Lately, I have been having problems with my co-worker. She claims her never-ending nap is work, she constantly follows me around and asks me to prepare her food, and she has been known to lay across whatever I am working on. Any effort on my part to get her to move is met with a slow blink.
If anyone wonders why I don’t report her to management, it’s because she is management. At least, in her own eyes.
She does have her good points. She is generally quiet unless she is singing an aria of her own composition. She attacks inanimate objects that are planning to come to life and revolt. She is kind enough to offer to do the dishes on a nightly basis. Not wanting praise for her work, she attempts to do this in secret and is always annoyed when caught.
Her favorite Bible story is the one about the persistent widow and the unjust judge. She enacts it every night when I refuse to feed her the first time she asks.
Okay, so I should probably mention that my co-worker is not exactly human. In fact, she is mostly feline. When you work from home, co-workers are in short supply.
I will say that my Boss is far more helpful than my cat co-worker. Although I must confess that living up to His work ethic can be daunting. After all, He created an entire world in just seven days.
Including very lazy cats who think that the rest of the world is their staff.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10
What’s the kindest thing a co-worker has ever done for you?
