The Brothers Grimm never wrote that fairy tale

November 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Our office building has been taken over by a new management company. They are going to make the landscape prettier and make the building more energy efficient! So they closed up half of the parking lot for worker bees to descend upon the exterior (yep, that was convenient for an entire week). They dug holes and planted plants and trimmed some bushes and laid some pine straw. Except they forgot to trim the one tree that actually hangs over the sidewalk and smacks everyone in the head on a daily basis. At least I know I will now work harder knowing the squirrels have a prettier place to bury their nuts.

They also changed out the back door and put in new locks. Great! For two weeks, we (the Trolls) were locked out of the back door (which is the most direct route to our office in the dungeon) because SOMEONE insisted the old keys would work in the new lock (yep, just shake your head).

Now, they have installed motion sensor lights all down the hallway and in the bathroom on this, the ground floor. So every time I step out of my office, I find myself waving my arms all over (like I’ve just been attacked by a swarm of bees) in order to get the landing strip effect to light up and direct me to the bathroom at the far end of the hall. Where again, I can wave my arms like I just stunk the place up with a mega fart and am waving the stink away in order to get the light to come on; so I’m not peeing in the dark (kinda sounds like a Bruce Springsteen song).

I should also mention that ours is the ONLY office on the ground floor. Everything else is a storage room, break room, mail room or conference room. All of these items are not used on a daily basis (for any length of time) by the people from the upper floors, so they don’t need to be heated and/or air conditioned like the upper floors. It gets a bit chilly down here since heat rises and all…

Moral of the story: Never shake the mitten’d hands of a Troll.

I’m not sayin’… I’m just sayin’…
