I had several great chats with colleagues yesterday -- some about work and some purely social. I really like the people I work with.
I just got an email from a colleague that really made me smile. She and I are working with a student who needs help with test-taking. She's bringing over the student's exams for the semester so that the student and I can go over them. I'm essentially "checking out" the exams from her because her department doesn't release them to students. Here's our email exchange:
Her: When do you want me to drop off/ or when do you want to pick up the exams?
Me: If you feel like getting out, I've assigned myself homework between 10 and 11, so I'll definitely be in my office then. I can also plan to stop by whenever you're free.
Her: We need to talk about 2 things. 1. What do you mean "you assigned yourself homework" ? And 2. Why would you ever do such a thing? I'll bring over her stuff around 10.
She's the same person who turned me onto Cute Overload. It's clearly been a good week at work so far.
