So ends my first day at the office. I spent most of it learning the job tracking system, sitting in a nice A/C office for most of the time. Just as the day hit 39C a truck load of PC boxes and CRT monitors arrived, so I ended up out in the heat lumping heavy weights on a trolly. Some genius in Sydney thought it was okay to shrink-wrap a pallet of unboxed monitors, and packed them by wrapping them in bubble wrap (ooh! Poppy!) and standing them on their ends--50% face down, 50% face up.
The destination store room was on the 4th floor. Elevators are your friend, but it meant we coulfn't pack more than 3 monitors on the trolly or they wouldn't fit through the doors.
