Is there a doctor in the house?

July 31, 2012

My team and I at the office will possibly be the silliest group of people to work together in the same room. It’s the conversations in broken German (don’t ask), the funny Borat accents (blame me for exaggerating my non British accent as a joke and it has caught on)… But the top of the pops was when we all became hospital staff… to a plant.

Doris is a money plant that was rescued from another department, she had been over watered and was left at one corner to die. She was brought to the observation room. A couple of days later her limbs were starting to go limp. Dr David was called to diagnose: ‘We need to operate and very soon’.

Becca made us all paper Nurse and Dr hats to match our new functions (no one really comes in our room, but it would’ve been fun to see the look on other people’s faces when seeing 6 or 7 people working at their desks with paper hats with red crosses*) and Doris was moved to the operating room. Surgery was performed with no incidents and some limbs were cut off, to be replanted. Doris was then moved to recovery and her daughters re-potted.

*(except for Nathan, his hat had a big J for Jester on it)

Post operation Doris, convalescing in the sun.

Mine is Luella, Lolita is Becca’s and Bo belongs to Chloe.

You see, I tell no lie – we did have paper hats! (not my best photo but then I look like a dork most of the time anyway). This is what I wore on that day (photographed later that day, when I was back at home). No big close ups as I have been feeling and looking tired.

Cardigan – Mango
Pinafore Dress – ASOS
T-shirt – Primark
Tights – H&M
Shoes – Bershka

This was indeed a funny episode in our office life. It’s the crazy little bits like this that actually prevent us from going real crazy.
Have you got any funny office story to share?

    Interesting proposals and handling of colors and textures.

    Offices need to be fun places otherwise we'd never want to go there. Looks like you have a good work environment. We just had cupcakes because we reached a rather tricky goal.

    I don't think you look dork, I think you look happy!

    it's always great to share some craziness with workmates, specially if there are some hats involved!
    And love your yellow cardi and shoes with black& white, it's so bright and funny!

    Wow, nice doctoring work. And they multiplied too! Interesting to see how the family survives.
    I love that yellow cardigan on you!
    Sounds like you work with a great group. Nothing better than a good laugh during the day.

    Good work! Loving the hat, too! Office work used to bore the pants off me and I was always playing around and being silly. I used to love it when I stood in for the receptionist during her lunch break and answer the phone “(factory name)De-pressings” instead of “(factory name)Pressings” and wait for the caller to notice! x

    I used to work in a shop near a big office building. The lumpy businessmen would walk past our door on their way to lunch. To amuse ourselves we used to imagine them walking to lunch wearing Speedos! Yikes!
