Where they don't want anything on your desk hardly WHILE you're sitting there. Dumbest rule ever

And we get in trouble if any of our drawers are open, or if we have too much things on our desk while we are at our desks

Do you have dumb rules like this at your job?

We have a - no bags allowed policy.

I bring a small bag of meds which was ok'd by my boss.

I only think it's stupid because I need my meds at work.

I have a clean your classroom every Friday rule. A boss did it years ago and I kept it. I enjoy it every Monday morning.

You need stuff out To do the work so that seems crazy.

I hope they have a system that support paperless work stations then.

Omg wow. Heck no we don't have a rule like that. My desk is a mess 80% of the time. I don't have a big enough desk or storage. I sit next to my boss. If it bothers him he doesn't say anything.

My desk is usually covered from 8:15-4:45. Only reason it does not stay that way is because I have sensitive information. Desk is clean at the end of the day.

If I were in a more open area, then I would be more worried about things on my desk. But since I rearranged my desk for security issues I don't have that issue anymore.
