Are you wondering what to do when the Canucks piss you off before you have even finished your first cup of coffee?
Here’s what you do, you turn on The Donna’s cover of “Wig Wam Bam” (it’s better than Sweet’s because it contains the words ‘you make me cream in my jeans’ and that’s just some kind of wonderful), and turn it up as loud as you can take it.
Then when the Canuck who has raised your ire approaches don’t take off your headphones, just type furiously like you are in the middle of writing some very, very important marketing propaganda that will make a kajillion dollars. Instead of giving him/her the middle finger, just raise one finger like you cannot possibly be distracted since the creative muse has arrived and you are afraid the magic could be lost if you stopped typing.
Wait until Canuck leaves and then proceed to send IMs to Al, the cutest girl on earth™ bitching about everything. Repeat as often as necessary.
