Wait, you work at the airport?

I had a job offer in the Flatiron Building once, but I couldn't take it.

Yes.

What type of job was in the Flatiron? I would assume it's just office space now?

Not that this counts, but I used to live right across from Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House. It was really nice to open your blinds and have that beauty taking up your entire view.

Used to work in a semi-famous building, 1400 Smith Street in Houston. Houston people will get it. Walked out for the last time in February, 2002.

Those were crazy times. I remember walking from the Met to my building, and overhearing several of the employees saying "we are supposed to check our voice mail to find out if we still have a job."
