About 2 months ago I left some chocolate out on my desk. It was really good chocolate, and I was really looking forward to eating it. And then I came in one morning and it was gone. GONE I tell you. So I have to assume that one of the cleaning people took it. The other option, of course, is that I ate it and forgot about it, but I don’t want to think about that option.
So I have now stacked 10 quarters in 2 stacks on my desk, and I am going to see if they disappear. So far, they are still there. I just realized, though, that this is probably a really dumb test, because they are much less likely to steal quarters than chocolate. I’m going to keep it going, though, until I need those quarters for something else, like candy.
This brings up a bigger problem as well. Whenever they come clean my office, things get rearranged in odd manners. Like the settings on my chair are changed. Such as the “lean back” setting. And the routing of my mouse cable. WTF? What kind of crazed little elves clean our offices here?
I guess it is better than nothing, but I would appreciate a little bit of integrity in the “desk cleaning” arena.
