The Daily EO: December 21st, 2012

The strange consistent sound drove me from my office.


Down the hall from me someone was using the heavy duty paper shredder.  She was in sales and much of her discarded documents contained confidential information, so it made sense that this sensitive stuff was destroyed before disposal.   It was a large box of paper and her buzzing continued for 20 minutes or so.

Then the next person started with their box.

grrr/buzzz…pause….grrr/buzz…pause….grrr/buzz. . .

As I moved through the office, I noticed many conversations that started with:  “I’ve got bit yet, probably about 10 minutes?” or “Hey!  Wait!  I am next!”

The 5, 6, 7, 8 full garbage bags piled up near the shredder.


Shreds of paper gathered on the carpet around the office.

December 21st, 2012 Extra-Ordinary:  Apparently the annual shred-a-thon is a Christmas tradition – corresponding with our carpets and chairs being cleaned.  Not a pending FBI raid.
