It is hysterical what some people will argument over.
Favorite pens, pigskin team plus politics are fodder for office arguments. And guy they can get ugly. I have absolutely had to bring people into our office to settle disputes. There have even been times where I threatened termination over the way some people could simply not stop arguing. I understand that when you spend such huge amount of time with the same people, it can get a bit testy. However, there are truly few instances where as the boss I can simply eliminate a source of conflict. But, I just did that truly thing not 2 weeks ago. The Heating plus Air Conditioning plus the control equipment have been a boiling topic since I arrived at this office. Either it was too boiling of too cold. There just wasn’t any way to please everybody. The control equipment was getting yanked around so much I was afraid it was going to fall off the wall. Then it started getting where there were absolutely factions within the office due to the temperature. I even went so far as to lock up the control equipment but that did nothing but make everyone mad. So, I had an Heating plus Air Conditioning company come in one afternoon to help me find a solution. Our office is one big area that takes up the floor of a building. There are truly few walls. However, the entire floor is heated plus cooled by one control unit. The Heating plus Air Conditioning guy commanded all of us adapt our new Heating plus Air Conditioning idea into a zone controlled environment. The update was minimally invasive plus not overly high-priced. The beauty of it is now each section of the office has its truly own control unit. So, after a few desk moves, the office found peace on at least one issue.
