Dilbert continued

In keeping with the theme of the post "Ode to Baron" (see below) I am following up with the view from my office. Securing a corner office or an office with a view has long been considered an indication of increased standing in the company. To some, the office-location-status is more important than salary or workload. In a way, I am one of those. But not like most folks. Here are some views from my office that I enjoy every day at work. If I have to explain why this view at a lower salary trumps a computer screen and no windows at a higher salary, then I probably am not a sufficient word-smith to convey to you the difference measured in stress level, blood-pressure, and the ability to literaly whistle while you work.

As you can see, this was taken from inside the mailtruck. Here are more;

There are more, but you get the idea. Yes, I could be making more money. Yes, the USPS needs me in a higher postion. Yes, I wear a blue collar now instead of a dress shirt and tie. No, I do not get called "Sir" nearly as often. If you don't get it, stop by the Coosa River one afternoon and I will share half my apple while we talk about it. Maybe when you leave, you will understand. But not everybody does.

I understand, and as I sit here in front of my computer screen in my cubicle stuffed in the corner next to the loud printer that 13 people share...I am jealous.

Nice views. I can see why you enjoy your job! I enjoy my freedom as well.

If I contort my body and stretch out into the aisle amongst the sea of cubicles I can catch a glimpse of something green...we'll call it a leaf.

And people say I have no view from mw desk :)
