One of them is coming up vacant soon. It is being filled by another accountant because they want to keep the accountants 'together'. Regardless of the fact that there are other empty cubes near other accountants. Regardless of the fact that, quite honestly, I need the space.

Every year, we have an Audit Party when the annual audits are done. A party, celebrating the fact that the accountants did their jobs correctly for another year. When my department busts their ass and locates a million dollars that someone ELSE lost, do we have a party? No. Is there even acknowledgement that it happened? No. We move on, and continue what we do.

Why bother?
