remember my stories about the stink in our office's lobby due to the dead mice in the ceiling/radiator/walls? well, in the past two weeks there have been random funky smells around the office, and a few dead mice have been found in radiators in private offices.

guess who's turn it is today?!

i knew something smelled amiss/gross when i walked into my office this morning. periodically i've been walking out into the hall and stepping back in, to see if i was just being crazy - or, horror, if it was perhaps me - but no, the air in the hall smelled different. still bad, but of a different magnitude.

so overhearing two coworkers discussing a smell in our area of the floor, i bounded out of my office, thrilled that others noticed this too, and joined them in a sniffing hunt. (for someone with allergies, i think i make an excellent bloodhound)

upon entering my office, one of my coworkers confirmed my suspicion announcing, "yes. there's something dead in here."

he could've been referring to my spirit.

but more to come when the undertakers get here. oh the excitement!

Ugh - that's just wrong!

In related news, I saved a mouse from a cat the other day. Its probably dead now though.

i'd tell your company to get a new building if I were you. tell them you won't stand for these stinking carcasses no more!!

That is fucking disgusting. I would pitch a bit of a fit about the working conditions. Can you work from home? Or do you just end up "working" from home?

thank you all for the support! i am drafting a petition about the working conditions and hope you don't mind when your names appear on it. you might even be called in as witnesses to the trauma i endured that morning. =]

unfortunately, chuckles, its "working" from home, or else i would try to more often. i don't know how people have the discipline to do it.

Neither do I.
