Working in a messy open plan office

    The office area is filled with gardening stuff (it's a gardening company) and theres a lawnmower beside my desk (!) and power tools etc, it's only because there's been lots of thefts and theres no where else to keep them safe. It's hard to be organised with so much mess and chaos around me. Is there anything i can do or should I just put up with it ?:rolleyes:

    I would say just put up with it. Our office is full of toys, easier to look at than power tools though I guess! :p

    To be honest I would just put up with it. As you said the tools are being stored there to keep them safe. Just keep your own work space tidy.

    Ok I guess I'll have to put up with it, hopefully they'll come up with a better place to put them (unlikely but I can only hope!) Tks

    I would come at it from a health a safety angle and mention fire hazards. You can't escape a fire if you are tripping over things. Is there any way they can clear a corner and stack everything there. That level of chaos would melt my brain!

    Can you organize it yourself? Is there a place where it could be stored safely?

    build a shed in your back garden and put them there.

    ...and any funds that the company has, park in your bank account. Refer to Father Ted if queried about money resting issues.
