I've learned a thing or two during my brief stint as a downtown office worker:
- If you are willing to walk four blocks you can park for $10 for the day (provided you arrive before 9AM) instead of $22. Hell yeah, I'll walk four blocks for $12!
- Leaving the house just past 7 and getting home just before 6 does not leave much time for errands. I have gained a whole new respect for the time management skills of normal people who work regular hours.
- I don't have nearly enough office appropriate clothing, ie well-fitting, unstained, and unripped.
- If you pay attention, you can make it through the week without sustaining any paper cuts (or worse still, cardboard cuts).
- Winging it isn't all that hard; you'll figure it out or make it up as you go.
- Planning meals when you are at work all day takes a complete shift in mindset. Cheese sandwiches, it is.
What did you learn at work today?
