Despite Debra’s best efforts to avoid discovery, ultimately, management intervened. A tripped circuit breaker in an electrical control panel divulged the true nature of the enigmatic problem. The breaker, marked cubicle 32-4, clearly implicated Debra’s workstation as the source of the circuit overload and the following near-meltdown of the third floor. As punishment for the unapproved heater installation Debra received an afternoon of administrative leave without pay, and told to just think about what she had done. “If people would just stay busy they would be warmer,” said her boss. “Movement increases blood flow.”
In response to her recent temporary dismissal, Debra said it wasn’t as bad as the time she updated her Facebook status while taking a bathroom break. “They placed me in time-out and forced me to stand in a corner of my cubicle during the term of my lunch hour,” she said. “I think that’s why we work in cubicles instead of circles.”
In response to managements “stay busy” remark, and in the interest of being a team player, during her time off Debra conducted an extensive research program (in between multiple viewings of the 1980 comedic hit movie 9 to 5, in which three women overthrow their hypocritical boss), and she now suggests that anyone struggling with cold feet at work can do the bunny hop, the ever popular chicken dance, or jump up, do the hokey pokey and turn themselves around every ten minutes to stay warm. However, the nick, nack paddy whack, give the dog a bone song isn’t without merit.
At press time, Debra initiated a snap chat application download for use during work hours rather than Facebook, which updates randomly, toggles personal settings without permission, and publisizes detailed activity, complete with location, for all users.
