I woke up to rain,which by natural meteorological extension means a lack of sunshine.
Not a good start to my morning.
I did get a seat on the bus, which is a bonus, but I soon offered it to a woman who needed much more than I did and she seemed very appreciative. I felt like my morning got a bit better.
Then I arrive at work to find my closet..I mean temporary office loaded to the tits with AV equipment. Definitely not a good start to the work day.
Now I'm a calm person. I'm flexible. I have no issue relocating AGAIN if the need requires it, but for Pete and my sake - couldn't someone have given me a head's up last night. Really, it's not like I would fall under the "FYI" category in this situation. A quick note saying..."just so you know, you will not be able to get to your desk without risking injury" would have been good.
And in the old days (approximately 3 months ago), I would have walked away and found somewhere else to sit. And stewed.
But not today. Today, in my nicest HR voice, I asked "is there a reason why all that fuckin' stuff is in my office?" (exact words). And to my surprise, they said.."No, it was a mistake, let us move that for you..."
Now as I sit in my temporary office, my day just got a bit better.
