It’s the holidays, and the Kristmas Muzak is in full swing. Piped into every cubicle thanks to over-zealous office managers, the noise isn’t even the worst of it – it’s the petrifying boredom and annoyance that sets in around December 1 after it’s already been playing for three weeks.
Does your office have an alternative to cheesy generic Christmas pop? Are you allowed to wear noise cancelling headphones? Better yet, do you have a cool weekend manager who turns on Mannheim Steamroller or Transiberian Orchestra and encourages everyone to rock out for a while?
Let us know your thoughts on overall office music, especially around the holidays. Should your workplace be booming with so-called “good cheer” or should mandated auditory enhancements be kept to a minimum?
Tell us what your favorite (or least favorite) Christmas song is, while you’re at it – and why. We really, really want to know.
