Let’s face it: coworking rocks. Working in a space that’s flexible and conforms to your needs makes your job something you love to do rather than what you need to do. Unfortunately, not everyone has it this way. Corporate workers spend all day underneath fluorescent lights, drink terribly bitter coffee, and make up rows upon rows of gray-ish cubicles. Eek!
We compiled a list of tweets from people who really, really need a coworking space, like…right now. Sit back, sip your Irving Farm coffee or Mem Tea, and enjoy.
I hate my job. The work sucks. The people suck. The pay sucks.

Show up at noon and leave at 4 p.m. We won’t tell.
I hate corporate lingo. Stuff like "core competency" or "design out the problem" or "I'm gonna need you to go ahead and do some work today"

It’s hard to hate your life at Grind, where the coffee and snacks are free and collaboration is constantly flowing.

Some people just want some damn peace and quiet! Grind NoMad has plenty of quiet areas for introverted entrepreneurs.
Coworker: Why didn't you decorate for Halloween?
Me: I did, see my cubicle has a corpse in it and is haunted by my dead aspirations.

We follow a strict no cubicles rule around here!
If you’re working past 5 o’clock you’ll be happy to know that we have an assortment of drinks available in the cafe. Go ahead, no one’s judging.
Don't you just hate it when you arrive at work and realise you've forgotten to bring your will to live?

As we like to say, love what you do or do something else.

An unmentioned perk of coworking: work when YOU want.
