Went through the expected HR stuff: getting a key, employee manual, evacuation proceedures, etc. Then I was given a large box of chocolates and told that it's an office tradition for a new employee to go around to each work space, introducing myself and offering bon bons. I didn't ask about the protocol for people who aren't in their offices, though. Do I save a chocolate for them? What if they're on vacation? Do I get to eat what's left, or am I supposed to save them for people who forget my name?
Life in the U.S. after Switzerland. Sad.
