one of the only "perks" about my job is that I have an office of my own. it's the size of a closet, but it has a window, and it's mine -- I don't have to share! (I was in an open-plan office with 11 other people in grad school, so this is huge.)
yesterday one of the grad students from my boss's group came in and asked if she could move in here. D:
sharing, okay, she's quiet and isn't terribly messy, it's just one other person.
completely rearranging the office because she doesn't want to stare at the wall: AHHHHH D:
Oh no, it's a trap. 😩
She could just tape/pin up a poster, c'mon.
@phyrry that's what I said! she thinks she can fit a desk in here that doesn't face the wall, tho. more power to her, I guess...?
If someone's doing you a favor like that, it's rude as hell to make them rearrange everything to suit you. But that's just my take.
