Loud Ladies

There is a woman on the other side of the office exclaiming things really loudly.  I just heard an “Oh, my lord!” and an “Oh, my gosh!”  I can’t think of many reasons why someone would exclaim something that loudly in a quiet office, so that people on the complete other side can hear you clearly.  Perhaps she won the lottery.  Or is on fire.  In either case, I still can’t justify making these sorts of exclamations for nearly ten minutes.

Well, she’s not on fire.  A loud peal of laughter just echoed throughout the floor.  I think it comes down to this woman is too egocentric to realize / care that her volume is not appreciated by the other workers surrounding her.

Perhaps I should start acting like this woman–she does seem pretty happy, after all.

[Phone rings.] Teri: HELLO!!
Mr. W: Holy crap you’re hurting my ears….how is your day going?
Teri: OH MY LORD!!  MY DAY IS FINE!!  PRETTY QUIET, ACTUALLY!!  HOW ARE YOU?!
Mr. W: Quiet, huh?  Somehow I doubt that.
Teri: [ANNOYING PEAL OF LAUGHTER!!] Mr. W: [Hangs up.]

What do you think?
