Oh, no. This is really bad. Terrible, in fact. Adelaide, how could you let this happen again? I’m such a fool. Why would I agree to take care of the office fitout when I don’t even know where the office is?
I suppose I need to give a little bit of context here. Over the last month or so, my boss has been talking about the possibility of getting some good interior design done to liven the place up. I wanted to show my value to the team, so I told him I’d take care of it. The entire team has taken annual leave for the next two weeks so that I can transform the office without any hassle. Should be no problem, right?
Wrong! Because I just called an office interior design business in Melbourne, and the first thing they asked me was where our office actually is. The truth is that I have no idea. Somewhere in the Melbourne CBD. I catch the train into the city and don’t pay attention to which street I’m walking on. So I know where the office is, but I don’t know its actual address. I have tried finding it on a map, but I just get really confused when looking at the Melbourne CBD. Our business has no online presence, so I can’t find the address there, and I can’t contact anybody from work because they are on a technology-free holiday! This is a mess.
How am I supposed to get commercial fitouts? Melbourne residents, if you know where my business’s address is, please tell me! Unfortunately, I can’t tell you what the business actually is because of my NDA. So yeah, this kind of sucks. I hope I don’t get fired for failing to transform the office.
And before you ask why I don’t just go to the office and find out the address that way, it’s because I hadn’t thought of that until now.
I’ll be right back.
