Homeless Man’s Brother: DOTGuy

18 09 2008

So I totally don’t want to sound like I’m comparing everything to The Old Job because that would be a nemmie trait BUT at T.O.J. I was at least used to the vagrants.
Now I’m on the upper floor of an expansive building, so while the occasional non-desirable may be around, I didn’t really expect to see in my office.
That being said…

I heard the door-bell (not a doorbell like “ding dong!” but like a bell on the door) but don’t pay too much mind because I think one of the guys ran out to the restroom.
I heard a bag rustling.
I stuck my head around the corner and there was a very-clearly-not-working-here man at my desk.
“Hi There.  Can I help you?”
“Uh.  Yeah.  I see your door says Trent Reznor*.  Whatchall do here?”
“[rig-a-ma-roll about what we do]”
“Oh, yeah, the DOT?  Um, yeah, so I was trying to get a job there and um, so where do I start that process?”
“I’d suggest starting with the DOT.”
“Uh, yeah.  I did that and they, uh, told me to come here.”
“The DOT told you to come here?”
“Ah-ha.  Let me see if I can find someone to help you.”  I ran back to my bosses office, explained the ‘sitch and looking as confused as I felt, he came out to help.
DOTGuy was gone.

And so was most of the candy out of my dish.

SB Sez: I totally don’t do unwrapped candy. Ew. I have three pieces left from my bag… I’d say they went over well 🙂 Wow, camping, anniversaries, blond hair, it’s amazing what we have in common!
