I got a rather good ‘L’ shaped sectional glass topped desk. My previous desk used to have tempered glass on the top which broke before I got the new one. The boss got Pro Auto Glass to make a slab of glass to put on the top which worked quite well.
That is until it snapped in half yesterday freaking the hell out of me. So for about half a day today I was working on the broken piece of glass. I sliced my elbow which bled quite profusely. It wasn’t that big a deal so there’ll be no compensation claim to Rob’s worker insurance. He put two layers of duct tape over the crack and we went to the store to get a new desk.
We got into a little debate about where my computer monitor should be. I can’t handle having it directly in front of me or where people can look over my shoulder and see my screen without me knowing first. Eventually I got what I wanted. Trying to impress upon my boss that I need to be happy in my job is hard. I’m hoping I can stick it out.
