Before I quit my office job to work from home and earn an income through blogging I had a job in an office with the open concept and I would be sitting right next to another employee who I hated.
He was rude, obnoxious and plain annoying to me and I couldn't concentrate while sitting next to him and I kept making a lot of mistakes.
I was so glad to be out of there.
I hate not having privacy either when working in an open concept office and I do better work when I'm not sitting next to someone or being closely watched over.
Open concept offices are a bad idea in my opinion and I missed my cubicle after they got rid of them for the open office.
I used to hate the cubicle but after a few days in the open office I wanted my cubicle back.
