7 Unspoken Rules For Working in an Office (48/365)

Working in an office may seem like a structured and very professional atmosphere for those who haven’t experienced it, but in all honesty, it’s like a playground for big children. As a result of this working environment, there’s a lot of weird unspoken rules that people enforce and pass over without realising.

  1. When there’s free food/goodies it’s a massive free for all, so you better be prepared to run, or speed walk to get some.
  2. Openly judge those who ‘reply to all’ when there’s no need.
  3. Don’t be that person who steals other peoples food – the mass email from the poor soul trying to find the food thief isn’t worth the hassle.
  4. Some foods are not ok to eat at your desk – if they stink, be aware someone is hating on you for it.
  5. Everyone is aware of how messy or organised your desk is. If you’re a clutter bug, you’re definitely being talked about.
  6. If you’re taking a call, it’s best to go out of the immediate office area.
  7. Don’t be that person who comes in when you’re contagious – go home and rest. Patient zero is always the reason everyone else ends up ill.
