I've finally made it
I have been in the workforce as a licensed professional for almost 4 years now. I have always had some sort of workspace to call my own. The first was a cubicle- I even shared this cubicle with someone else. I was just happy to be a grown up. Then they moved us to another building and I got my own office. It was 5 x 5 with a window out to the hallway, but it was mine and I kinda loved it. After leaving that job I started working at my current place of employment. Because I am supposed to be out and about all day, I was once again sharing an office. A crappy office I might add. An office with a computer desk and no drawers. An office stuffed with things, with ugly lighting and stinky carpet. An office that I rarely went to because I hated it so much. Well, this week, my coworker had had enough. She sent an email to our head boss stating that she HATED our office. With that, our boss gave us both large windowed (to the outside world) offices. If only I had known a little complaint email would be so effective I would have done it ages ago. Now I am a real professional. I can bring clients in to my office with a real desk and a pleasant smell. So the window looks out to the Marie Callendars next door, big deal, at least it looks out right?
