Keep your grubby mitts off of my crates


Everyone is running around scrounging for packing crates because we have to be moved out of our offices by 3pm today. My team, the Windows Embedded team, is moving from building 117 to building 119, so I’m packing up. Building 119, I’ll have you know, is exactly like building 117, but 30 yards north.

No one has enough crates!

If you were the proprietor of a crate-rental service in building 117 today, you would be making bank.

  1. All the crates are in Building 118.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    The guys in 118 always have it better!

    Don’t you have lots of "Bill Crates" around? Or did they retire?

    Also couldn’t resist…

    Tim, I love it.

    I forgot to add, we did have Bill Crates but they’re now all down at the Crates Foundation.

    You should have hired some more crates!
