Pretty much how it went down only I was flapping my arms too!
I went to a gathering not long ago where one of the kids went into their room and came back out with a big fat snake. There were a lot of people there, and they just kind of looked at her and the snake, then went back to talking. I'm convinced a few years ago, I made a wrong turn and now there's a signpost up ahead.
Bringing her dog to work has been approved. I guess the genie is out of the bottle.
Guess we'll just have to see what happens next.
A coworker bought a kitten to work. It was cute and energetic. Then it crawled into a hole in the wall and disappeared! It took sometime to locate the kitten and induce it to come back out of the wall. Probably took at least an hour to rescue the kitten but very funny to watch.
Only a matter of time until:
That's just wrong!
I think that's fine, as long as I can bring an emotional support Telecaster to work, too.
My wife and I both work from home in separate rooms/offices, so our dogs are always there wherever they want to roam, and I like it that way.
If it was a corporate office, I'd definitely be open to it with the understanding that any animal involved in any bad behavior - whether the instigator or not - would be banned from coming back. Sorry, but work is what we're paid for and it has to come first.
There everywhere in France-including restaurants. Also, I have a favourite fish place in Bali, and the owner /chef got cranky with me me when I didn't love his Labrador enough to share my meal with him ( the dog, that is).
I'm like Toto's Dad and my dog was well liked but he was essentially my dog.
The view from my desk at work.
I worked for a while at a place that had a cat and a dog. It was pretty relaxing working next to them. They didn't fight, but sometimes (rarely) they both wanted to be petted at the same time, which made it harder to work.
I had a man-eating Llasa Apso. He was an adorable little guy so folks would rush to pet and smother him. He hated it. The little guy growled up a storm and even bit a few people. He would have been an ideal "Trojan horse" type dog at the office, where he'd no doubt get lots of attention and bite everyone who tried to pet him without his approval Yes: he was cute as could be while still being a mean little S.O.B.
Funny thing is that the little guy had a nose for identifying foes. He'd park himself in front of someone and start to growl at them non-stop. It was his way of telling you that the person was bad news. He was right.
For me, it depends on what "work" is. If it's a factory and the pet is either at risk from machinery / getting run over or poses a threat to safe working of staff, then it shouldn't be there.
If it's an office with adequate space and somewhere to take the dog for a walk at lunchtime - and no threat of injury or damage, it's possibly okay.
I used to visit a broker in the NE of England (he owned the business) and he used to bring his Labrador into the office and it "lived" in the knee-hole under his desk. Lovely dog and the only "issue" was the wet dog smell, occasionally.
Not in my space, please
If it was my company, the dog would have to go. If it's okay for one employee, it has to be okay for all, and you know that the next dog that shows up could be trouble. As it is, it's a distraction for the employee involved.
I love dogs. But they don't belong at work, and the don't belong in stores, or at restaurants. They are dogs.
We can't blame the dogs. It's the totally narcissistic people that should be called out- every time.
I don't want to be bothered by your dog when I'm working. I don't bother you when you're working. Please reciprocate.
Actually, no it doesn't. I don't get why people feel there always needs to be a universal rule for everything. Things can be handled on a case-by-case basis. It's done all the time. For example, allowing people to work from home. It works for some people, not for others. There is no "Well, if you let one person work from home you have to allow everyone to do that." It depends on the circumstances. Simple.
