Officewatch 2010™: Images from an Empty Office

Posted by on Wed, Dec 22, 2010 at 3:04 PM

It's still pleasantly quiet here, although the sound of the downstairs door closing woke me to a nearly finished bottle of bourbon and my head on page four Canterbury Tales. My curiosity has not yet driven me to begin rifling through colleagues' desk drawers. In the meantime, please enjoy these photos of an empty office:

News Department
  • The news department.

The sales department (Third floor).

Cool! I want to visit and bring donuts, straighten up all those loose electrical cords, and string up some little blinking mini-lights...but I will probably just content myself with speculating about what the posters say.

What's with all the lights being on in the sales department? Think green.

Have a happy holiday season my friend. I too am the one left to guard the office. Ours won't empty out until Thursday afternoon though.

The whole goddamn place looks like a death trap. Rickety and shabby all around. I wouldn't trust those chairs or those dividers or especially that fire hazard torchiere lamp. And I definitely wouldn't want to be caught in that hallway with a Stranger staffer around.

Paper comes out looking good, though, so I guess it's OK.

It's grim-looking, but lovely people make lovely things happen there. That makes up for a decor budget that's lower than the monthly moorage fee for Keck's smaller boat.

I'm kinda surprised by how much Tea Party propaganda you have around. Is that some kind of irony thing? Or are you all further right wing than we realized? Either way it kind of bums me out - like those freaks who put pictures of serial killers or Augusto Pinochet on their walls 'cause they think it's funny.

Word, @8. Plus, they all loved Luby. I'm worried for our little newsroom that could.

If I had a cubicle like that I would take someone else's walls and turn mine into a cabin thingy.
