A weird thing happened at work today… June 14, 2012

I got a weird email from one of the admin people.

Cherish, you need to check your box.  It’s getting full of mail.

This is weird because…well…I didn’t have a box!  When I started working two years ago (my goodness, probably two years ago today), there were no slots for additional boxes.  The person who dealt with the mail said that she would just throw my mail in my husband’s box because she wasn’t sure what else to do with it.  I also was sitting at a workstation in one of the offices and didn’t have my ‘own’ desk.

So now, two years later, I’m apparently in possession of a box.  It turns out that there is a mailbox for the office I’m in, but given my other three officemates have gone on to greener pastures, no one ever checks it…primarily because no one told me it was there.  Also, the person who used to sort the mail left 9 months ago (approximately) and never told anyone just to put my stuff in my husband’s box.

It occurred to me that maybe I should now ask for my own box, but since I’m the only one in that office, I sort of already have it.  The down side is that I don’t want it: the only things in there were sales flyers and catalogs from electronics supply companies.

Interesting that it took 9 months for the box to be full!

It was only about half full…but there were a couple of catalogs in there. Apparently the mail person was wondering if I hadn’t been coming in, which led to the inquiry. :-D
