I don’t have anything that bad! I really love my co-workers, but I just got lectured about drinking coffee from a girl who smokes. Yeah… She means well, but I’m not going to die from one cup of coffee every few days.

It must be something in the water this week…my office mate has been driving me BANANAS.  I lost my marbles on her today and my boss emailed me from across the hall to cheer me on…haha!!

I’ve got the loud “ahem. hem hem.. heeeeeeeeeeeeeemmmmm” ‘er beside me.  I want to fucking choke her.  I really really do. Now I work with headphones on and some lovely calming epic trance to sooth my nerves.  I thought when I first moved on to this floor she was getting over a cold, but nope. She does it ALL THE TIME.

My gripe for yesterday was that we had plans to transport a patient to a state psychiatric hospital.  Their admissions department was completely disorganized and their fax wasn’t working.  I told them this and received several alternate fax numbers.  None of them worked. I finally got what he ASKED through.  I went on my lunch break and came back with a note on my desk saying that the transportation was cancelled.  The social worker explained to me what happened and I was furious.  He asked me for the wrong thing, decided last minute to call up and cancel it (they don’t want to take in patients).  He HAD what he needed, but wasn’t accepting it.  The doctor at our psychiatric hospital had to call their doctor.  She accepted what he wouldn’t.  So, basically, he had me running around all damn day with stupid bullshit.  I didn’t get any of my work done and kept making stupid mistakes because of his damn phone calls screaming at me.

I’ve got the lady that interrupts me in the middle of a meeting and/or phone call/conference call to tell me that she needs to speak with me.  Um, you can email, IM me or even leave a note at my desk, you don’t need to walk into a conference room when I am clearly in a meeting to tell me to see you.  It’s rude and you make me lose my train of thought when I’m in the middle of a sentence and have to stop to hear you say “see me when you are done”.  Ugh.  It’s like she think she is the only important person in the world and everyone else I work with takes second fiddle to her needs.  Gah!!  She makes me nutty! 

Also, my entire office works in cubicles and the lady on the other side of me always takes calls on speakerphone.  We have small conference rooms and private offices for that.  When you work in an open floor plan, everyone’s conversations can be heard and it is so hard to concentrate when the person next to you has the volume on her phone and computer turned up so high that people in the office next door can hear.

There are two women in my office who clip their nails on a regular basis!! It annoys me to the point that I have to leave whenever I hear the first *clip*.

@leembee: Ewwwww. Stuff like that really grosses me out.

I work in a department with like 7 other guys… I’m the only female. Yesterday at our staff meeting my boss starts talking about how his dogs were humping each other?!? So of course I’m sure you know how quickly that convo went downhill with 7 guys in the room. I love the guys that I work with, but seriously?! I stood up and was like “Yeaaaa, I’m officially ending this meeting, it’s getting waaaay too graphic for me”. WTF people??

There is an older (not super old…like 50-55) gentleman at my office that doesn’t understand that I’m not his assistant. Actually, I work in a primarily male office/industry and a lot of them seem to make that assumption. It’s annoying to have to put my foot down and assert the fact that I’m not here to answer to you beck and call. I have a job, and it doesn’t involve you…thanks.
