Your Office Might be Boring, Unless there are Some Latinos, Here’s Why

Working in an office with where the majority of employees are Latinos is… kind of the best work environment imaginable. With mariachis in the office, jokes you can finally tell in Spanish and the food, work feels more like a cousin’s birthday party than actual work because…

It Starts with the Saludo

You can’t get away with running to your desk and pretending you don’t see everyone…that’ll get you the death stare, like the one mom gave you when you didn’t say hi to aaaall your tías y tíos.

It doesn’t stop there. Every executive office has a stocked mini bar.

The Smells During Lunchtime are Like…

Because everyone brings home-cooked meals enchiladas, mofongo, even ceviche. None of that basic sandwich sh*t.

Everyone. Is. So. Loud.

And this includes carcajadas at all hours of the day because the jokes are nonstop.

You’re Never Sure What Language People are Speaking

One minute it’s English, then it switches to Spanish, then Spanglish and before the conversation’s over you’re hearing words you never knew existed. Does anyone know what chincual means? ?

Cursing is a Natural Thing

There’s Always a Reason to Celebrate

And mariachis in the office are not a rare occurrence.

Basically, it’s one big party and we still get sh*t done.
