November 2nd, 2006 at 08:40 am

Yesterday my work team was informed that someone in the office has taken it upon him or herself to report to our supervisor that he/she feels we are all on the internet too much. It sounded like someone who walks by our cubes on a regular basis. Unfortunately, pinpointing that person would be impossible because dozens of people walk down the main thoroughfare near our desks every day. Thankfully our supervisor does not see this as a major problem, but advised us to be more careful.

When can I work from home? and at what point did I regress to grade school? "Teacher, the other kids in the class aren't playing nice!" Give me a break. If we were all on the internet constantly, we would never get any work done. I wish people would just mind their own beeswax.

I've noticed, though, that this seems to be a particularly crab-filled week. I'm not sure what's in the air, but everyone is in a mood. I can't wait until it passes (my own irritable mood included).

A friend of mine died in a car accident 9 years ago today. I always wonder what she would be doing now, had she survived. I imagine she would have been an international businesswoman...or maybe a great mom. Maybe both! November 2nd always reminds me to take a step back and remember that I may not be here tomorrow, so enjoy life (preferably without going into debt!). Smile

    Hehe. I'm doing the same here, and it's pretty much an open secret how much time I spend on the internet. I even get jokingly jabbed about it sometimes.

    Of course, part of my job description actually involves staying put in one area to anticipate any client needs, so no one has really complained. So long as the clients are happy, that's what matters most to my company.

    ba, when did you get my job?

    kashi: as long as your productivity is AOK and your supervisor is AOK, i don't suppose there's too much to worry about...

    The person is probably just pissy becasue s/he spends no time only and is always behind in work..not very good at their job I suppose. (At least, that's my theory on complainers) Smile

    There's been a fair amount of crabbiness here too...or maybe it's just me being crabby. either way, I'm ready for a change of mood!

    I'm sorry about your friend, and I think you're right: it's good to take the time to be present, in the here and now. It's a good reminder for me this week, anyway.

    Too bad there's no way to move your computer and seat in your cube in such a way so that you're facing the foot traffic. Smile
