An update and a horror story

I have assembled all the chairs. I have also purchased paint samples to test on the chairs. I went the three-color route, with a combination of teal, magenta and mustard yellow. I'll post pictures once I have something to show.

In other news, the other day someone noticed a large cockroach casually walking through our reception area. This is upsetting for many reasons: One) Because the cockroach was not invited; Two) Because our reception desk is on the third floor inside a closed building and HOW DID THE COCKROACH MAKE IT THAT FAR WITHOUT BEING DISCOVERED; and Three) Because cockroaches are vile, repulsive and in every way disgusting.

But that's not the horror story. The true horror was how our receptionist chose to handle this serious security breach.

Step 1: She found a styrofoam cup and a piece of paper
Step 2: She placed the cup over the cockroach and trapped it
Step 3: She slid the paper under the cup and picked up the trapped roach
Step 4: She released the cockroach outside, back into the wild, where it could be free to terrorize other unsuspecting victims

What kind of sicko uses Catch and Release on a cockroach?!? Clearly she and I are philosophically and ideologically opposed in every way that is most important and core to human interaction.

Have a co-worker that is DEATHLY afraid of cockroaches. Can't even talk about them. She saw one scurry across the floor, and promptly screamed and hopped up on a desk. Y'all should meet, lol.
