Bad Furniture Will Put You in a Bad Mood

How many times will you hit your knee on that old steel cabinet, tear your pantyhose on the corner of that wooden desk, hit your head on that outdated overhead, and have so many other injuries due to bad furniture at the workplace?

Sometimes I dreaded having to sit at an old, worn desk, work in a cold office, and recline in a broken chair. "We will have to replace that, " the boss' assistant would say after I complained for the umpteenth time. "How long do you think that will be," obviously irritated I would ask. "When we have money in the budget," the assistant would respond nonchalantly. Funny, some companies seem to never have money in the budget unless of course the boss needs a new pen.

Managers and supervisors should never take their employees' repeated requests for things like a new chair lightly. There are people who have back and leg problems. Some are too short or too tall for certain types of office furniture. There are those who need special accomodations due to being left-handed and others who are disabled. It can be frustrating for someone to have to ask over and over again for something as simple as a mouse pad, a nice pen, or a new filing cabinet. Then when the work is not done right or not at all, someone wants to have a fit!

Lastly, I sincerely hope you get what you ask for soon. Don't tire of asking!
