Odd Day and free books

A co-worker got fired today. This is strange because our company has the reputation of being the place no one ever gets fired from. I've committed a couple offenses that were actionable. Could have even gotten the company sued and I didn't get fired. So it's hard to imagine what one of our best and brightest could have done to get fired.

That said, we are doing some shuffling of our offices in preparation for new carpeting and painting and the like. I have a whole crate filled up with books I'm going to pitch. Cultural Anthropology, Archaeology, Paralegal studies. Medical assisting. Office 2007 apps. If you agree not to sell them on eBay, I could see that you get them. I may need a little help with shipping, but these are college texts folks and you know how much those cost.

Leave me a comment letting me know what you are interested in.

I'll check. I know I have one on the history of film. Someone must have thrown away a photography book though. I'll let you know.

Don't worry, I have about a dozen books in the cultural Anthro field. I'll get them all tomorrow and list titles once we are allowed to unpack again at the office.

I'm always looking for history stuff, depends on what you have, though. =)

I'll see what we have in the office and what people are throwing away. We used to publish history books in our office but it's been a few years.

"So it's hard to imagine what one of our best and brightest could have done to get fired."

Pretty easy to imagine, really. Boss have a daughter? ;)

Your office shuffle reminds me, somehow, of those games they used to make where you had the shift the little squares around to put the picture back in order...

Ah yes, the frustrating little finger games. Good guess.

In this case, the person who got fired was female and her boss is female and the same age as her so the boss's daughter thing doesn't work. I do imagine it had more to do with personalities than actual work relations though.

A Cultural Anthropology book might be interesting. I'm a ridiculous book worm so I just collect books on all subjects haha.

Anyway, if you figure out the shipping cost, I'll take one if you have any left.

I'm sure I will. I've got a ton of things. I only have to keep around the books we published this year.
