In which we check in with Gretawire to see what Van Susteren is chatting about and what her boisterous fan club is saying back.
Take a gander at Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren “Gretawire” blog. She plays host to a community like no other.
In a morning post, Van Susteren ran a comment from one of her readers. Van Susteren had asked readers if their co-workers are “enthusiastic about their jobs.” The comments soon came pouring in.
Here’s the comment the reader left in full:
“I told you before, it is all about coming to work 10 minutes late, starrting [sic] to eat their breakfast at their desk, 3 breaks in the morning, microwave popcorn all day, taking smoke breaks, playing on the computer and iPhone, gossiping about co workers, alienating those that are trying to be productive and positive, and shutting down the computer 20 minutes before your shift ends to use the bathroom or whatever.”
Van Susteren highlighted that comment, urging readers to “run from” anyone who might resemble this reader in the work place.
And with that, another chain of responses from loyal readers. Here are the top six:
6. “Catgirl” finds chicken bones, gay diary:
“There was a person who used my desk at night after I left for the day. Every morning I’d come in and have to wipe off the coffee rings and crumbs. One day I was smelling something funny and I was looking all over for it. Seemed to get worse by the day… 2 or 3 days later I found the source… some chicken bones in a far dark corner under my desk.
“At one time I had temps coming in for the evening. One morning I found WordPerfect files w/strange names. Turns out the guy was keeping a journal of his gay exploits in great detail and presumably forgot to transfer them to a disk. I didn’t read them all… the first couple paragraphs were enough.”
