You were given documentation outlining procedures and deliverables. I don't care that you don't want to follow it. I'm not going to do your work, nor am I going to review it until your work begins to at least approach the prescribed conditions.

When the person training you to replace them actually has no idea what they are doing.

"Being self-employed, I work from home... so no complaints about co-workers, but goddamn I get tired of dealing with email luddites who don't understand accepted email communication.

Don't send me a fucking email with a blank subject.

Don't send me a fucking email with a scanned Word document asking me to add this content to their website.

I have clients who will type up a damn letter in Word, print it, take a picture, and email me. When I ask why they didn't email the Word doc, they reply that they didn't save it.

FUCK YOU."



OK, it happened again. Part of my job is website development/design. I have writers who draft the content and the client approves; but obviously this one didn't pay attention.

So we're doing the final "walkthrough" of the website on a call and the client says he wants to reorder some of the bullet points. How would you rearrange bullet points? Copy/paste the content into a Word doc or just paste it into an email? If that's too technical, you could even print the page and just re-number the bullet points.

No, not this guy. He prints the page, cuts each bullet point with scissors, and tapes the bullet points in the order he wants. Then he chicken scratches a few more with medical jargon.

Then asks me for my fax number.

It looks like a ransom letter.

@moron I've done that before... a few times. It's saved me from a stroke a few times.

I dunno, but dude man across from me microwaves a fish filet sammich most mornings. Like, he picked it up from Captain D's or something, ate half of it, and saved it for breakfast the next day. I don't get it.

^ I just read that, and I'm giggling over here. Like, how did he manage to sit there long enough to pinch one off without being caught

Why the fuck would you bring up new elements to add to construction documents 5 days before we are supposed to submit them? This ain't a god damn Christmas tree, STOP HANGING MEANINGLESS ORNAMENTS ON OUR DOCUMENTS!!!!

Spotted my first email from a coworker that featured her pronouns in her signature. Thing is she has a very feminine name and is not trans or anything else "alternative". I get it if somebody is trans (friends kid has changed her name to a guy now and has shirts with them on it) but it seems like unnecessary info if your not trans. Unless otherwise prompted I will address you as you appear.

Dude, that doesn't affect you in the slightest. Like, in the slightest. At all.

colleagues who have dumb inspirational quotes as their Lync/Skype status...for example:

"Do we exist only to live, or do we live to prove our existence?"

"Why are you keeping this curiosity door locked?"

I'm sure this has been covered, but it's incredibly relevant to me lately:

being included on long email chains that have absolutely nothing to do with anything I do

Oh shit you can add a status on there? I know how I'm trolling some people tomorrow. What's a good shitty quote for me to put on there?
