When it's 5 pm. And you and one other person have done most of the talking. And we're not going to reach a resolution on this call since there is research/work that has to be done off the phone...don't keep talking. Just shut the fuck up. This manager on my team gets so revved up, I feel like I need to muzzle him. Just talking and talking and talking to make sure he gets his point across. Seeks to be understood and doesn't seek to understand. Dammit, he drives me fucking nuts.

That's exactly what I did. I gave them a courtesy 5 minutes and then told them, "Sorry, fellas. I have to leave." It doesn't hurt when you're the ranking member of leadership on the call.

hate to be sexist, but it tends to more often be dudes who think you give a shit about their stupid opinion in these cases.

Oh it's mainly dudes where I work. My boss is a female and she HATES going over on meetings. Especially when we're not getting anything done. She's famous for calling an hour meeting and then we're done in 15.

my new boss is a lady and runs them like "Jim, go..." so if you add on to anything, even if it's important, you feel guilty.

Yeah, my boss is super agenda driven. Her boss is all over the place, tangential and a bull in a china shop. Maddening.

I learned how to run meetings from a chick in my first job. No bullshitting, if you say something stupid or run on you know it, meetings last no longer than absolute necessary. I had a mandatory document review meeting that happened about 40 times a year. Before I took over, these would last 30-60 minutes for each. If it lasted more than 10 minutes once I was running it, there was something really fucked up with it.

A certain coworker keeps dropping ice cubs from the ice machine and never picks them up. Just leaves them there to melt in the middle of the floor. Fuck face.

That's a shitty move. Especially when someone slips on water and gets hurt.

It's only a matter of time. I clean it up at least once a week. He's also the same guy who leaves a shit streak on the back of the toilet seat. He's just a slob :x

A certain cubicle dweller outside of my office types on his keyboard non-stop at a monotonous, light-touch volume (click sounds only, no tone).

ahaha one of my coworkers was livid the other day about not zeroing out the time on the microwave. She's going to bring it up in the next staff meeting.

That does annoy me, but I'd never say anything. Another coworker uses it to defrost his iced coffee that's constantly messing up the freezer and he uses the defrost button to do it. On the 2nd hit, it automatically stops at 4:33 left and he's done. He never resets it, so every afternoon it'll say 4:33. Hate.

I was talking to someone while waiting for her stuff to heat up and she left it for me with 30 seconds on it. I was pretty surprised she'd do it to me right there, but I wasn't annoyed enough to say anything.

I normally wouldn't have, but he's a friend of mine so when I finally saw it was him after seeing it for months, I said you're the fucker who leaves that strange time on the damn microwave. Clear it asshole! Of course he doesn't :lol:
