We're moving offices today at work. We're actually moving to another building here on base. You don't realize just how dirty, grimy and dusty your working area is until it's completely upheaved. Ugh.
I went over to check out my new digs this morning. Not too shabby. I don't necessarily enjoy some of the people I'm sharing a room with, but they're far enough away that I don't have to look at them if I choose not to. Which isn't such a bad thing. And, I have a window - which is very nice. I'll actually be facing it, as I always have my PC facing so that my back is never exposed; while I'm working, I prefer to face the door. People have a tendency to sneak up on you, and I get very engrossed in what I'm doing, so I tend to tune out everything around me. Which makes for great practical jokes on me! So, I try to avoid this at all costs because while others think "look how funny it is to see Rebecca shriek" - I don't find it all that funny. Okay, maybe a little funny! But I work with so many pranksters, I'm just not taking the risk!
So I'm all packed up short of my PC and keyboard - and will be moving in on Monday morning. Complete with rubber gloves and favorite cleaning products in hand; it's a dirty, dirty place they've left me.
Have you ever noticed how dirty the people are that you work with? I cringe to think of how some people must keep their houses!!!!
