The office manager got me a new keyboard last week because I accidentally broke my spacebar key several months ago while cleaning my old one. Now my key strokes are smooth and quiet instead of disjointed and clackity. It's the little things that make my day. haha!

My keyboard has decided it wants to skip letters and spaces.  I changed by batteries and it's still not working right.  Can I have a new one, too?

I was so mad that I broke the spacebar of all keys on my last one. I sounded like an angry typist all the time because the only way I could get it to work was to slam on one side of the bar. haha. 

Maybe you can get lucky like me! ; )

I'll ask IT, he should do it pretty quicky.  I write his check.  Wouldn't want a missing #!

Mine has days where the space bar doesn't work like it should. I share it with the other shifts so there's no telling what gets stuck in there. I flip it over and shake out crumbs all the time. One lady on 3rd shift has a bad habit of painting her nails and getting polish all over. I hate having to share :(

That would be SO IRRITATING. I'm a little particular about my desk. I have a coworker who gets into my drawer all the time for stamps. I have no problem giving them to her, but STAY OUT OF MY DRAWERS!

I have a cabinet that I keep my papers and snacks in. I used to keep a set of silverware, a bowl and some paper plates in there but one of my coworkers ran off with my silverware and half of my paper plates. Now I just keep a couple things in there and drag everything else with me back and forth to work
