So if you happen to follow me on Twitter you might have noticed yesterday morning that I was venting about how one of my coworkers scared the bejeezus out of me when came over to check on the status on a project. I startle VERY easily so it’s not hard to scare me to death I am in the zone and listening to music. I was tweaking out since I was afraid of it happening it again so I figured something would have to be done to prevent another heart attack. I didn’t want to change the configuration of my desk so I came up with a solution.
I hoped over to Amazon and ordered these nifty 1.5″ Convex Round Blind Spot Mini Safety Mirrors. Yes, these are normally used for your side mirrors to reduce your blind spot but I figured they would do. A little Amazon Prime Overnight Upgrade and ta-da (!!) I had them this morning and put them into use today.
So now when someone approaches from the main hall I can see them coming and not jump out of my seat when tapped on the shoulder.
This one handles the back approach from the small aisle at the end of our desks.
I need to get some of that tacky poster tape to better adhere them in place on my monitors but so far so good.
