Well, perhaps it wasnt the nicest thing to do, but I got my point across...Maybye nobody else will think it was funny but I cracked me up. A minute ago I was sitting here repeatedly hitting the resfresh button my browser to make that damn "server busy" message on MR go away, when a coworker came over to the desk next to mine. He's the official lab jerk, and he loves to indulge in what Churchil termed "gratuitous arguing", i.e. pushing peoples' buttons for private amusement. Whenever I'm around he loves to make stupid-*ss comments about Macs or any of the other stuff I'm interested in. Today he came over and started using the Dell Xeon workstation next to me to check his email. I'll paraphrase his speech because I never really listen closely and he says the same stuff all the time anyway: "Wow, we need a new computer, this is SO much better than that crappy Mac we have in OUR lab <giggle>". To which I respond by reminding him that his lab uses a Powermac 6100 that is 12 years old and anyway it can check email just as fast as any computer in the lab. "Yeah, but it's stupid because I can't eject floppies 'cause their's no button, I have to like use menus and stuff. It's stupid" etc. He begins copying a bunch of spreadsheet files on to a floppy as he says this. I get up from my computer (still getting that "server busy" message anyway), walk over, reach past him and eject the floppy while it's still copying. "what the hell was that?" he says. "Well, THAT woundn't have happened if you were using the crappy computer in YOUR lab, now would it?". The best part was that my boss laughed, since he doesn't like people coming over and clogging up our machines anyway.
