12 Reasons Why It’s Time To Get Out Of The Office

We'll spend most of our lives working. Shouldn't we be somewhere comfortable? If you work from home, use GoToMeeting for all your conferencing needs.

1. When you work in a space with an open floor plan and sit next to someone who is totally distracting:

"How am I supposed to get work done?"

2. When the person in the cubicle next to you is on a conference call and blatantly talking about you.


Which, first off, is super-duper rude.

3. When you’ve gained 30 pounds thanks to your company's fully stocked snack room.

Technically, this isn't your fault.

4. When your favorite website is blocked.


"How am I supposed to see pictures of my friend's baby now?"

5. When your one co-worker constantly steals your lunch...

"Good luck sticking to your gluten-free lifestyle now, Mark!"

6. ...and when the other keeps microwaving their fish leftovers.

Can they not smell it??

7. When your boss micromanages, you tense up every time you see their name in your inbox.

You're better than this!

8. When Michelle from finance won’t stop talking about crunching numbers, and you don’t even understand algorithms, MICHELLE. / Via

"Uh huh. Uh huh. Yep."

9. When your cubicle buddy won't stop humming and you can now hear the song in your teeth.

10. When co-workers won't stop sneaking up behind you when you're in the zone.

11. When you spill something on your keyboard one too many times and the IT guys now refuse to fix it.

This is technically your fault, but accidents happen, OK?

12. When you’ve had too much fun the night before and just can’t.


When you can no longer take office birthday parties.
