No method in her madness, just more madness.

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later: La Mondaine caught the same bus as me into work, and wanted to chat all the way. Luckily I got onto the bus with a book already in hand, and managed to retreat into it after some basic civilities.

Avoiding her once the bus reached our destination wasn't as easy, but in the walk to the office I learnt that she isn't happy not being allowed to run loose on everything yet (partly because the Stress Fiend is a secretive control freak, but largely because none of us have any confidence in her ability not to destroy everything she touches), and that she finds the Stress Fiend incredibly stressful to work with and feels physically ill every time the Stress Fiend erupts into a tirade about a client or a colleague.

That's a lot of time to spend feeling physically ill. A lot of easily avoidable time, when she doesn't actually need the income, so she must really be desperate for a social life to keep coming into this.

Although I wouldn't rule out Mad Cow Disease, either.

You need noise-canceling earphones. :)

I've needed noise-canceling earphones so badly and for so long, it would probably simpler just to go deaf.
