Coworker Elaine's boss Joe gets in a little before me and Elaine doesn't get in until about an hour or so later so we have chats - many times about how ridiculous Elaine is.

This morning he told me that he's sure that Elaine is making our student worker Peter too nervous. He's in his mid-20s and he's high-functioning autistic. Super nice guy and I did find it odd that for as detail-oriented as he is, when Elaine gives him something, it comes back incomplete or not done correctly. It doesn't surprise me that Joe thinks that Elaine's over-the-top presence is disturbing him. So Joe's going to have it that any tasks go through him to give to Peter so he's not so frazzled.

Peter doesn't do any work for me (because that would mean I get some relief) but he's in the same suite as me. So unfortunately he is in the vicinity when I'm mad about something and stomping and cussing. But you know how Peter reacts when I'm throwing a fit?

He laughs. Because he knows - like most everyone else - that while I'm stomping around, it's not directed at him and deep down, I'm completely harmless.

Comforting but somehow not fair. LOL

Hopefully it didn't take long for the kitten to get used to big scary hoomins.

It was just so scared. They shouldn't have been egging her on. Then they are going to wonder why the cat is mean. They don't forget crap like this.
