I had a severe penile laceration and a sprained wrist this summer. Guess which one hurt more.

 ???  Not to make light, but ... I guess the question hangs in the air of how ...

I am curious so I looked agile workspaces up.   This article provided a broad overview of pros and cons. https://www.zenefits.com/blog/agile-workspace-small-businesses/

 An article from Harvard Business Review about how to foster employee enthusiasm for the type of workspace.  From your comments so far, it sounds like your company could have done better.
https://hbr.org/2018/01/sgc-research-when-moving-to-an-open-office-plan-pay-attention-to-how-your-employees-feel

"an agile office also operates on tenets that workers need both open, collaborative time with coworkers as well as quiet, more private areas to individually focus on and execute projects."

Actually that sums it up, and the zenefits article was pretty concise.  The dumb part is that 'agile' is not to be confused with 'Agile', which is a new practice and maybe even the 20-years-later iteration of Japan's Total Quality Management style, and something I am excited about.  But they have common elements.

The new space I'm moving into at work is 'agile' but doesn't fit with 'Agile' practices.

Horrible bike accident where I landed well but the force of landing essentially tore it half off.
It was a trick question about which hurt more. The sprained wrist still hurts but the pain between injuries was incomparable. Full-out loss of consciousness pain, which I didn't think was possible.
The nurse was very nice though. She even called me "sweetheart" and " love" while dressing my wound. I guess she knew it was safe that I wouldn't be trying to do anything with it for a while.

Truly cringeworthy. Hope everything is back functioning properly.

Yes, the urologist was excellent. Didn't make the many, many stitches hurt any less though.

Sounds like a company where I might want to work.

It was the best place I ever worked. Because we had an absentee manager and were left alone. Unfortunately, we mistakenly hired a term who was a drug user. When we moved to fire her she complained of harassment. Senior management ran away as far and fast as they could, and instead hired an outside firm to investigate. What they found was there was no harassment, and even if the things she claimed were true, that wasn't harassment. But at the same time they said we were acting immature, and violating multiple HR policies related to workplace conduct. She was fired. We got a zealous manager who reminded everyone of 'the pointy haired manager' on Dilbert (only female), and fun disappeared. Within a year everyone was gone, and that unit's effectiveness plummeted.

Sorry. Be thankful I didn't share the photo I took while waiting for the specialist.

You don't have a sprained ankle. And you didn't burn the thumb on your right hand while distracted by your ankle and don't have a burn blister on it...

I could show you the picture I took. Then you could at least be thankful you're not that ****.
I suggest mushrooms, which always make you happy. It's the next frontier of legalization (and would actually even make more sense to legalize over cannibis). Don't get drunk though. Nothing worse than a sad drunk.
