A fragment of office mythology

They hired him as an Administrative Assistant, which means Moves The Boxes in the corporate tongue, and so that was his name among the people of The Office. He had other names too, secret names, names to be written on his W-2 and paystub and other forms one discusses not with coworkers; but in meetings, office gossip, and such, he was called Moves The Boxes. (Except for the times when he was called "Hey, you," usually followed by a comment such as "Could you be quieter? I'm trying to work here.")
... I wrote that back when I was temping at a data entry job, shortly before my wrist meltdown; but I never went anywhere with that. There's a longer story in it somewhere, I'm sure.
