Messy Desk

How messy is your desk at work (or in your home office)? Admit it.

Today, I had “clean my desk day” because quite a bit of dust-n-crumbs had accumulated since the last such day. I gave my keyboard a good shaking and used disinfectant wipes on all the surfaces I come in contact with. Things feel much cleaner.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to eating my PB and J over my keyboard.

Messy in terms of food? Not at all. That’s just gross (sorry).

Messy in terms of dust? Some corners and hard-to-get-to places, sure, but not the active surfaces.

Messy in terms of papers, pens, and stickie notes? Oh, yeah. I have notes from years ago that I can no longer decypher, but save just in case I one day realize it was the secret of the universe and my handwriting was just sloppy.

Bad, very bad at home.

At work one of my co-workers left me a note on a stack of papers and told me to deal with them today. I am a clutter-magnet.

My desk is usually pretty clean except for when my co-workers move random stuff into my cube, like a table for instance, boxes of cables and other junk.

I hate messy desks – hate. My work desk is pretty clean overall but a couple of method wipes wouldn’t hurt any.

What is this then?
