That does something(s) that drive you absolutely insane?
I have an office mate who breathes so loud I can barely stand it. It is like, sh*t, get this guy an oxygen mask. Also, he hits the keys on the keyboard harder than Tawny Kitaen hit Chuck Finley.
Yeah, I had one that would use the network printer to print her 'christian' news letter. I use 'christian' loosely because essentially is was mostly anti-gay.
I also have another who whistles the whole time, drives me nuts.
Yes, a good few. Basically because they have some 'power' at work and flaunt it to make my life hell.
Oh and one of my office-mates has a very bad cough which is bloody irritating and talks way too loud on the phone...
My husband is my co-worker and sometimes my boss. Sucks big time sometimes when marital issues get thrown into work duties! And he knows nothing about computers, but if I can't fix a problem in a matter of minutes, he asks me if we should take it somewhere. It's because I'm Christian that he's still alive, murder is a sin!
Edit: And I forgot to mention about the comments about playing on the computer all day!
And here we go.....
He's a lucky man and probably doesn't know how close he has come to death.
And I would venture to say, for many of us, our significant other as well.
I want to see iGary's inevitable post. Things would be easier if he was more willing to kill when necessary.
This may be the beginning of his justifying it in his mind.
Yes, I have a keyboard slapper, too.
No whistling or Christian BS here, but one person who uses the color printer for EVERYTHING because they are too lazy to switch printers for different jobs.
I have one of those as well. Doesn't help that she smokes 15-20 cigarettes in our usual 8:30 to 5 shift, either.
No co-workers here, just my son in the other room playing WoW incessantly... I can't WAIT for school to start!
The talkers. They sit behind me. One on vacation means peace. Thursday the pain resumes.
A guy sitting in my vicinity spends his "free" time playing an online game. Drives me nuts knowing that he has tons to learn (he is new to the team), and that there really is not free time.
I have a lady that VPN's into her home computer and pays her bills and balances her Quicken from her work computer. Usually an hour a day.
Wow, I've heard of people VPNing into the office, but never out of it. An hour a day, how many bills can one person have??
The major problem with my coworkers is they are all technophobes and they know I'm a techno-genius so they always ask me to fix things rather than calling IT support.
I work on my own and half the time I drive myself potty. I'd like to give myself a piece of my mind but I'm too scared of the repercussions. If only I had a swift half before hand
When you work in a place with 140 people, you have all kinds. Some of my favorites...
the guy who clips his nails at his desk.
the water drinker who can't drink without making all kinds of noises.
the nose picker. you work in a cubicle, we can all see you digging deep.
oh yea I have a few that drives me absolutely insane... Only if I had the ability to move people into other departments it would make me the happiest person the planet. But, till then, I get to put up the the idiotic moves and lazy-man's work.
Paul (An Associate): Doesn't want to cross the t's and dot the i's cause he think its a waste of time to complete everything. Even if it creates more work for me. Also, when I delegate tasks to him he either simply doesn't do it or does a half ass job of it.
Melissa (An Associate): She dresses like a little tramp going to a strip club ...
Joe (The merchandiser): He throws a hissy fit because people tell him that he isn't doing his job...I would love it if he were to purchase the out-of-stock merchandise that I have on the floor ... that will never happen.
I am a Lead and I put up with a lot of these little idiotic things day to day...
Anyways, I will leave it at that I got a few more but that would take all day...
One of my coworkers (who sits in the cube right next to me) has been trying to broker a house or something. I have to bring my iPod or I'd go crazy if I had to listen to him gab on the phone 4 hours at a time for this.
And the kicker is when he hangs up he sometimes makes comments about how slammed we are... but how could he know?
Sometimes I wish I were management. This place could use a good fat trimming.
One guy in my office constantly comes to work in his PJ's, comes & goes as he pleases, and works with his cat on his lap or the table next to him. I've even seen him at his computer with a beer in the middle of the day! I mean, come on already!
Wait. That's me. Never mind...
Is she hot?
Yes!!! THAT ONE TOO! OMG, I feel like going over there and smacking whoever does it. Like take care of that personal hygiene BEFORE you make it to the office.
Not so much... But it is supposed to be a professional work environment.
Well if she was hot I wouldn't mind it so much....
You hit the nail on the head. Most issues are because people don't realize you have to be professional at work, they thing it is just another party place.
