Sitting arrangements

Filed under: Uncategorized — . @ 1:55 pm

There are 2 kinds of people in the world. Those that sit with their back to the window (Face to a wall) and those that sit with their face to a window.

We all know that everyone, in every office, fights to have a spot near the window. However, the secret tragedy, common to just about every executive in my company, is that once they have that window office, they sit with their backs to it.

how on earth can any sane person have a beautiful view to fields, streets, whatever, and choose to face a wall, of a cabinet for most of your waking hours? How can anyone not understand me when I insist on sitting facing a window? Why does no one turn their table when they are explained this to me? Am I a freak? Am I the only one that needs to see the outside world to remember that Man was born free? No matter what is outside, it’s better than looking at walls, if you ask me.

What would you prefer to see all day?

  1. 1. Yes, you are a freak
    2. I’ve recommended your blog on BlogDay 2007 http://pravdam.com/2007/09/01/my-5-blogday-choices/

  2. 1. Of course you are a freak – but I guess you know that already.
    2. With the view you suggest, you certainly did NOT rest your case. A construction plant – come on!
    3. When you have your face to the window, you have your back (and other body parts) to the door. You don’t see who comes in, and could be caught not doing real work (hmmm). The higher you are in the hierarchy, the more uncomfortable such a situation could be.
    4. In my office, the door and corridor wall are all glass. So I see what’s going on in the rest of the office. Thus, I may not see life “outside” (with ant-sized people), but I can see whole-sized human beings. Nicer IMHO.
    5. Haven’t recommended your blog yet – I’m waiting to see that you’re here to stay…
