Tenacious

“You are like a bad penny that won’t go away.”

This is what one of the Docs I work with said to me recently. You see since I was transferred to my latest location nine months ago, I have been coveting the corner office with windows. You can’t blame me. I left a corner office with a view and ended up in an interior spot much smaller and with absolutely no radio reception.

I’ll admit it was bugging me.

Recently the corner office became available and I have carefully been campaigning for it. The reasons for not letting me have the office never really added up for me. A simple no would have ended my quest.

While on vacation where I purge all bad things, I had decided to let go of the coveted corner office. It wasn’t worth it. I was getting used to not being able to hear the news and traffic reports scattered amongst my classic rock. The IT dept put a kibosh on all streaming capabilities long ago and no, satellite radio didn’t function in my office either.

Tuesday, I was told that the decision came down and I could have the office. The Doc who made the comment praised me for my tenaciousness. Why thank you!

A room with a view and no evidence of the Troll. I can die happy now.

You are blessed to have both a nice office and a window.

They like to have us not distracted by things like weather and sunlight and radio waves here.

Maybe you should be lobbying if you have such mad skillz? Or a Jedi at least with those mind trix.

Hmm... I can hear a life lesson coming through here "let it go and it will come to you" or some airy-fairy crap like that.

So...

I am OFFICIALLY letting go of my plan to win the Lottery?

Ya hear that God? I'm LETTING GO!

Oh. And congratulations on the office. :-)

t2ed: Let me see what I can do for you. Which office are you coveting?

Miss Britt: Hey, if the lottery thing works, let me know.

Too bad my chosen (or not so chosen) field of being a lab rat doesn't allow for corner offices with windows. You can't GET any more interior than MY workspace....LOL.

Glad you got it though. "Bugging" you was putting it mildly. LOL

HFS: You are right, bugging does not even cover it. But I did prevail in the end....until I have to move again. I promise to enjoy it while it's mine.

Wicked: BIL once said I was like a pitbull, I just wouldn't let (it) go....maybe it's a genetic thing :)
