Rant

Let the rant begin. My office sucks, it really does. Our charity is situated within a beautiful old church that has been converted into offices. However, the room we have is so awful. Our "office" is the stage of the main hall. They put some wall board up and made it a seperate room, probably to get more rent money. We have one window but there are bars over it. The room never gets any sun, so its never warm. Today they switched the heat off in the building so our "office" is even colder than normal. To make it worse, the local kids drama club use the mainhall and they currently have their easter programme running so for 6 hours of my 7 hour day it is unbelievably noisey. It's even worse in the summer holidays when they have drama workshops for 6 weeks. Aaaaah. And one more thing? Im stuck in this cupboard all week by myself. Its sole destroying i tell you. My colleague is off on holiday and my boss hates the office so much that she never comes in and works from home, leaving me stuck here by myself. I swear i could drop dead in here and noone would know until the cleaners came in in the late evening. I'm not even able to work from home, "someone has to be here for the phones." I think it's so unfair that my boss works from home and i'm stuck here all day by myself. I guess that's one of the perks of being a boss though eh? Sometime i like being in by myself, i get more done and i even stitch, but every day for a week? It's like solitary confinement, it's not healthy. End of rant.

Hey Cheryl! I did SAL last night so I can't wait to see your progress. I didn't get to do that much but I did work on it.

I'm sorry you have a crappy work environment. I do have to say that is one of the perks now for the building I work in. The space we are in was just gut renovated 2 years ago, but before that it was a pit.

Good luck getting through the rest of the week! {{{HUGS}}}

Oh no, that doesn't sound good. It sounds like an office move is much needed!

Currently, I've got the opposite - I'm stuck in a tiny room full of tons of people, all talking on conference calls at the same time, ringing phones, it's just crazy. I like arriving early just so that I can get a little piece and quiet to do my work!

We've got the same environmental conditions, because this building is still under construction (I don't even want to talk about why my boss decided it was a good idea to move us over here yet). The worst is all the other teams in my division get to work from home, but my boss has decided we can't :/ And that's my rant :)
