The story reminds me of the time the big retail store I was working in got a huge facelift. They moved the whole operation to a temporary location across the street, and completely rebuilt the store. When the time to move to the new digs drew near, someone in upper management asked me if I was "excited about the new store." I had to feign enthusiasm. Uh, yeah. It's a store. I am working my way through college. The job isn't going to change; it's still the same job I had before. Who cares? But I didn't say that of course; I think I fumbled around for something like, "Oh yeah, it's going to be really nice."
