Work irks part 2 (hopefully rolling)

Also those under desk heaters just make the air con work harder


#362

Nah not having it. It’s currently perfect FOR MEN and uncomfortable FOR WOMEN. And they don’t want to meet us in the middle or give us a solution apart from REMOVING OUR SOLUTION.

They could adjust the temperature up a little bit making us a bit more comfortable and making the men a TINY bit uncomfortable and the men could buy desk fans if they’re still too hot.

Or they could just let us use our heaters, like we’ve been doing FOR YEARS.


#363

No I think that is LIES.

The heat doesn’t go further than under my desk. The area around my desk is still icy cold.


#364

Well we’re sedentary so we’re not moving to warm up. It’s just ridiculous to have this as the temperature.


#365

Only half? Part timer


#366

I quite frankly don’t care what they do.


#367

We’re too cold in our office a lot of the time, but not always, so it’s difficult to dress appropriately when you don’t know what it will be like.

It shouldn’t be that difficult for an office to be at a reasonable temperature for everyone, people shouldn’t have to plan what to wear - if you’re dressed reasonably (i.e. wearing pretty much any clothes) then that should be enough.


#368

If I’m at work I’m doing everything I can to make myself comfortable - count me down as a loud and proud desk eater.


#369

Dunno, to me it just doesn’t seem fair that someone with bare legs in the office would complain about being too cold and want action taken that makes others uncomfortable


#370

But the bare legs might have been necessary to be comfortable on the commute.


#371

Why should I have to sweat my arse off in 100 denier tights on my 40 min commute because I know i’m going to be completely freezing in my office for 8 hours?!


#372

Most people commute though


#373

Put your tights on when you get to work

Unfortunately I’m not allowed to take my trousers off. I would if I could


#374

Have you actually tried taking your trousers off in the office?


#375

Why should I?

You can wear shorts if you want.
Or light trousers.
Or get yourself a fan.


#376

Everyone wearing skirts I say.


#377

The temperature shouldn’t be so low in an office that having bare legs makes you uncomfortably cold though.


#378

To be more comfortable when you are at work I suppose, same applies to the ‘just right’ group they could probably have a more comfortable commute if they wore lighter cloths but most put up with it for a more comfortable working day which is a lot longer


#379

I’ve been sent a password to something and it’s “stonehendge”, which is irking the fuck out of me.


#380

I’ve got the Spinal Tap song in my head now, at least.
