3rd Floor Carpet Installation Day 4

That's right, so far the carpet removal/installation has taken 4 days and only 1/4 of the floor has been completed.

Today, they began moving the computer terminals, tables, and chairs on the side of the floor on which I work. I have watched people sit down in front of terminals that have been moved away from the usual position. They aren't plugged-in and the chairs have been moved away from the tables. These people have pulled chairs up to these terminal and proceeded to examine the terminals to find out why they won't turn on.

For the past month, there has been a posting on the library homepage regarding the new carpet installation. The dates were posted. The questions I received (my first time on the desk today was 3:00 p.m.)

"Why don't the computers work?"

"What are they doing again?"

"Do you know if the computers will be working tomorrow?"

"Why don't they put signs on the computers?"

"They haven't finished yet?"

Whether you will be doing the carpet installation yourself or having it professionally done, all of these factors play into the equation. While it can definitely be done by someone who is not necessarily an expert, it is a good idea to ask the advice of an expert before starting.
