Where are all the cool co-workers?

It is now 9:09am and the atheist and the hobbit are just getting around to ‘work’. Wait, I take that back, work has not begun as there has been another journey around the cube wall for visitation. I'm waiting to hear 'live long and prosper'. This has gone on since 8:00am.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for shooting the bull with co-workers but I’m also of the belief that I should put in a good 5 hours of work in an 8 hour day. Ok maybe it should be closer to 8. However, these two knuckleheads spend the better part of their day philosophizing on the finer points of manufacturing with tangents in to the cool new collectors edition of Dungeon’s & Dragons that they scored on eBay. Currently they are discussing Warren Buffet, Barack O’Bama and Berkshire Hathaway. Mostly it’s the atheist talking while everyone else has to listen. When he’s not spewing forth his endless Cliff Clavin-esque factoids he’s busy bashing Christianity and how religion is a nice ‘superstition’. Yes he informed me on my first day in this group, that he is an atheist. Great just want I needed. Finally getting a firm grasp on my Christianity and I have to be exposed to this?

Can’t I just set my beliefs aside for 10 seconds while I ‘punch him in his Jack Johnson’?

It’s now 9:22 and no relief from their diarrhea of the mouth.

The kewl workers are here at the '3' of course :) You know normally I would say 'embrace the diversity' but aethiests scare me. You know if you were here at the '3' you'd have your choice of Lebanese, Philimexipino, diabetics, Indian Chiefs, one eyed buggers (oops he's gone isn't he). hehehe

How is it that you've found yourself another Freakville to work at? ha.

I've found you get absolutely nowhere when you argue with an aethiest. Well, unless it's a dyslexic aethiest and believes there is no "DOG." Then you could like show him a real dog and say AHA! Explain THIS!! That would ROCK!

Maybe you should start talking about some really inappropriate itching.
