I often wonder what an outsider would think of mine and JD’s friendship. We were in the Supermarket at lunch time and she was talking about rude and mean she sometimes is but somehow gets away with it. I said something along the lines of “I’m surprised you’re still my friend after you called my Mum a Triffid”
(So this reference sounds mean but it was meant as a joke. I was telling JD about the remake of The Day of The Triffids, and then I had to try and explain what a Triffid was. Then in the vein of Yo Mamma jokes, she called my Mum a Triffid)
Anyhoo just as I was saying about how JD called my Mum a Triffid, my manager (The Big Cheese) walked past – oh dear lol. It was kinda funny in a cringe worthy way. JD and Me have the tendency to be a little loud and giggly – especially at lunchtime lol. I think it’s because we spend so much time at our respective jobs in our own little bubbles not talking to anyone that come lunchtime we have to chat as fast and as loud as possible lol. It hasn’t been mentioned so I don’t think he heard me lol.
It then got a little more surreal as me and JD queued at the till I changed till because there was no queue and it turned out that I was served just as The Big Cheese had left that till and then when I waited at the end of JD’s till two of my colleagues from my old job had queued behind JD to be served.
On the way back to work we discussed about how we can be one person/version of ourselves at work and then another version outside of work. We were talking about that at Girlies Group the other day. If you are being one version at work and another version of yourself outside of work are you hiding behind a mask?
