I'm 27 and I've never worked in an office in my life.
probably deserve a gold star or something.
I remember being a student and thinking I'd never be the sort of person who'd work in an office and even though I didn't have any clue what I wanted to do I knew it would be too interesting to involve an office. Didn't work out that way unfortunately although I actually quite like the office environment sometimes.
it's fucking amazing
It's kinda exactly how I thought it would be but more boring. It would be nice if there was a hot girl or two to flirt with. However knowing (hoping) that it's only a stop-gap, I don't dislike it.
Once I realised there were no hot girls, I decided to get a better job.
but I worked in an office for 4 years. Simultaneously bitterly depressing and amazing.
Have a word with untrue.
You're not the only DiSer putting lids on jars for a living.
I imagine office work would be just fine / semi-enjoyable on a day-to-day level - but crushing in a long-term, existential dread sorta way
I now work in community centres, schools and libraries. Much better. Except the libraries.
i work as a nurse on a stroke unit
oh mr smith it's time for me take your temperature *sticks out breasts*
imagine how much i'd post on here if i did, though. christ.
I get out and about a bit though. 10% of my time is meant to be spent going up and talking to people.
although I guess my time is increasingly spent traveling between locations, in comms rooms etc.
I used to fix aeroplanes
Now I'm a radio producer.
It's a pretty common career path
Pretty much spend my days staring at two massive 30" monitors.
It's cool though, I do fun projects that get seen by hundreds of thousands of people.
I love my job, but it's so exhausting and stressful at times that I wish I was working in an office - I would love 6 months teaching, 6 months doing something else.
This term's been an absolute shit, but I know that as of next week I've got two glorious weeks off. And come January I'll love it again.
I find you tend to get really fat working in offices.
Never worked in an office.
going back to my old work on Monday in a callcentre for about a month or so for some extra cash, actually looking forward to it, kind of missed the bants and that.
