Clean Up Your Cubicles!  
So, my sister works in a pretty cool office. Her team leader has a Barbie on her desk with a sign that says 'Assistant". So my sister brought in her Bilbo standee and put a similar sign on him. Now the most recent addition to their team is looking for the perfect assistant for himself. They often get caught up in geeky conversations at work and after Avengers came out, they had to go to several group lunches just to talk about it. My sister got her team leader to start watching Supernatural and all of them, including their supervisor, swap DVDs of TV shows and movies.

Suffice to say, it's a pretty cool place to work. There are the normal office headaches, of course, but it makes it all better when your coworker pops their head up over your cubicle and asks you who would win in a fight, Iron Man or Thor?

So, recently, the one coworker went on vacation and while he was gone, my sister and her other coworker did this to his cubicle.






My sister a genius!


Her coworkers all actually covered her meetings for her too, so she could take a week off while I was in the hospital. I bought her a gift basket of sweets as a 'thank you' for sitting with me in the ER and coming with me for all the testing, and then I bought a second gift basket for her coworkers as a 'thank you, for covering all her meetings for her. They really came through for us.

That seems like a fun place to work. Oh and I'm finally going to see Days of Future Past tomorrow, I'm looking forward to it. Still a little worried but the mix of good and bad makes me think I'll have fun with it. I'll post a nice long post of my thoughts after.

Yeah, she loves it. Even the tech guys get in on the geeky fun. It's nice to be able to talk about things like The X-Files at wotk and have people right there with you on it all!

Epicness all around!

I mean, what a cool place to work, right? Apparently my sister's coworker liked it so much, he refused to take it down all day and just squeezed in past all the cobwebs! lol

THEY TOTALLY SHOULD! Why can't they?

Oh, speaking of teachers, so my mom was talking to me about 'year round school' the other day and I was all, "Yeah, I support it except of course for how it kills the child care industry, but yes, I like the idea." But then I remembered you and I had an argument about it once and you had made very good points against it and I wanted to present those to my mom and I couldn't remember any of them! What were they again? 8)

You're the smart one. I'm just sitting over here frustrated and dumb. :P

Well, I did lose 600 words of Avengers fic today because apparently I am too dumb to remember how to 'save' things before going to get my chocolate bar.

Oh, noes! :(
dodger_sister: annoyeddodger_sister on June 13th, 2014 01:59 am (UTC)
Very oh noes, but chocolate bars are super serious business!

lol! That is epic! It sounds like a nice place to work, with some really caring people. Your sister is very lucky.

The people at my sister's work are very cool and nice. She will often repeat geeky things I say to them and so I think I am getting a reputation there as a smartmouth nerd, which is cool with me. The guy with the cubicle refused to take the cobwebs down all day, so he is also a good sport too!

My sister loves her job - she basically gets to help people organize their office files and since she loves to organize, it's a great job for her. Plus the geeky coworkers! And the kind of people who find coming to work and finding their cubicle full of cobwebs to be hilarious!

They really did a good job with the prank, didn't they? lol
