At BlogMTL, we’re 9-2-5ers. And although we have the coolest office on the Main (the Main is also known as Saint-Laurent blvd (“blvd” stands for boulevard (boulevard is French for Boulevard))), there’s always unspoken rules you need to remind to the newest intern. We’re not assholes, we just don’t like a lot of things. Especially things that are different or that we don’t know about. Ew. Oh, and we’re not aiming at anyone specific, St?phanie.
6: Avoid high heels
Although high heels are very sexy, we think nobody should wear this in an office space. Ever heard high heels hit the concrete floor of a loft? We hear it everyday. It bashes our eardrums and forces us turn our heads around.
5: Don’t talk on your cellphone next to people
Right??? Everyone’s hearing your conversation and we can barely understand what you’re saying because you’re speaking French.
4: Don’t stare at people
People don’t always know each other in the office and looks tend to stick when an editor is a total QT. It’s not annoying when the girl is hot, but when she’s a 7, I mean, come on. Get back to work!
3: Don’t send us Vines every 2 minutes
That dude makes the funniest faces ever, yeah, but we all follow him and we refresh our Vine feed systematically every 5 minutes to Lync each other our reactions. We’ve seen it. Put it on your Facebook wall or something.
2: Leaving the coffee cold
Oh my god, who would do such a thing? Well, SOME of our interns do. Seriously, it’s a COLD thing to do (pun TOTALLY intended). Turn that machine back on, for P’s sake! Warm-ish coffee is SO not MTL.
1: NEVER — EVER heat tuna in the micro-wave
The micro-wave is the best invention ever since sliced-bread. We know. Pop that tupperware in and make it beep! Bam, your foods ready. But now, everyone can smell what you’re about to eat. Oh my goodness! What are you eating?! Have you washed before coming in to work or are you eating a rotten vag’ salad dipped in dumpster ooze?! Jesus FUCK! Evacuate the building.
