On Returning to the Workforce

Ten little reminders that I've been off work for six months.

1. I keep typing the date as "2010"
2. Someone else is using my "reserved" mug

4. My data filing system is utterly kaphooft
5. People I already know reintroduce themselves
6. I don't know where they keep the spare teabags
7. My keyboard lacks a familiar layers of grime (and still has most of the letters)
8. People that were at my level are now my superiors
9. The office has a deficit of masticated pens
10. I'm actually enjoying data entry

I'm back.
