Working in a wind tunnel

windtunnelToday, I am working in a wind tunnel. The carpet saga continues.

There have been a number of back and forth interactions in some way with both Safety and Facilities. Eventually, they cleaned the carpets.

This occurred last night.

There is a beastly fan in my room today, and they pointed it at my corner. It is cold working under the constant barrage of this thing. I am working in a wind tunnel. Here are my observations so far, day 1, of wind tunnel operations:

  • the smell
  • it is humid, despite this desert state
  • can’t hear the person standing next to me
  • garbage cans are piled high on the filing cabinets
  • papers are blowing off of the wall
  • a large, plastic chair mat balances on the tray of a large whiteboard
  • the cobwebs have not been blown away
  • they found a box of Trix that I had lost under my desk
  • can’t think, too loud

  1. I’d yell, “Get back to work!” but honestly, you wouldn’t be able to hear me, nor should anyone have to attempt actual work in this setting.
