Used to work at a place years ago with those idiotic "motivational" posters framed and on the wall. My screensave at my work computer was of course a demotivational selection...upper management wasn't too impressed.

Thankfully my current job cut that shiat out and I can do what I want here. I just wish I had a bit more room.

If the rolling wet bar is wrong... wait, that's why I have a flask. Nevermind.

"a bit more room" for what? isn't the fact that everything's now all-digital, all the time meaning that we all need less room? and fewer clothes because why are we still going to a workplace? ugh, I'm in the wrong life....

I keep my cubicle really tidy. I have 4 photos: my dog, my wife, grumpy cat, and the I hate Mondays monkey

I miss my cubicle. Got laid off from my computer-nurse job and went back to providing patient care in a diabetes clinic. Infection control won't even let us keep coffee on our desks there much less snacks and other personal belongings.

I wish I had a cubicle.  Open floor plans when LOUD HOWARD sits less than 10 feet away with a love of buttrock and the other LOUD HOWARD and his love of the speaker phone turned up to 11 makes it a pain in the ass to concentrate.

DO - Have an office with a door you can shut.
DON'T - Work in a cube-farm.

That wouldn't be bad but not everybody should be allowed to shut the door.  It would be bad if the boss walked in and I was playing some of the more interesting hell raising alt-country.

*knock*, enter, hear "Ain't Goin' Down on Brokeback Mountain" by Wynn Varble
Yeah, that's not going to be good

I have zero medical experience, but I'm curious why a diabetes clinic would be worrying that hard-core about infections... to the point of not allowing coffee.  I've visited people in ICU, and totally understand the restrictions (visitors have to wash hands, put on hand sanitizer, wear masks).  But that seems a bit strange to me.

Infection Control Nazis love wielding their power.  When I was a unit secretary we were threatened with suspension if we had even a covered beverage on the desk.  Yeah, trying answering the phone 30 times an hour without liquid.   We were told we could quench our thirst at the public fountain ... um, no, but thanks for the offer.  I've seen people who cover the drinking fountain with their mouths - it was enough to gag a maggot.

IC took great pride in "rounding" the floors, trying to catch one of us with a drink (I was very good at hiding my drinks) so they could report us to Administration. They would bust us but not say a word when Environmental was forced to turn a room in less than 20 minutes for "deep clean" - they just couldn't do it because Corporate kept cutting staff to the bone, farming out ancillary departments to private corporations.

I hated Infection Control freaks.

I used to work someplace that put those up.  I was highly amused when someone visiting the office remarked that the one with the sailboats was a picture of the lead boat turning his sail to deflect the closest boat behind him into another boat.  So the lesson was "in order to get ahead, you have to sabotage the other guy"

I have some concert pictures I've taken on display in my office, but that's about it.

People with hard-core chronic diabetes are prone to nasty infections - small wound in the lower extremities can get very bad, really quickly, since their circulation is impaired.

On the other hand, power-tripping nazis.
