Thank you

I email the words "thank you" to my supervisor and my supervisor emails the words "thank you" back and so I see my supevisor at the grocery-store and say to my supervisor the words "thank you" and my supervisor says "thank you" back and I think about whether or not I should say "thank you" again because maybe it would be awkward to say "thank you" a third time but it's awkward to say nothing and so I say "thank you" again and I cough and cover my mouth and move outside where I say "thank you" to the parking-lot and "thank you" to the lonely gray cars and "thank you" to the interstate-highway but the highway doesn't say "thank you" back

Thinking of signing emails with 'thank you' makes me think of work. Work makes me tired and occasionally think of Oz. Sometimes I imagine myself wearing shiny silver shoes, closing my eyes, saying 'there's no place like home, there's no place like home.' At these times I am magically transported to a small farm in Kansas. And you were there. And you. And you.

I say "thanks" sometimes. Is that unprofessional? Why is this funny and sad?

what is funny & sad?

i don't think "thanks" is unprofessional. i say "thanks" too.

but i also think of myself as being sort of the opposite type of person who should work in a business environment. mostly b/c i have no interest in looking/acting/being professional.
