However, there are a few things about work that have been bugging me. Since they are not about the job, I figure they are o.k. to discuss.
POINT 1. Our wing of offices is at the end of a long hall. Down this hall, there are several other doorways that open onto other office suites. For some reason, the hallway immediately outside our office suite, which is blank wall for quite some space, collects weird smells. Thus far, there has been:
- Super-concentrated chicken broth
- Strident B.O.
- Orange juice
POINT 2. I do not necessarily consider myself a super-friendly person, but I think it's only polite to say hello to people when you pass them in the hallway. I can always tell the people who work in my wing because they are the ones who seem to have difficultly with basic human contact. If someone says hi to me, I know immediately that they work in another office. Because I am perverse, I have made it my business to be obnoxiously and aggressively friendly to the people who skitter down the hallway, avoiding contact.
POINT 3. Our office is business casual, and it will never cease to amaze me the different meaning this term has for different people. Some people wear sweaters or button down shirts and jackets and work pants. Others show up in leggings and sweatshirts. Unless your business is teaching people what Downward Facing Dog looks like, leave the yoga pants at home.

I have a new post up at Secret Society of List Addicts. It's awesome, of course. All about jobs. But in a completely different way than this post. Because I, in fact, talk about jobs.
