So I totally don’t want to sound like I’m comparing everything to The Old Job because that would be a nemmie trait BUT at T.O.J. I was at least used to the vagrants.
Now I’m on the upper floor of an expansive building, so while the occasional non-desirable may be around, I didn’t really expect to see in my office.
That being said…
I heard the door-bell (not a doorbell like “ding dong!” but like a bell on the door) but don’t pay too much mind because I think one of the guys ran out to the restroom.
I heard a bag rustling.
I stuck my head around the corner and there was a very-clearly-not-working-here man at my desk.
“Hi There. Can I help you?”
“Uh. Yeah. I see your door says Trent Reznor*. Whatchall do here?”
“[rig-a-ma-roll about what we do]“
“Oh, yeah, the DOT? Um, yeah, so I was trying to get a job there and um, so where do I start that process?”
“I’d suggest starting with the DOT.”
“Uh, yeah. I did that and they, uh, told me to come here.”
“The DOT told you to come here?”
“Ah-ha. Let me see if I can find someone to help you.” I ran back to my bosses office, explained the ‘sitch and looking as confused as I felt, he came out to help.
DOTGuy was gone.
And so was most of the candy out of my dish.
