penalties to buyers and sellers: Clowns in a Volkswagon - 09/19/07 09:18 AM
If you've ever been to the circus you might have seen the act where they see how many clowns can stuff into a Volkswagen.  Until recently, that's how our office has felt for the last year or so; too many agents and not enough desk space.  With a whopping  384 square feet including a bathroom and storage space, our "main office" was a marvel of efficiency while maintaining a certain cozy feel.  Cozy or not however, the idea of "sharing a desk" took on a completely new meaning in as it meant not only that a desk might be "shared" by … (0 comments)
