Email to the coworking place I belong to on December 25, 2022.


Greetings coworking,

I love coworking, it’s my favorite coworking in New York City.

I’m on the X floor of X location in Midtown West on December 25, 2022 at 5 PM.

I understand that not everyone is going to respect coworking like most of the members do.

Some people leave their belongings and garbage all over the place.

I would never say a word to anyone about it including your members and even staff at the locations.

I only mention it to corporate here.

Your customer service is stellar by the way 🙂

There are 3 booths on the X floor.

1 both has someone sitting there.

The other booth has had someones things on the table all day since this morning.

The final booth has a sweatshirt on it since this morning.

I moved the sweatshirt so I can sit down to a nearby counter that can easily be seen.

If a person comes back and says they are sitting at this booth I will gladly move.

I don’t feel comfortable ever touching anything that isn’t mine although the sweatshirt hasn’t moved for 7 or 8 hours so I think it will be OK.

There is also garbage on the floor by the elevator.

There is also someone’s phone next to the sink since this morning.

Another person left a note pad on another table hours ago and I placed it on the ledge next to the sweatshirt.

Please fill me in on any additional protocol because I want to follow the rules 1000 percent perfectly and be a positive addition to your community.

Specifially what is the policy if it’s after hours and someone hasn’t been seen for hours and has left their belongings and garbage for several hours in a common area that is blocking other members from sitting.

If you say don’t touch it, of course, I won’t move it.

I hope you have 1000 locations in New York City one day soon.

The coworking team, strategy, and software is amazing.

Please advise.

Thank you and have a great day.

Email to my coworking place about a polite interaction with the cleaning staff in Midtown West on December 23, 2022.


Greetings coworking,

I love coworking.

Today is December 23, 2022. It’s about 8:40 PM.

I was on the fifth floor at X location in the kitchen area.

A member of your staff said they need to clean the floors. Specifically, mop the floor.

I politely and respectfully said, of course, I’ll move and went into a phone booth.

Usually, the phone booths say 30 minutes, this one says 1 hour.

In about 30 minutes or so, I’ll just go to another floor if the person is still cleaning.

I just wanted to let you know that I always treat your staff and facilities with the utmost respect at all times.

Your team does a stellar job running the places.

I always put my garbage and dirty cups in the designated areas.

I would never say anything to anyone, although I see a number of people make a mess and not clean up after themselves. That is why I go above and beyond to clean up after myself and make sure that I create the least amount of work possible for your excellent team.

I tell everyone I speak with that they should look into your coworking offerings.

I’m not concerned about referral fees; I just love the service you provide.

Thank you and have a great day.

Mark Pine
