Throwback Thursday - the ghetto characters 30

Today I'm linking up with Ady over at When in Doubt Just add Glitter for Throwback Thursday!

I used to work in an interesting place to say the least.  It seems like all the places I work are dysfunctional and they always are full of fun stories to fill my day or to tell years down the line.  I'd like to introduce you to a few of the crazies people that I encounted in my day to day life working in the ghetto.

Passion of the Christ aka "Passions"- this is not a mean name, but an honest nickname.  POTC loves God - if she were a catholic she would be a nun.  
Since she isn't Catholic and doesn't live in a convent she thought it would be a good idea to work in the ghetto with kids that partook in daily drug use and profanity!  
She only gave religion related gifts (even to those who are not religious), read Guidepost on all of her breaks and I swear has multiple personalities that come out depending on what she is doing and/or saying - see the below video clip, the chicken lady is how she speaks joke.  
Don't get me wrong - she is a nice lady - but she is just a little nutty. 
 She also was frugal to a fault.  She kept Tupperware in her desk at work just in case someone brought food to share.  If this happened it was a mad dash to the kitchen to fill all of her dishes with free food.  Most of the time she took ALL of the food before anyone else got a chance.  Oh yes...she also wore bright red lipstick daily and also sold her own Gospel Voice CD for $12...I was laid off before I got to buy this treasure!

 This is the lady that knew everything about what was going on in the company.  She was the one we go to if we need to know the gossip.  Most of the time it is wrong, but always entertaining!  I wonder if she knew I was getting the ax.

 Where do I start.  iChat was my counterpart at work.  She does (thanks to senority rules) the same job as I did, just with a different group of clients.  She was on the phone CONSTANTLY!  She was on the phone so much and got so many complaints that my boss had to move her desk so people couldn't see her!
 When her cell phone rang she answered it - even if the CEO was speaking with her (really - this happened).  I heard conversations about how she hates her husband, her daughters oozing ear infections and the boils on her bum! Basically iChat never stopped talking!

Little Man
 This is a high up man here at my old POE. Nobody that I associated with at work liked him and there were many people that quit because of him.  He walked around talking at a decibel level that I swear made me more deaf each day.  He is over 50 and thinks he is "street" because of the clients he worked with.  Word on the street is his brother donated a lot of $$$ to the company, so he will be there until the bitter end!

He didn't have a nickname, he just made me smile.  He always seemed a little on edge.  He would walk by my desk and say "Oh Hi" then honestly 30 seconds later he would walk by again and say "Oh Hi" if I was a whole new person.  You never knew what you would get with this one, he is a little coo coo!

There you have it folks - just some of the lovely people I used to encounter on a day to day basis!  I will miss these characters - but hopefully I will find a new POE that is a bit more on the normal side!
Who are some of the characters you have the pleasure working with?
