Places to cry

Jun 11, 2020 | office space, sexism

As a woman working in games, there have been so many times when I’ve been sad and angry and frustrated at work. I don’t like to show “negative” emotions in front of my teams or reports (so I’m not seen as “too emotional”), so I’ve found the best places to cry at work where I can let it out without being disturbed.

Some of those places are:

  • The women’s bathroom (since there are so few people to use it)
  • The office supplies cabinet
  • The server room (plus it’s warm in there)
  • The windowless meeting room that is the least likely to be used
  • My car in the parking lot
