So, for just one minute, allow me to share how selfish I can be. I came into work about 20 minutes late, and when I arrived, my intern was already here playing his music..which is well within his right to do..I guess. But he has been here a week and a half, and not once has he played his music, usually because I am playing mine..very selfishly. So when I arrived, and he was playing some wack ass music, I immediately got a little perturbed..not angry, just annoyed. He was playing some guy named J. Holiday, and I was not at all impressed. But rather than asking him to turn off this filth, I just asked him what he was listening to, and he told me who it was. He then asked me if I liked it, and I said hells no. And then there was an awkward silence..he let the song play until it ended, and then he went to turn off his music. I then checked my voicemail, cued up my Windows Media, and promptly put on my music. No words were spoken, no questions were asked, I just commandeered the office music selections. Is it selfish? without question. But he's the intern, I'm the regular employee. He's the student, I'm the teacher, he's Jazzy Jeff, I'm Will Smith, and finally he's any scrub on the Cavaliers, and I'm Lebron, which means unless headphones are secured tightly in your ear, you gets no control of the music, I do. To quote a line from a early 90s gangster rap song..Motherfucker I'm Dre!

*read this whole entry in a Samuel Jackson voice*

And now I'll post an inspirational song, as my petition for entry into heaven

Ok that is something I would do in my head, but not in person. You have to take him a bagel tomorrow or something.
