Boss at work today walks up to my desk and notices my pen that I use for editing in Photoshop.
Boss: "Whoa! Look at the way you hold that pen!"
(note, I currently hold my pen between my pointer and middle fingers, which I started doing a few months ago after a flare in my thumb. And now my pointer finger is a big swollen mess so I can't lean the pen on it so this is the only way to work. anyway...)
Boss: "Ha, it looks like a CLAW the way you're gripping that!!"
Boss: "Ha..you don't seem to like that.." *walks away pleased with his little joke.*
Ugh. Yes. A claw. Great choice of words. Because it's not like I've spent countless restless nights having nightmares about ending up an old woman with twisted claw-like hands. Thanks, boss. He knows I have arthritis too, but it seems he has forgotten. Ignorant ass.
