The Workplace
 
Is it not very obvious that you don't grill someone for answers when you see them eating lunch at their desk? Sometimes I wish I could just say "mother fucker, don't you see I'm eating my lunch?"

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.

Great thread. I'm trying to get microwaved popcorn abolished. If not in my building or floor, at least in the areas right around me.

The smell, even when not burned, just makes me nauseous. Excessive cologne too. Why do you need to bathe in peach syrup, lady around the corner from me?

When I built my office I knew I wanted a kitchen with a nice stove, microwave, frig, TV, insulated walls, and a door. My rule is when someone is having their lunch break at the office its like they are not in the building. At first the rule was broken a few times but now everyone knows the deal. 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.

People beyond college freshman say "your momma"?

Definitely agree about the microwave popcorn.

Not necessarily something I hate about lunch, besides being called back into the warehouse to take a delivery (for some reason it always feels like the most popular time for a delivery driver to pull up is during lunch break) but I hate it when I'm back in my section of the warehouse workin and one of the people from the sales staff stops in my section on the way to the back door for a smoke, and then they always gotta stop and talk to you and look at you annoyingly for not wanting to stop what your doing to listen to their annoying ass stories about how one of their kids did the most adorable scary monster impression the other day. Run on sentences aside that's the most annoying thing I deal with. Nowadays I pop some headphones in since the owner of my company banned radios in the warehouse and they see it and just walk on by thankfully.

</rant-complete>[/quote]Nothing like boring, stupid, unwanted conversation when you're trying to take a few minutes break from concentrating on writing code, bid responses, etc. Not like the code or bid response is important or an error could cost the company significant $$$ or anything.

And can't people figure out that if someone's eating at their desk they're probably pretty damn busy or broke.....in either case give a guy a few minutes to relax in peace.

I'm with you. I'm so glad I work in a smaller remote office away from our HQ. Just me and a few engineers, who are usually in the field anyway. Even better the ones who run their yap a lot rarely come to the office.

All I ask is that people don't talk to me about work at lunch. That's the only thing that will make me move to a totally different place instantly.
