Admin Speak

Is there some kind of rule that says that all admins may communicate only in baby talk? It's not enough that the admin behind me talks to her boss, everyone who stops by her desk and everyone she talks to on the phone in baby talk ("Hewo! Could you do something for meeeeeeeeee? My boss? She wants to book a conference room at your hotel? Hewp me pweeeeeese!"), but when she communicates with other admins, I'm practically awash in dribble.

Yes, this is the same company where, for Halloween, all the admins dressed up in black stretch pants and cats' ears and tails.

The vomit does not stop.

Worse. She fixes you with one of those wide, vacant stares that's normally paired with a vapid smile. Bear in mind, this woman is in her mid-50s and has the general appearance of a swollen pinniped.

Eva (the receptionist here) is cute enough to get away with obvious cuteness, and when you talk to her, you never get the sense that she's an airhead.
