The Michael Scott Paper Company moved into its 165-square-foot headquarters on last night's episode of The Office, leaving Michael, Pam, and Comeback Ryan without any personal space. With no doors to close for privacy, the three colleagues adopt different corners of the office and have plenty of time to make calls because there's no work to do. Quarters are so close that Pam blatantly hears Micheal tell his mom, "P is being a B," and Ryan tells his friend, "Pam would be a six in New York, but she's a seven because it's Scranton."
I sincerely hope none of you have similar office conditions, but I know square footage doesn't matter much when everyone is sitting so close to each other, anyway. Do you make personal calls in your co-workers' presence? Do your co-workers make them in front of you?
