Annoying Coworker Ailment

There are many issues endured by businesspeople, entrepreneurs and remote workers who are attempting to establish their company, complete their work, or run their business from the kitchen table instead of using a private office, virtual office, or shared space (coworking).


Today’s Public Service Announcement is regarding the scourge of Annoying Coworker Ailment (ACA) suffered by these hard-working business people. This severe condition is experienced when two or more of their coworkers (also known as their spouse, partner, children or pets) are “working” in the same shared space, that is, their kitchen, bedroom or family room.


Music, loud conversations, the television, running the blender or the microwave, dogs barking and absent-minded singing and humming are all manifestations of ACA.


The symptoms of ACA include, but are not limited to: an urge to yell at their coworkers; pounding their head on the table in frustration; earplugs; suggesting alternative (sometimes inappropriate) locations for them to conduct their “business”; silent screaming; and of course, giving up and taking a nap instead.


But not all is lost. There are options available to the budding entrepreneur.



Flexible workspaces such as private offices, virtual offices, coworking and shared spaces are available in most communities around the nation and at a variety of price points. And often those options are available on a part-time basis so new businesses and businesspeople can work their way into an arrangement that works for them, their budget and overall comfort. And still have a professional, business-like location to call home and get some work done.


Flexible office space and virtual offices can be the answer to curing ACA – avoid ACA and all the adverse symptoms of enduring too much contact with your “coworkers”. Get some office space of your own – whatever form that takes. No more ACA!
