Anyways, on with the good stuff so you all can have your laugh for the day and feel better that you aren't me.
This morning, I got into work to find my time-sheet for the previous work week still laying on my desk. With all the excitement of the last few minutes of a Friday, I must have forgotten to slip it into the HR office. Wasting no time, I grabbed it off my desk and made way to the other side of the building, slipped it in under the door, and turned back to find the VP of the company a few feet away. Now this is THE man to know, he's a real social guy, and he's in charge so getting to know him can get you a long way. Too bad he's an electrical engineer and I can't ever work with him (me being mechanical), so these kinds of run-ins are probably the best way to get noticed. RIGHT.
So of course I try to be as smooth as possible and start making my way back to my cube, getting ready to put a huge smile on my face and greet him. It's all going well and just as he turns and says "Good Morning," the button on my sleeve gets caught in the cube wall I'm passing and two things happen:
- I get yanked backwards
- The cube wall wobbles forward ....and continues....to wobble... for the next ...5.... minutes!!!
Sigh. Fail first thing Monday morning. Not a good sign, people.
Anyways, at least he asked me "Are you ok?" (between chuckles)
Noticed I wanted, and noticed I got.
More to come...I'm sure sometime soon...
