Our office has been in the process of remodeling for the past few months. This week it was my turn to get moved so that my office can be redone. Today (Friday) was designated as moving day, so after Monday and Tuesday (my busiest production days), I dedicated myself to packing up for the move out of my private office to share space in what will become a conference room. That and making sure I can fill the sports section next week.
Much of what I was sorting through in the office was left in my desk or on my bookshelf by my predecessors. I did no small amount of throwing things away.
At any rate, I left around noon to check out a call on the scanner then have lunch. I was finishing my packing but not yet done.
When I returned an hour and half later, I walked into a barren office. A motivated coworker had gone ahead and moved everything but my computer out of the office while I was gone. It wasn't a big deal to me, but it was a little shocking to come back to an office that was missing its desk and furniture, with the trim on the walls already dismantled.
Now I'm more or less settled into my new space. It'll be nice as a temporary setup. The conference room was the last room to be finished in the remodeling project, so it's got new carpet, new trim, and fresh paint.Posted by JRC at March 18, 2005 10:24 PM | TrackBack
