Surrounded by furniture

So sitting here, waiting with not much to do but read and blog, I find myself surrounded by furniture. Several offices in my vicinity are having their carpets replaced tonight. All of the furniture has been removed from the offices and squeezed into the surrounded common areas. I caught onto this earlier and was smart enough to open my office door, lest I be blocked in by ergonomic desks and Aeron chairs and trapped in my office all weekend.

I’m not sure what it takes to wear out a carpet within your office, but whatever it is, those people sitting in neighboring offices have managed to do it.
