Work chronicles – The meeting room

Our office space is shared between us and them. It’s complicated…

The Others have different work habits and behaviours, they operate under unfamiliar work conditions.

I sit in an office right next to the meeting room, and I hate when the Others meet, because the walls are as thin as paper. Some of the Others joke that I may as well be in the meeting room with them.

I filter out most of the activity, except when the Others slam the doors and run in the corridors. And at a subconscious level, I become aware when they ramble or digress instead of adjourning, and that becomes annoying.

They’ve just adjourned.
