But nothing is better about college than the time honored tradition of having a dry erase board affixed to your dorm room door.
For those of you who didn't go to college let me explain: Practically the first thing you do when you move into a dorm, before you unpack you clothes and that illegal hot pot you had to have to make ramen, you got out your double sided tape and hung up your dry erase board. You then took some colorful markers and wrote you and your roommates names on it and perhaps added something classy, like a a Keystone light sticker some guy handed you at Freshman orientation.
The main* purpose of the dry erase board was so that people could leave you messages while you were
Right now, we have a ton of meetings and training sessions so no one is ever at their desks when you need them. And yes, you could leave a post it note, but chances are there would be so many that when you got back your desk would look like a Midwestern yard in the fall. (Because Post Its look like leaves). Hence the need for a dry erase board. That way when you are away from your desk people could just jot you a quick note to say they stopped by. Or leave a funny saying. Or draw an inappropriate picture which gets them reported to HR.
I bet we could even get them cheap through our office supply connections.
This will be my new pet project, you know, once I finally get back to my desk...
