While I'm on the subject...

…of things that get on my nerves in the office:

People who sit at their desk and randomly shout the names of co-workers on the off chance that said persons might be within shouting distance. That’s why God put an intercom button on your telephone, dipshit. Use it.

I am guessing a male? possibly a lawyer?

(it may just be my mood today nothing to do with my favorite lawyer though-he'd never do that, nor would I ever think of him as a dipshit)

Oh my goodness! You are not the only one!

This happens here daily!!!! It drives me nutts!!

There is one peron in particular that will do this and then after yelling out the co-worker's name this person will start a conversation. Even when said co-worker has not responded because they are not even at their desk (or in for the day!)

my boss... I love him, but he's always hollering my name with in hopes that I'm within earshot.

Of course, he's usually hollering because he CAN'T work the phone,(or computer, etc.)

Jen - It's Big S and I don't mind saying so. :)

La Sirena - I worked for a guy like that for 7 years. I still miss that guy.
