Employees Are Walking Into Panes Of Class At Apple's New HQ
It's very rare that anything will equal the nerves that you feel on your first day at work.
As you make your way to your new place of work, rather than thinking about how you can make a good first impression or how to hit the ground running, your mind will be consumed by the overwhelming fear of failure; manifesting itself in the image of you dropping your lunch on your boss as your pants fall down to reveal Barney the dinosaur boxers. Or something just as embarrassing.
So, imagine walking up to work and instead of walking through the front door, you walk straight into the fucker. That's what's happened to a number of employees at Apple's new headquarters.
It wasn't necessarily anyone's first day on the job, but it's still unbelievably embarrassing.
Apple's new gaff looks as if it's one of those pretentious places designed by someone who constantly wears a beanie, drinks a Grande, iced, sugar-free, vanilla latte with soy milk and plays Jai Alai in their spare time because it's 'the ultimate rush'. It's called 'Spaceship Campus' and is a circular building mainly made up of glass, basically.
According to Market Watch the new HQ for the tech giant, based in Silicon Valley, is so immaculately clean that people can't tell when they're about to walk into a pane of glass, whether that may be a wall or a door.
It's not even as if people are just bumping into these panels, they're actually injuring themselves; so much so that people have reported the incidents.
Market Watch reports that emergency services have been called on one or two occasions to treat employees who have presumably headbutted a panel by accident.
They also report that California law, rather hilariously, requires that "employees shall be protected against the hazard of walking through glass by barriers or by conspicuous durable markings."
As of yet there's been no comments about the injuries inflicted by stagnant objects around the new HQ, as Apple tend to keep a tight lid of this type of shit.
I mean, tight bastards - how much are they selling their phones for these days? Get some friggin' doors.
