QC's Excellent Adventure

Dear Diary,

This week I thought it would be fun to start telling you about the people that I work with and/or have met during my first month here at [...BEEP...].  So far the only person I have told you about is Mr. X.  While Mr. X is an interesting character I had faith that [...BEEP...] could produce bigger and better freaks.  And I am pleased to report that [...BEEP...] has not let me down.  After all, who wants to work with 100% normal people?

Hang on a second...I'm going to turn on my iPod to set the mood.  This should work for now.

Artist: Eels
Album: Beautiful Freak (1996)
Song: Beautiful Freak

Moving along.  Dear Diary please meet "QC Ted."  Now "Ted" is not really his name, but I'm going to call him Ted because he looks almost exactly like Keanu Reeves who played Ted in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure."  The best part for me is that "QC Ted's" hair is an exact replica from the movie.

"QC Ted" works in Quality Control ("QC") and has been with the company for uhhhhhh...uhhhhhhhh...uhhhhhh...ya almost two years.  No wait...I mean 24 months...wait, but that's...so-o-o-o yah.  Two years.

When I met "QC Ted" we were in the break room and I asked him how long has he been with the company.  His response was the exact same thing I wrote a few lines up.  I thought "QC Ted's" brain was going to explode.  He kept looking up so much I thought his eyes were going to roll into the back of his head.  It seemed like he was looking up as if the answers were written on his forehead to read.

I didn't have the heart (and stamina) to continue the conversation so I said, "I think the Wyld Stallyns rock," and moved on.  When I left I could tell he was trying to figure out what I meant.

Ted LoganShould I be scared that my Employer has placed Ted "Theodore" Logan in Quality Control?  To me, those two are antonyms.
