my office is located on the second floor of a building overlooking the bay. it's got an open floorplan and huge windows.
today, there are window washers. it's a little disconcerting to glance out the window and see men standing there, a storey above the ground.
but it's even more disconcerting (and what does it say about my professional career?) when my CEO suggests, in earnest, that i go buy sodas and offer them to the washers through the window.
(i think it says that, clearly, i'm perceived as the career-minded go-getter we all know i am.)
and then when the CEO realized i didn't take his suggestion, he told me i missed my chance to make some friends.
i just told him i'm waiting for a greater window of opportunity.
