What’s Hard, White, and Makes Me Look Rediculous?

A few weeks ago I moved into a new office. It is shiny, and I got to buy an office chair. I felt like such a pimp. An office supply pimp.

My main hoe. She glistens.

With new offices comes new responsibilities. It also comes with a little bit of celebratory seven layer dip that I may have eaten half of before bringing to the office. While we have enough dip to last us until next Cinco de Mayo, what we don’t have is a copy machine. I need to make copies. I am a big deal. Plus, copies are important, vital to business, and something about the bottom line.

In order to make copies I have to venture across a street to my company’s original building. I could probably walk. I certainly could drive my car. But, that’s not how we new-office-dwellers roll. This is how we roll:

golf cart

Did you know that golf cart is not actually spelled golf kart? I didn’t.

All of this is wonderful news, right? Yes, but let me get to the point. In order to crash drive into the main building with this pimpmobile, you have to drive through an area that requires that safety glasses and a hard hat be worn.

If you have read Why I Am Here, you are getting an A+. I am not sure on what, but it’s an honor, okay? If you read it, you would also know that I don’t own a hard hat. “Sadly”.Β Today, that has changed. Today, I must edit every bio I have ever released into the wild of the internet (because they are all the same). Today, I am legit.

It’s true, it is.

I finally have my very own hard hat. It sits way too high off the top of my head. It is boring and white. The glasses get caught in my hair, and the sticker was removed (something about sexual harassment) leaving a huge sticky spot. But, it is mine. All damn mine.

Not like I really needed a hard hat with such an intimidating face.

Oh, and I am not really going to edit my about page, however, because irony is in. So there.

  1. If I had a nickel for every time a women told me she was hard for me I could afford a lawyer to handle the tranny suing me (its a long story )

  2. Wow… if my office let me drive a golf cart around (or even one of those tiny little battery-operated plastic vehicles they let little kids drive), I’m not sure I’d want to leave. And damn you for mentioned 7-layer dip. Must go. Need to scour refrigerator for ingredients….

  3. Becca, do not give into the system. Fight the system! Free your fly! HF

  4. One day I hope to have that status symbol of having truly made it: the golf cart. Heck, I’d be happy with a broken skateboard.

  5. I love the sticker. I woulda kept the sticker

  6. Becca,
    I read your “I’m Hard For You” and I laughed so hard. That woman I lived with looked at me funny… But I owned it. Like you owned this post.
    Le Clown

  7. Nice lid, Becca!
    And chair… And wheels…
    The first hotel I worked at was located on a huge property with multiple buildings so we had to use golf carts too; they rule, don’t they?

  8. You are really moving on up! πŸ™‚

  9. That’s it. I am looking for a job that lets me wear a hard hat everyday. Any jobs that do not will immediately be declined.
    Can’t believe you don’t have that sticker anymore

  10. Sounds like you need to grab the golf kart and take HR out for a night on the town and some fresh dip to lighten them up a bit.
    The sticker should have stayed.

  11. Hard hats and golf karts? I want your job.

  12. Damn, with your hard hat and wheels… I’m crushing girl, I’m crushing hard. You single?

  13. Oh hell yes. I was a wee bit disappointed to find I would not need a hard hat at my last gig even on job sites. I had an entire outfit planned around it. Heh.

  14. I don’t own a hardhat. You’ve passed me in the cool meter.


  15. Digging the hat and specs. I had to wear those once, then I moved back to where cowboy boots and chaps help more.

  16. Oh, miss Becca, that hat looks absolutely fabulous on you! I bet it’s so comfortable to wear, too. I’d say you’re in charge.

  17. i will never be “tough” enough to have a job at which i need a hard hat.

  18. You’ve inspired me to wear a hard hat to work. It may not be the quintessential writer/editor garb but now that I think of it, the fanny pack and cowboy boots I show up to work in probably aren’t either…

  19. I’m jealous! Love that.

    I own a hard hat and some super cool eyewear, but I NEVER get to wear them at work. Sadsies!

  20. Oh my god, baaaaaaad aasssssssssss.

  21. Actually, Becca, I hope you don’t mind me saying, but you look like you are undercover in those dark glasses and hard hat.

  22. You look very official in your hard hat.
