Office regulations per me.

12/09/2010 05:08:00 AM

I have a few rules that I feel should be respected within the workplace.

1.) When an office door is closed, never, ever walk in. Why? Well, there are so many reasons. Just resist the urge and knock. Trust me.

2.) What I bring and put in the office fridge belong to me. What you bring and put in the office fridge belongs to you. Easy. [So whoever is drinking my splurge (mini cokes) - STOP.]

3.) Don't eat tuna or any other kind of fish in the office. Ever.

4.) Say good morning. It's the least you can do. Everyone likes to be greeted.

5.) When sharing a uni-sex bathroom - all genders should kindly return the toilet to its' original state. It'd be great if you could flush. And close the lid.

That's pretty much it.

Your rules?

  1. To me it's amazing the things that I would believe to be common sense that just aren't. With our community fridge here as long as you label you are usually ok.

  2. ...and never, EVER, clip your nails at the office.

    (Yes, a co-worker of mine used to do this multiple times a week. So disgusting!)

  3. (Seconding the clipping the nails thing. SO. GROSS.)

    Use your inside voice. Stop screaming into the phone -- the rest of us are TRYING TO WORK HERE.

    Also, if you just can't make it to the bathroom and you HAVE to fart in your cube...at least surreptitiously spray something so the rest of us don't have to suffer for the burrito you had for lunch.

    (Confession: I have eaten salmon at the office. I am part of the problem!!)

  4. Our HR director used to bounce a tennis ball off his office walls during his lunch break. He claimed it was for some sort of physical therapy but I don't buy it. Thunk thunk thunk for a half hour straight. He's retired now, thankfully.

    Microwaved brussle sprouts is another big no-no.

  5. I agree...why is it that people feel the need to clip their nails in the office??? It's so weird, not to mention really gross.
    And...clean your own dishes, don't just set them in the kitchen sink, I mean seriously people! :)

    Amen to saying "good morning"!

  8. I feel like you should put some marking on the bottom of the coke. THEN walk around, looking for your mini-coke and you can prove its yours (pointing to your name on the bottom). It'd make the day more interesting anyway.
