You know that one person in your office who has a cubicle lined with pictures of their babies – or fur babies? Yeah, well, there’s pretty much one of those people everywhere. Personalized touches do make the office feel cozier – at least, for the person they belong to.
Right now, as you’re reading this, you can probably see Anne’s desk, covered in frames full of pictures of her children. One of them was on their first day of school when they were younger, one of them graduating from high school, and of course, a family shot taken at the department store by a professional photographer. Well, instead of kids, this person has fur babies that they’re overly proud of. So proud, in fact, that they’ve invested in all types of customized kitty gear
Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV shows on the planet these days, so it makes sense that almost everyone (if not everyone) in the office watches it. And, of course, after an exciting episode, you all want to talk about it and compare notes. But your coworker who missed the show last night might not be thrilled about it.
Their daughter had a ballet recital, so there was no way they could make it – but that’s all they’re thinking about today, and you can bet it’s what they’ve got planned for the evening. So, it’s understandable why she put up this sign asking everyone in the office to please be wary of spoilers. And hey, she didn’t ask them not to talk about it, just not to do it around her desk. Hopefully, they were mindful of her wishes that day!
It’s bound to happen once in a while that some unfortunate employee loses their beloved fur baby and posts “lost” signs up around their workplace. When this person’s gentle, sweet, non-vicious ball of fluff went missing, they panicked. Luckily, they were able to post this sign – to warn everyone he was on the loose.
No, that kitty wasn’t missing at all when this sign was put up in the office. Someone in the building just thought that this picture was hysterical and wanted to share it with the world. Hey, we need laughs around the workplace, and we say the more, the merrier! Bring on the funny viral kitty pictures and memes galore. The boss may not be too happy about it, but the employees certainly appreciate the humor.
Jammed All Night
Office printers are like the workhorse of the building; they’re often overworked, overused, and undervalued. But that’s not what’s going on here, “Mon,” nope. They value their printer so much that they even named it after the biggest legend in reggae music. Unfortunately, it’s because it’s apt since the darn thing is always backed up with paper and rarely decides to print.
It’s great that the people in this office have a good sense of humor and are able to make light out of a bad situation. But they weren’t really worried about Bob Marley being jammed because they have another printer down the hall named Santana, and it always runs perfectly smooth. Okay, we’re done with the musical puns, sorry!
Introvert Office Space
This guy gets nervous around people, but he’s really good at his job. So, his boss agreed to let him create this safe space in the office. Now, he can get his work done without feeling the prying eyes of coworkers. Ah, the perks of having a cool office environment and a boss that won’t fire you for joking around.
People who work in offices with lots of people can implement this strategy to make it feel more like they’ve got an office of their own. If you’ve got claustrophobia, though, you may want to reconsider before you decide to box yourself in like this dude. Plus, it doesn’t look very sturdy. One bump from a passerby and that thing could come crashing down in a second.
