I'm down with OCD! Yeah you know me!

You know how I'm always talking crap about the bats (ladies I work with)? I'm always saying how they're off their rockers because they have all these idiosyncrasies that boggle my mind?

Well...

It seems they may be slowly infecting me. I feel the changes are, at the moment, imperceptible but yesterday, when I was getting ready to leave the office, I did what I have done since I discovered Milton has been going through my desk. I clipped together the paperwork I've been working on and strategically placed a bunch of items on top and then took a picture.

I do it everyday and then in the morning, after I verify nothing was touched or ask "WHO THE HELL MOVED MY CHEESE??" if something was, I delete the picture and start working.

I've been doing that for almost a year. Everyday.

I fear there is no turning back.

  1. It's arranged as perfectly as alien crop circles.

  2. You have cheese on your desk? Cheese should be refrigerated. Otherwise, it might go bad, and if eaten can cause OCD.

    A few strategically placed mousetraps would prevent anyone moving your stuff more than once.

  3. They've got you, Bee. Be careful! Ceaseless vigilance required.

  4. Perhaps you should start saving the pictures and then publish a book of them. Make sure each arrangement gets more elaborate.

  5. I hide my pens. They always disappear and then I yell around, *Who Took My Pens* (even if I just hid them in a different spot. So you are totally normal.

  6. Any potential thief might hurt themselves with that pencil and then sue you.

  10. I love that you do this, Bee! Most people would have done it for a couple weeks. Maybe a month. But that you have done it for an entire year shows you're commitment...not that you need committed.

    (i kid, i kid!)(because I swear to you, I would do the very same thing!!)

  11. That picture seems kind of 3-Dish to me. I almost reached in and took your pencil. I didn't because I'd be afraid you'd track me down.

  16. I think your response to having your stuff messed with is unstated. I would have been tempted to try mouse traps.

  17. This reminds me of when someone was taking students' picture money out of teachers' desks. I set up a small envelope with the words "book order money" written on it, but I had put tissue paper and a few pennies inside it and placed a tiny drop of glue in the middle of the envelope so that it did not look completely sealed. Next day someone had opened it! My only regret was not putting a little note saying "smile, you're on candid camera"! :-) I'm happy to say, they did not look through my desk again. How do I know... set up some more little traps! Great minds think a like!
