sometime in the past 24 hours it became "moving day" at the workplace (bye bye office...sad face) and when i came in all my stuff was in a pile on the floor and my desk was gone. this was not a surprise to me as i knew it was coming. i was, however, surprised that my desk was gone because i had not emptied it out yet.
i discovered pretty quick that all the desks were not GONE but had moved on to other spaces, so i went on a hunt to find mine. three offices later i thought i had found it -- but it was already occupied by a new vp. [he is cool and i like him. he and i kept getting each other's voicemails during his first few weeks so we have bonded.] i walked in his door and said "can i check your drawers?" he said that was the weirdest request he'd ever heard, but sure. i explained the situation and he said "i don't know if this is your desk, but i found some jelly beans in one of the drawers."
YES. thank you. my calling card has been left once again.
