I don't know... Ever have a canker sore? Hurts like hell right but some reason you can't stop poking at it. That is what the coffee situation is like for me; it grinds my gears but a remote part of me finds pleasure in the disappointment of it not being there. I guess it helps me justify this place sucks at times.

It is odd I really can't explain it but at times people get pleasure from things that pain them.
Like getting pleasure from being a Skins fan.

Finally something we can agree on.

Why do we sit there on a Sunday, all excited, only to be miserable by the end of the Third or worse (as it seems with Dallas) on the last score of the game?

Just for rare moments like this:

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

This one goes out to Mr. I-Wear-Too-Much-Cologne-At-Work Guy. Only you can smell like you just rubbed yourself down in 30 pages of cheap cologne samples from random magazines. Only you feel the need to wear cologne in a parts department, whose main smell is a combination of box dust, car parts, and ciggarette smoke, at least when you're not around. I guess you gotta be prepared for when you occasionally see a woman in this sausage fest.

Seriously there are older analyst at my job that HAVE to have file cabinets. WTF for? I will ask them a question then we will have to walk over to the cabinet to check it out. I just want to scream put it on a PDF or just save it in a computer folder. You don't have to print every piece of work you do.

One old dude still has a roldex on his desk.

Sometimes I think back to when there were no computers. What the hell did yo udo on your down at your desk without a computer? Count paper clips? Really that be my personal hell!

My office has been "paperless" for years now, yet we still have those dinosaurs that run the printers ragged.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

.....Girls Scouts..
Damn their cookie hawkin' souls to Hell!
Every year it's the same thing. It's not enough to purchase their containers of cookie delight every time you see one of their.....tribe during the cookie season. You must dig deep each and every time they put there collective "arm" on you...Please Mister, it's for the Girl Scouts and my fate is sealed or be branded a leprous child hater or is it Hatter?
Enough of the Big Sad Eye's at the exit of my favorite grocery store. I will have to resort to doing my grocery shopping at my local Quicky Mart until the season closes. They blanket the area better than the local PD on a BOGO at Dunkin' Donuts.
Oh...when will it end?
Sooo many Tagalongs.........
