Today's Mood Is...

So one of the ladies in the office (she is here part time and at the hospital part time) sounds EXACTLY like Urkel, with both nasality and inflection.  And to be perfectly frank, every time she speaks I want to choke her.  But this isn't about me...

Some of you might remember the nice older lady (who will be receiving her nickname in just a moment) who sat next to me when I first started here, who retired a couple of months in.  Well she is back, working part time (and home not working part time).  And she is the exact same as she used to be.  Which led to what happened today...

Urkel has a tendency to rub people the wrong way, both because her voice makes you want to drop kick puppies and because she is one of those people that will IMMEDIATELY go on the defensive if someone tries to tell her that she might be doing something the wrong way.  Whatever is happening, it is not only not her fault, but she also has a ready made excuse for anything that might not be something she can put at someone else's feet.  Like today, when Moms Mabley started to ask her questions because Urkel had given her some halfway completed work.  Moms used to do Urkel's job, so she knows what is needed.  Urkel whined and gave half assed answers, then turned and in a classic display of passive aggressive behavior, loudly mumbled "That's why I can't get any work done.  Everybody TALKING all the time".

Moms didn't like that.  Moms called her out on it.  And now we have a senior citizen street fight about to happen.  Moms and her cane versus Urkel and her briefcase on wheels.  

If you are a gambling man / woman, put your money on Moms.
