Yesterday morning I had a doctor's appointment, so I was a bit late in to work. We were having a shoot in our office. This is rare. Normally we shoot on location or in a studio, but for this particular shoot, our office was perfect.
I walked down the hall, climbing in and out and around lights and c-stands and wires and headed for my office. I said hi to the crew and turned into my already open office door.
And there behind my desk stood a shirtless man in the process of changing. Quickly, I backed right out of there. "Oh sorry," I kind of mumbled. Clearly, the talent was using my office as their dressing room between scenes. Our director must have heard my voice and knew that I arrived.
He called out from around the corner, "Hey Rebecca, don't go in your office. There is a man changing in there."
"Too late," I called back.
Amidst the laughter from the crew, my boss called out to the shirtless man, "Well I guess you guys should be formally introduced. Andy, meet Rebecca."
And that is how I ended up with my very own The Office experience.
