I walked by a friend’s office today and was concerned that something had happened to her. At first I was afraid that she had been abducted but then I saw her standing in the far corner and politely asked, “Did you decorate this place like this, or did an office supply store explode?”…I can never understand how people can function with their things piled up all over perfectly good surfaces. One time I had cleared a friend’s desk for her thinking that all those piles of things were likely making her nervous and flustered. As it turned out, they were only affecting me that way. She appeared to be more nervous and flustered once she saw the clear desk with the bookends and slots next to it with all of her things standing neatly in it. Strange. I thought it looked a lot better that way. Possibly it’s just me? I don’t even save email. I find a cluttered email box extremely upsetting. She’ll keep 400 emails in her inbox at a time. I don’t know how she could ever sleep! Oh well…to each his own. I’ll just make sure that no one piles anything up in my house and we’ll all live happily ever after!
