As I expected

I am back home in my garage office and I have to say it feels so much better. As you know from a previous post, Unhappy returns, I have to start going into the office at least two days a week. Totally and wholly unwelcome development in the work from home saga.

Anyway, I have just spent the last two days doing the whole commute in the morning and afternoon, office interactions, meetings, and getting reacquainted with a cubicle work, and cubicle moving/reorganization.

The office was noisy. There were people always coming over to say “Hi” and to catch up. I had to set up my computer in a totally different arrangement since my home office uses three monitor and the office only has two. My headset had to be reconfigured to actually be able to talk to people via Zoom and Teams (of course, you don’t realize this until you are in a call). Everyone is bathing in sanitizer and wearing masks… Can’t use the lunchroom. Sheesh.

Honestly, I didn’t want to leave my cube and I didn’t really wanna be there in the first place. So, I did my time and got outta there! I hate that I am going to have repeat this whole disruption to my best work environment on a weekly basis.

Ugh.

So, I am back in the friendly confines of the familiar and I like it. This is where I should work from all the time.

Cubicle Cruncher

I have a co-worker that sits in the cubicle next to me. She is constantly munching on crackers and chips, which isn’t necessarily a problem except that she also doesn’t shut her damn mouth while she does it.

All I hear all day long is her CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCHing away. Talk about annoying as hell!

Do you supposed it would be bad work etiquette to punch her in the mouth so her lips swell up and she can’t shove anymore chips in that pie hole?

Yeah, probably not…

Do you have an annoying co-worker?
