Survey Questions About Office Etiquette

Monday was a holiday which meant I was all alone at the radio station for awhile, so I went ahead and ate a tuna fish sandwich, with my shoes off while clipping my nails and passing gas! NOT!




Here are ten questions from a recent survey on office etiquette . . .


 1.  Is it okay to play music without headphones in?  94% say it's unacceptable.  Only 6% of us are fine with it.


2.  Is it okay to eat really smelly food at your desk, like tuna?  63% say no.  37% say it's your lunch, so eat whatever you want, and they'll deal with the smell.


3.  Is it okay to take your shoes off at your desk?  56% say yes.  44% say no, never.


4.  How about clipping your nails at your desk?  93% say no.  7% say go for it.  They're probably assuming FINGERNAILS though, not toenails.  100% shouldn't do that.


5.  Is it okay to occasionally make personal phone calls at work?  51% say no.  49% say it's fine, as long as it's not all the time.


6.  Should you mute your cell phone, so it doesn't make noise all day when you get text messages?  75% say mute it.  25% don't care.


7.  Is putting your feet up on your desk acceptable?  82% say no, it's unprofessional.


8.  Is it ever okay to eat a coworker's food from the office fridge?  97% say NEVER.  3% say yes.


9.  Is it okay to PASS GAS in the office?  66% say hold it in or go somewhere else, like the bathroom.  34% say just let it rip.

It's Going to be a Chilly Winter!

What's the weather going to be like this winter? Well if you're hoping for mild and warm, you may be disappointed in the weather outlook from Al Dutcher, State Climatologist with UNL. Farmers, businessmen and others interested in what we'll see this winter came to Dutcher's presentation at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. 
Al started out his presentation by reviewing how the weather has been so far this fall and winter, and compared it to last year. This year’s La Nina event is much stronger than last year and expected to last longer.
Many people have commented on the recent stretch of dry weather we've been seeing in our region of Nebraska as of late, but Dutcher explained we received almost all of our fall precipitation during the month of October. 
Al said the La Nina pattern will keep dry conditions south of Nebraska, which will continue to expand the  drought in those areas. 
Dutcher says when looking at the La Nina event that we are currently experie…
