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.

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

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.

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

Been working my ass off, alone, on a project for over a year now. It's involved major rework of an existing system, but the system is owned by a different group. I've asked for help multiple times, and have even been promised it, but have never gotten it. People from the other team have repeatedly delayed my project, including management, who can't figure out what the hell they want to release and when. And when they change their mind (this is another team, mind you), they come to me to rescue them. They even delayed ALL work on their projects (and thereby mine) for two months to change fucking colors in the application for one user, who is completely new to the system.

Well, apparently the big wigs realized that they are shutting off the system my project is supposed to replace in October (due to inane hardware retirement plans that nobody consulted us or the customer on), and suddenly my project has become super important. I've been in no less than 5 scheduling meetings over the past two weeks, where the same shit gets said every time. Fuckers even argued for an hour about whether to use Project or Excel to track statuses. And I'm over here like "can I just go back to my desk and do actual work?" Now I got a 30minute status meeting every day, along with the two hour long status meetings that we have had, where the entire year I've been saying that we need more resources if we want to finish on time.

And the 2nd-level manager from the OTHER TEAM (not even in my org chart) tries to suggest to me earlier this week that "maybe I should consider working weekends" to make the date. Fuck you, man. Fuck you. No, I will not work weekends.

Our bathroom has five stalls. All can be empty, except for the one you choose; and yet, there is a guy at work that will invariably pick the one right beside you. Never fuckin fails.

And every single time, the guy sounds like he has a stick of dynamite up his ass.

Fuck timesheets, fuck them up the ass. My bosses fail to understand that requiring us to document every 10-15 minute discussion or task as it's own line item is wasting more time recording than any value gained from from recording it.

Nothing we do is time or material anyway and we're all salaried. It doesn't make a difference.

Funnier to me than timesheets is management’s pitiful attempts to slowly roll out timesheets without letting on.

Shucks, HR, I woulda filled that form out, but you never trained me on how to fill out that particular form. Send me an email about the upcoming training, and I’ll be there!

But I’m gonna need training on how to access and manage email. We can get to it after the don’t-slap-asses-in-the-workplace and how-to-use-a-ladder trainings. Also, Mary Anne’s got her tits out again and Susan’s not washing her hair anymore, so it’s probably time for the dress code/professionalism refresher where we all pretend we’re not just there for Mary Anne and Susan, and the new people wonder if it’s really about them and their inadequacies.

new guy constantly is telling me about the things he's been doing during the day trying to make himself sound busy when I can't find him for 6 hours out of 8.
also my boss won't quit talking about his son's baseball team and the one wheel plus he bought him for christmas. my only hope is the boss tries to ride it and breaks his ass

Discovered three massive, show-stopper bugs in our program literally the day before the release. QA is like "I tested it and it worked fine, I don't know why it doesn't work now..."

I head over to one of the teams involved with the bug report and how they can fix it, and the guy tells me "you don't know what the fuck you're talking about. you have zero information about this." So, four hours later, they come back and say exactly what I tried to tell them four hours earlier. Fuck you, buddy.
