Anyways...
"Nothin" I say
"Yeah, but we gotta get back to work" Curtis says.
Mind you, at this point we had already loaded half of the food into a UHaul, had taken it to the Carraba's (that had power) up the street, unloaded half of that it into their walk-in fridge, then loaded back up into the Uhaul with plans of putting it into a larger fridge at the local Safeway, then actually drove it back to outback and we were, at this point, waiting for a refrigerated truck to come to us, so we could put EVERYTHING in that.
"You sure Curtis?" I ask, a little confused.
"Yea man, come on."
"Ok sure." I yes-and-ed. So we walk back into the walkin, which is dark and I say "dude, you know we gotta wait for the freezer truck, right?"
And he says "yeah, but anythings better than talkin to Catherine."

I think I'm gonna try to talk more next time she talks to me. Maybe this will overwhelm her.

I just re-read this entry. So just to clarify, I'm not a dick. Cuz if you read my journal, you would want to escape from her too.
