Didn't think I'd have another story about Tamika, the previously mentioned Cook County worker, this quickly.  Luckily, I do.

Tamika: Ugh (scratching), these desk-mites are really getting to me today!
Me: What?
Tamika: You know, desk-mites.  They crawl all around desks and bite you.
Me: (backing up) What?!
Tamika: Yeah, sometimes people have to go to the doctor because they swell up from the bites.
Me: (about two feet away from her counter) What?!
Tamika: County worker X says she always strips before she gets in her door so she doesn't bring them into her house.
Me: I need a new job.

Seriously.  I need a new job.


  1. I think that's what we used to call "cooties" when I was young.

    Better buy some RID and keep it on hand. And start shaving your head if you don't already.


  2. This is in a county office? Sounds like a bed bug infestation. It's pretty common for them to hide in furniture. Disgusting.
