MY LEAST FAVORITE THINGS

A Facility Management-Inspired Interpretation For The Holidays

(To be sung to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from the movie, The Sound of Music)

Raindrops on servers and a feral kitten
FedEx packages astray in Great Britain
Hung from sprinkler heads more Christmas light strings
These aren’t a few of my favorite things.

Broke irrigation and refrigerators
Burnt out light bulbs and loose alligators
Furniture panels stained by buffalo wings
These aren’t a few of my favorite things.

Thermostat hackers who alter your setpoints
Burnt microwave popcorn that stinks up the joint
No copy paper or elevator dings
These aren’t a few of my favorite things.

Fire alarms, toilet bowl rings
When budgets are bad,
I somehow remember these terrible things
And now I don’t feel so glad.

Cocoa-stained carpets and foul fumes from lacquers
Cheap cologne masking millennial slackers
Broken urinals that flows like new springs
These aren’t a few of my favorite things.

OSHA Inspectors and Working this weekend
Candy and Coke machines that just will not vend
Wild geese that attack workers with their wings
These aren’t a few of my favorite things.

Stained ceiling tiles and some missing blueprints
Hot calls and cold calls from the same departments
Missing my connecting flight in Beijing
These aren’t a few of my favorite things.

Fire alarms, toilet bowl rings
When budgets are bad,
I somehow remember these terrible things
And now I don’t feel soooooo glad.
