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.
