I've always been amazed by how such little things can cause such a fuss among some of my coworkers. Seems some of them complain for the sake of complaining.
Right now it looks like a shitstorm is brewing. My office (professional staff of 18 some people plus 3 support staff and any number of student workers) will be moving into newly rennovated space in a few months. By all measures this space is FAR superior to the area(s) that we currently occupy. But that wouldn't stop anybody from complaining. Over a year ago, when the office space was in the design phase, people were complaining that not everybody had individual offices. So the space was redesigned so all professional staff had an individual office, crisis averted.
Now a few weeks ago we began were able to select our furniture preferences. Depending on the size/shape of your office you had a choice of a few items -- book shelves, lateral files, some basic desk stuff. Again you would think this would be a simple enough process. The office configs are pretty much set and standardized so the new space has a nice uniform look. But now people are complaining about a lack of space, not enough file room, not enough shelf space, etc.....
To be honest this space is a huge upgrade for me. So I see anything as an improvement to the cast away furniture and space that I currently have. And I have far less STUFF than most everyone else has around here. Some of my coworkers offices look like rat's nests. But it never ceases to amaze me at the ability of many folks within my office to complain.
