When I returned to my desk after lunch, there was a calendar notice in my email in box with the subject "Ergo."

It was the final message in a string of messages that had originated with me asking the IT Helpdesk whether they had a lift for my monitor because it wasn't at the proper height for me.

They had forwarded it to the facilities manager who had forwarded it to the HR intake desk who had forwarded it to a specific HR person who had sent me the calendar notice with the subject "Ergo."

I found it amusing and delighted in the sense of humor displayed by this particular HR person, who I hadn't realized was so sophisticated.

After I accepted the calendar notice, I realized it was for an ergonomic evaluation.
