a bouquet of flowers 1
When I graduated from college I took a job at an insurance company in this huge downtown office building. On my first day, I was escorted to this tiny cubicle surrounded by what seemed like thousands of other tiny cubicles, and put to work doing some meaningless thing…A Bouquet of Flowers (1)

It was so terribly depressing I almost broke down crying. At lunch, all I could think about was how much I wanted to quit, but I couldn’t because I desperately needed the money.

When I got back to my cubicle after lunch, there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers sitting on my desk.

For the whole first month I worked there, flowers just kept arriving on my desk. I found out later that it had been a kind of spontaneous office project. A woman in the cubicle next to me brought in the first flowers to try to cheer me up, and then other people just began replenishing my vase.
