It’s been a frustrating day at work mainly because we don’t have enough space for the whole team so I’ve been moving between desks constantly. This is partly because the building is being redeveloped, with all the individual offices being transformed into one massive open plan space with space for 150 people.
This is my idea of hell. It’s bad enough as it is now but the three colleagues with whom I share an office are very tolerant and used to my tics. But I know they’re sometimes distracted by them. I think Tourettes might make open-plan working tricky for me, and for the 149 other people in the room.
I’m unlikely to put this arrangement to the test though. I haven’t made it official yet but I’ve been offered another job that I’ve accepted.
