    My office just got flooded :(

    I was sitting there minding my own business when I started to hear a rushing sound from the office accross from my cube. I thought the A/C had finally been turned on but it sounded a lot like water falling.

    I stood up to see water cascading out of the ceiling onto the desk. After I ran in and grabbed some files and such that needed saving - I went to wash my hands cause the water stunk like something dead.

    I come back to find water all over my files, work , computer, desk etc.

    We quickly moved what we could salvage to another cube. What a mess :blush:

    It's going to take a while to figure out where I was and where everything is.

    At least I'll probably get to go home early today -- glad I'm not working in maintenance :D .

    Ever seen 6" of water on the floor of an office on the 5th floor? I wonder what it looks like downstairs...

    I got most of my personal stuff. Just lost some work - and it still stinks!

    They said they cleaned the carpet 3 times but it stinks terribly. Hopefully it will be better on Monday.
