This dream seemed to start out at a McDonald's or some such fast food restaurant. I was being trained by one of the managers to clock in using one of the old-fashioned punch clocks. I think I was going to be able to go on my break afterwards. However, the process was so complicated that I just kept getting more and more frustrated. I was on the verge of crying, I was so pissed off. I think there was some sort of expectation that I was going to go into management and I was trying to keep my frustration to myself so as not to jeopardize that. I don't know that I ever figured out the time card thing.
The next part of the dream I was in this weird, outdoorish place and there were a bunch of us, all lined up like cadavers in this wooden pen that was broken up into smaller compartments. At this point in the dream it felt like slavery or some sort of servitude, at least. I think there was a hierarchy of rooms, some like hotel suites and others for people like "us" and we were there to work something off, maybe.
Anyway, at one point, I was trying to find the bathroom, both to relieve myself and also to take a shower. I was given directions as to where it should have been, but couldn't find it or it was occupied. I remember pausing on the stairs and realizing that I knew some one in one of the "hotelish" rooms and thought of asking him if he would let me use it instead of wandering aimlessly trying to find a non-existent bathroom.
These dreams all seemed to be about frustrating circumstances from which there was no escape.

The point signifies unity, the Origin and the Centre. It also represents
the principles of manifestation and emanation, and hence in some mandalas the
centre is not actually shown but must be imagined by the initiate. There are two
kinds of point to be considered: that which has no magnitude and is symbolic of
creative virtue, and that which—as suggested by Raymond Lull in his Nova
Geometria—has the smallest conceivable or practicable magnitude and is a symbol of the principle of manifestation. Moses of Leon defined the nature of the
original Point as follows: ‘This degree is the sum total of all subsequent mirrors,
that is, of all external aspects related to this one degree. They proceed therefrom
because of the mystery of the point, which is in itself an occult degree emanating
from the mystery of the pure and awe-inspiring ether. The first degree of all is
absolutely occult, that is, not manifest, and cannot be attained’ (25). This explains why the Centre—identical with the mystic point of Moses of Leon—is
usually represented as a hole.

Rooms in dreams, much like in waking life, are a way to compartmentalize aspects of our lives. We undertake certain tasks in certain rooms, for instance we sleep in a bedroom, work in an office room and cook in a kitchen.
In dreams different types of rooms represent different aspects of our subconscious, or symbolize thoughts connected with whatever we connect that type of room with in waking life. So, for instance, a kitchen in a dream may represent sustenance, cooking and eating, or even family gatherings - depending on how you use your kitchen in waking life.
Furthermore, the state of the room in your dream can tell you something about the message it is trying to convey, i.e. kitchen dreams may be telling you to eat more or eat less, or eat differently, depending on how it appears in your dream.
Discovering a new room in your dream could represent discovering a new part of your subconscious, a new aspect of yourself that you haven't explored before, an aspect that your subconscious thinks that you should explore.
