The Rumor Mill!

When things get slow or tedious, or I'm feeling somewhat mischievous, an entertaining distraction is to churn the rumor mill.

In the past, I've started rumors that a North Korean delegation was coming to visit, that snakes were infesting one of the outer buildings, and that a plan was afoot to move the company closer to Seoul despite having just moved out a few short years ago.

The key is to make the rumor believable but doesn't have a direct impact on anyone in particular. For example, I'd never start a rumor that the guy in purchasing is gay. That would be wrong.

So this month I'll just stick with passing around word that a new rest stop is being built in the construction zone a couple of miles up the road. So far people are excited at the possibility of having a new place to eat lunch.

I had heard that people still talked like that. Guess it's true.
