Here we have the "reception room" in the front office.
The candle burning sets a certain ambiance for the employee.
Below is a photo of the employee break room and front & center is the workplace bulletin board. There are some important "memos" posted right now!
Next we have my cubicle. What's that? What's up with the big blue thing on the "task" chair? Well, that's just a nice heating pad, furnished by the management to make the employee more comfortable. What with all the reading, the coloring, the phoning, the television watching, I must have this, and the boss doesn't want any complaints, I'm sure.
Here we have the employee displaying the business casual attire.
And below, said employee is displaying the formal work clothing. You never know when an important client may show up at the door.
What is this? Why it appears to be the front window of the office with the shade open only 1/2 way. (The photography isn't great, but you get the idea).
And now the same window has the shade opened all the way. Hmmm, I wonder why? Well, possibly because the employee is expecting a home appraiser and wanted everything to look bright! (You know, the new low mortgage rates)! This is the last time the employee will lower the shades this far. Why?
Well, maybe the employee was in the "breakroom" sock dancing to her "I-potch" (the grandson calls her I-pod, the I-potch). It was a fine mix of rock, country, classical, you name it. We have a full complement of fine music here at the office. Maybe she was doing that, and MAYBE she won't admit it (er, maybe she wasn't)!
This is the dress down attire that said employee -may- have been wearing while sock dancing/sliding to Aretha Franklin while the breakroom was being straightened. Yep. The shade was all the way open.
The mailman at this place knows me wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy more than he wants to. (At least my hair wasn't sticking straight up today, but there is the factor of the bathrobe (um, overcoat) missing from the situation. When you're standing on the porch (office entrance), you have full view all the way through to the "breakroom".
Which is why the new office policy must be instituted: The shades shall remain at 1/2 mast (open with only the top 1/2 or even one third of the window showing), or completely closed when employee isn't dressed in at least the business casual mode!
Oh calm down, I've been telling myself! At least I wasn't holding a big spoon pretending it was a microphone and singing. (Just singing, okay)?!
What was the song, you ask? A bit nosy I'd say. But, if you must know, it was "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" what else would be more fitting? (And uh, there's really no reason to mention this to "the boss" alrighty)?
