    I think someone ran a con on the floor below my office.

    The company that used to have most of the floor moved out a few months ago. The other day I noticed a set of corporate logos on the glass wall and an open door when I went by at night.

    Yesterday, I swear the elevator opened on that floor mid-day and there were lights on, people in the visible, conference room, etc

    Today I go by on my way out at 4:00 and it is all gone. Lights off, door shut, no logos or people.

    Shit is just like in the movies/on TV where the con artists take over a vacant office space with props and actors while convincing their mark to invest in their unique opportunity.

    Last year we had the feds storm an office building next to ours. Seize all computers, locked everything down, and made all employees leave on the spot.

    Back in 2010 or so the building where my office is located had several mortgage and title companies in it. Within about a month all of those spaces went from having 30-50 people apiece to being totally empty, usually overnight or over a weekend. It improved the parking situation immensely but I was sorry to see all those people lose their jobs.

    I know you liked this @Thrift Vader , it was almost a bottle of Yamazaki 18 but some of those bottles might help put my kids through college.

    Life is good. Been to some 2 dozen different countries in the past 7 months. Saved up a shit ton of cash. About to buy my first property. Stopped being a fucking idiot. Looking forward to a better, new job I've already secured. :)

    The unselfish part of me is happy for you.

    The selfish part of me is disappointed that we will now be deprived of the entertainment fucking idiot biscotti provides.
