Tomorrow is my birthday, but I took it as a vacation day.
It's departmental tradition that people get their cubicle decorated on their birthday. Yesterday my co-workers gave me a cool see-through balloon (above), and a purple orchid I'm keeping at work so it gets some sun, and we had cake:
And I thought that was a very nice way to celebrate a co-worker's birthday, and was grateful they remembered.
Then today, the two people who are covering my work while I'm on vacation next week insisted we have a meeting to finish the knowledge transfer right before lunch.
It's okay, I said. You know I'm going to send you a detailed e-mail with all the info. Don't I always? And we can meet in the afternoon. It's all cool. I just want to get something done so the person I'm sending it to isn't waiting on me.
Nyuh uh, they said. This time works best for us.
So I went to a meeting room and showed them what state all my documentation for all of my CRs was in, and when I came back to my desk it looked like this:
I got yarn bombed. With acrylic.
And sure it's all lovely and fun and colourful and birthday-ish, but it's a bombing.
And you know what that means.
Yarny retaliation is on the way.
