Green Room - Week 2 - Day 5

The poll went up last night: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1070123.html

So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites!

I only have a few minutes before my ride gets here, so I'll make this short. I'm not sure that I will have even a borrowed computer at work today! Hopefully something ends up working out. IT hasn't managed to get me one in *over a week* of back and forth! Yay for paperwork!

Hope your day goes better than I suspect mine might! :)

Send good thoughts, and a laptop with a docking station...

Yay, bureaucracy! I ran into something similar when I needed someone to come move a bunch of furniture from our office (ancient desks, mostly).

The steps were something like:

1). Get permission from my boss to scrap stuff so my team actually has room to, y'know, work
2). Fill out a form relinquishing a claim to the furniture.
3). Label all the furniture that is to be moved with labels indicating that it is to be moved (MOVE TO BASEMENT STORAGE).
4). Get a call from the building manager saying that the earliest they can possibly move everything is November (this was in August...)
5). Show up after Labor Day Weekend and find all furniture except an ugly filing cabinet is gone.
6). Call to ask what happens to filing cabinet.
7). "Well, you didn't include it in your removal request, so you'll have to fill out another one".
8). Send PDF of original request with arrow pointing to "1 3-drawer filing cabinet, gray".
9). Radio silence.
10). No, seriously, I've contacted them again and again and the filing cabinet is still here; I've since given up and I'm going to start using it as an end table, because fuck it, I guess I'm stuck with it.

I hope your laptop request is more expedient...

That whole process sounds like a nightmare. And also like it's the rule, rather than the exception. :O

This is what happens when you lease office space from a much larger company, I guess! :) The furniture isn't ours, or we would have taken it to Goodwill ourselves. It's their property, so they're responsible for disposing of it, and the whole process is a gigantic headache.

Most of this stuff was old enough that I don't think anyone would want it, either, but we still had to go through it...if anyone wants a banged-up desk that was top of the line in 1988, they can have it!
