This is a Chinese Fire drill. Repeat: this is a Chinese Fire drill. All personnel report to battle stations their cubes for immediate disintegration and start packing.

The powers that be are re-organizing the cube farm here at work. I have to pack up everything in my "office" because it is being enlarged, from 8'x10' to 10'x10', and moved two feet north of its current location. It's a madhouse here. I've got more gew-gaws and electronic equipment in here than Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory. My cube is full of boxes. I've "boxed" myself in. I feel like Fortunato in "The Cask of Amontillado." People with allergies are snorting and sneezing their heads off. Guys with ladders are popping the drop ceiling and pulling network cable. Paperwork is flying. I'm about to shut down my computer. I hope I find everything when they put all this junk back into my "new" cube, two feet north of this location. More, if I survive. Wish me luck.

It's like something straight out of Dilbert. You're going through all this to move 2 feet? Insanity, man.

Roughly as crazy as my recent situation: I finally got moved out of the cave they had me locked in, to a place where I can actually see the sun. I resigned two days later.

Actually, the move is like six inches, tops, but they're tearing down all the cubes and enlarging them to 10x10 so they had to tear mine down too, even though I'm not actually moving anywhere. They've got me set up in the conference room for the duration. Heh! By the time I get all of my equipment hooked back up, it will be time to move back in again. Sheesh.

The fact that I have a pilot in the family made that entire Title the best one ever.


Good luck! And enjoy the extra twenty square feet of real estate!

There were 10 in the bed and the little one said,
"roll over, roll over"
So they all rolled over and one fell out
And that's when the little one started to shout

There were nine in the bed and the little one said...
