1) people who check their voicemail on speakerphone.
2) people who clip their nails at their desk
3) annoying ass cell phones set to full blast (without increasing ring or anything like that)
4) people who are incapable of laughing normally. its either nothing or a riotous cackle.

whats on your list?

^^that is great

when you're talking to someone, and then someone a few desks down who wasn't even involved in the conversation butts in and starts giving you their two cents

Coworkers who don't do a fuckin' thing but act like the place would fall apart if they didn't show up. They also act like they know what's going on but they're clueless as fuck.

Chinese coworkers who yell their gibberish to each other.

I really enjoy when there's a conference or for some reason lots of people out of the office

k, so i forwarded an invoice to contracts management who is supposed to deal with the customer. She replies 'please send these to Melany and Julie.'

1st, i have no fucking clue who melany and julie are.
2nd, it took you just as long to reply to me as it would've taken you to just forward it yourself.
3rd, because i don't know their email address, you now have to send another email to me with that information.

please, quit being so lazy, quit being an idiot, and stop eating willy wonka's blueberries.

oh, and people who can't pronounce the name of the company, i work at "Accenture", not "Assenture

People who have a converstion through their cubicle walls that consists of more than one question and a yes/no answer.

Also, people who work in the same room of cubicles together, but still call each other discuss things, even though they (AND I) are within earshot of one another.

The moral is, get off your lazy ass and walk the 5-10 feet to have your discussion!

- Strangers who ask how i'm doing, and actually expect, and wait for, an answer.

- Motherfuckers who ask for directions and don't listen; also, dumbasses who refuse to read the signs we've put up for them.

- People who call and ask for someone, don't want to leave a message, refuse to tell me what they're calling about, don't want voicemail, and insist on holding, and most combinations of any of these.

- Folks who launch into long-winded and highly-detailed queries immediately after '[workplace], this is christine. How may I help you?'. Do I sound like your account coordinator? Are you calling after hours? Why the FUCK would I have such detailed account information? And would you really want every warm bodied employee to have that information?

- People who TELL me to print them maps, get them phone numbers, etc. There are public terminals for you. I not only print maps, but verify them for the people who say please or are polite.

- Mouthbreathers who decide to hold cell phone conversations behind me.

- People who walk in and ask me where they're supposed to go when they don't know the name of the event/class, who it's through, what time it's supposed to run, any contact people, or what it's for. Yes, that happens.

- People who try to tell me to use Google to find what they're too lazy to find for themselves.

- People who expect me to somehow be able to fix their own damn problems ("Miss, we have no coffee, but I saw another room that does. I want coffee" is a lovely one)


Can you tell this job is a receptionist job
It's the general public. My bosses and coworkers are, quite literally, the best you could ever hope for.

GOOD LORD. We have one of those on our floor. When she laughs, the entire floor hears it, and it is definitely a cackle.

I'll add people who act like they are God's chosen because they've got "Dr." in front of their name and act like asses to everyone else. Most aren't like that, but you run into them enough to be very annoying.
