We don't DO Ghetto
So, yesterday we had a training session at work for a new database they are rolling out. The training sessions are taking place over a couple of days so in our training session there was only 4 of us. We are maybe about 45 minutes into the training when a girl walks in, and after about halfway in apologizes for interrupting but she needed to check something. She proceeds to walk to the window, attempt to open it then leaves. She then comes back with one of our office manager assistants and he opens the window for her. This whole time she is interrupting our training session. The assistant gets the window open, and he leaves. Then she looks at us and says, sorry but I just have to get something. The next thing we see is half of her body hanging out the window. Now, I work in NY on the sixth floor.. so picture that. She pulls herself up and out with two six pack of sodas in her hand. Apparently, she kept them on the window sill to keep cold and to maybe not have anybody steal her soda? Now, all of us have no idea who this girl is. We just had our Hoboken office move to our office a week ago so we are assuming she is new. Now, this message is for the crazy GHETTO person who thinks that to keep her soda cold and from anyone else possibly stealing (maybe that's what was in her mind?) it, she has to put it on the window sill that she can barely reach with her body half hungover the window. You're GHETTO.... we have TWO fridges in our kitchen that is for you to utilize. And no one is going to touch your stuff. If anything, put it in a bag and put it in the fridge. Hoboken girl, we don't' do that in the NY office. It's called being professional, and you are being unprofessional for just WALKING in on a training session and causing a distraction because you wanted your stupid soda. It's called waiting until the training session is done and the room is empty. At that point is when you can go in there and make yourself look like a complete idiot But because you decided your stupid soda was more important and urgent, you made yourself look like an idiot in front of other colleagues and now other people in the office knows about you because we are Corporate America and love to share gossip. Congratulations ghetto Hoboken girl. Way to make a first impression.
