Catsup Is A Stupid Word

Catsup @ Collinsville

It’s late on a Friday night and I’m reading the newspaper comics. I noticed one comic used the word “catsup.” Oh, come on. Catsup? It’s ketchup people. And if you are using the word catsup, do you have to pronounce the “s”?

I thought I would update you on how it’s been going on my second week at my new job.

B. O. R. I. N. G.

I spend all day doing data entry.

Yes, data entry.

This is beyond troubling. I had no clue it would be like this and I’m not sure what to do. In fact, I actually miss customer service.

Things would be a tad better if I had people to talk to, but I sit by the quiet people who wear headphones all day. What the hell is that???

And the only other person near me that I can talk to swears and sounds angry all the time. So, I’m not sure I want to even get near conversing with this person.

On an entirely different note, I’m making pizza right now that smells like hot dogs. Is that as gross as I think it sounds?

    As weird as it sounds, I always kinda thought I would be good at data entry because I’m one of those shy and quiet people.

    Is there room for advancement if you can stick it out long enough?

    I’m with you on the catsup thing – sounds too much like “cat soup”, too.

    I love boring repetitive jobs, though. I had a job in a factory where I sat and stuck a tape to the back of a gasket – I could do about 40/ minute. That’s a lot of gaskets in a day. Loved that job, except for the clique-y, catty women that worked there!
