My office is moving to full glass fronts on all the offices (not even frosted). Allegedly it's because energy efficient and makes for happier people in interior offices. We all know it's to shame us into working instead of taking naps on the floor with a timer running. Ugh.

I think I had a CB at your firm... an associate told me they were going to do this. Isn't scientifically proven that naps improve efficiency?

I take a 15 min power nap every day. Sure, mail guy walks in every now and then but I don't really care. That 15 min is the best investment of my time throughout the whole day because it makes the whole afternoon's work much more effective.

Sometimes I weigh the pros and cons of leaping from the terrace and enjoying 20 floors of sweet, sweet free-fall.

When the office lights automatically turn off at 3AM, I often think about how great it would have been to have worked in retail.
