Apparently don't ask what the roles of new hires are in the office, that is a no no.
Wait, that sounds familiar.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

One purchase and they annihilate my screen with sexy legs. Overkill if you ask me. What about all of the PC parts I've just bought and sold!?!?!?

Noooooooooooo...we're going to try to fill this guy's closet with panty hose.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

My new boss calls me "big dog." Gears --> Grinded. He also told me he expects me to be his muscle. Sigh. Between this and completely changing my normal work routine, this hasn't been a smooth transition so far.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

People who stop to let other people in.

Honestly if youre doing this dont think youre being a nice guy, you arnt. All your doing to helping one person out at the expense of everyone behind you. That person trying to turn on to OUR lane will be able to do so in just time, dont worry about him. Its not your job to help him out while screwing over everyone behind you that missed a light they wold have otherwise made.

Bosses who micromanage. And are also determined to "fix" what isn't broken. Is this related to previous posts of mine in this thread? Yes. I'm officially going insane.

Yup. They dont really understand how your job is done, so they create 'busy' work for you by making requests for things that really arent worth the time you invest in them. Sure, i'll work for 2 weeks on this report, which you may or may not use to impress someone that decided 10 years ago they dont like you and will never promote you. Absolutely, would love to, great idea, when is my review? douchebag

One of the best skills you can achieve in life is the ability to manage your boss. Some folks are really good at it and others not so much.

My one buddy is awesome at it and his career has shinned due to it. He has delt with some really tough bosses but in the end they liked him and promoted him along.

If folks know you work an a$$hole and you prove you can thrive under a a$$hole; mean you just laid a golden path for yourself.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

People who take their dog out in public (park, beach, walk through city) and dont clean up after it. I gotta Lab and proudly rock the poop bag.

Yeah I can agree with that. My strategy at work has always been to stay under the radar, don't complain, and just get my shit done.

I know some people who constantly butt heads with their supervisors, I never understood that. As a result they're constantly on the shit list and the funny thing is, they never seem to understand why.

Oh the best ones are the ones who pick it up with the little plastic bag then proceed to just throw the little poop filled bag on the ground. So you just took poop that probably would have decomposed in a week or so and now it will last 1000 years, awesome! Good job.
