Dog Friendly Office Gets Literally No Work Done
NEW YORK - Online publication, Daily Rustle, recently began allowing the staff to bring dogs into the office, leading to a complete halt in productivity, as all employees are constantly distracted by said dogs, sources indicate.
“How can we be expected to get anything done when there’s cute doggos running about?!” commented lead editor, Gennifer Harris. “Like, I like to employ this open door policy, where I literally leave my office door open all the time to encourage open communication, but now I just get cute doggies running around all day. What do you want from me? I’m not an emotionless cyborg. How can one not pet them and rub their bellies and play with them and talk to them?!”
The office’s new policy came about when someone brought their dog out of necessity and the staff collectively agreed there should be more of this.
“I brought my dog in because the walker cancelled, but we have deadlines here, so there wasn’t really too much option on short notice,” mentioned junior copywriter Sara Kenny. “It’s a very relaxed environment, so everyone was fine with it, but I think I started a chain reaction that might put this place out of business. It’s probably worth it though to get to hang with all these good pups!”
Technically there was never a rule against bringing cats, but the one cat person in the office has been too afraid to bring up the subject, and thus continues to hide her true nature.
