Office Prank

I showed you that we painted the office. What I didn’t show you was the design that happened once the painting was done. Actually, I won’t show you all of that either, I want to focus on one specific thing. The designer added a large clock to one of the walls. Its hard to see the scale of it from this photo, but its about 3 feet across.

For some reason, I decided that I didn’t like the clock. From about 7/15 through 8/15, every time I walked by the clock and didn’t see anybody around, I spun the minute hand to make the time incorrect. Sometimes if was only off by fifteen minutes. But as the month continued on, the clock became hours off.

Eventually I couldn’t keep it in and told my boss and one other guy about what I was doing. They laughed and then proceeded to tell me that management thought the clock was broken. They corrected the time multiple times and replaced the batteries at least once. They could not figure out why it didn’t work!

After about 2 months it got out that I was messing up the clock and the joke was up. Most of us got a good laugh out of it and the time is now correct!

Office Painting – 7/12/2019

The Deck Commerce office has looked nearly the same since I started. It was time for a refresh. We had a decorator coming in. To save money and build teams, it was decided we would provide the painting part of the labor. Here are some shots of the work.

Some in-progress and after shots.

It looked like a Dexter shopping trip with all of the plastic sheeting they purchased to protect the floors.

Chad painting an orange accent wall.

If it looks like a mess, that is because it is.

Ann is removing tape after the painting is done.

Brad and Eric causing trouble.

Chris Deck (the owner of the company) is pulling tape.

Kristen is having fun.

 

There wasn’t much productivity that day, but the office sure looks better now.

Work Group Photo

The boss wanted to get a group photo of the office. I volunteered as the guy with a DSLR camera. I forgot the normal tripod, so I had to set the mini one on top of several boxes to get it right. I never quite got myself in the frame, but here we all are!

Mud Run – 5/2/2015

I said it last year about how awesome my employer is! He again paid for a large portion of the entry fee for anybody in the company to participate in the mud run. I remembered my camera this year! The photos that follow are a mix of my cell phone, Vivitar “Birth Control Camera”, Dan’s Cell, and the event’s photos.

Here are a few of us before the fun begins!Sara all clean
