Red Flags To A Bull

We completed our office relocation. Of course, we're still covered with cardboard boxes and the smell of fresh paint gets old after inhaling the fumes for 6-7 hours, (although the rush is well worth it!), but all in all things went pretty smoothly. My new office has four windows along one side with a view towards a huge pond with a lot of geese and a few ducks in it. I'm told that if it ever actually gets cold this year, (seriously, it's 10/4 and about 85 out today!), hundreds of geese will hit the pond while heading south. I'm not sure what our office policy is on shooting geese during working hours, but I suppose I could ask.

I'm also not sure what out office policy is on shooting walkers, since we're on the first floor and I'm right alongside the path everyone uses on their lunch breaks. I felt like a fish for awhile, but then I went outside and the glass in my windows is pretty much one-way. You can't see into my office unless you actually have your face up to the glass. Which means its back to working without pants. And yes Eclectic, I still have a solid door.

But the oddest thing is the sign on the door into our section of the office. It's a solid metal door, and obviously you can't see through it. The sign says, "open slowly. one of your co-workers may be on the other side of this door"

And that's not supposed to be a challenge?

Congrats on finalizing the move...

Now what you can do is hide behind the door and spook the people coming in. And tell them... See the sign was RIGHT! :-)

Huh, the window thing sounds like a potential plot for a really bad porn flick featuring a well endowed pornstar.

You probably put the sign there yourself. You know, just to sit inside your office, peer out at the commotiom it causes and giggle a little.

Im glad your pants are back off. I wouldnt recognize you otherwise.

Those windows and that view must have been worth the move.

When I supervised the Intake Unit of the Bureau for Social Services in Louisville (many years ago) my first office was in a basement: if it had had any windows, we could have watched the sewage in the sewers flow by. When we gained status, we moved to half the top floor of Louisville’s Legal Arts Building. My office actually had one wall that was a floor to ceiling window, with a view of the parking garage next door. Yuck.

Your first floor voyeur’s window sounds enticing. Perhaps you should begin a betting pool on which of your co-workers (or you, Limpy) is first to get bashed in the head by that outside door.

Are the coworkers on the other side of the door spying with drinking glasses and stethoscopes? That would be fun.

Why not just put a bullseye on the coworkers and saved the door?

Just wait til some lady goes up to your window and starts fixing her hair and makeup in the reflection. Be sure to keep a camera near by.

I think if you shoot the geese from your office, it may mess with the one-way security glass.

working without pants makes having sex on the desk much easier.

...and a slow opening door makes putting the pants on much less obvious.

I can't wait to hear the stories about what happens with that door.

This ought to be good! ;-)

Keep a ball on your desk so if anyone does stick their nose to the glass you can bean the glass & scare the hell out of them.

You can claim the fumes made you do it. I heard you lawyers will resort to any defense.

If any post 2002 Angels fan has the balls to bust mine, I will set him or her on fire. Do you defend people that do that?

I can't help but wonder if similar conditions set off Oswald. If that is the case, then the Office Manager must have been in on the conspiracy. Beware.

Been there with the horrible "new office fumes." ICK.

So where's this pantsless lawyer window again???
