First day back to work since last thursday. Came in to find five people in my office putzing around. I had to keep say excuse me, etc. to put my purse and coat away.. they took no notice. They were too busy ... apparently while I was gone they have become quite fond of MY Keurig single cup coffee machine and have decided they will use it. (It sits directly behind my chair - in an inconvenient nook, and meant to be inconvenient to everyone but me). So I had to wait this morning while one made her tea, then another made her coffee... and it also appeared they have turned the top shelf in MY office with MY coffee machine into their own personal little coffee/snack center.
You've GOT to be freakin' kiddin' me.
You know, I probably wouldn't have minded if they asked - but to just comandeer everything while I'm gone.. well.. it pretty much pisses me off. Anybody know any tactful way (well, I'll try that route first) to tell them to get the hell out and stay out and leave my coffee machine alone!! (I didn't notice anyone wanting to pitch in some money for the $200 machine), and this ISN'T a break room - I have freakin' WORK to do (piles of it dude) and I need to concentrate just a little teeny bit to get it done. Yeah, didn't take me long to be miserable all over again.
And I won't even mention the stack of work that awaits me after a 5 day weekend... Big fun.
