that picture CNS posted like 2 years ago of his desk on blocks with those free weights below it makes sense now.  if the sump pump goes out your office can never truly flood. genius

it's not that weird for a small business to be based out of a person's house (maybe it's just a construction thing tho).  the last company i worked at in mhk was based in the owners house for like 20 years before they expanded too much and had to build an office.  my current company was worked out of the owners garage and barn for 5-10 years before he got large enough for a big production building, then he started another business in his garage after that on the side and it's grown into another pretty successful business.

My first real job my office was across the street from the main office, above an antique store.  I thought that was weird and found a better job.  No cockroaches tho.

Christmas party this Saturday, guys! :party:

oh man, i hope my gE-lurking coworker (previously mentioned elsewhere) will give a first hand account of how he broke his tibia, dislocated his shoulder, and took 19 stitches to the face at the company party last Saturday :users:

You didn't expect to work with Japanese people in Japan?

I worked in a big cubicle area with people from lots of different departments. So at 9:30am and at 2:30pm in a designated conference room, anyone who wanted to stretch could go. Only about 15-20 people (out of maybe 100? I'm not sure) went. There was a leader who lead us through the stretches for about 10-15 minutes.

so was this more of a time wasting thing or did you see value in the stretching?

My work did the same thing as MG's (haha!) only it was in your own cube or just outside you cube.  There was a leader for each section of cubes I guess, or you could follow on a video conference.

I worked in a warehouse once and we had stretching before shift and after the two breaks. We would form a big circle (35ish people) and the boss was the leader. It was mandatory too

It was nice to take a break from staring at a computer. And the stretching helped you not get so tired from just sitting there all day.

i refused to lead the intended activity. people could stretch if they wanted to. most of us discussed what bars we were headed to after the shift was over.

AJ what kind of company, in what industry, do you work for?  Probably has as much to do with it as anything.  I'm gonna guess something like finance.
