Here is a perfect example of emotions gone awry: Due to the horrendous heat of late, our HR person just brought around Italian Ice for everyone in the building. She came over to my cube and I chose my preferred flavor. "What's the occassion?" I asked.
"Hottest day of the year!" She answered and I laughed. Ha ha ha. (What else is there to talk about in an office but the weather? Thank goodness for extremely hot days and blizzards.)
I brought my Ice back to my desk and looked at it. How sweet, I thought. I'm so excited to eat it. And then I burst into tears.
Like I said, emotions gone awry.
