You’re not wrong.
We work in the most dilapidated office I have ever known. We have had several floods, the toilets are always breaking, the kitchen fuses are constantly blowing and even the ceiling lights barely work. I overheard a manager talking the other day saying that the lights need to be replaced as a member of staff is threatening not to come in anymore as the lack of light is causing her migraines. Apparently this staff member and her manager have been waiting for 6 months for somebody to replace the strip lighting, but it can’t be done as “they want to do it all at the same time”.

I know its been frozen, because it has the time and date it was last alive locked on the display. 09/02/17 10:01.
Its really a pleasant way to improve your working life. Heartily recommended.
It's for this reason I never give customers my mobile number anymore. I have an office phone that I only give out for business purposes and so never rings (naturally) and a Skype number I can use for other stuff that just goes to voicemail 99% of the time, that I can click to play on the computer and not have to "phone up" a voicemail system, which is retarded.
Of course I have an answer machine on the office phone as well.
I even tried Skype's voice to text service, but it never worked. The company that did it folded or something and they forgot to remove the service.
I hate my job now. I've never had a job I've particularly liked, and I've had a few that were the worst sort of hourly-paid retail shiters, but I've never felt as bad as I do now. I want out. Even though I have a 3 month work break coming up in September, unpaid mind, I just want to jack it all in right now.
It's really opened my eyes to how much I will never be happy in an office environment. I hate the routine, the thankless busy-bodying and the complete lack of anything approaching job satisfaction. I really don't think I can do it for much longer.
