okay so… i really freaking hate passive aggressive behavior… but i will partake in some now because I’m really freaking irritated.
please do not unplug my computer speakers because you do not like the song coming from them. is asking me to turn it down so hard for your little troll self to do? just curious.
second, please do not block said station from my browser. because if you do this than every lawyer including the managing partner will thus be affected and might results in some harsh words, if not your job. YOU ARE A PASSIVE AGRESSIVE idiot.

Hmm that is pretty irritating! Have you thought of listening on your smartphone(if you have one)?
However I have the opposite rant. My coworkers are the ones listening to music on their computer speakers. Which is never the same as the overhead music. Even if they turn it down really really low, I can still hear it but it is more of a tinny scratching sound coming from several directions.
Is there a nice way to ask someone to use earphones? I really don’t know how much more I can take (but the coworker in question is highly aggressive so I don’t know how to approach them).

i too, hate passive/aggressive bullshit. if you have a problem with me or something i’m doing, come to me face to face like an adult with confidence.
he probably has a small penis.

@kerensa: I have the opposite rant too. If you sit in a cubicle, use headphones, if you sit in an office and must listen to music, please close your door. If the music can still be heard through the whole office even when the door is CLOSED you need to turn it down!

you guys bring up good points but still….he could have just gone to her like a normal adult and said that her music is a little distracting and ask if she could turn it down. instead he unplugs her speakers? sounds like he doesn’t have a pair to me.

@nontraditionalmiami: Oh yea… I agree. The reaction was totally passive aggressive.

@kerensa: I have an iPhone and most days I will listen to it with my headphones on, but that makes it hard for me to know what’s going on around me. I sit with my back to a door, so it’s not ideal.
I try to listen to it as low as possible, it’s more that I need background noise than anything. I’m not trying to rock out, if I wanted to do that I would just wear my headphones all the time.
I think the thing to do (or the thing I do) is go to a superior and ask how I should I handle the situation, or if the superior should handle it. That person should usually know how to approach the offending person in a more, say, natural way, than just like saying it out of nowhere.
It’s so annoying, all the IT guys are like this, it’s like, grow a pair already.
