Annoying Coworkers
« on: April 18, 2007, 11:47:37 AM »

A new guy is in the process of moving into the cube next to me, and I'm worried.  Every couple of hours he goes to town with some cleaning sprays and the fumes are killing the rest of us.  Disgusted

I think it's just a temporary thing while he gets settled, so I haven't confronted him about it yet, but I have my fan on full blast towards his area.

The funny thing is that I bought the fan because the guy on the other side of my cube has unfathomable BO.  He lives on a boat, and only showers every couple of weeks.

Whew!  I started getting a headache from the fumes, so I evacuated the office and I'm now "working" in a coffeeshop with my laptop. Grin

I should thank this guy, though, I'm usually the last person to leave the building, but the last two days, I went home early because the fumes were getting to me.

There's another guy on another floor, though, that might be the strangest coworker I've ever encountered.  I don't work with him often, but in the first meeting I'd ever attended with him present he pulled out an orange and started eating it at the conference table.  This wasn't that unusual, except after every bite he would spit the seeds on the floor, sometimes under the table, sometimes right behind him. Disgusted

The second meeting with this guy was even worse.  He wears birkenstocks, which isn't that odd since I work in downtown Berkeley.  But in the middle of a meeting he busts out toenail clippers, puts one foot on the table, and starts cutting his toenails!

No one even seemed to notice (maybe they're used to the guy?), but I couldn't pay attention for the rest of the meeting, I was just trying to keep from getting hit by flying toenail clippings. Disgusted

We have an admin who is an English major and consistently engages in those really annoying word games. For example; "That's a pretty risky thing to do." Her response: "Risky or risque?" My response: "STFU". Okay not really, but that's what I'm thinking.

I work with this *8==>*head who's always telling me to STFU when I try to engage him in my clever word games. Okay, not really but I bet that's what he's thinking.

There was a guy I worked with many years ago who's nickname was 'Noddy'.

He always kept a pillow under his desk, so that when he came into work he'd just crawl under his desk and go to sleep.

One day we hid his pillow, so he just went out and came back 30 mins later with a new one.

It wasn't that he was annoying, he was just very lethargic, just like those Mexican Sleeping Rabbits.

I worked with a guy who farted. Daily. Very audible.

I'm not sure if he thought we couldn't hear or if he really didn't know he was doing it. But he never once acted like it was anything unusual.
