Imagine sharing an office with someone who has a problem with your kids' drawings and family pictures. That's what our 27-year-old mom of five is dealing with. She shares an office with a man in his 50s, and while her side of the office is adorned with her children's artwork and family photos, his side is bare, save for a diploma and a clock. When he starts demanding she remove her personal items, she's faced with a dilemma: stand her ground or cave to his demands? 🤔

Office Showdown: Mom vs. Coworker 🥊
So, we have a mom who loves displaying her kids' artwork and family photos in her office, but her coworker is demanding she remove them, claiming it makes the office look unprofessional. Despite the company policy allowing personal items, he's adamant that her side of the office looks like a circus! 🎪 Even another coworker sides with him, saying that sharing an office with her is damaging his reputation. But our mom isn't backing down, with her husband supporting her decision. As she faces pregnancy and COVID concerns, she wonders if her coworker is just sexist and hates kids. What do you think about this office showdown? 🤔
