I’ve only been here for just over 2 years, so the fact that I have not changed desks isn’t really relevant. There is one man, however, that has managed to NEVER move in his nearly 2 decades at Shive-Hattery. He’s a quiet guy, and a guy you always need around because he knows everything about AutoCAD; I don’t think I’ve stumped him even once. He always sits down, hits a bunch of keys so purposefully and rhythmically it sounds like percussion solo, creates an awkward smiley face with a couple circles and a curved line, gets up and walks away while I stand there amazed and confused.
This gentleman recently moved desks to make way for a new hire. He’s closer to my desk now, so I think I can just shout or throw a paper airplane next time I need him to fix what I’ve inevitably broken.
After his move he kindly pointed out that he left a few mementos to the person who is to claim his former space. I didn’t know what I would find when I walked over, but I was happily greeted with all non-perishables. This was weeks ago, but I found myself telling my husband about it just a couple days ago, so I figured I should share it with others. Take note that the current year is 2014…enjoy :)
