I really love office stop in! It’s crazy at times, often loud, hard to get work done for sure, but there is so much laughter and smiles and good natured joking among the guys. Newspapers get read, crosswords get filled in, often with everyone helping to find a word! Paper and pens get handed around when some of our more creative want to draw or write poetry and occasionally one of our friends will pop in with some new finished art work that they wish to show around. I have some of that around my desk that has been given as gifts! Sometimes a friend may curl up on the big comfy office chair and nod off for a mid morning nap.
It’s safe here in the office and the guys know it! We have some basic rules to follow but nothing too taxing. We ask for respect of one another, disagreements that become heated are to be taken out side, discussions on the glories of drugs is not for the office nor is cussing.
But, that’s pretty much it. Today we had twenty guys (and gals!) packed around the table. Coffee flowed and plates of treats were handed around. For two hours, we laughed with each other, teased one another and enjoyed a safe place to hang out. I only pray the same could be said of the rest of the day for my friends, once they leave the safety of our office.
