This Stupid Building

I'm not really as cranky as I sound today, but not for the world's lack of trying. :P The building we work in here is a rotting shamble, a big Coke-bottle-green glass box built sometime in the late '80s or so with an eye towards making a lot of money fast and on the cheap. The locks don't work, the elevators have sent people to the hospital, the plumbing is nasty, and the floors are uneven. Just about the only recommendation it has had was a beautiful row of cherry trees lining the sidewalk out front.

Which are being chopped down even as I type.

So between that and yet another poor bird that bashed its brains in against the windows that it couldn't see this morning, I'd slap this building if I could. -.-

All I can think of are the Peanuts comics with the sentient school building talking to Linus (I think? or was it Sally?)

Be careful, it might drop a brick on you too XD

Yes, we witnessed the elevator doors clamp onto someone's arm, and it didn't let go until people pried the doors apart.

and if I remember correctly
they WILLINGLY moved to this building a couple of years ago?

liking the Palo Alto building I work in--even if it is cold at times, occasionally floods, and has lousy lighting...

I love the LC building. The remodel (completely gutted and revamped the interior) did amazing things for it, while still maintaining much of the original structure and materials. Like the massive oaken doors and marble stairways.

Why on earth are they cutting down the cherry trees? (And how is that the building's fault?)

Have the best
