Does An Office Make A Man?

I have always wondered how it feels like to have your own room. Does it mean you have reached the pinnacle in your career when you have your own room? Do you expect to be treated differently? Would your peers treat you with more respect? Well, I reckon this room thingy is slightly over-rated.

Here is the list of inconveniences:

1. For one, you have to start locking your room door now. You would have to ensure you bring the door key to work every day.

2. The room window leaks every time it rains (it’s an old building). I suppose that is a small price to pay for having a window.

3. You are so used to pinning your documents on your workstations. Now, you can only use the self-stick bulletin boards and you wonder what you are going to do with the extra pins.

4. All the sudden, you are all alone. You used to work in the companionship of your other colleagues. Now, you feel you are inside a matchbox.

Well things are not all that bad. You will definitely have more privacy. You can get to watch the latest episodes of House and Chuck without having to worry about anyone finding out. The space is more spacious. And you get to have personal discussions right in the comfort of your own room without having to book a meeting room on a different floor.

Anyway, it is too soon to really come to any conclusion. In any case, who would reject a room when you are given one anyway? So let’s see how things would pan out later. Cheers.
