Think of it this way, eureka: would you really want to socialize with people who can have a decorating emergency?

Yeah, you deserve better friends than those assholes, seriously. Doesn't make that shit more pleasant to live through, but I'm glad you're feeling a bit better, at least.

What Samsally and Bitflipper said. These people sound like shitheads.

Who has a bridal shower at work, then pulls people who are working away from their jobs to decorate? You know what that would get you anywhere else? Fired.

"Sorry, I should be watching that guy having a heart attack, but there's a decorating emergency downstairs!"

Self-centered people. UGH.

HEY EURE I'M GOING TO SEE YOU SOON. My car is a decorating emergency right now, though, so I'm gonna take the day off to spruce it up first.

My co-teacher got permission from the program director as long as I was okay with it. She wasn't paid to do it, but still who wouldn't want to get off work an hour early for a decorating emergency. That's okay, the next time I think of some crazy reason to leave work early I will.

Can't wait to see ya, Dogen! I fully expect there to be a new pine tree air freshener hanging from the mirror.

jeez, i thought 'bridzilla' was just a silly reality show concept. apparently it is not only real, but catching.

be glad you didn't go, eure, you might have gotten infected! now you can stick with doing actual interesting stuff, like teaching kids. (although now i am curious about what would have happened if someone did something _really_ serious, like suggest a change in one of the games.)

so do people just sort of assume that no sound escapes their office, even when they leave the door open?

it's the only reason i can think for the fact that my neighbor has been listening to some sort of instructional thing all freaking day without using anything like headphones. or even closing her door. (closing mine doesn't actually help).

I've already been a bride, so I know it can be stressful and invitation stuff can be hard. However, when I had my bridal shower at work ummm everyone who worked there was invited. I'm still going to her wedding, though, because my first cousin has been her Mom's live in boyfriend for years and I'm taking my Aunt to the wedding.

I like that Dogen's job is too "watch people have heart attacks".

You're not meant to do that Dogen.

We are quite fond of parties here at the hospital. We have one about every two weeks for different reasons. Bridal shower, baby shower, birthdays, etc. Comes with cake and decorations.

Just tell them there's been a decorating emergency at home and it is preventing your house from looking fabulous.

As far as I know a lack of fabulous is a medical emergency somewhere along the lines of a burst appendix.
