The building I work in is quite nice. Thanks to all the windows and skylights, it's flooded with light and makes the outdoors look even more inviting. Although, it's only fooling your senses into thinking it's warm outside, when in reality it's bitter cold. (Well, except for last week when it was in the 70's). The guys I work with are extremely nice. I get 5 weeks of vacation plus every national holiday. Needless to say, I am quite content.
So now we've finished with the preliminaries, let's move on to where my work is located. Now, one could think that Verizon found a free spot of land in an area that isn't very expensive, which is why they built where they did. However, I like to think that the building is strategically located, right smack dab in the middle of the crazies for a reason.
You see, directly behind us we have the psych ward to the penitentiary which is located across the street from us. The prison is actually behind some container houses where students live. Now, I personally wouldn't want to be next door neighbors with criminal masterminds... but hey, to each their own. The farther down the street you go, the prison is more visible to the street, since there is nothing blocking its view. It's sometimes amusing walking past it, as you see a message in one of the windows stating "lonely guy looking for love." Or the occasional cat call (by women walking down the street) to whomever may be near the window listening.
However, that is not all my friends. Oh no. For the finishing touch we have our very own Hell's Angels Headquarters just down the road. Yes, I can't help but think... strategic location, because everyone in IT has a little bit of "crazy" within them.
