Before you call HR to complain about how co-workers can bring their golden retrievers and tabby cats to your financial services office, but everyone gives you dirty looks about the time you brought a shrieking macaw to that important client presentation, read this guide to understand once and for all why it’s probably best to leave your porcupines, giraffes, and iguanas at home:
To be clear, some pets won’t even try to adapt to your workspace.
Coworkers may not appreciate animals that cuddle them first.
Try filing a claim when you’ve got “helpful” pets like this one in the office…
Keep in mind that taking a pet to work is NOT an excuse to use the carpool lane!
Personal space is a foreign concept for many animals.
They just can’t understand that the doughnut holes in the breakroom are for everyone.
Just because you understand your weirdo pet, doesn’t mean that everyone else will.
Many animals just don’t do “friendly” customer support.
If only one person brings in their weird pet, everyone in the office will bring theirs…
And when they do, who knows if they will all get along?
It’s hard to schedule and keep appointments when it’s this easy to sleep on the job.
But most importantly, a clever pet may learn how to file claims better than you ever could!
