Example text

Let’s say you’re starting a new job in some office. You might want to think about the impression you will be making in those first delicate weeks. You might want to think about how you’ll present yourself, and how you’ll go about making yourself a valuable and necessary part of your new place of employment. Or you might just be utterly clueless, and have to learn through trial and error, just like so many before you. A NOTE TO THE NEW GUY Listen, you just started three days ago, and no one wants to tell you this, but somebody has to: quit sidling up to our cubicles and getting all chummy with us.

But try not to ask your boss. Do your job, impeccably and good-naturedly. Keep your eyes and ears open before you plunge into the cauldron of office politics. When five o’clock rolls around, or six, or whenever your workday is finished, don’t bolt out of there as if you’ve been held against your will for eight hours. When your day is done, it’s always a good idea to check in with your boss, perhaps asking if there’s anything else that needs to be done before you leave. If you establish yourself as a person who is on time, takes direction graciously, works cheerfully, and is always eager to help, you will be met with understanding and forgiveness, should you happen to be tardy one day, or should you need to call in sick.

But you have a tiny inkling that “you” is not that handsome wood-veneered French country sideboard, or the cute bistro chalkboard with the rooster on it, or that knotty-pine kitchen table. The gleaming sleigh bed is pretty, but it just seems too solid, or something, and it is entirely lacking in fun. A living space that has a sense of humor is a fun living space, and can cost far less to assemble than buying an entire suite of furniture from a home-décor showroom. So have fun when you’re putting together your place.
