11 reasons to love office life

1 min read

What’s not love about life in the office? There’s comradery, there’s free birthday cake and there’s unlimited office supplies. While there are often a few awkward moments thrown into the mix, we can’t help but love office life. Here are 11 reasons why working in an office is the best.

1. Hilarious conversations

Thanks to the invention of open plan offices, you can listen in on colleagues’ conversations all day long.

2. Lunch breaks

While those who work from home are spending their lunch break doing a load of washing, you’ve got a whole hour to do w-h-a-t-e-v-e-r you want.

3. Free office supplies

You’re officially addicted to post-it notes.

4. Office gossip

Chats about co-workers and bosses around the water cooler are not a myth. In fact, they’re the lifeblood of the office.

6. Positive affirmation

You’re not the only one who thinks your ideas are brilliant.

7. Free food

With all the work lunches, celebratory morning teas and birthday cakes, you never have to bring in your own snacks.

8. Obligatory weight gain

You now have an official reason for not moving 8 hours a day.

9. Forced savings

Working all day, every day, means you have less time to buy, well, anything.

10. Motivation

It turns out all those motivational posters around the office actually do work.
