Here’s a brief, illustrated recap of what happened to me on Monday.  Also, you have a sample of my handwriting, which I haven’t specifically been practicing, but it has been looking fairly decent of late.

Since I ended up reporting to an office that was not to be my home office, nothing was prepared for me.  Of course, I doubt anything would have really been prepared for me if there had been someone at the home office anyway.  Because I found out on Tuesday that my laptop had somehow been rerouted to a client site instead of coming to me.  It wasn’t exactly THEM’s fault.  THEM apparently had UPS reroute another laptop to a contractor who was at a client site.  Somehow, UPS decided that meant my laptop should go to him too.  So he had two.  I think.  It would have really sucked if he had mine and didn’t have his.  Anyway, right now the theory is all of my missing new hire paperwork was also routed to him because I never got any of it.  It made going through orientation rather interesting since I had nothing to refer to and just had to listen to THEM talk about all this stuff.

ALSO!  On Tuesday I received ALL THE PACKAGES!  Ok, so not all of them.  But they issued me a company credit card for when I’m on the road (supposedly it cuts down on paperwork!), gave me the badge to the building (helpful!), the key to the office (helpful!), had someone drive out to the client site to retrieve my wayward laptop (so very helpful!), had a box of clothes delivered to me (they expect ALL MY ALLEGIANCE I think because it contained so many shirts and even a jacket with the company logo), and I got to meet the CEO.  He happened to be in CA and when he’s around, he likes to visit all the offices.  He seems like a really nice guy.  I was treated to a general meeting in which the term “old fart” was used waaaaay more than I’ve ever heard in any meeting setting.  I was thoroughly entertained.

I think, I might just work for the most entertaining company ever.  EVAR.
