In Stock And Ready To Ship

Have you ever done an inventory of audio visual equipment in a school that has over 100 rooms on two floors? I doubt you have, so let me clue you in as to what it's like. Two words: pure hell. I am currently covered head to toe in dust, dirt, grime, and possibly something that they were dissecting in 8th grade science. I've been bruised, scraped, squashed, and got a cardboard papercut. Not a pretty sight.

I've been forced to trick some of the teachers into revealing hidden AV equipment that they don't want to give back for fear of it never returning. Conversations go a little something like this:

NPW: "Are you sure you don't have a CD player in here?"
Belligerent Teacher: "No. CD player? Never seen one before."
NPW: "You're sure? Because that looks like one over there under the stack of books and papers with a sheet thrown over it."
BT: "Uh uh. Nope. No... oh, that? That's just... some magazines under there."
NPW: "So all these CDs here are just for show?"
BT: "Yep. Just in case, you know."
NPW: "Whatever."

I'm tired. Weary, even. It's almost summer. Must... hang... on....
