Default Inappropriate Places to Congregate at Work

The following places shouldn't be used for meetings:

- in front of the coffee machines
- in front of the water cooler
- outside the bathroom
- IN the bathroom
- in my doorway when it doesn't involve me
- in the corner of the hall, thereby making it difficult to get by

Thanks.

It depends on whose desk you are under and what you are doing there

Having a conversation in the stairwell. People don’t realize how far their voices carry.

Conversations in the hallway are a bad idea in a medical clinic, and almost always every single participant has an office nearby. I've had to complain about staff carrying on LOUD conversations right outside my door, or just hanging around there. This annoys my patients, who have some expectation of confidentiality.

Sure as hell ain't me as I have worked on my miserable demeanor over the years so no one talks to me.
Now get back to work asshole and don't worry about the rest of the staff, stay focused on your workload.
