You may also recall that I ran into a little snag where another coworker (also known as Mama) had set up a tripod and camera in the Designated Play Area A with the intention of using it for a video call. Technically this was my fault for failing to check the play area reservation calendar, which would have shown that time had been blocked out for the space to be used for a teleconference. In this sort of situation you have to be adaptable, and so it was off to Designated Play Area B.
