Apparently a messy office isn’t quirky or endearing

So I’ve spent the better part of Saturday afternoon cleaning my office at work.


Despite the sign on my office door which reads (and in which I firmly believe): “A cluttered desk is a sign of genius” opinion seems to have turned against my, uhh, unique filing system (i.e.: piles on floor, desk, and any flat surface).

We’re having a provincial health and safety inspector visit in the next little while and I gather my office is considered neither “healthy” nor “safe” in its current state.

I don’t mind cleaning up so we’re not fined or something, but I’m just disappointed no one appreciates clutter like I do. It took me years to get my office this messy…
