(Another work-related Item. Last one for a while, I promise...)
I worked at a company that built a new office. When we moved into the new building, a co-worker found a block of wood with some velcro on it that had been left behind by the builders. For no reason that I can remember, she gave it to me as a present and either she or I labeled its constituent parts. The velcro enabled it to stick to my cube wall and in that position it superseded all existing HR intelligence tests:
What's that on your wall?Easy to see why the Block of Wood has followed me from job to job ever since, isn't it?
