I recently went to the eye doctor, and got myself some nice glasses. They are great, and I paid for all the goodies. Non glare, etc.
I have a coworker whose desk is over my left shoulder directly against the window. I had shut the blinds a bit ( you could still see out, just not wide opened ) because the sunlight coming in reflects a good bit and it makes it difficult to see.
The way my workspace is configured, it is too small for me to put my PC and monitors anywhere else so the only option for me to see clearly and be productive is for the blinds to be closed somewhat to cut out the glare.
This, to my surprise has aggravated my co-worker a bit. I explained the situation, showed how I was limited as to where I could put my monitors and PC, yet he still seemed irritated. We are at capacity so moving cubes is not an option.
How can I make certain he knows I am only doing this for work purposes and not attempting to intrude on his work space? Before this incident we had no issues, and even this one is not huge.
