    Brand New Office Building - Mice!

    So we have a brand new building in Urbandale (West of Interstate) for our company (1,500 people in this location) and we have mice - in my cube!

    I'm on the second floor and you have to have a badge to get in the building so I'm wanting to know who swiped their card for the little guy and who pushed the button on the elevator to get him up here!

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Re: Brand New Office Building - Mice!

    Here's a funny story, kinda.

    At my last place of employment I sat next to a lady that we nicknamed "Mary Tyler Moore." She was an older lady that always had to have the perfect hair, clothing and shoes. She even talked like MTM.

    Anyday, she came into work and said that her cubicle smelled. She looked around and couldn't find anything. Now, this is in the days of the big box monitors and not the flat screens. After a day or two of searching and cleaning she decided to look behind her monitor.

    There she found the source of her problem. It was a mouse that had somehow become lodged under the monitor. It had been sitting there, dead, for God knows how long. You could hear her scream clear across the building. After we figured out what was going on we all had a good laugh.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Re: Brand New Office Building - Mice!

    I was working late one day and heard our little Laotian cleaning guy scream. Looked over and he was standing on a desk. Turns out he was emtying garbage cans and saw a little 14 in corn snake under the desk. I was the only other person there so I picked it up, put it in a bag and took it outside. The guy loved me after that and would always bring me egg rolls that his wife had made...

    I would think they would be more likely in a new building than one that is a few years old. I mean during construction there is plenty of time for them to get in, right?

    Re: Brand New Office Building - Mice!

    I am not affraid of snakes, spiders, or anything like that, but the second I see a mouse in the same room as me I will freak out. I think I would have to take the day off if I saw that in my office.
