This. A thousand times this. Especially whoever let Fido crap on the asphalt right in front of my mailbox rather than in the grass.

I found some in front of my house just yesterday. I don't get why people can't understand picking up their dogs' poop is a necessary evil. Sure it's nasty and nobody likes doing it, but it has to be 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.
That's always been the way I operated, but my old boss knew within the first month the way I operated and gave me all the leeway necessary to get the job done. I never had to deal with him breathing over my shoulder at every turn and telling me the way I needed to be doing things, my old boss was an "as long as you get your work done correct and in a timely fashion, I will leave you alone" kind of guy, whereas my new boss is a "I am going to get involved in every aspect of how you do things, and I'm going to make you conform to my outdated (seriously who goes from using a computer system back to the old "print paperwork for everything you do, and maintain file cabinets full of paperwork) methods" kind of guy. Run-on sentences aside, I've been following all his instructions for how I need to do my job, so we'll see. I'm not trying to burn any bridges here just because I had it good with my old boss.

Employees who act like children into their 30s.

I've got this one guy who works for me who internalizes everything. He does not know how to take constructive criticism. To him, everything is a personal attack. We have handled him with kid gloves for the 3 years he has worked with us, because we know he's "sensitive." I'm finding out that we should have been more blunt with him all along. If we ask him to make a change to the way he's doing something, he sulks off to his desk and doesn't talk to anyone for a week (no joke).

Grow up, Drew.

BTW, if anyone is looking for a cleared .NET developer, I will gladly pass along his resume.

I almost updated it at 3:00 a.m. I finally fell asleep sometime after 6:00 a.m. The alarm went off at 7:10. Pretty brain dead right now.

You should be crashed by now with that little sleep and being that old.

Thursdays kinda grind my gears. So close to Friday, yet so far away.

Indeed. And yet since I am now working Tues-Sat instead of Mon-Fri, Friday's will be the new Thursdays for me. I don't know if it's just me but it seems everything is bad on Thursdays. The traffic is worse on Thursdays (almost as bad as Friday afternoon's) people are crankier (me included), and more things go wrong.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I always take the stairs, two steps at a time for extra calf work. My office is on the top floor (4 floors).

I also always beat the elevator people upstairs.

So do you get your extra bicep work for all the pats on the back you give yourself on here? Right?

Honestly if we had a coworker here that did what you just described in the stairwells; he/she would be the butt of many jokes. Just picturing someone in business attire doing that makes me laugh.

Here comes Skippy!
