the apparent problem

the desk i share with 4 other receptionists had a twinge of a sour rotten smell eminating around it last week. my first instinct was to smell my hands, then my feet. my armpits, my clothes, and my croth/butt area. all clear. it was not me. i sniffed and i sniffed, trying to find the source. i stuck my head in the garbage. nothing. i put my face against the carpet and took a whiff, nothing. i smelled the mouse, the keyboard, the phone, the printer, even the paper shredder. all good.

WTF?!

i figured it was probably something to do with the new carpet installation that was going on in the other room. but today i came into work, and the smell is much more powerful. and now i think someone is playing a dirty trick on me.



the ol' PUT A ROTTEN FISH INSIDE MY DESK SOMEWHERE WHERE I CAN'T FIND IT TRICK. i'll get to the bottom of this.

  1. Once, while working for the state, we were all going to get new desks, chairs, shelves, etc. I didn't like the sound of it. Faux leather, yadda. Then I heard of this place the state had with all the old furniture. I went over and picked out an awesome late '60s office ensemble. Primo shape. No apparant wear. Blast from the past. Got it delivered, set up, sat down, woooooffff! Reak! The foam in the seat released 25 year old farts. Put thy nose to the seat cushion dear girl. Steel yourself away for what you are likely to find. Good luck!
