Office Culture

Does Your Office Have a "Who's Next" List?

A bunch of co-workers were talking about the "who's next" list the office used to have when seemingly everyone was getting pregnant. One colleague made a witty retort saying guys have fantasy football and girls have their own version — "fantasy preggers." Does your office have a "who's next" list for becoming pregnant or getting hitched?

Nope. We have a big enough company that people don't waste their time with these things. In fact, for every person in the office that's baby crazy is another person sick of people bringing their kids in to be noisy without reprimand or quiet time (aka, kids old enough to be told to be quiet and parents that don't take a screaming baby somewhere quiet to calm them down). My husband and I met here and just got married last April - I'd be annoyed if I found out people were putting my uterus on some kind of countdown-to-baby fantasy betting pool.

I am one of two women at my job. The other women is my aunt and she has a grown up son. I'm 20 and single, so there is no list.

I work in a church childcare. We are all married and everyone has kids except for me. And they all know my husband and I have been trying for a really long time. They are pretty much all done with having kids, so if there is a list, I'm pretty much it!

I don't know if there's a list, but there's always talk when someone has a baby shower. Before they starting hiring again four years ago, they haven't brought in new college graduates in like 20 years. Now there's a lot of young women in their 20s. It's been one baby after another the last couple of years. One of my coworkers had been trying for years without success. I felt bad when someone asked her if she was next, but it turns out, she is! I'm pretty sure I'm third or fourth on this "list"

Gross! I would flip if I was on someone's list! Or if someone asked me to be on the list. Sick.
