People who don't appreciate the talent lost when an actress leaves Eastenders.

Yeah we like to queue, so ******* what? You think it's hilarious that we prefer a system that is ordered and fair for all, rather than your obviously much better technique of aggressive shoving, elbows and chaos? STFU about queueing. Queueing is great.


I think we all like a queue, they are homely and you can perceive progress - but they are not necessarily fair.
Queueing only reflects the "first come : first served principle". It disproportionately rewards those with the means to attend a location in advance of the specified time. They reward failure, too; be here for 6, converts to arriving at 0530 to be at the front of the queue. That was not the task you were set. Fail)
It is not democratic as it does not permit people to voice differences in opinion as to the order people move along the queue - let alone the shape or direction of the queue.
It is not not meritocratic : people with greatest need are rarely shuffled to the front.

I could go on, I have queued a lot and had time to rally my thoughts against them. I have tried the alternative to queuing, you know - like in foreign places, and I didn't like it. Everyone just pushed in!!

Very good points. This reminds me of all inclusive buffets. If you haven't thrown away all intrinsic courtesy by day two, your family will perish. By day three I'm so psyched up at dinner, people clear a space by way of primal instinct, subconsciously aware their very lives are in danger.

People from Brighton who take a dump on the floor.......

It's even the same at breakfast in business hotels.

You'd think that it was the last meal everyone is going to have for a week!

And don't get me started on hotel toasters.

Colleagues who want to communicate via talking, which generally involves small talk, rather than just emailing me.

I don't care what you watched on TV last night and you don't really care whether I'm "alright" or not, so let's not bother asking and get on with our work, shall we?

Agreed.
Any Lync message that starts "Hello, how are you?" puts my teeth on edge.
"What do you want?, tell me now or **** off"

saxoneagle 18-05-2016 01:44 PM

Also, if my office door is shut, that doesn't mean waltz on in.

Knock, and when I don't answer, **** off back to your desk and do some work.

Something I cannot ******* stand.

I work in an office with mainly women. The way they speak about men actually is too much sometimes. Just because i'm quiet and don't particularly like any of them, doesn't mean I don't think its wrong. Imagine if it was the other way around :clown:

Also. My Supervisor, (who I actually get on well with) whose parents were originally from Jamaica. Speaks like someone from London/Croydon/Whatever, but when she speaks to the other lady in the office from Jamaica, or when she's trying to rant about something, would go from a London accent into a really convincing Jamaican one. We get it, you're Jamaican, you don't talk like that usually, so why are you doing that accent. STFU.

We have a good mix of people in our office: women I don't like and men I don't like.

I've got to do a "personality assessment" training thing in a few weeks' time and my initial summary makes it sound like I don't like people - that's not true, I just don't like the ones I work with and I was told to answer the personality questionnaire based on my work life, not my social one.

I can't wait to sit in a room with them all and tell them I don't like them.

(I've invited them all out on Friday. I'm hoping nobody shows up!)
