I was also surprised to find that I strongly preferred glossy screens. Yes, there are more reflections, but working indoors - and even with a window right next to me - I really don't see any. Sure, if I actively look, my eyes refocus and I see my lamp in the corner behind me, but it hasn't been anywhere near the problem I was afraid it might be. And this is switching from four years on a matte MacBook Pro to a new glossy MacBook Pro.
Unless you're going to be outdoors a lot, I'd go glossy. Sorry the submitters particular environment doesn't work, but I don't think it will be an issue for the majority of folks.
