My Personal Struggle with CDO

Rate: 12 Flag

This was intended to be a much longer post but I ....just a minute, something sticky here on the keyboard.

 O.K. Back.I was coming in to work and remembered the front door was unlocked probably so 10 miles  back, door was locked,turn around drive back towards the office, but now I'm late so...adjusting the damn lamp. Just a minute.Janitor staff comes in late and always moves things around.

So...as I was saying, this was intended to be a much longer post explaining my affliction but...damn, should have worn the loafers. I hate these stupid shoelaces. Need to remember not to get the round ones, they just come undone all day long.

The janitor must have knocked the lamp over. It won't come on. I'll move the blinds up and get to this.

This is going to need to be shorter even than I thought.I should be working. Oops. I am working. The phone is ringing.

Back. Hate it when the job interferes.

My affliction, self-diagnosed as it may be, with help of a well thumbed Merck Manual is often described by the medical field as... damn!! the sticky crap was on the phone ! That's how it got on the keyboard. I'll finish, hang on. Handi-wipes in the top drawer.

O.K. last try. I struggle with an affliction known in the medical field as CDO. It's exactly like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

Guess not. The sticky stuff was on the window blind handle so that's how it got on the phone.

Damn. Just remembered the iron might be on. Should have checked when I drove back. I'll call the neighbor with a key.
Brilliant. If I could write this funny I'd write all day long just to crack myself up. Excellent.
Thanks for the laughs. CDO, loved it.

Meant to make you laugh. Glad it worked. See you here on OS later.....
That was good.
That was good.
Perfect!! My friend watched his boss move a chair around in his office. He tried every position in the room and eventually left the chair where it was. Anal is the word, isn't it?
My gosh.
What makes a post be read nearly 4 years after it was posted?

I believe the phrase you are searching for is "moving furniture", but I'm not a doctor.
