We have one of those too!

and... we have one that ALWAYS talks baby talk, and then she has to put stress on every syllable of a word for example, "may I pretty please have a sig-a-na-ture on my check? Pretty please?"

Come on, Really?

LOL, no, that's not his name, but at least I feel a little better knowing that others are dealing with this type as well. It is incredible to me that a grown man needs this much attention from anyone! Sadly, but not surprisingly, the supervisor seems totally oblivious to what is happening.

Sounds like he needs the talking I got from my dad the first day I went to work. He drove me there and before I got out of the truck he said,

"Remember, if you have to tell everyone what a good job you did, it must not have been very good. If you do a good job, someone will notice."

Has stuck in my head for 25 years.

Anywhere I want to be
Co-workers that don't want to take responsibility for anything. I love how they send emails whining to change something, but they won't touch the doc's themselve because you can track who made the changes.

Plus how they try to pawn work off. I've got enough to do of my own.

I have a cube mate that every time I ask a direct question to someone else, she answers!!!!!!!!!! UGH
She smells so bad and her hair is greasy enough for me to fry eggs on! When she comes to my cube she feels the need to plop down right next to me and invade my personal space with her yellow teeth!
And she has gnats flying around, promise ya!!

Everything you've done, she's done it 10 x more!!

I just want to scream at the top of my lungs !!


oh and she is from Chicago/Wisconsin so everything she says ends in "ya knoooowww" ughhh ok I'm done now.

Years ago I worked with a supervisor who hawked and cleared his throat (disgustingly loud) when he got on the phone. Unfortunately, he always did it AFTER he dialed and the other party had picked up. Egad! He called me twice and that was enough... I never picked up his calls again. Wrote notes instead.

I will say that after going to a school with a large population of Chicagoland people that they have the most annoying accents in the world.

Grrr...

There is not just one Chicago accent. There is a difference, for example, between Bridgeport (where Mayor Daley and my FIL was from), the far North Side (daughter's hospital is at), and then there is the rest of the state. I'm from west of ChiTown.

The most obvious (even when I hear myself speak), are the strong pronunciations of "ae" and "aw." I can hear it strongly when I say "Chicago accent." (Chicawgo Ae-ccent)
On the other hand, I am one who thinks that pronouncing "cot" and "cought" or "Don" and "Dawn" the same sounds funny.

But I don't care, as long as you call it Pop and not Soda. smile wink
