What’s that smell???

I arrived at work today and the minute the door opened, there was this smell of raw plastic. It was almost overwhelming. When I get here, only about 10 percent of the people are in, so there was not much movement in the building yet. When I got up to my floor, I realized that it was also darker! They have replaced all the window blinds. The old ones were your standard plastic slatted mini-blinds. The new ones are some sort of plastic thermal blinds. They are like looking through a glass full of bubbly motor oil, which is why it is darker. The smell is the new plastics. We probably will all have splitting headaches later and cancer 20 years from now.

My boss made up for it. He supplied donuts.
