When I rolled into the station this morning I noticed that our carpet looked like it had been cleaned over the weekend. Plus, it smelled damp and humid. Sure enough, when I got to my work station I noticed garbage pails and everything else that might have been sitting on the floor piled up on every desk in the station. Boxes, baskets, you name it, all piled up everywhere. My desk wasn’t too bad. I moved a couple of garbage pails off and then went to find my chair, which I eventually found in the engineering room.
After that, it was off to the coffee room to get a pot of java brewing. There is no carpet in the coffee room so I expected that room to be in better shape than everywhere else. Wrong! Both the snack machine and the pop machine were pulled away from the wall and unplugged. Worse yet, the same thing happened to my beloved coffee machine! NO! Not on a Monday!
The trouble with that is, once the coffee machine has been unplugged, it takes the water a good 1/2 hour to heat up again after you plug it back in. Great. So, I maneuvered the coffee machine back into place and plugged it in and waited. And waited.
By 4 A.M. I was finally sipping on my first cup of coffee. That’s way too late on a Monday morning!
