Agency X functions on instant messenger. It's pretty awesome. Pretty much I don't have to leave my desk all day. I can be as lazy as I want. Well, unless I want to go yell at someone for not doing their job THEN and only then do I leave my desk.
That's a lie. I don't yell.
Really, instant messaging is nice because sometimes I really don't want to get up and walk across the office to ask one little question. It saves time. It improves efficiency. It does, it really does.
I have one friend in particular that I chat with almost every day. She is one that I cannot respond to for hours and have her still like me. That is the thing about IM, I can only have friends on IM that know that sometimes, when I don't respond that means multi-tasking is not an option. It's very important to have these types of friends. Otherwise, I block you because you bug me too much while I am work.
Anyway, said friend is one of my very good friends and so I tell her all about my life. You know, things that I would never dream about putting on my blog or telling anyone other than her (and a few other choice friends). Recently, we were im'ing back and forth about our dating lives. Innocent enough, but too much for anyone other than her to read.
So you can imagine my surprise when I get to work today and a print out of OUR ENTIRE CONVERSATION is sitting on my desk. Shit. "Here you go office, here are my most personal thoughts. Please read them". I didn't even know I can print out conversations. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN??? Now I begin to wonder, who the freak at my office knows all about my dating life? I am mortified and have decided not to tell details of my life again over something so fickle as instant messenger, ESPECIALLY at work. Lesson learned. Lesson learned the hard way.
