poll, most people say they would just as soon work in an office with other people -- if and when the conditions are right.Work?? In an office?? That be a conflict in terms. Actual work is not done in an office, thats where pencils get pushed around, donuts by the pound gets stuffed down some sit on thy azz person. Water gets drunk while people just stand around the cooler. These so called workers need to get a REEL job.
I hate it when the pencil sharpener is too far from my desk, or when I have to walk all the way down the hall to get fresh coffee in the break room. What really drives me crazy is when someone takes the last chocolate chip cookie and doesn't throw the box in the trash can. Also I don't have a place to hang my cardigan sweater, so I have to keep it on the back of my comfy swivel chair. Waaaaahhh Waaaahhh
Better shoot thy self then bobby.
At age 50, I found a way to check out of the rat race and have worked at home for over 4 years now. All I can say is if you can do it, you are one of the lucky ones. No more commuting, elevators, meetings, reviews, mandatory one hour lunch breaks, bosses, schedules, and alarm clocks, and getting sick twice a year ( I have been sick once since I quit). The only thing I miss is that I dated a lot of women from the office over the years. We had good turnaround, so there was always a fresh supply of 30+ year old divorcees as a captive audience for "advancement."
Employees that take umpteen smoke breaks during the day and the non smokers do not get to take breaks like that.
Take up smoking then stocker, and breath deep as you can, hold it in, then choke.
Lousy managers from the top to the bottom that have no business being managers.
good pet peeve is when a manager tries to tell you how to do your job when they have no clue. Happens all the time in an auto shop, they hire managers just because they have a management degree, even though they've never checked the oil in their own car before.
that's the ones that I like to have the all you can eat bean buritto lunch and go into their office when they step out and rip one off that will peel the paint off the walls
This sounds bad, but I worked in an automotive repair shop for a few years, and the other mechanics always complained when I used an air tool that was loud. So I stopped using it and that made my labor charge go up because it took twice as long to do the job. In the end, the customer paid the price. Another way shops make money that no one knows about, and most shops laugh at the fact. Another job at a paint shop, co workers use to complain about the smell of the paint when I sprayed a car. Drove me nuts, we worked at a paint shop.
1. Co-workers that always brag about their life (pretending to be rich, important etc...). Then actually seeing them at the store and finding out they really are not what who they say they are. 2. Farting. Then pretending like they didn't do it. Walking off and leaving the funk. 3. Gossip. 4. Political Fanatics who always have to walk around and comment about everything the politicians are doing. 5. Co-workers who bring stinky lunches that en-fumigate the microwave and the entire eating area.
Noisy work place is a great pet peeve but my biggest pet peeve is probably control freak management. Worse than that Control freak management who has insecure marriage. He is manager, you a female a employee, wife of manager calls every 15 min. to find out what husband is doing and despite the fact that you are 20years older wife thinks you are messing with her bald, control freak husband. Next pet peeve, the manager has no idea what your job is. Lastly, big pet peeve is seeing said manager on a daily basis, but at 6 month and yearly evaluation he informs you that you did are are doing something other than the way he wants you to do it. Leaves one feeling that they missed out on the class of ESP. Retired now, Thank the good lord.
How about FRESH AIR and NATURAL SUNLIGHT??? Fluorescent lighting and stale air- might as well be a prison cell.
