    It is great to have a light atmosphere at work. I am on a painting crew with two guys and they’re like Beavis & Butthead. All day they just giggle at each other. Say yeah buddy and yeah man all day. Over and over hilarious.

    As long as the quality of work is good, having a light hearted atmosphere is fine and makes the time pass quicker.
    It is not as funny when the jokes are about painting the rooms the wrong color, or spilling a can of paint on the carpet.

    I'm very light hearted at work. Can't say that's been true of every job I've had. I feel lucky. Definitely if you can have fun at work you are lucky.

    Its great to work with folks who know how to enjoy themselves. The right work environment makes the day go by quicker. I've been fortunate enough to have had (and currently have) a job where I actually look forward to going to work. When I have had to work from home I actually have missed being in the office.

    Everyone at my job is incredibly high strung. After working there a few months i'm starting to understand why :sweatsmile: but they occassionally give us alcohol so we can relax, so that makes up for it I guess

    Nothing worse than a workplace where everyone takes themselves too seriously.

    My job is so great when everyone is being silly and in a good mood. We've had many customers tell us how jealous they are of our jobs because it seems so fun. And we work at a gas station, so it's not really a job to envy.

    During my lifetime, I have run 14 Royal film performances at which people seemed to assume that we needed to be dead serious. Nothing is further from the truth, if one of my engineers got tense, the likelihood of a mistake increased greatly.
    In my younger days, I worked in cardiac surgery and the same was true. Obviously everyone needed to concentrate closely, but tension led to confusion and an unsteady hand, both of which could have cost a patient their life.

    To me, bosses creating tension is a form of bullying. It is most common among people who are uncertain of their job and want to create a situation where no one dares to question them.

    In my line of work I work very closely with 3-5 other people. At all my locations and companies it has always been a good atmosphere. I worked with a lot of different types of people and always had fun learning about them and making jokes with em to pass the time. I've always gotten along with the people I work closely with and have considered a lot of them friends, not just co workers.

    You cannot make jokes in today's political climate. Everyone is too easily offended. You have to make resort to lame, unfunny, SJW type humor unless you want to lose your job or worse.

    That's why private enterprise is better, because then we can choose our potantial employees based on other values, like if they can take a joke or not. Not going to fit in socially, not interested. Take your college degree, back to where you came from! :D

    I once wore a white t-shirt with the words WHITE MALE in big black bold letters to work. Many in the office thought it was funny. But 2 people made anonymous reports, and I was asked not to wear it to work anymore because of safe space policies.

    My boyfriend has a shirt that says FUCKING SLAYER.

    He was wearing it once in the grocery store when we happened to notice a lot of people bring their kids to the grocery store. So out of politeness he crossed his arms across his chest but he covered up slayer instead of fucking so his shirt just said fucking

    Good times

    I did

    Some of the feminist marchers wanted selfies with me. :D

    The event volunteers were following me around like a bunch of creeps. Trying to make sure I didn't "step out of line" via attempted intimidation tactics.
