It's surprising that the employees of Dunder Mifflin never encountered this issue over nine seasons of The Office.
A guy got into a fight with a coworker when she insisted on having the break room to herself so she could have privacy for a therapy session. As a new father, he wanted to nap with his earphones in, but the coworker didn't accept the compromise.
He posted on "Am I The A**hole?":
Been working at this shop for 2 years. It’s been less of us since COVID. Usually only like 3 or 4 of us in the morning until late afternoon. I’ll (25M) be honest, this week was tiring as hell. I have a 5 month old son with my girlfriend and getting him to sleep has been a challenge this week. With both of us taking turns at night I’ve only gotten about 4 hours of sleep on average so today I was fucking exhausted. Just praying for my lunch break so I could head to the break room for a nap. One of my coworkers “Angela,” who usually works til closing was already there but her shift wasn’t starting for like a half hour I think. She asks me if I could take my lunch outside on the bench because she’s about to start a video call therapy session. It was 84 degrees outside today, I told her I’m tired, my baby had me up all night and honestly I’m just trying to nap so don’t worry about me hearing anything. I even showed her my headphones since I like listening to ambient music when I sleep, so really it’s not as if I was gonna listen in on her.
