It’s been raining for more than 24 hours now, I think. School AND work have been suspended.
But that doesn’t apply to my office because technically I think we’re on US soil. I don’t mind, really – there are things I need to do and most of the files I need are on my work computer. Sure, there’s this low-level dread at the possibility of being unable to go home. That doesn’t sound like a bad prospect, though, considering that we kind of just came back from an off-site team building activity that involved eating good food and learning that my direct supervisor can give The Flash a run (pun intended) for his money. I’d like to think that many of us are still in a very good mood after that.
Heck, I think this office is generally a good mood place. 🙂 I just finished my third year here, and I’m yet to feel anything close to the desire to quit.
I may be forced to come in under horrible circumstances, but something kind of makes up for the effort I put in. It’s not just the money (even though it helps so very much given the economic issues of this country); it’s being able to do work with and for people that you can still respect after a day and a half of (probably) embarrassing activities.
I wish everyone can feel this way about a job.
