One of the analysts in my group has an office across the hall from our department conference room . . .
Today he says, “There was a training class in there yesterday and they didn’t close the door. All the noise was coming right into my office.”
I say, “Couldn’t you walk over and say, ‘Do you mind if I close the door?'”
“Hmmm, I guess I could have done that.”
True story! — the problem was beyond his analytical powers.
I love my job but it’s not without its challenges . . .
