The last two days have been cold, and I've worn my winter coat. Since we just moved into the office last July, there aren't any coat hangers, so I brought a hanger from work, marked it with my name, and hung my coat on it. At the end of the day I leave the hanger by my desk (where it's very hard to see) just to make sure it doesn't go wandering off.Someone said something about the hanger today, and I said, cheerfully, "Well, there aren't any in the coat closet, so I brought my own."Coat closet? Two people stared at me, and I had to take them over and show them the coat closet. Everyone else has been hanging their jackets on some coat trees. They didn't know we had one. One of them wants to nominate me for a monthly award the company has, and I said I couldn't wait to see the expressions at headquarters when this vote showed up, "I want to nominate Nancy, not because she keeps the kitchen cleaned, or rescues the database when need be, or works til all hours to get a job done, or makes sure that we're all working with the same set of instructions, but because she found the coat closet."This is the office that kept the company afloat financially for eight months when the company was being formed and no one else had work? This is the department that the people in Pittsburgh have been told to imitate?"I nominate Nancy for employee of the month for finding the coat closet." I still can't get over it.Nancysheesh. It's worse than when the dishwasher broke.
