Maybe I am a gold . . .

Just came in to work, the first shift since the Scabies Scare***. The new furniture is in the TV room, but we still had a rollaway bed and a bunch of other shit out of place.

and I couldn't stand it. I'm still irritated, and I have it all put away, everything is back to normal. I even moved the clipboards and stuff back from where curlycutie had them, to see if that would help me feel less uptight about this. I never suspected that I would be like this. I guess, after almost four years here, I'm used to having everything organized.

***for those that aren't my co-workers or haven't been subjected to this story, one of my co-workers believes she has been bitten by scabies or some other scary bug while sleeping on our couch. Friday, our supervisor and her supervisor decided that an infestation really did exist, and proceeded to throw out the furniture and purchase new. As none of the rest of the staff, including myself, have been "bitten" I believe she has just been getting hives or something.

They didn't think to, um, y'know...clean the furniture? Hire an extermanator or something?

Re:
The agency is weird sometimes. They even called the health department and were told how to deal with the infestation. But then they decided to get rid of it, anyway. It was a really expensive leather couch, too (the business team leader is always bitching about how much money they spent on that couch)

For a human service agency, we spend a lot of money on durable goods. Nice office furniture, always the best fax and copy machines. For example, our new copier can also be used as a scanner and network printer, functions that we don't even use (and we've had it for at least three months, so it's not like that haven't had time to set it up).

Re:
It is an odd place. You know, we always talked about how dirty that couch was back in the days when Donald worked there....how we were sure we would get something from sleeping on it. I'm glad they finally got rid of that couch. I hated that thing. Hope you have a peaceful shift.
Love,
R.

it got worse. The cushions needed to be replaced, they were so worn out and flat. I'm glad it's gone. We have a futon now, so it isn't really more comfortable, but at least it isn't scary cold leather.

I had scabies in elementary school, and it was the worst worst thing ever!
