Re: The Workplace

My company is starting a work from home program sometime this summer, I'll be able to work at home 3-4 days a week. Needless to say...

I CAN'T F'ING WAIT

I sit around some hens that just cackle all day long, drives me insane. They sit about 10 feet apart but they're on the phone all day or at each other's desk.

I can definitely see this being the wave of the future for many jobs. I could easily do my job at my house, lower my stress levels and honestly, probably be more effecient. I don't think there is a person on the face of the Earth who wouldn't take advantage of that situation just a little bit, but (at least in IT) there are times where stuff is just "working" and I could possibly spend 6 hours of my 7 hour day doing nothing.

Every once in a while something comes up but it better be important or I'm pissed. I also just had to remove the oven because some ass wipe city inspector said it was not safe and I would need to install some $4000 vent system after its been there for 8 yrs.
portable burners and a toaster oven put away when not in use

I got co-workers that like to talk about their hobbies a lot. Just because I have a bike doesn't mean I want to hear about you working on a customizing your bike almost every fucking day.


Oh and saying "your moma" out of nowhere and out of context is totally retarded...especially if the co-worker you're saying it to is in his mid 40's.

I HATE THE SMELL OF POPCORN.

Thankfully, the biggest offender who used to work in the office right beside me and popped it DAILY, sometimes burning it...RETIRED!

It is one of the rudest office behaviors that exists.

We've even had a "fire drill" because of burnt popcorn. Infuriating.

one lady talks non-stop. fuckin motormouth. and she's the skinniest thin-as-bones GHOUL you will ever see. i want to hockey-check her into the wall to see if she would just crumble to dust!

Re: The Workplace

Oh yeah, if you sick stay at home. I don't want your germs. Thanks for the popcorn tip fellas. I have a new perspective on Pop Secret. It's like a passive agressive middle finger to everybody in this damn office. BWAHAHAHAHA!!! I am about to pop me some now.

Dude the whole coming to work sick thing is just so wrong. And the kicker is those same people will use their sick days when they're not even sick! Yeah I get the whole mental health day thing, I do the same thing once in a while, but dammit use some of those sick days when you are actually sick.

Back on the smells, another bad office smell is when someone has onions on a sandwich. Smells like goddamn BO. Or when someone heats up fish in the microwave. Makes me wanna puke.
