We share a large open office with another company (they rent the space from us). The head guy brought his kid (about 4 or 5) into the office today and he’s totally out of control, and it’s very annoying. Right now, he’s typing (or shall I say bashing?) away on a typewriter – yeah, a typewriter! Before that he was running back and forth between his dad’s office: thump, thump, thump, “daddy!” Before that he was talking really really loud. Now he’s laughing.
Fer crissakes, if you have to bring the kid into the office, teach him some office manners, will you please? The dad has his own, large office. Why can’t he keep his kid in there with him and close the door? Instead, he’s out in the main office area, annoying everyone. Some of us are trying to work here!
My boss and our office manager sometimes bring their kids into the office. Their kids are very well-behaved. The mothers tell their kids to be quiet, and to speak in whisper voices. The admonish them not to run around. They give them something to do to keep them busy. You don’t even know they are there.
This is driving me crazy! I really hope the kid is not going to be here all day! This guy should know better than to bring an energetic 5-year-old into the office. But if it was really necessary, he should teach the kid how to behave and keep him in his office. ARGH!!! :mad:
