There are many factors that make an office more enjoyable to work at. Having your favorite snacks in the vending machine. Unlimited amounts of soda to drink. Having a friendly and knowledgeable receptionist. But one thing that I think is very important is the location and placement of the bathrooms. I don't know who designed my office building, but they must have not put much thought into bathroom placement. Every time I what to go to the bathroom, I must set out on a long and arduous journey that takes me into parts unknown. The men's bathroom is 10 feet from my desk. To go to the woman's I must get up, walk across the floor to the reception area, exit the big, heavy glass doors and walk through the elevator area (which has a disco ball by the way). Then I must scan my ID card to open another big, heavy glass door, pass the stairs and the go through 2 more doors to get into the bathroom. I wouldn't mind it being far away if I didn't have to do so much work to get there. The doors are really heavy, and I have to bring my ID card so I don't get locked out. I also am sometimes forced to make small talk if there is someone waiting for the elevator. Then there is the seemingly growing tension between the receptionist and the rest of the employees, or I get sucked into some story she has about her family or kids, which I could not care less about. But that is another story for another day.

Here was a lovely little article I found in The Onion... I'm so proud to work for such a fine and upstanding network.

New VH1 Show Canceled For Not Being Pathetic Enough
June 18, 2008
NEW YORK—In a press release Tuesday, Viacom executives announced their newest hour-long VH1 Celebreality program, Knight Life, with former Brady Bunch star Christopher Knight, has been canceled for failing to reach the wretched depths of the network's low standards. "Despite some really excellent footage of Christopher vomiting into his hot tub, Knight Life was just not pitiful enough to meet our audience's expectations," Viacom president and CEO Philippe Dauman said of the show, which only featured three unsuccessful attempts to hit on strippers, two drunken brawls, and a single midget. "Unfortunately, the program lacked the petty and reprehensible acts that demean all humanity and make for good, compelling television." Dauman added that VH1 would consider bringing the show back if Knight were to become so distraught by the cancellation that he had to be hospitalized for an unsuccessful suicide attempt.
