And when you’re spending that much time in one space, it’s hard not to settle in and sometimes get a little too comfortable. Many of us practically live at the office. Hey, it happens to the best of us. Here are 5 things you probably do on the regular.
1. You Use Spare Moments to Get Your Personal Life Together
Sometimes you need to use your work phone to call your landlord to fix your shower or the salon to schedule a Brazilian. Or, you know, just to talk to your mom. No judgment.
2. You Mentally Chew Out Noisy Coworkers
While you appreciate the never-ending saga that is your colleague’s relationship drama, it can make it hard to get in the zone.
3. You Keep an Insanely Stocked Snack Drawer
Your desk is basically a personalized vending machine. Of course, it’s only for emergencies—like forgetting your lunch and bribing your coworkers
4. You Handle Chat Like a Boss
Thank you, internet apps for creating the biggest distraction and best part of the work day: catching up with your girlfriends via messaging. If only you could also get work done while planning your weekend and recapping last night’s “TGIT” lineup.
5. You Get a Little Too Comfortable with Your Work Wife
She knows all the details about your relationship, your family, and maybe even your monthly cycle. When you spend 40-plus hours a week together, what else would you expect?
