Way Too Open Office
I'm having an introvert-in-the-office day. Too many people. Too much talk. Too much interaction. Too many vibes. Auras flying around me like I'm in a blender with a spirits smoothie (not the 80 proof kind). My lines of defence are proving useless. I'm avoiding eye contact. Eating lunch. Even resorted to my headphones. But they keep breaching the barriers. This and the room being too cold are battling for my top complaint about open offices. Designed by and for the extroverts who made gym class a mandatory horror for all the years of my upbringing. I'm hanging out here, with you. You're quiet. It's one of the things I like about you.
