So I’m driving north through California and into Oregon as part of my “get away and write while spending Best Western points excursion,” when I get a voicemail. Listening to the call, I have fantastic news – I was declared the winner of the “King of Cubicles” contest!
View here: King of Cubicles
I didn’t even realize all this entailed. Not only do I win a year as a salaried employee with zero responsibilities, I ALSO won:
a) a wii
b) new business cards that read, “Joel Moss Levinson – King of Cubicles”
c) A FUCKING CAR!
Yeah, I totally didn’t realize the fine print, and I guess I won a car.
I know what you’re saying, “big moral dilema, right eco-Joel?” NO! And I’ll tell you why…
First off, let me tell you that when the email came through on my phone and I realized the company that declared me the winner was based in Portland Oregon, I thought, what the hell, it’s only 300 more miles – might as well go surprise them. So I did. (the picture on the right is some of the awesome folks from the office who took me out for drinks afterwards!)
But when telling me about the car, I found out it’s a damn electric car! Now I HAVE to keep it because it would be non-environmentally friendly for me to get rid of it, right?
