Dood, quit whining. You got a new monitor as a peace
offering. Take it home and see how it works!


Look, people have bad days--sounds like the owner
figured it out. The guy whose stuff you moved ...
well, your boss told you the desk was going so you
moved someone else's stuff. Do you chat with the guy
in question informally, around the coffee cooler,
etc.? Did he know you were going to do this? Was it
something that got crammed down his throat? How did
you use communication to mitigate the circumstances?

Besides, in the grand scheme of things, your
experience sounds a lot weaker than many that have
passed before, you just gotta try harder!!
