Perhaps these cats demonstrating the six phases of work can actually be found at a call center in some far off land….

Phase 1

Phase 1

Phase 1

Phase 1: You are listening to jazz
Your first day at work is great. Your co-workers are wonderful, your office is cute.
You love your boss, and your president is the best!

 

Phase 2

Phase 2

Phase 2

Phase 2: You are listening to pop music
After a while, you are  so busy that you are not sure if you’re coming or going anymore.
   
Phase 3

Phase 3

Phase 3

Phase 3: You are listening to heavy metal
This is what happens after about SIX Months! 

 Phase  4

Phase 4

Phase 4

Phase 4: You are listening to hip hop
You become bloated due to stress. You’re gaining weight due to lack of exercise because you are so tired and have so much work to do and when  you get home you have more work to do. You feel sluggish and suffer from constipation. Your fellow co-workers are too cheerful for your liking and the walls of your cubicle are closing  in. 

Phase 5

Phase 5

Phase 5

Phase 5: You are listening to GANGSTA RAP
 
After more time passes, your eyes start to twitch.
You forget what a “good hair day” feels like as you just fall out of bed and load up on caffeine.
 

Phase 6

Phase 6

Phase 6

Phase 6: You are listening to the voices in your head
You have built a makeshift door on your cubicle to keep people out. You have a dartboard with your boss’s picture on it in your cube. You wonder why you are even here in the first place.
Many thanks to Cathy Aste for passing this along.
