Sure...I was only telling ya about the annoying ones. What about the ones that wear thick ole tube socks with flats, or the one that wears their cell phone as an accessory, or the one that has lint all over herself all the time.............. is it time to go home yet!?!
Oh and lets not forget the pager that is hooked on the other side of their pants. As if the cell phone is not enough.

"Men do not return your phone calls ... simply cause they don't want to... its not that they are busy.. or there has been an accident... or he just got busy and forgot.
He is not calling you cause he didn't want to.. Its just that simple... Men with a legit interest in you... CALL when they say they will."
Please for all the people who have to sit around you... please, shut up. Asking everyone "what they think" is the reason he did not call... and then getting mad when they come to me harping about you... and all your life problems. (Can you tell I got to deal with this subject recently?) :)
And the person who talks extensively on their cell phone no matter where they are at.... I won't even allow personal cellphones turned on inside the building any longer. They have become my personal pet peeve in the last couple of years with my employees. I am not even 40 yet and I am completely cranky about the lack of basic professional behavior in the work place... :lol
My Crazy Office
Below I'm pasting a very funny e-mail exchange that recently took place FLOOR-WIDE at my huge office in downtown Boston. I laughed my head off 'cause the people involved have never been so bold as to "publicly" fight via firm-wide e-mail; it was a nice change from the usual back-stabbing, behind the scenes nastiness that they engage in as they rip each other to shreds.
I give props to "Miss Nice" for calling them all out on it.
One of these days I'll share some other stories with you about Miss Witch (the nastiest, cruelest, most destructive gossip yet one of the least competent employees in the place) 'cause being around her is one of the chief reasons that the job has utterly sucked. The fact that management has let her run rampant over her coworkers is a testimony of how much they suck, too.

Thanks for calling that to my attention. I must have thought I was at "home". Oh, but I thought this was my "home".
But, when I'm at home and I see butter on the counter, I put it in the fridge and don't tell the whole family about it. Hahahahaha

Reminder - somebody left a stick of butter/margarine open on the counter in the small kitchen.
I have this one guy at work that thinks he is the foreman but isn't. He works on a different line than me and tries to boss me around. I give him smart ass remarks since he thinks he is a know it all, but is actually the biggest screw up out of anyone. He dropped a whole stack of rails today and yells constantly and no one can understand him. When I first met him I thought he was German, don't ask me why, I just did. I swear he had an accent, but after my first week it seemed to go away. Then he starts wearing a Canucks hat and BC Lions shirt. It reminds me of Apu when he tried to prove he is an American "The NY Mets are my fa-vour-ite team." I should really tell him he isn't fooling anyone and call deportation or something.
Not just annoying, but despicable!!!! And I have two that sit next to be side by side!!!
First my supervisor aka Old Hag
She is the worst manager I could ever ask for. She is inconsistent, inconsiderate, incompetent, forgetful, fake, phoney, dishonest, disorganized, rude (she belches in front of customers!!!), overdramatic, unfair, selfish, and computer illiterate.
Incidents (there is a million more than what listed)
1. She does unethical stuff to clients in order to get sales. She has even manipulated a 90 year old customer who was completely clueless! The worst part, she EXPECTS ME to do it too! Sorry, I would prefer being able to sleep @ night!
2. Got mad @ me because her font color was now blue instead of a barely visible yellow and then called it "immoral and unethical" Compared to what she does on a daily basis?
3. Gossips about every single co worker! She has talked smack about everyone then when they show up, she'll hug them kiss them and say "I love you!"
4. Lied to customers and say I'll sell a certain product to them because I'm the "expert" when in reality, she doesn't want to sell that product because it hurts her sales ratio! :phhht
5. Asks me to be her freaking spellchecker or computer specialist every 5 minutes because her lazy ass can't take a few minutes a day to learn about computers or read an English grammar book! The 'I wasn't born in a computer age' excuse is old and worn out! No excuse why our much older branch manager and our 80-90 year old clients know more than she!
Next post.......my co worker....aka hooker.
Aaah, Much Better Now
I just changed jobs last week 'cause the annoying coworkers at the other one were absolutely intolerable.
I'm in a much, much smaller office and I'm the lead administrative person now. I'm in the process of hiring a coworker, and it's going to be someone who works hard, stays busy, and doesn't gossip.
I would tell stories about my nasty coworkers I just left but it would whoop me to do it right now -- it's just too soon and they bothered me too much.
I'm a worker, and it's so good to be away from all those idiots who weren't there to work.
I feel for you, poor Mrs. Cwebb, 'cause it sounds like you're around people similar to the ones I just left.
UGH -- we'll commiserate one of these days!!
Pomeraniac: Lucky for you to switch! I have a feeling I'll be stuck here for another 2 years. What can you do when you're a college student with a job that pays well, pays for half of your college tuition, and is only a 5 minute drive from home? :sad You know your office had that butter fight. My office had a jelly bean fight!
Here's the hooker:
Hooker: Mid 40 freshly divorced diva who wears a ton of makeup and fake jewelry. Her tasteless sense of fashion provides her with clothes that come in a variety of colors, but always transparent, low cut with saggy boobs hanging out, short, and tight. I've had a customer tell me that she's spreading her legs and flashing everyone. Tacky fake jewelry, wears about 6 fake gold chains on her neck, 4 fake gold bracelets and a bunch of fake gold rings on her claws.
Every morning walks by my desk asking me, "Am I beautiful? :barf
Always late for work, fake, phoney, extremely lazy, unethical to customers, flirts with all our male customers, slept with some, and just as computer illiterate as Old Hag.
In fact, one of our customer came over and yelled @ her for sleeping with her husband!
OMG, you guys are scaring me! I am looking to change jobs by the end of the year (my wonderful boss is retiring) and am absolutely petrified! I may have to work with backbiting, over-menstrural(is that even a word?), backstabbing people again! Yikes! My dream job is my boss not retiring (I think he can work until he's 90!), or an office that worries about the job at hand, not one person working and 10 others coasting, or a lot of backstabbing and poppycock!
:lol Da ho-bag

She's on vacation now, lucky for her, or else she'll feel the wrath of our branch manager. She basically violated a policy and in addition, forgot to notify her employees of a new policy enacted......all the way back in August!
Boy were the auditers and my branch manager fuming with steam coming out
of the top their head.
