...is a woman pushing 50 who listens to weird-ass trance/electronica remakes of 80's songs all day long.

Also, she talks like Ned Flaners. "Ex-act-a-dackt-ally!"

It's being piped in through the internet or an MP3 collection or something. I can't imagine there's an economic niche for 24hr broadcasts of "Betty Bette Davis Eyes" trance remixes.

Bette Davis, not Betty Davis, of course. I blame the ecstasy I've been dropping to get into the music.

Bite the bullet and "gift" her a $5 pair of headphones. That's how I got the new intern to stop flooding the office with "gansta rap".

Sadly, headphones won't really work since the job is one where you're moving around too much. It's a problem with an expiration date though as she's moved to part time and is phasing out over the winter anyway.

Still peculiar though.

I've only got three trance remixes out of a vast collection stretching from many years that are remixes from 80s or 90s pop songs, and those are actually pretty good....

I can't imagine a whole radio station devoted to it. It sure as **** isn't on di.fm Smiley: dubious

To be fair, you didn't say where you sit/stand/work/whatever in relation to her. But usually, these kinds of "I can hear the other person's music" issues occur in cubicle farms and not when the people in question each have their own private offices. Unless she's playing said music very loud and it's wafting down the hall or something, I suppose.

I see you and Varus have extremely limited workplace experiences if you assume either everyone is in a cubical farm or else in separate offices hallways away from one another.

So it wasn't illiteracy but rather limited life experience. Fair enough Smiley: smile

We have a warehouse environment at my office. 6 or so desks lining the walls, and a giant set of tables in the middle called the "in-bench." The managers get offices, but I'm okay with just having two monitors on a nice desk with a pretty comfy office chair.

I had a co-worker once who loved to crank the classic rock for hours but when it was someone elses turn to play something(we had a nice equal system) he'd **** and moan.
The solution was this.



After 5 minutes he left the job site and didn't comeback for 2 days. Productivity increased.

I'd go with old video game themes, myself. Death metal may get the desired results, but it won't get stuck in other peoples' heads to torment them hours later.

Though I guess you could attempt to go best of both worlds and find metal versions of classic game songs, but I'm not sure how effective that'd be.

An good office chair is one of the only things i can purchase in my little bureaucracy without six or seven layers of approval.

I'm in what can be most easily described as a design studio. A large room with a couple desks, design tables, printers, plan digitizer, scanners, plotter, plan racks, a bookcase behind me for my various books 'n binders, etc. The desks are arranged on opposite sides so I have my own space, although I suppose I'll have even more space once I take over completely.

Plus a there's map of the world pinned to the wall which still includes Yugoslavia. I've no idea what that's all about Smiley: laugh

No cubical walls though, much less shared cubicals. I guess no one here got the memo that there's only two types of work spaces in the Wide World of Employment.

I'm in and out of the office. But even when i'm at the office I have one of those cool wireless headsets so I can walk around outside while talking on the phone when it's nice out. When you do everything from marketing to customer service to sales it's good to be mobile and flexible. Of course in my office I have a framed copy of the national geographic societies map of the heavens, a few pictures i've taken over the years from a park I run/hike at blown up and framed, and during the spring and summer I keep a few vegetable plants just outside my window. I've been considering setting up a 35gal saltwater aquarium come the new year. I've tried to create a completely stress free environment.

I'm a production supervisor in a factory. Headsets aren't practical (loud background noise) or safe (forklifts and such). I don't need to deal with external phone calls too often, but I wish there were an easy way to take internal ones, when there is an issue at a certain jobsite.
