A Vent About Work
So, I took a new job at the end of last summer. It’s a great job! My dream job, really, but there’s one thing - just one little thing! - that’s driving me nuts.
I have to share my office with 17 other people.
17 other people who like to sit and talk about things. To me, to their desk mate, to the wall, to each other . . .
17 other people who have phones that make noises . . .
17 other people who are wearing headphones that make that little muffled sounds of unidentifiable tunes . . .
17 other people answering phones and helping students . . .
17 other people tip tap typing away . . .
17 other people making slurping noises while drinking their morning coffee . . .
It’s not even a space issue. The company that I work for believes that shared offices foster a team environment, will help us work together for the good of the student. Hip hip hooray, go team!
Meanwhile, I have to take work home every night because I can’t get anything done while I am there!
Anyway, just had to get that off my chest!
