As we prepare to leave our Pacific Street headquarters, we’ve asked people to share their memories of the building that has served as Goodwill’s Omaha home for the past 50 years.
I had been working for Goodwill for less than a year, when I went to the back room to pick up my mail. I met the UPS man at the corner, where he dropped his box and said “You better take care of that,” pointing to a snake on the floor.
I don’t like snakes – no matter if they are big or small. I went to my boss, who promptly climbed up on her chair and refused to help. Luckily one of the Work Experience students picked it up and took it outside.
I still check the the floor first before I pick up my mail!
