    That's the worst. Thursday night a car alarm was going off ALL FUCKING NIGHT. Downside to the 2nd floor. I had to shut all of the windows and blast the AC to sleep.

    People in my workplace are so sensitive to any change, or something out of the ordinary. They make the biggest deal out of little things. For example, as an experiment I turned my nameplate upside-down. It is freaking them all out. I have people pointing it out to me, asking me who did it and why. I mean, it doesn't affect their job or mine, but they are so concerned. I find this creepy and annoying.

    Also, there is this low file cabinet with like a shelf on top of it, every so often I will put a newspaper that I am finished reading there for somebody to grab. Anybody that walks by stops and looks at it inquisitively, touches it, asks me why it is there, if it is mine and a myraid of other questions regarding the appearance of this news paper. Because people are so weirded out by things I have begun to put other things there: pictures of mickey mouse, action figures, refridgerator magnets, and watch these drone's heads explode trying to solve the mystery.

    Then it hits me, maybe they are doing the same thing to me with the paper towel in the bathroom door? I think not, I just think everybody that I work with is a weirdo.

    People are a mystery.

    If I had a cat I would discuss it with the cat.

    Why do people ask me for my opinion on something, and then vehemently challenge my opinion, if it does not align with the answer they really wanted me to give? If you have already decided STFU. If you truly need help deciding consider that you might run into more answers than simply confirmational ones.

    Goddammit! Before I got to the end of your post I had resolved to post something about the paper towel. You were too self-aware, though.

    That's been my downfall since childhood. I don't understand that these people who question everything are not bothered by the paper towel. These are the very same people who are utterly disgusting in the bathroom. There is a strong correlation between suspect public bathroom behaviors and pointless hyper office awareness.

    If there are any social scientists on the forum, I hope they'd maybe take this up as a research project. Definitely an under-analyzed phenomenon.

    I have awesome econometrics skills. I could definitely help.

    I also note the abundance of minorities in public bathrooms. I have my own ideas for why that is.

    Remember, you want to be the pee-er, not the pee-ee.

    This just reminded me of a true story. I used to have a roommate who was schizophrenic. (For real.) I found out later that I had caused him a great deal of confusion: he couldn't figure out for the life of him who I kept having conversations with. He was pretty sure there was no one else in the apartment and that I wasn't on the phone, but nonetheless I was talking with someone. When my other roommate explained to him that I was talking to my cat, the schizophrenic roommate thought I was pretty strange.
