First day of work at the Field Museum, today. Just getting settled in. Found this phone in my desk drawer, with a note about some kind of product trial. Not sure about the details, but I’ll take a free phone. Thanks, faceless corporate lottery.
Okay, wow. This Chad kid they’ve assigned to me is either going to be my worst nightmare or my best friend. The jury’s still out. On the upside, he completely bought my line about working nights because that’s when people are awake on the other side of the pond. I guess it helps that it’s true, even if it’s not the real reason. On the downside, he stands way too close to me – no concept of personal space. I can freaking hear your heartbeat, okay, kid? Back up! Damn, I’m hungry.
Okay, Chad’s a keeper. I guess some of the staff complained about having to work late because I do, and he made my case for me without even asking. Way to go, Chad! He still creeps me out a little bit – apparently he researched my life in preparation for this job, and wants to stick his bike in my trunk and drive me home so he can start to learn my schedule. Like I said, total creep. Still, I think he’ll make a good assistant, so long as he doesn’t butt too far into my life. It’s really hard to get those stains out of my trunk.
