Now that I’ve ended my moratorium regarding discussing work matters on this blog, just let me say how much I detest open-plan work space. I know it allows organizations to pack more people into the space and it is also suppose to foster better communication between team members, but it’s also distracting as hell. Plus, one has no privacy. Now granted I don’t expect the sort of privacy I get when I enter my own home, but for someone like myself who is extremely territorial (I’m a leo), I find myself getting upset when people invade or hover around the boundaries surrounding my desk. Or worse yet, comment on matters on my commuter screen. Also really annoying is having to listen to the pretentious xenophobic prat who sits next to me. God, on days like this, I do so miss working from a cube or better yet working from home.
