Things that are great about working in downtown New York City:
The view from your boss’ corner office, which you secretly consider your own,
watching the Staten Island Ferry roll in and out from the conference room
as you take the afternoon off to play your Nintendo DS
Things that are not great about working in downtown New York City:
Giant planes flying two millimeters from your office building and your security department coming over the loudspeakers to tell you that lots of other nearby buildings are evacuating but that you should sit tight and hope to not get smashed into.
Even not greater is that you happened to be downstairs at the building’s Starbucks getting your expensive iced coffees when the announcement was made, and you didn’t understand why all of these businesspeople were crowding the sidewalks until you came back upstairs to mass hysteria.
Also: your company’s facilities department is ordering facemasks and hand sanitizer for everyone in the office due to the swine flu outbreak. You’re trying to keep it a secret that you both were raised on a pig farm and had pork for dinner last night.
