As most indie authors, I also have a day job. A job that I love at a company that I love. Like most companies, employees are all jammed in a 5′ x 5′ cubicle to fit as many people as possible into our building. Being that close to others for 8+ hours a day, 5 days a week requires some decorum if you will. Clearly, we must all be good neighbors to survive.
Just so happens that my tiny home is located beside a legit wall and the printer for our area. Today’s lesson in #cubelife etiquette begins here.
Let me preface: I’ve raised 3 kids. I have been through pregnancies and various medical issues in my 30-something years on this Earth. I recognize that gas happens to all of us.
However, in the name of all that is holy and right in this world, please do not stand at the printer that backs up to my cube wall and cut a nasty, loud fart!
- wait until the printer is running to try and blend into the noise
- step into the empty conference room beside you for a moment
- take note of the situation and walk to the bathroom
DO ANYTHING BUT CUT A LOUD ONE BY MY CUBE! I don’t want to know you on that level.
