1 ThePolecats 1 month ago Just curious about this because I work 11:00 PM to 7:30 AM at a hospital in Radiology. I'm a Radiology Tech. We have no ER here and no Outpatients come in at night, so I do X-Rays on Inpatients and it's not a lot at night, so if I wanted I could probably play guitar here. In fact, a co-worker who just left us had worked a different shift than mine and we would overlap at times, brought his friend's guitar here to work. He had a lot of downtime after a certain time on weekends. He was learning guitar on a Yamaha acoustic. I could probably do the same. Although I'm pretty tired here at night I could use this time to learn more about guitar. I've been playing on and off since I was 14 and now I'm 51 but I'm no pro, I have a lot more to learn. But the problem is fatigue at night and once in awhile some nurse or something may come by to ask me something. I could do it, the other guy did but I don't know if I'm going to.Just wondering who here does bring a guitar to work? I know if you are a pro musician then the studio and stage is your office and playing is your job, but for those of you who don't play for a living do you bring your acoustic or even electric unplugged at work?By the way, I used to work with Rosey Grier. He used to bring his guitar to work. We worked at a non-profit. I was in IT and he did, well not sure. He got paid like anyone else but it was a charity. He showed me a few things on guitar. He was friends with Bobby Womack, who also taught him some things on guitar. Rosey is genuinely a nice guy and I wish I kept in touch with him. So he closed his door and played his acoustic.At a law firm I used to work at when I was in IT, if I bought a guitar or amp off eBay or if a friend sent me a guitar via a shipping company I'd have it delivered to work. The people in my department were intrigued by my musical equipment although most the time it was not so expensive or rare, but what did they know, they didn't play guitar? Actually anyone in the firm who saw it was. Better to ship it there than have it sit outside the front door to be taken by a wicked person. At times I did have stuff shipped to home and I'd run home during "break" and bring it in. My break may be 2 hours depending on traffic but I didn't care nor did anyone else as long as we had coverage, but after a while I smarted up and got stuff shipped to work's mailroom. Now that I work in this hospital I'd not have anything shipped here but have it on hold at UPS or whatever shipping company that I got it shipped via. What's your story on playing at work or shipping to work?
