^Although disgusting, would that really be a fireable offense even if you could fire him?

Also, every day??? How fast do his nails grow?

Guy behind me is incapable of closing his mouth when he eats. And he eats 4 or 5 times every. Fucking. Day.

Our "DevOps" team is beyond worthless. It takes them over a week to respond to any and all JIRAs for basic system shit. They cant figure out how to let us specify version numbers for our software builds from the build website, so we have to check in our version numbers into a text file in the repo.

Due to how slow they are in responding to JIRAs, I requested that they let us specify an industry-standard xml config file for nuget Package sources, so that when some othe devops fucknut dicks up our primary source (as they do on a monthly basis for no fucking reason), we can just change the config and have our builds work while they take their sweet time fixing whatever they fucked up... Nope, they dont know how to parse xml from whatever scripting system they are using, so they are gonna keep hard coding our sources. Their solution is... wait for it... to submit a JIRA to DevOps to change our build scripts while we wait for DevOps to fix the package sources

This year. The manager's gone. The manager's manager is also on vacation until August 12.

Some of my coworkers are pieces of shit. One is gone until next Wednesday. The other didn't do shit all week and decided to take entire Friday. Our work/projects don't really overlap and doesn't impact much downstream. Both contractors, meaning hourly, no vacation days.

Should I still snitch?


And....Christians.

Definitely snitch, but anonymously.

Unless you're bulletproof

then snitch loudly.

and make examples of them. and call their churches to snitch even more. get them kicked out of heaven.

When people send an email, then walk over immediately and instead of saying hey they say "did you read my email?"

If you're going to come over, come over and don't write. If you're going to write, write and don't come over unless it's an email about stopping by at a certain time and done in the form of a meeting invite that I have accepted on the calendar.

Once every couple years some goober manages to send an email to a corporate list. The barrage of "I got this by mistake" emails I get and can handle, but then comes the 2nd wave: people replying all saying "PLEASE DON'T REPLY ALL"

^^ I've had people come over multiple times asking "did you see that email I just sent?" about an email that legitimately had not hit my inbox yet because they sent it literally ten seconds prior to walking over.

I do that so I can prove I'm faster than the internet.

^^^ Yeah, but the third wave of emails is comedy gold, where folks start trolling and asking what everyone is doing that night.

1) There should be required training in order to enable the Reply All button
2) It's trivial to set up email DLs which restrict who can send to the DL

We have an AD group (which doubles as an email DL in outlook, IIRC) that controlled access to a corporate file share. Someone sent an email to that DL one day, which of course hit thousands of users. I guess a sysadmin got pissy that day, because he actually removed every user from the AD group who reply-all-ed requesting to be removed. Given that it can take several days for an access request to go through, those users were fucked, and they each got a stern talking to about reply all etiquette before they got their access back. It was glorious

^ this happened in April

I work for a global company, so after the first wave of 1000+ emails, other time zones started checking their inboxes as their day started and jumped in with another 1000 emails.

Some people got VERY angry that their inboxes were filling up. Like, inappropriate-for-work level anger at the people who continued to reply all.
