Office pet peeves (what's yours?)

Mine is when we are having a tricky INTERNAL technical discussion via email trying to address something dumb a bone-headed customer did and some asshat .. usually in sales.. adds the customer to the thread because they are too dumb to realize we've been calling the customer out in our discussion.

Microsoft needs a way to alert you when someone adds an external email address to an ongoing discussion.

Everything you put in writing you should be ok with the whole world seeing. That’s life 101.

When a customer asks for unsalted fries in order to try and game the system to get fresh fries.. we don’t give a shite and often just put reg fries in the bag.

Coworkers that burn incense or have strong smelling candles, etc. – I can’t stand those

while true; internal discussions by definition are often more candid than when the customer is included in the conversation.

Coworkers who don’t clean the pots and pans good enough.

Plenty of them.

But one is when someone sends an email asking about something that they could have so very easily figured out by themselves in a fraction of the time spent sending an email by clicking a few buttons.

When you are slammed and knee deep in a problem trying to troubleshoot and/or resolve it, and some impatient asshat wants to pick that particular time to hit you up for something completely unnecessary. And then he/she has a little temper tantrum that you tell them you'll get to it later because you're a little busy.

old women who wear nasty smelling perfume and even some of the younger ones. The guy in the office next to mine puts on enough cologne to bath an elephant, usually to cover up the smell of booze/partying from the night before. Take a shower asshat.

That meeting that could've just been an email.

Right now it's people badgering the frick out of me to use my first-floor office for a client they scheduled that can't go up the stairs to their second-floor office. And wanting to swap at the last minute. Had to get shitty with a newer coworker who wanted to switch after I had already started a session with a client (and interrupted the session). Do better, y'all.

Im not wearing a suit and tie to work gramps. I work with the same 25 people every day, and unless I'm meeting customers, I'm wearing jeans and an untucked polo.

Good lord this! Especially if pertains to something you’re not even really involved with.
