1. M&Ms. I have a bowl of them at my desk, which is in the lobby area. I mostly keep these so that people will come by and say hi. I'm sneaky like that. However, I have noticed that the peanut are by far more popular than the original. This puts me in a conundrum. Do I keep only regular M&Ms so that people still come but don't eat bukoos of my candy, or do I keep the peanut so that people will stay longer? (I know I should be focusing on actual work during these times, but it's good to take a break...) What do you think?
2. Music. When I first started working, they told me that I could play music for the office, which I rather enjoy (thank you, Pandora). However, I quickly noticed that I could only play when our worship leaders were not in the office, because they are always playing music in some way or another. They do not tell me when they will start this. I only know because I start to think my song sounds funny until I realize that's because there are two or three other songs being played!
3. Greenery. The person who sat at this desk before me had a plant on a shelf that I have basically killed off with neglect. I'm thinking, do we really need a live plant? Would a plastic one be alright? I have no green thumb.
So it doesn't look like this yet, but I'm anticipating...
4. Germs. A couple of weeks ago, I had a pretty tough cold. Since then, I have bought Clorox wipes and I use them all of the time. I'm a little paranoid over it. I just realized yesterday, after wiping my phone, that I'm the only one that uses it. I know I need to relax, and I'm sure I will soon. I just like the knowledge that those germs are gone, and I killed them. I'm a regular germ and plant murderer.
I'm sure you all have much odder oddities in your office. Just so you know, we can all be weird together.
