I just got a new extension at work and I’m going through the usual process of stragglers calling the number expecting to reach the person who use to own the extension. I politely tell them that this extension no longer belongs to that person and most of them say OK and hang up. I have no idea who use to own the number and I don’t know their status here at work (terminated or whatever). But sometimes I’ll get people who will fight with me and say “well this is her number” in response. OK….we Read the rest of this entry »
Sometimes the best solution to morale problems is just to fire all of the unhappy people.
wednesdays suck and i wish i could trade them in for fridays. but then again i wish i could trade all days in for friday, or saturday even. let me recount to you where my deep rooted hatred of wednesdays began.

I hate my job so much. The constant un-rhythmic clicking of my senile co-worker’s keyboard is enough to make my mind swell with agony. The water cooler to the left of me shuts on and off every mind numbing minute. The very eager employee who works down the hall is ‘making small talk’ with the boss in an extremely annoying manner. And to top it off, my bloodshot eyes can’t take the burn of the 180 watt fluorescent tube light above me. God help me…
My team has been working on a project for 2 months (we will call this project WOLF for clarity), Now this project has ended almost a month and a half ago. On rare occasion we still get some calls about Project WOLF like 1 every 3 day’s and that is for a team of 8 people so you do the math. Our team has had nothing at all to do until our new project can start.
Finally today I get an email on the new project and what needs to be done all the team members recieve an email stating their t Read the rest of this entry »
I wish someone would start writing up the late folks for work, or give me a raise for being punctual.
I worked at an amusement park one summer performing in a show. This was by far the worst job I ever had.
We played on trash cans. We were sponsored by Waste Management.
Once again, we played “drums” on trash cans, and were sponsored by a garbage company.
Unfortunately, after beating the ever-living shit out of the lids 6 times a day, they would quickly become destroyed, and eventually very dangerous with sharp edges everywhere.
For some reason management c Read the rest of this entry »
Our project has been finished and ready to ship for over a year now, but it’s sitting on a shelf waiting for some government guy to sign an approval form. Good thing we worked all those 60 hour weeks last Christmas to get it finished.
The office refrigerator is not a place for your science experiment. If your food is growing sprouts, mold, or smells like ass on a hot summer day it’s time to take your tupperware home!
Dear Mr. Murray,
Thank you for giving me time to ask the maitre’d if we could fit your group in this weekend. He manages all final reservation decisions at our restaurant, and I appreciate your patience.
Per our conversation today, I do apologize I was unable to make your reservation for 8 people on Saturday. Perhaps the blame may fall on me…I will accept it. When we spoke a week earlier, I did make it clear that we are unable to accept reservations of more than 6 people Read the rest of this entry »
