Annoying Co-workers!!!

Okay, I hate to use this blog to vent, but it's my blog, and darnit I'm venting.

I'm at work right now, and I sit about six feet behind one of the most annoying people on the planet. It's like whenever I go flying, why do I always sit next to the biggest creep who wants to talk the whole time? This guy thinks he knows everything, and likes to talk about it. He gives advice to everyone, whether it's asked for or not. And he cusses all the time. I mean seriously, why waste good cuss words? They should be reserved for special moments and not wasted on day-to-day rabble.

Now all of that is very annoying, but the kicker for me is that he chews tobacco all...day...long........... Who chews tobacco at work!? I work in an office for crying out loud! And he spits his cud out into a little styrofoam cup that just sits on his desk all day looking at me. It's disgusting. And all day long I can hear that "Squirt" from his tar filled cheeks to the bottom of that defiled cup. I feel like a cat being rubbed the wrong way. It's like nails on a chalkboard. I'm going crazy.

Anyways, please please please, leave a comment that talks about your worst co-workers. It would make me feel so much better to know there are worse. And it may make you feel better. And it's fun to make fun of people who annoy you. Please leave a comment on this one. Take the time. It'll go a long way.

I've been fairly blessed by having very few annoying co-workers (I've had many annoying bosses, but that's another story). Your comment about the co-worker who chewed tobacco was gross enough, but the worst thing I've ever had to deal with are co-workers who smoked. At my very first job out of college, way back in the day, I worked in a "bull pen" environment of 50 desks, where everyone except me and one (pregnant) woman smoked like chimneys!! The joint was smokier than any bar.

Yet in all other respects, these were really nice, decent people who you would be honored to have as friends.

This wasn't just a pet peeve of mine. I developed a hacking cough that persisted until we moved to a new building where indoor smoking was banned. Thank God for smoke-free work environments!

No. I gotcha there.
I was told by the network admin that a new vgoce-president was comming in and I needed to hook up his office with all the tech sets. I was just about to leave when he says take Steve. Steve is less than a month on the job and its his first one inwhich he doesnt have to sell something. So I go up to the office on 16. Pretty nice room. I check the sockets in his room and Steve and I go back and grab a computer, laptop and printer. And we go back in. Now understand. the guy we are rigging for is a VICE-PRESIDENT. His office is spotless. New carpet, new phone, new desk blotter, everything. So I start setting up. steve doesnt know what to do so he is just standing there.
I finish the printer setup and test it, when what do I see? Steve SPITTING HIS DIP into the garbage can! I mean come on. We are in the new VP's office and he is spitting his skoal into the mans trash? WTF! So, I do what a normal person would. I tell him to get his bald hillbilly ass out. I go back downstairs and the network admin wnats to know why I cursed at Steve. So I tell him. the tell Steve not to do that again and thats all. I tell ya, I could have chewed glass that day.

Wow, thanks for all the company. I knew there had to be plenty of annoying people out there. I think next I may post about different types of annoying drivers. I had a rough drive to work this morning. Oh well. What can you do?

Well my coworker likes to borrow my dishes without asking and doesn't wash them. He likes to leave them in the sink for a week so that his smoked salmon cream cheese is nice and embedded into my utensils.

seriously...it works.

Winnie said...

hey. I'm sorry to hear about your co-worker, but mine is the same exact way. He has his own office and makes fun of people who are in cubicles, swears too much, and acts like he knows it all. goodness gracious, he annoys the heck out of me. After 3 weeks of this (I was the new hire) I seriously considered quitting my job. Anyway, I gotta jet, but I will remember to give you an update later and let you know how the heck I'm planning to deal with him.

Like I said...he is tall.

My coworkers are all really creepy. One girl loves math like it's her boyfriend, and another girl has this freakish wingspan like a peterodactyl. It's amazing that I've survived this long.

How the heck do you get the nickname "Hitch?" Seriously.

I use to have this co-worker who would shave his pubes in the office restroom. "Steve, I don't care if you have a date tonight; stop shaving your pubes."
