A Few Things I Find Annoying

1. People who can't push in their chairs. Hello!!! You aren't the only one in this tiny 8 x 8 office. I don't like tripping over your furniture every time I want to leave.

2. People who are insanely nosey. If I wanted to tell you who I was talking to on the phone and what we were talking about, I would have volunteered the information. Since I didn't, turn around, shut your trap and mind your own business! P.S. If it's on my desk, it's none of your business so get your grubby paws off.

3. People who think I care about their life outside of the cruddy job they do at work. I don't care about your dog or your son or your friend who is addicted to perscription narcotics because of her back surgery and furthermore, I don't want to tell you about my husband, my life outside of work, or my infertility.

4. People who think it's ok to tell others about my life. Stop telling everyone that I waited a long time for this baby and that I had to see a doctor to get pregnant. It's not your issue to tell and it's not their business unless I decide to tell them.

5. People who try to make me look stupid every chance they get. I know just as much about this job as you even though you've worked here for nine years and never moved up. I held down the fort while you were "sick" and in rehab for the first 8 months of the year. I think I can handle myself.

By the way, I got my promotion! Wooo Hooo! No more basement drama for me. Now I get to deal with customers and a lot of coworkers. Yikes. Maybe I didn't think this through...

I'm just glad to be able to move up and work in civilization and work in a place with windows. Plus, I got my raise on the 17th...yes, three days ago. I have to stay down here until they hire a few more people so we can all go through training together. Big bosses said it could be January before I move up, but I am officially promoted.

Congrats on the promotion! Sorry you've got some lousy coworkers.

Did I tell you about my doggies? Oh, and what about my bunion? Boy, this economy sure has . . .

Oh wait, you don't want to know this stuff about me! lol

Sorry, just had to tease you a little.

LOL Tori! You have no idea how close to true that is. Only exception is instead of a bunion, it was a mosquito bit that she had obviously scratched until it became infected and then decided that she was dying because it was MRSA staph infection. HA!
