Piccu's Seinfeld Moment of the Day: The Peanuts

I had a Seinfeld moment today. Everyday I bring a bottle of water and some sort of snack to eat about 10 in the morning. For the last couple of weeks it has been a bag of peanuts, the 3 for a dollar kind. It is pretty good and is better than eating a Twinkie. Today, I once again brought a bottle of water and a bag of peanuts. I had to go out into the field today, so I gathered my equipment and my water and decided to leave my nuts, I said nuts, because I would not be gone that long and I would eat them when I returned. I go out and a couple of hours later I am back in my office ready to have a snack. My nuts have disappeared.

As some of you may or may not know, my office is in the OC court house and has been undergoing some renovations. Today there were two workers putting ceiling tiles up in my office and that is when I ducked out. I can only assume, and rightfully so, that one of these two dudes stole my nuts. I have learned from Seinfeld and George Costanza to not approach who you think may be the guilty party. These guys know stuff about construction and electricity. I could come in one day be electrocuted by some “faulty” wiring.

I just thought that this was insane. We have vending machines in the building and you can get practically the same bag of nuts for 50 cents. I guess whoever it was that stole them didn’t have 50 cents. So there you have it, my Seinfeld moment of the week.

Want me to come down there and kick some construction-worker butt? I can pretend to be some 'crazy broad' they slept w/ and am looking for child support! That could be my story for opening a can of whoop-ass on them. And you wouldn't have to worry about any faulty wiring ontheir end.

It is amazing what people in an office will do, and think they can get away with it. We had a VERY simular situation here, but it involved yogurt.

In the words of another Seinfeld character: "No nuts for you!"

I think I will be fine. I will just settle for everything getting back to normal around here. Personally I think it is hilarious, next time I will just remember to bring an extra bag.

I have my very own Nut Nazi running around here.
