Email to my coworking place about proper protocol in regards to dirty mugs. August 27, 2022.


Greetings Coworking,

I love coworking, it’s the best office offering ever.

First and foremost, your team that keeps the offices clean is amazing. Anytime they need to clean when I’m at one of your locations I immediately move out of the way to make sure they can operate without having to work around me.

I treat the cleaning/maintenance team with the utmost respect at all times as I treat the rest of your team and all non coworking building staff.

It’s obvious that the whole coworking staff is doing a stellar job supporting the members in every way imaginable.

Quick question. I just arrived at X location.

I’m guessing a few members didn’t realize that there is an area where the used mugs are supposed to be placed. Of course, I would never mention that to a wework customer/client/member in person.

I mostly keep to myself at the coworking space and everywhere for that matter. Instead, I just put the few mugs on the counter into the used mug container.

In the future what is the proper procedure for a member such as myself to do if I see a few used mugs left in the wrong place?

Should I just leave them where they are or is it OK for me to carefully place them in the correct container for used mugs?

Also, thank you all again for providing the incredible platform that is your coworking.

Having coworking spaces to work makes work a lot more pleasurable. I’m a Baruch College student and I’m working on startups.

Coworking is improving the quality of all my work.

Please advise regarding the mugs when you are available.

I will continue to sing your praises to everyone I meet.

Thank you again and have a great day.
