I only leave a voicemail when it's a known issue with that specific person and returning emails.
Yeah and the people that call to ask if you've received their fax or email... makes me want to rage all over them.

For some reason, everyone at my new office seems to do this. On a microwave, where the only way to accomplish it, is to actually open the door without pushing any buttons. Ugh
put a note on it and put posters up if it really grinds your gears. a friend and i dramatically cut down on the number of naked dudes in the locker room with a poster campaign with simple slogans like "put a towel on", "is it that hard to wrap a towel around yourself?", and "disgusting"

Yup, and those same people will always be the first to complain about how much work they have to do. It's like no shit, you spend half your day trolling around the office, what do you expect?

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Just a general overall question, but how do people feel about smoke breaks?

I know a few people here that easily take 1-2 hours a day smoking.

If I wanted to play a video game for that amount of time, I bet I'd be scoffed at.

it's actually one of the reasons i started smoking. i was waiting tables, all the smokers got 5 minute breaks here and there. when i wanted a 5 minute break to get some fresh air, i was told no. i went out and held a lit cigarette, bad news. when i worked in dc, although i was still smoking, i would only smoke during my lunch hour. i don't smoke anymore

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Some smokers in my office are totally out of control. Generally though I think management does a good job of policing it, but the problem is some of the biggest offenders are managers.

So interesting. I mean, I'm of the opinion that if you wanna' do it, it's your funeral provided you don't infringe upon non-smokers. I just think that smokers are given a free pass at work (at least here).

Matty, definitely noticed that at my last job. I mean what do you say considering it's something that's widely accepted in the workplace?

But one day I trolled the internet and I found out that it was cool and it was the "in" thing to hate Nickelback.

So whats up?

People in general who insist on telling you a story that you don't give a damn about.

The fact that ESPN First Take talks about the same shit in 6 out of 10 topics everyday, and of course Skip Bayless.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

OH, my new one:

"GIANTS FANS. YOUR TEAM JUST WON THE SUPER BOWL!"


It's been over a month. I think I'd even be sick of this commercial if it was the Skins.
