Wall of the Possible Future

Redemption Riley

I was talking to an artist friend a while back and they mentioned they hadn't ever worked in an office. At first I was envious (I've almost always had an office day job and wondered if the grass was greener) but at the end of the day, I really enjoy working in an office. (Well, maybe not at the end of the day because usually by then I'm wishing I was at a happy hour with friends.)

I can be pretty social so for me, the most fun part of my day is getting to talk to my co-workers. Unfortunately, this Friday is the last day for a lot of them. We found out in December that they're closing the Seattle office. I have until June (someone has to turn out the lights).

Some people are understandably nervous about what they'll do next in this economy. My ever helpful co-workers put up this wall chock full of career suggestions and dubbed it the "Wall of the Possible Future."

You might have to click/enlarge to read them, but here are some practical ones: plasma donator (not just a donor), game show host, perfume/cologne maker, private dancer, smoothie pushcart or perhaps the old reliable position of pachinko parlor operator.

My job is going to be way less fun without them.

And all our lives will be way less fun without you! I am so coming in to the office these next few months to (sexually) harass you. =)
