Dumb office quote of the day

Every once in a while at work I hear something that should have been a line out of Office Space.

The line? "You’re not supposed to work at your desks."

What, pray tell, are we supposed to do there, then? Drink beer and play cards?Some context: My group is being moved. Someone other than our supervisor is designing the new layout. Our supervisor is trying to nix the current proposal.

The line with immortality written all over it was a response to his complaint that the layout didn’t have enough desk space for everyone. There was enough room for a monitor and a keyboard, and not much else.

    Most of these "ergonomic specialists" or "facilities managers" don’t have a clue about human interaction or the synergy that can result from it. Apparently, your guy "got the memo".
