Office

If you think having an office will stop all your complaints and you will be happy, you are mistaken.  It's amazing how people with their own office still find things to complain about.  I am just as guilty.  I remember when I was sharing an office with one other person, I was complaining about not having my own office.  And when I got my own office, I remember complaining about getting a bigger office.  When I got a bigger office, I remember complaining about not having a window office.  Isn't it strange how the complaints never end?  Let's see some of the sentences for this section.

"Why is Jack's office so much bigger than mine?"
"I'm next in line for a window office.  How come you gave it to Paul?"

"There is an empty office across the hall.  Can I have it?"

"It's great having my own office because I can surf the Internet and take a real break anytime I want."

"The privacy is probably the best thing about having my own office.  I can't image working in a cubicle again."

A common phrase you might hear from you manager is to come to their office.

"Can you stop by my office?"
"Stop by my office when you get a chance."
"Let's meet in my office."

If you want to stop by someone's office, you can say this.

"Can I stop by your office after lunch?"
"Can I come by your office now?"
"Can we talk in your office?"
