    With all the germs left behind in a standard ball pit, I’m surprised sick leave hasn’t tripled.

    Bleeb seems to be enjoying it. He kind of blends in.

    I don’t think I see the improvement – stay home “sick” and not work, or stay at work and…not work.

    Productivity has not improved (yet) … but they do seem to be happier and more satisfied.

    The lady just climbing out looks like there might have been some hanky-panky going on underneath the balls…

    When they get bored with that they can introduce mud wrestling. Then jello, then warm oil…

    If anything, sick leave will go up. There’s a reason why McD took out their ball pits.

    How about a marijuana break room? People will show up to work every day.

    But injury days have increased. I see one that’s feet up that’s probably ready for the emergency room.

    If you’re having a ball at work… you tend to stick around!

    Mind you, ball pits are full of bacteria so it might cause more sick days. But it’s a cartoon so it doesn’t matter!
