Why is it that normal people suddenly become giant assholes when it comes to doing mundane things at work. I sit close to a communal microwave, and at least once a week some jackass reheats whatever garbage they plan to ingest that ends up stinking up the entire damn office space.
Today, a double treat. Moron Alpha severely burned a bag of popcorn. I turned it off when it still had 5 minutes left and the burnt smell had reached its nauseating apex. How dare I go to do work and not monitor fucktards and their use of simple electronics.
Now, Moron Beta is reheating fish. Yes fish. Something that really should never be reheated at all, and this asshat is zapping it at high power. It smells like a bait store covered in burnt popcorn wrapped in the human body ovens of Krakow. I might have to cleans the building of all organics.
Share stories or help me plan the elimination of my inconsiderate co-workers. Just get my mind of the stench.
Did that 4 months ago.
People are inconsiderate jackholes who are too important to not burn food or spill coffee all over the place and leave it, cup and all.

The problem is I work for a large corporation. I work in Research & Design / Tech Service, but there are sales people, marketing, purchasing, technicians, and others I think just keeping dust off the furniture with their asses.
They aren't horrible people, but it's like a trigger that goes off in their heads when they're at work. They become instantly stupid and do things here they would never dream of doing in their own home. Like leave 1/8 of an inch of coffee in a pot on a burner all night or leave used tissues on a conference room table. Full tissues. Moist. They're worse then my two year old.

Also, by the end of the day, there is almosst always a giant moat around the sink on the counter. I don't know what these people are doing, but it's like they're cupping their hands and just dumping the water on the sink counter.
Then, either I woke up and had another dream, or it was part of the same dream, but I dreamed that I was talking to my coworkers about having a dream that I beat the shit out of my boss.
2 dreams or dream within a dream? Who knows?
They call that anger pissing.
I don't hate her, but woman i want my money.
Or join the rest of us in the 21st century and get direct deposit.
I'm an intern.
I don't have rights.
I haven't touched a damn thing that's dirty when I go piss
You have the right to get paid on time. If you don't get your check today, take that shit up with the Department of Labor and Industries.
They're in Britain.
I work for the American branch of this company and there are only like five people here.
Hey look at me, I'm the Geek. I'm totally contrary and germ-ridden!
Send me all your gold and stuff in WoW if you're closing your account. I'm cooler then Futility.

Then talk to one of them, somebody has your paycheck, go get it, or call your supervisor wherever she is and whatever she's doing and be like "hey bitch, where's my money!"
Plus I have easy access to the vacuum cleaner and kitchen towel and antiseptic wipes and keyboard cleaners so if I do eat at my desk and drop a few crumbs I can easily clear up.
What about the handle on the way in to the bathroom? Or the doorknob to get into the building? Or every single other door opening device that you encounter every goddamned day? Those are no worse.
How about money, do you ever touch a dollar bill? Or maybe some change.
What about your shoes? Do you touch your shoes with your hands when you put them on? The shoes that walk around on the dirty ground all day, the dirty ground covered in grime and mud and spit and who knows what else?
I'm not kidding. If you don't get your paycheck today, call up your local branch of the Department of Labor and Industries.
I haven't been visiting.
Too true. Iron out in the beginning that you don't take shit and deserve to get paid on time. Some shit like this snowballs before you know it your turning tricks down the street just to make ends meet.
If you plan to stay there at all, let them know that they can't pull this kiddie crap with you. This isn't working summers at your dad's bait and tackle store, you are an employee and have rights.
I've had many a jobs where overtime is crucial and companys LOVE to try and screw you outta that money.
Pretty good. Getting more and more hits and downloads. We did an interview with Khoo a few weeks back. That was pretty fun.

I work for a pest control business, and I mostly spray apartments.
An old lady with smeared lipstick answered the door today when I came by to spray (regular spray, we come by once a month just to do that)
She told me she had a pest problem. What was this pest?
She described it as a very large, invisible tree frog that talked to her and followed her around a lot and wouldn't leave her alone. She also said it'd howl at her when it gets mad and that it will regularly fight with her cat, even though there was no cat, animals aren't even allowed at these apartments.
She said she can hear it walking up the steps to the attic at night, even though there is no accessible attic to these apartments.
She told me it was hiding while I was there because I was new and even though I was being nice and acting like I believed her, she swore she wasn't mental because, "she seened it"
I told her I'd spray for it. I don't think she was happy still.
I can't help it we don't have spray for giant, walking, talking, invisible tree frogs.
