I bet you carry a man bag and wander about with a trendy latte aw day ya posing hoofter.
I work in an office my day goes as follows.
8.30am - 10am. Arrive at 8am Start up my PC. Send out 3 reports I have to do on a daily basis.
10am - Wonder round the office for 20 minutes chatting shit to different people
10.20am Make a tea but spend 15 minutes in the kitchen doing so
10.35-12pm Doing all the work I need to do for the rest of the day and answer any emails.
1pm -5pm So fucking tired after lunch just can't be arsed to do anything so just walk around chatting to people, browse the internet on my phone or just stare out the window.
5pm - Home
Office jobs are boring as fuck and most of the tasks are completely pointless. Office jobs are for women not men. HOWEVER I've worked in a factory.Most depressing soul destroying thing I've ever done. I've worked on a building site. Great in the summer but we live in the UK and it's fucking freezing so it's a no. I would take the boring low paid office job over all of those shitty manual jobs any day of the week.
Always fancied working in an hospital tbh think it would be quite interesting . Fact is most jobs are SHIT.
Most offices listen to commercial radio
I've never worked in an office with the radio playing. Im not even sure how that would work.
My office is mother nature. Far better tgan looking at a photocopier all day
It really depends on the company, some regional SME businesses, I imagine it's fine.
Any kind of professional services firm and you might as well wave your genitals about for how much putting the radio on would stick out.
Mine used to be up until last week
Arrive at 10.15am - 10am start.
Make tea...check emails...sort urgent helpdesk.
11.00 make another cup of tea so I can take it out with a fag.
11.15 do some proper work or check internet.
12.15 another fag break.
1.00 lunch either in the pub or the sleeping room.
2.30 get back from lunch and bored of afternoon already. check internet.
2.45 do an hours worth of shit then fag break.
3.30 need another pint normally so nip out for a fag or joint and have a sneaky one over the road back in 20 though.
4.30 send some wanky emails and then another break.
5.30 sort of done..tough day...grab a beer from the work fridge put some music on and just chill to whatever.
I also got to take duvet days, take full afternoons for lunch sometimes and generally be the office lush. 30 days paid holiday plus generous sick and compassionate leave as well. Got a 6month paid sabbatical as well.
I'm gonna miss this job but luckily finished up already and getting paid until Xmas.
I'm not looking forward to joining the real world again.
Anyway after that amazing CV above I will be seeking work shortly..
Most offices are general admin, secretary, Excel type offices.
If you put commercial radio on in a professional environment then...fuck...I ain't even sure what would happen. It's that unthinkable.
Obviously I need the man bag to put my happy sack and my quinoa salad in.
Depends really. I'd hate dealing with idiots in a finance department as I've helped with audits and the like but my jobs at the Toronto International Film Festival, and at Native Earth Arts the offices are fucking massive and we just toss ideas around and fuck around most of the day, so easy.
Different day today.
Spent 2 hours this morning going to a site to check smoke and fire damper installations.
Got back, took 10 mins to write up report.
Had a coffee, talked about the football.
Spent an hour researching rainwater harvesting systems that im thinking of pitching to a prospective client for a new shopping centre complex.
Currently having coffee across the street.
This afternoon will probably consist of floating around the office mixed with more research on sustainable technologies.
I also have to look up installing some mechanism to overcome the lack of coanda effect in an open ceiling hvac fit out design we did. Apparently there are complaints about down draft in areas and I think its to do with the lack of a coanda effect due to there being no ceiling.
Radio is still off.
The short attention span has served you well
I work in 'professional' services (what ever the fuck that means to you) and our clients include Nike, Dyson, Rolls Royce, etc and i don't see what the heck it matters if the radio is on or not. We have it on. If customers visit then they would go straight to the boardroom or available meeting room so wouldn't hear the radio. Unless you work in a call centre or something, radio is doing no harm.
Your daily job sounds quite interesting tbf. What do you do??
Building services/mechanical engineer.
It can be varied, so can be interesting. Like most jobs though it can have its boring/annoying parts.
Got cut up then got knocked down. Probably get home to find that guy fucking his wife.
