Talking on speakerphone with your office door open

Don’t fucking do it. I work at a place where I used to have an office. The upper management decided it would be a good idea to have an open layout. Well, it fucking sucks. It has been like this for 2 years now. Everyone who is in a cube hates it. Folks that have an office are indifferent. What really sucks is that my boss only uses his phone on speaker. He never picks up the handset. Sometimes he puts his cell phone on speaker and lays it on the desk and talks. The entire time he is practically yelling. I get up from my desk regularly and I close his door. He doesn’t mind but after I close it 3 or 4 times in one day I refuse to close it again.

This shit pisses me off to no end because he has a door he can close; I do not. ┬áIf you read this, and you have an office, please close your door if you are going to talk on speaker…or just pick up the fucking handset.

When people do this, they come off as if they don’t care about other people. If you are a boss, you shouldn’t do this.

So, now I have to take my laptop and move into an empty conference room just to concentrate and attempt to get work done.

Anyone that thinks an open office layout is a good idea should be shot. It is fucking awful and since my place of work decided to do this everyone is less productive. In fact, many people left to go to another job and more folks (myself included) want to leave.

An open layout can take a job that you really love and turn it into a job that you hate. This is what has happened to me and my job.

Texting and emailing around people….and other bullshit

Something I’ve been noticing happening lately has been annoying the shit out of me. Texting or emailing when others are in your presence. I don’t mean just when in public, I mean when others are immediately around you and may want to talk to you or may already be talking to you. I have friends that do this. Total bullshit. Sometimes I’m in the middle of saying something to them and they get their phone out and reply to a text or email. What the fuck? I know they are not paying attention to me. Hell, anymore I just stop talking. I either walk away or when they look at me because I stopped talking I say “I’ll wait” in a very sarcastic manner. I am no longer going to deal with this stupid ass behavior. Good grief folks we are grown adults. It is rude and inconsiderate to do this to people. In fact I can’t even believe that people do it and think that it’s OK. What the fuck!!

The same goes for jackasses that are texting while driving. Sometimes they are not driving but they are texting at a traffic light and I have to fucking beep at them to get their ass moving when the light turns green. It’s funny because most of the time when I beep at them they see that they are about 3 cars behind the guy in front of them they fucking punch it and speed off like crazy. Seriously? You’re an idiot! I didn’t beep because I wanted you to begin a race to pass everyone in front of you. Dumbass. It’s like they are trying to save face so they speed up thinking it will make up for their inadequacies. Nope.

Total Assclowns.
