Pimp Your Work

Disruptive Workplace Experiences

by Scot Herrick on December 4th, 2006

Here’s the simple question: What’s the most unusual workplace disruption you’ve experienced?

There are all sorts of distractions, of course. But then, there are disruptions.

My worst disruptions have been pretty simple: fire alarms and earthquake drills. Evacuating a building and practicing diving under your cubicle isn’t exactly Pimp Level disruptions. So I thought I’d ask our loyal readers to describe their most unusual work disruptions so we could see the range of unproductive work we do.

What’s the most unusual workplace disruption you’ve experienced?

    New instructor demo’s are the worst for me when I was still working as an academic lab tech.

    Tornado Warning and tornado drill. Yeah, I’ve been through bomb threats, etc, but the tornado ones are strange. Everyone has to get into the stairwell.
