Office quirks ; collab with Chloe from Little Mayfly!

July 29, 2018

Ladies and Gents, fellow attempting adults of the world, boy do I have a relatable post for you today!

Myself and one of my fav pals Chloe from Little Mayfly are collabing for a few things we noticed happens in EVERY office! Chloe’s actually the main reason I got into blogging so I would really appreciate you checking out her blog here as there is something there for everyone!

Both myself and Chloe work in an office so we thought we would put together a little collab about what you find what happens in every office, no matter the business, so lets jump straight in…

1.Tea
I never used to like tea that much and tbh i still don’t but something about sitting at a desk makes you drink tea every few hours and even having dedicated tea breaks!! I don’t even drink tea at home that much it just becomes one of those habits you can’t get out of and now ive even become that awkward person in the office who has special teas such as the fruit teas available so you could say I have gone above and beyond the stereotype….

2. Customer Service voice
When dealing with the public you gain a new and improved peaceful customer services voice compared to that of how you usually speak. It doesnt matter how grumpy the customer, you maintain the voice of a saint, but its a completely different story off the phone. This is something everyone picks up on as by having a smooth calmer voice, if you do get any angry customer they feel calmer speaking to you. Customer is always right as they say…

3. Christmas is actually all year long
Seriously, Christmas can be 365 days away and you’re already planning what leave you are entitled to and how the bank holidays fall. We have a christmas countdown in our office and as much as i want to enjoy my summer break Christmas is only 200 odd days away…

4. Pens galore!
I have a whole draw of pens, red, green, thick, thin, posh, cheap you name it i’ve got it and i probably dont need them all. But can i find the right pen when i need one?? Of course i can’t, and this is always the case, you can never find a pen when you need one!

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this little post, its especially important seeing as me and Chlo have been meaning to do a collab for a while despite spending more time at our local spoons then actually blogging together! Please do check out her ever growing blog and Chloes take on every day office life…You can also check out Chloe’s instagram by following littlemayfly_blog

Can you relate to any of these?

Lots of love…

    I drink tea all day at work, too! For me it’s an excuse to get up often and take a permitted break, and when I drink it all day, I also have to take regular bathroom breaks. Basically, it’s an excuse to not work for a few minutes at a time 🙂

    Lol. I’m a tea drinker and I drink more of it at work than any other time. The phone voice is definitely something I notice. My dad used to have a phone voice, it would drive me insane.

    Hahaha, I ALWAYS talk about the “phone voice.” It’s funny when you feel yourself slipping into it but it’s even more hilarious to see someone else make the transition. You’re having a normal conversation with them, the desk on the phone rings, they pick it up, then…BAM…professional phone voice is there. When I went from Youth Ministry (with an office and private line) to teaching, I lost most of the need for my phone voice but I still catch it popping up from time to time.
