Tables...For Asses or Glasses? YOU DECIDE!

Say it's a typical Wednesday afternoon in your office, or in any other office in North America. It's 3 pm, you're busily working (in my case, writing a memo, but it could be anything...Excel spreadsheet, PowerPoint presentation). A coworker stops by to discuss a business matter. Ignoring the attractive and comfortable visitor's chair, placed there for just such an occasion, he decides to sit on your desk. Tell me what is the first thought that occurs to you, using this scientifically-designed poll.

I hate that. You should've sprayed with Lysol while he was still sitting there.

I just pointed to the chair and said "here, sit down", and he did. I bet he has a blog and he's writing a post about the crazy HR girl who's wound so tight that you can't even sit on her desk.

I know my (all male) coworkers fart at work in their chairs. I won't even sit in a chair in the office that isn't mine (I marked mine in case they try and pull a fast one).

I don't want their swamp butts on my desk.
Ick.

The chair...even worse! See, at least the desk is a relatively hard, impermeable surface, easy to disinfect (the CDC team is here now, they look just like Rene Russo and Dustin Hoffman in that movie about the epidemic!

My crazy boss at my old firm used to sit on my desk ALL THE TIME. It used to make me so mad. But she was my boss and I couldn't say anything. I didn't have an extra chair but come on. Can't a person stand on their own two feet for 2 minutes to go over something? She only weighed 90 pounds. It's not like her fat arse was wearing out her legs. I have a very fat rear and I don't sit on people's desks.

Oh. One should NEVER ever sit on an HR person's desk.

Get your booty off my desk people.

I am glad to not have a desk at the moment, but finances will dictate that will soon have one. And I don't want anyone sitting on it!

At my last job we had Aeron chairs- they were mesh. I still made sure mine was mine!

Ew, desk ass.

CDP said...

Fran--I LOVE those Aeron chairs, I wish we had those!
Dr. M--and somebody thought mine was an ass desk. Which it's not.

I want to choose number one, but only if it is sarcastic. I hate for people to sit on my desk or put their feet on my furniture. Because it is rude (too familiar) and gross.

Sauntering Soul said...

P.S. I've tagged you on my blog. Please don't be mad.

CDP said...

I'm not mad, I kind of like being tagged...we're bloggers, we LIKE to write about ourselves!

We have to tell our oldest to get her ass off the dining room table all the time. Nevermind that bench that she likes better as a footstool.

And the kids wonder why we eat at our big desk in the kitchen....

CDP said...

Lady--I know...we're pretty relaxed at home, so our challenge is to make sure our kids understand that the feet up on the couch is NOT ok at anyone else's house.

Dcup--I know, they love to sit on tables, arms of chairs, arms of couches...anywhere other than where their bottoms actually belong!
