"I guess I’m feeling just a little tired of this" --Keith Urban



The perfect metaphor for my week: a two-foot bird poop on the outside of my office window.

Oh, yes, I measured. With the (lovely two-channel!) dripping, it really does extend for two feet.

That's a window that doesn't open. So, I'll be living with that bird poop until the elements wash it away.

Perfect.

My car has a shit-ton of bird poop on it. The birds don't want me to park there, apparently. They hate me.

Deutlich said...

uhm, that sucks serious bunghole.

now i actually wish for rain

but only enough to wash it away. ;) it is memorial day weekend after all

Don't you just long for the days when offices weren't so hermetically sealed and we could actually open the windows? (And clean off the bird poop if we were do inclined?)

I must say I did gulp loudly after moving into one office (that had windows that opened) to find a bullet hole in one of them. I'm sure that's what it was. Not at all uncommon in Suitland. However, most of the routine violence was not directed toward employees at my agency.

I suppose in these days of austerity no one is paying someone to wash windows. Sounds like a good WPA project...

Shitty.

Think of it as natural art. Come up with a name for it.

Wv: curamato - Here's the name! Get a yellow sticky on the window with the new name now!

Gilahi said...

Take advantage of it. When somebody asks you about that project that you haven't even started on yet, just sort of motion to the window and say, "It's dung". They'll hear what they want to hear.

Liebchen said...

How does it even branch off like that?

Sorry, is that not the point?

LiLu said...

You should probably hang this poster over it...

fiona said...

Ok, maybe I'm daft ( that was rhetorical) but can't you go outside with a mop and water and wash it off?
Or what Lilu said! lol

I'd contact HR or your attorney. You may have a case.

Madame Meow said...

It's kind of artistic, though....

Birds have feelings too.

Kate: Not you, just your car.

Deutlich: It's raining now (post holiday weekend) so I'd say your wish was granted. Thanks!

Barbara: I'll take bird poop over bullets any day of the week.

repiderium.com: In a word.

Mike: *gesturing* I call it curamato...

Gilahi: They always do, don't they?

Liebchen, Madame Meow: As poop goes, it's pretty spectacular.

LiLu: That poster works for any and all occasions.

fiona: It's a rather tall second story window. They don't pay me enough to do that sort of high wire act.

Herb of DC: I'd have to show that the poop was premeditated.

G: Well, sure! This one felt like letting it fly all over my window.
