Office Moshpit

Today after work, I went over to the gym in the next building that's free for all of the local cube dwellers. When I came back to the office, I had my headphones in my ears with Bad Religion blaring way too loud. They've been doing a lot of construction on my floor lately, including the removal of a great many walls, leaving behind a huge open area that will probably house even more cubes in the days to come. I was walking through this giant open area with my music going, and I suddenly had this incredibly clear vision of a moshpit full of my coworkers right there in the middle of the office floor, all of them dressed just as they do on any normal workday. It lasted for all of a second and then it was gone. Even the volume of the music seemed slightly lower as I walked back to my desk.

I know I mentioned a couple of posts back that it'd be nice to live in a kinder world, and it would. But I also like the idea of a world where moshpits occasionally break out in the middle of cube farms.

incredible clear visions eh?

You know you can get pills for that.

It's always seemed to me that crazier the pit the more polite people tend to be, albeit while bumping into you. It's those Indie Rock shows you have to worry about, those kids are all dicks.

I tried getting into a moshpit at... Suicidal Tendencies? years ago, and my friends' older brother kept lifting me out of it.
Damn him.
