Hey, Get out of my Space

 

officeSharing an office with my business partner, Belinda Spillman is always interesting.  Her desk is against one wall and mine is against the other so we work with our backs to each other. 

 

There are times when she says I am in her personal space.  It got so bad in our last office that she put blue tape down the middle and told me not to cross the tape line.  She wouldn’t give me an easement to the door to go out to the men’s room so this was a problem.

 

Our new office is set up pretty good, but when I go to her desk and look over her shoulder on her monitor she throws a bit of a fit. 

 

The good thing about this office though is that my work area is next to the door so she better watch it or she won’t get an easement and she goes to the ladies room a lot more that I go to the men’s room.

This is just too funny!  Chris, as I was reading the post I had the same thought, but couldn't remember his name.  Thanks!

My boyfriend and I share an office in our home but have never had any issues.........but then he isn't a Realtor either. Perhaps that helps.....................

I understand the problem. However, this is a real issue if tape needs to devide you. LOL

That is funny, Will. The blue tape would really start a conversation.

That is good. Perhaps a small room dividing screen might help as well. :)

Sounds to me like you need a little bigger of an office. I have a second desk in my office, but it's offset, kinda diagonal behind me.

Hi Will, location, location. You now have the upper hand, holding the easements and easy exit path. I think she better get rid of the blue tape now.

Will, Pat's Favs brought me here.  That's pretty funny and reminds me of a Seinfeld comedy routine.

Will, I smile often when I think about your relationship with Ms Belinda.  Too funny about the territories.  I've got to side with Belinda...I hate when someone looks over my shoulder lol.
