There’s a small dry erase board in the stairwell of my office. It was originally placed there so different departments within the building could communicate with one another about times they left. I guess once, somebody locked up when someone else was still in the building and they set off the security alarm. So thus, this very
high tech *mediocre* solution was formed.
At first someone got clever with it. They drew “leaving at 6:30 pm” in bubble letters. The next day someone drew a sun. Then the next day, someone drew a butterfly. Then someone erased the “leaving at 6:30″ and drew a stick person with a net catching the butterfly. Now isn’t that precious? Don’t you want to walk in on some random Monday morning to see how someone much more cheerful and happy to be alive than you enjoys the medium of dry erase marker art? For crying out loud.
So a couple months passed and now we’re taking it to a WHOLE new level. Multiple marker colors are involved. Pithy day of the week slogans. Crafty line art drawings. Approximately 50 people trying to “out wit” one another on a 8.5×11 dry erase board. It’s just phenomenal.
I decided to take a week’s worth of photos so y’all can see what I live with on the daily:
Oh good. Great. Let’s start the week with a rhetorical question. And then later someone took it one step further and wrote “Because something has to link Sunday to Tuesday!”
Please keep in mind that it wasn’t sunny that day or for at least 3 days before Tuesday because Florida doesn’t do anything half-assed…if it’s going to be hot, might as well be 10,000 degrees. If it’s going to be rainy, get your ark makin’ tools out because it will rain for days on end.
I honestly don’t even…..why psycho? Why? What’s psycho about it? Why did this person write the N backward? Why? This sign is a self-fulfilling prophecy because after I read it and tried to make sense of it, I became psychotic. Good call, dry erase board artist.
Yes, Terrestrial Thursday, this makes MUCH more sense. And somebody’s breaking out the fancy markers on this one!
I’m just going to go ahead and presume the misspelling of freaky is intentional.
Now that you’ve seen a week’s worth of dry erase board art, maybe you’ll get inspired enough to drive your OWN coworkers crazy!
