Slide of the Day #2374

Construction at our office is just about finished, and this weekend the slide down to the kitchen was unveiled. The landing isn’t quite finished yet, still lacking a patch of “grass” to welcome us to the lower floor, so we planted a bean bag chair to cushion our falls in the meantime. It makes for a somewhat awkward bump when we reach the bottom, but as far as I know there have been no major injuries yet.

Developers in San Francisco are allowed to remain children to some extent: we’re welcome to take the slide down and help ourselves to goldfish crackers and soda whenever we like, and stop for a game of Foosball on the way back. I am all for making the workplace into as much of a playground as possible; it’s important to have an escape when I’ve been sucked into a difficult problem for several hours.

I can’t help feeling spoiled here. Everyone deserves a slide.
