Back in the good old days, a Working Girl could walk to the supply closet and grab a green box of Office Depot tissues. Not any longer. With the recession causing higher costs for everything from gas to paper, we are cutting costs. The first thing to go: tissues. Seriously. With cold and flu season upon us, this could be a bad choice.
Upset by this new development, I ran to the supply closet to secure one of the last boxes of tissues for myself. When I left the office last Friday, my box was neatly sitting on my desk. Upon my return on Monday, the box was missing. Someone stole it. And that, my friends, was the beginning on my draining work week.
