My manager told me in my annual performance review that he appreciates me, and that didn't bother me at all. Frankly, it's been a tough year for all of us, and I was happy to hear it.

Why are you answering the phone if you don't know the number? If it's important, they'll leave a voicemail.

Is the proper phrase "I just text you" or "I just texted you"? This drives me insane.

It's "I text-ED you". Drives me insane when people say "i just text you".

We had a guy who would use three commas instead of periods. I called him Comma Chameleon, in honor of Culture Club.

I'm hoping he has access to color printing, and that those 3 commas are "red, gold, and green".

Instead of asking to repeat something, “say what?” Or the more common “yep”
