When I got to work last Thursday, I found that everyone in the cube farm had been moved from where they'd been sitting to new spots. I don't like my new spot. Gah. I almost gagged to death before I could properly disinfect my new home.
I don't know if I've mentioned it here before, but I hate to waste steps. What if my feet have only been allotted a certain number of steps before I die? If I'm doing things around the house, I'll plot out how I can take care of my chores using the least number of steps.
Well, to get to my old desk at work it took 50 steps and that was by taking the most direct route. It takes 42 steps to get to my new desk. This is 30 more steps than it should take. My new desk is actually the closest one to the entrance door but I have to walk around the edge of the cube farm to get to the opening where I can access my desk. I have to walk past my desk before looping around the perimeter of the cube farm before I can sit down. If I could just climb over the little wall by my desk and drop down onto it like a spider monkey, it would only take 12 steps. I am so very tempted to use a chair to climb over the wall but I am also now sitting right underneath a security camera (no more picking my nose after everyone leaves) and I don't want to subject the security guards to the sight of me scrabbling over the wall.
You'd think that I'd be happy that my new desk is 8 steps closer than the old one but I'm not. It makes me crazy that I have to walk past my desk (so close yet so far away!) before I can settle into it.
I know that people are starving in Africa, but this is the shit that bugs me.
