Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

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!

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I'm not even mad.

Who's going to mock me, the lady that looks pregnant for the last 10 years or the one who broke her office chair?

Plus would it not be more of a workout to take every step vs. skipping some?
