Officially gone crazy



I went to a meeting this morning and left my desk for about half an hour. When I returned, there was gentleman signing some papers at my desk who walked away as I got there. I noticed that my headset for my phone was on the floor. Strange. So I plopped myself down in my chair.

Why is everything so big??? My monitor looked ginormous, I could barely reach things on my desk with the same ease. My keyboard was at a much higher angle. Did I shrink???

What in the world...

How do I magically shrink in 30 minutes. Or how is it possible that someone would adjust my desk without anyone else noticing? I called all my desk neighbors together and asked them if I looked smaller or if they noticed anyone messing with my desk. Nobody was very sure...

Then I started getting questions about if I was abducted while I was gone and shrunken. We came to the conclusion...that I must just be going crazy and really nothing had changed.

As I sat and typed away attempting to be productive again, my uncomfortableness bothered me and the fact that I was going crazy. Then I remembered that one of my taller friends at work had complained about how he had banged his knees when trying to sit at my desk before and how he couldn't get into it. I ran over and asked him to comply with my experiment. He did and was able to slide into my desk with room to spare.

See?? I am not crazy! I did not shrink! The gentleman must have adjusted the WRONG DESK!

Why do these things always happen to me?



Update: I just found out that the facilities guy who was adjusting desks went to the wrong building and incorrectly adjusted my desk!

Okay, time to confess. I work for a psychiatrist who pays me to go around adjusting people's desks in order to drum up business. You caught me. Good sleuthing with that tall guy thing. I'll get you next time, though.

that desk in the picture looks too high to be comfortable!

You know, the same trick an be played (and captured on video for weeks of non-stop laughter) with the seat in someone's car. It's especially comical when you select one of your taller friends and slide their seat as far forward as possible. Notice how they will still try to fit in the car before adjusting the seat back first. I tell ya, it makes for a fun-filled afternoon.

*oh, this probably shouldn't be done when it's raining... that'd just be mean.*

Ha! It's nice to be proven sane now and then.
