Open Concept Office!!


This has been known, and documented extensively by academic research, for at least 30 years.

There are only two reasons that corporate decision-makers continue to promote open office layouts today:

  • They want to save money. Open plans are a hell of a lot cheaper than private offices.
  • They are ignorant (either innocently, or willfully) of all this easily accessible knowledge.

The second explanation is almost impossible to come by in the real world. Billion-dollar companies don’t hire teams of a dozen planners, and specialized consultants, who remain blissfully unaware of the scientific consensus.

So when they tell you it’s about “fostering teamwork” or “encouraging idea exchange” or even just telling you how cool it is because [famous company X] does it that way, its BS. They’re going to save a ton of money by going with the open plan, and that’s what it’s all about.

Mask Rant


Alot of Americans seem to confuse inconvenience with oppression A business has a right to refuse you service if you do not have a mask on, it’s that simple.It amazes me when you hear full grown ass human beings make dumb comments like “I look healthy”,”I don’t give a damn”,”I have a right not to wear a mask”.God forbid your older family members die from something you brought home.

The below image perfectly embodies what I have been seeing around.
