Coffee, milk, no sugar, please.

Walk through the door, hang up the coat.

Enthusiastic. 

Barley seated, phones are ringing. 

People are running. 

"Did you finish this?"

"It's on your desk" 

"How about that?"

"It's on your desk"

Tension rises,

pressure in my temples. 

Disruption,

why can't you let me work?

I want to work.

Pacing and groaning behind me. 

Annoyance.

Bored, uninteresting.

I think I need another cup of coffee.

Customer satisfaction,

Smile!

I can't wait for the clock to hit 5:00 PM

"Wait! Before you leave can you do this for me?"

Eyes roll, I turn around and smile,

"Of course!"

I love my job,

 doesn't mean I'm not tired.
