Dear Coworker Who Talks Too Loud,

Please understand that this is a professional work environment and no one (especially customers) want to know the nitty gritty details of your life. Also, it’s NOT OK for you to chime into conversations that someone else is having WITH someone else about the events of their life, only to OUTDO their tales with marvelous ones of your own. One more thing to keep in mind is that you sit RIGHT ACROSS from 2 supervisors offices and the DIRECTOR is right ACROSS THE ROOM, so it might be wise for you to keep your colorful vocabulary to a minimum.

Sincerely,

Someone who is NOT impressed by your obnoxious personality.

Dear Co-workers,

I’m only pretending to like you. 

Love, VM.

ps:  I judge you based on how messy you keep your cubicles, you filthy, filthy piglets!

Dear Coworker who has not understood the concept of boundaries:

It is NOT ok for you to come at my desk, stand behind me to watch what I’m doing at my computer.
It is NOT ok for you to leave your garbage on my desk, nor is it ok for you to put your things there to sort them out. Use your own desk!
It is NOT ok for you to come grab things in my cabinet by passing OVER my head! Just ask me for what you need, I’ll get it for you.
It is NOT ok to come over in the middle of a conversation I’m having with someone and just listen and then ask what we’re talking about. If we didn’t include you in the conversation, maybe it’s because it does not concern you.
It is NOT ok to take files from my desk and tell me what I’m supposed to do with it. First of all, I KNOW how to do my job, second, you’re not even giving me the right information and third, it was sitting on MY desk for a reason!!!

The sad part is that this is a very nice person, but NO concept of personal space!!! I tell her all the time, it doesn’t get through to her… uughh!

THAT FELT GOOD!!!

Dear OTHER Coworker, 

It is NOT OK to call in “sick” EVERY other Monday (& Tuesday). We are short-handed enough on this shift as it is when everyone is here. You are so selfish and lazy.

Also, PLEASE for the love of all things holy, TAKE A FREAKING SHOWER! EVERY. DAY.

 

Sincerely,

Someone who is onto your game

Almost forgot:

Dear other co-worker:

The only reason your office was smelling so good the other day, was because we put Febreze in it while you were out on your break. Your office smells like feet to the point we can’t get in. BUY NEW SHOES!!

Honestly, someone came to me to complain that when you walk in the hallway they know it’s you because of the SMELL!

Good thing you’re leaving tomorrow… We’ll miss you!

I KNOW! I went through an entire meeting the other trying to subtly have my hand over my nose/face because I couldn’t breathe properly, the smell was THAT bad.

Although I must say, it does bother me a lot, but less than the one who has no boundaries… I feel I have to fight every minute of my day for my personal space. It’s very hard….

@ egb – I know EXACTLY what you’re talking about with the personal space thing. The same guy that needs a SHOWER is also bad about that (think about THAT when your other coworker gets too close – at least she doesn’t SMELL! lol)

In the past, he has stood over my shoulder as I took a call (this is when I was new and ‘might need help’) and I had to tell him not to stand over me because I can’t work like that!

Dear Co-worker,

You need to retire. You are old and wore out and incapable of handling the stress of your job. I hate that I have to spend every day with you. I pray that sometime you will realize that lunch is a break, and time to take a rest, so please stop talking about work during that time. Further to that; silence is golden, so don’t tell me about your grandchildren, daughters, sisters, mother, friends, etc. I also don’t care to hear about all the bad news in the paper, or someone you know who knows someone who knows someone who had a personal tragedy. If you love drama so much please retire and spend your days watching The View and Soaps and then I won’t have to listen to your crap.

When you get your lunch please don’t tell me that you asked for a half order or confess that you ‘are being bad today’. You are 63 and have a self-esteem issue. We get it. If I eat healthy, please don’t say ‘oooooh, someone’s on a diet!’ I’m not on a diet, i eat salad everyday for lunch and have for the past 2 years that i’ve worked here. shutup.

Most of all, shutup. Just shutup. Just go back to your desk and do you work (even though I know you are sitting in their playing hearts on your computer and then staying late to make yourself seem indespensable)

Just shutup.

Oh, and you are only invited to my wedding because I want to invite our other co-workers. I could care less if you were there.

Thanks,

BsGF.
