Anniversary Blog Fest: Rose Maybud


Summertime, and the Office Ain’t Easy

Office Life is Hell – especially in the summertime!

When the weather’s hot and steamy, your thoughts start getting dreamy, and sitting in a cubicle just doesn’t cut it. Somehow, crazy bosses and cranky co-workers just seem crazier and crankier during the summer months.

Have you ever worked in a job that you couldn’t wait to quit? But maybe you couldn’t quit, because…? Well, that’s kind of the problem that the lawyers and staff at Sangazure and Poindextre, LLP, have. Working there is not fun at all.

Our hero, young attorney Alex, is determined to do something about that. He hires a sorcerer—well, a Potions Account Executive—to slip a little something into the office coffee pot, something to make everyone friendlier to each other.

And boy, do they get friendly…after our hero puts Something in the Coffee, everyone in the high-pressure law firm becomes wildly attracted to the first unattached person they see. Good thing Alex is a clever lawyer, because it’s going to take everything he’s got to fix this mess and win back the love of his fiancée, Eileen.

How crazy do things get in your workplace? If you’re brave, share your greatest, nuttiest, most embarrassing office snafu with us all. Inquiring minds want to know!

I don't have any crazy stories but the book sounds like fun reading.

Only weird story I have is the one time, dead of winter, the one guy in the office decided to turn on the air conditioner, the rest of us looked at one another and quickly turned off the air conditioner before it did any damage.

Sounds like great reading. Jobs are often difficult to bear, but we must.

WELL, I'm a librarian and we have a lot of interesting encounters with customers at work. We go through phases when we have patrons who are drunk or high. We also get students asking for very unusual things based upon what they THOUGHT an instructor said. I remember a student not very long ago looking for information on oranges and peaches. It took a long time before we figured out that she was looking for information on Origin of Species by Charles Darwin. SO, any staff goings on are tame compared to our interactions with the public!

Oh, how I'd love to have had a 'Potions Account Executive' when I worked in an office. I'm so glad I managed to escape! Your book sounds hilarious!

Potions Account Executive! Now that's another job I'd like to have. When I was still working, one of my co-worker friends and I decided we would rather be in charge of company party planning. Sounded like a whole lot more fun that what we were doing! Never got the job though. Bummer.

Your book sounds like a really fun read!
