We had the office move last week and this week, I was finally able to settle in.
And by settling in, I mean I tried to pretend to work while
– there was still renovation going around
– colleagues talking too loudly about moving in
– colleagues talking too loudly about moving out of your floor
– the coffee machine being fixed too loudly by the vendor for the entire morning so not only was there no coffee, there were lots of hissing and sputtering sounds
In every office, there are people who do this:
Why??!! I WILL READ SO AT MY OWN LEISURE, OKAY??
And when you are right about some work project and some extremely smart aleck who has done nothing but claim credit for your work and god forbid, tell you your data is wrong, I wanna show them this the next time. I am so printing this on my cubicle and putting it up on Monday.
And people who go back on their word at work, can go to Hell for all I care.
It has been a stressful week and I am so glad for best friends whom I go out lunch with – at least I can shut down all the nasty stress for an hour each day. When I come back from lunch, I have this colleague who would say ‘oh how nice that you have time for lunch, I barely have time to pee.’
OH REALLY, HOW INEFFICIENT OF YOU.
