Staff Room Revelations

Updated on February 12, 2012

The Staff Room

The staff room is the place that holds the key to the many mysteries of life, you will find that it is not just a place to rest and have a coffee but it can be more like a pantomime sometimes with people dropping in and making entrances, sometimes just to sit and gossip about customers or colleagues, or to let their anger out, or maybe they have came back from holidays and want to show you their snapshots and photos they took. It can also be like the dressing room of a model or actress with people fixing their hair and make up as well as spraying themselves with aftershave and perfumes, but this is the one place that people do reveal alot more about themselves and talk more openly and you will gain insight in to their problems. You see being a sales assistant or any kind of job you will find that your colleagues will ask your opinions on their problems, and in the staff room you become a mixture of roles such as Cleaner, Counsellor, Doctor, Fashion Model, Fireman and Teacher because your colleagues will talk to you. Without realizing you will pass on your knowledge and own experiences in a way to help others who are going through the same troubles as you may have gone through or are going through yourself, and by doing this it makes you part of the team and gives you a sense of involvement and pride because you have helped them and they asked your opinion.

      donnaisabella hi that sounds like a harsh memory lol its the law now here in the uk almost every employer has to provide a staff room but most people may refer to it as a canteen. I learned an awful lot in the staff room I have to admit - real life is found in the most unlikely places :)

      I remember giving punishment to my friend and vice versa by order of our teacher in the teacher's staff room when I was in 9th grade. Some memories sure do stick. I did not know that places other than schools have staff rooms. Interesting.

      Hi Joy56 been a long time since I heard from you, how are you doing? Our staff room is tiny but it has a great atmosphere to it, plus when people come in and out you see a lot of life and dramas plus you learn loads too :)

      Thanks for commenting :)
