Office Moves

Ok, today I move my office for the second time in two months. We're moving just down the hall on the same floor in the same building.

This is on a campus of 3,000 people (HQ). We are moving 900 people this quarter! Can anyone out there say inefficiency!!!???

This is just a rant to get it off of my chest. Since part of my responsibility here is managing the IT techs, these moves cause us all kinds of headaches. Not to mention my personal inconvenience (and that of all the other people moving around).

So now I sit here, waiting for the movers to move my furniture. I'm not allowed to move anything myself except my laptop (safety rules).

This process of moving almost a third of the campus in three months time reminds me of those kid's puzzles with the numbers 1 through 15 on little plastic tiles, and one blank spot. You know the ones I'm talking about. Shuffle the pieces around until you get it right.

In a typical (for many corporations)showing of poor communication, nobody bothered to tell the higher ups how much this would all cost. Heh.

Ok, I'm done ranting now. It is my journal after all. This might not be a bad place to rant!
