short timer

April 11, 2011

The good news?

My company relocated this week to a nicer better building with nicer better facilities.

The bad news? Wednesday is my last day at this company, so my time enjoying these Disneyland type facilities will last 3 days. Party on.

But let’s get to the important stuff. That is, the bathroom. I wandered in this morning, having some business to conduct.

new bathroom

First, yes, you see that right. Someone brought the “Please flush toilet when finished (micturating)” sign from the old office.

Second, we need a couple of “Occupado” signs. You wouldn’t know it until you jerked on those doors, but both stalls are, in fact, occupado. The seats are set back so far that you can’t tell from outside, unless you listen really hard (the tune will come to you at last), that the stalls are occupado.

You can’t just look at the doors, because they both swing OUT, and when at rest, they sit in the closed position.

So you either stop, look, and listen, or you jerk the door. Both are kind of awkward.

Oh, and that door in the back? A shower. One I’ll never get to use.

Also, remember the double-wide from the old ghetto office?

Here’s the new digs:

Which I get to enjoy for three days.

    Your office smells of rich mahogany and leather bound books.

    seems hardly worth all that effort in moving. Oh yea, I forgot, you LOVE moving! Enjoy the move again soon! This makes sense after hearing yesterday. Where ya heading?

    What? No parting pics of the famed kitchen and bathroom from your old place?

    Good luck to you in your new office, and then, well to your newer office.

  4. Jonnie J Says:

    Congrats. We can only hope the new office will offer the same level of entertainment.

  5. stevebpt Says:

    at least the new place is also “old and familiar”.

    Nice office here though. Too bad, looks like a good place to put one’s feet up contemplating the next bike ride/ski run. wait, that was my out loud writing. I meant project.

    Can they hear the camera click while they’re in there?

    wow. looks like jesus is coming into your new office through the window.

    is he the guy they hired to replace you?

    ps – where you going?

    • dug Says:

      yes, they hired jesus to replace me. oddly, nobody knows his start date. except they say it will be on a sunday.

      weird.

    So I bought LZ4 not long after it was released. CD’s were bigger back then. And black. Today, 40 yrs later, I find out that he isn’t saying ‘the TRUTH will come to you at last’. Huh.

  9. KanyonKris Says:

    That floor looks so clean you could eat off it, while doing your business. (throw up a little? at least a gag?)

  10. Jason Says:

    I’m dissapointed – feel like this post should have included some recon pics of the bathroom at the new gig which I’m assuming you scoped out as mandatory criteria before accepting.

  11. Jenn Says:

    I don’t understand why the US hasn’t embraced the European bathroom door locks that show red on the outside of the door if it’s occupado, green if it’s empty. That and cheaper wine might be enough to entice me back home.

    i wouldn’t trust going to work for a company that hasn’t done a proper facebook/blog background check on new employees. we are to assume that they either haven’t done one on you or they know about you and are looking forward to some hilarious hijnks and crude bathroom humor at their expense.

    this’ll be good….for us bystanders.
