Just an office

"File these papers"
I. I awake to see... my...boss? I don't recall ever having one, or even a job.
I'm more taken back by this than by the fact their prim and proper haircut sits atop a featureless face, like an upside down egg on top of a mannequin that was sporting a suit.
"File. These. Papers."
As my "Boss" walks away, I look down to find myself in a suit.
I don't recall ever wearing a suit. In fact, I don't recall anything at all. My memories are gone, my tastes gone, my colors gone, my identity gone.
..... who am I?
Who is anyone here?
I look around to try and see the other workers around me.
Nothing but the bizarre.
One cubicle sits what looks like a dolphin with weird arms and a suit. It looks miserable as it lays on its desk, stamping papers.
In fact, the only thing with any color is what looks like a cartoon cat, covered in a bedazzling rainbow of colors down by the water cooler, and even it looks miserable.
I look down at my papers I'm supposed to file.
on the list are thousands of names, all strangely familiar in ways I can't place.
I continue gazing around at my "Coworkers" , the dolphin, the cat, some sort of flabby faced thing. The only thing here that doesn't seem miserable is a mushroom growing out of a zombie, but even then it's hard to tell without a face.
Suddenly, I begin to feel at my face, and find a thin hole in my forehead. Something about this HOLE is.... familiar.....something is WRONG.... somethings... SOMEthing is making me ANGRY.
I'm.. I'm SO ANGRY. it mAKEs mY HEAD HURT. The COIN SLOT in My HeAD HURTS....
I NEED TO SEE MY "BOSSMAN"
...I STORM OUT OF MY OFFICE, SMASHING THE DOLPHIN'S DESK WITH MY FIST, CAUSING IT TO SQUEAL IN DELIGHT.
I THROW ONE OF THE WATER KEGS OVER TO THE CAT, WASHING AWAY ITS COLOR.
I STOMP MY WAY INTO THE ELEVATOR AS A FULL ON RIOT ERUPTS ON THE FLOOR.
EVERYONE IS ROARING TO LIFE AND GOING INTO A FULL FRENZY AGAINST EVERYTHING AND EACH OTHER.
I STORM MY WAY UP TO MY BOSSMAN, THE PUNK NOW SHAKIN' IN HIS BOOTS.
"I NEED SOME CHANGE"
