Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I kind of go a step further on that.

I have IN my voicemail message that I'll respond to emails much quicker since I'm ALWAYS at a computer all day, but I'm rarely at my desk. People STILL just leave ONLY voicemails and it makes me so angry.

Are you so lazy you can't give me a quick rundown of your problem via email?

And then I get the people that don't understand how to leave a voicemail and they just keep calling, and calling, and calling. Sometimes I don't answer just to see how many times they'll keep trying.

Yeah I can relate. On my voicemail I say if you need to fax something my fax number is ....

And yet I still get people leaving messages saying they want my fax number.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

We have this modular messaging thing at work now where all voicemails are forwarded to our email. Kind of cool to just click a button and play (fast forward through) an audio link

Mysterious crepy mods who post out of no where and who's sole purpose is to scare you and correct your signature every 12-16 hours.








Of course I am talking about Extremeskins.com

Not you! It would take about 3 hours to explain my position and the sarcasm. Don't worry about it. That was not a shot at you. Or any of the other people on there. It was more or less an inadvertent shot at myself. Although, I am not really one of the people I was refering to either. Never mind its complicated.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Salesmen who must tell me their entire life history when I'm just trying to purchase one simple item.

I went looking for some inexpensive pool cues today at a place called "Rec Warehouse". The salesman "Felix" who was this rather dopey looking fellow with bad teeth asks to assist me. So I tell him what I want and instead I get a 30 minute synopsis on the following details of his life.

- He is one of the top ranked pool players in Greensboro. He plays 6 hours a day and is going to Vegas to become a pro.

- He loves football. Acutally he loves football players and explained how upset he was when Jerry Rice went to Oakland. Montana is the greatest, but he loves Brett Farve too and he's going to see the Packer's play this season, but when Farve leaves he won't be a Packer fan anymore. I then called him a bandwagon fan, which he argued he wasn't. (Whatever dude.) Then he proceeded to tell me which Redskins players were in the hall. Dave Butz being one of them. He knew everything about the Skins cause his parents were Skins fans.

- He loves basketball, but stopped being a Bulls fan when Jordan left. He claimed he was offered a full ride to Georgia Tech and the coach came to his house personally and begged him to play, but he turned him down because the only coach he respected was Dean Smith and that guy wasn't Dean Smith, so he told him thanks, but no thanks and he wanted to be just like his dad and join the marines. (For the love of God, make it stop.)

- He has only five items of sports memorabilia, but they are kept in a safety deposit box because they are worth $85,000.

Those are just the highlights. I could go on and on and on...

Newsflash dude, you're a tool who sells hottubs and pool tables. End of story. JUST HELP ME FIND WHAT I NEED! The crappiest part of this whole experience is that he sold me what he said were 52 inch pool cues, only when I get home they're 58 inches. ARRRGGGHHHH!!!

Sounds like the kind of guy that I should introduce to my wife. It sounds like they would really get along.

Never thought you'd see the day you'd complain about it being 6 inches too long did you?
