Every once and a while, we all have a case of the Monday’s and half way through a new semester, they run rampant. On one particular Monday morning, I had a major case of said Monday’s. After deciding that the half hour I allot in my daily routine to get ready would be better spent a sleep, I realize I am going to be late if I do not hurry. Running to get to work on time, missing my Starbucks stop (I might add), I got to the office just in time. I greet my coworkers in a less-than-peppy manner and shuffle over to the mailboxes to clock in. As I look down I realize I forgot my name tag. Ordinarily, I would leave my name tag in my mailbox, but naturally, I forgot to the last time I was working.
This situation happens to me and many of my coworkers every now and again and because of this, we have found a solution: Oneeka. Whenever I or another student in the office forgets or is having a bad day, we all know to go to the second drawer of the Office Coordinators desk and get Oneeka’s name tag. Now, one may be thinking, who is Oneeka?
That is a question I cannot answer because all I know is Oneeka worked in the Welcome Center and her name tag was left behind. However, what I can tell you about Oneeka is that she, to a certain extent, is an office life saver because my co-workerss and I always have a name tag and new idenity when we have a bad case of the Mondays. The beauty of Oneeka’s name tag is one of life’s mysteries. What draws someone to pick Oneeka’s name out of a sea of white name tags? That will continue to be a life long’s thrillers.
So Oneeka, we thank you.
