Office Refurbishment

Due to the number of newcomers in the office, we have ran out of workstations for everyone resulting in some of us having to share spaces. Therefore, during the weekend, my wing of the floor underwent a refurbishment to rearrange the furniture and resize the workstations to accommodate everyone.

When I came in, I noticed I now have neighbours on my right, left and behind. I no longer face the corridor to the ladies and am not seated at the secretary’s spot. But asides all that, my workstation has also shrank!

There were a number of complaints over the smaller area we now have especially those who have a large number of things. Moving cubicles is like moving house for some and I kid you not when I say my colleagues have the same amount of things I had when I moved to KL!

My cubicle has gone from a 4x5 panels to 3x4 but I have no complaints coz my old space was huge and very under utilized. At least now I don’t feel so small surrounded by so much blank space because the size is just right for me.

I also love love love my new spot because I’m no longer isolated. Those around me are friendly, cheerful and helpful. The mornings are the best when everyone comes in, says good morning very brightly, checks on each other to make sure we’re all set for the day and starts working. It’s pretty nice being where loads of exciting things takes place. Gosh, how left out I am for the last 6 weeks!

Allow me to give advice on human relationship..

please....Please...PLEASE don't kick the chair of the guy/gal in front of you if he/she makes noise. I suspect it will lead to great tension...unless if that guy is me, you'll end up being good friends...
