Rant: Speak When Spoken To


Youve reached the office of Mr. Copy Machine

Dear co-worker in the copy room collating copies:

Perhaps I have intruded upon your happy finger paper cut job of collating what looks to be mindless business propaganda, but I said hello and asked how you were doing.  Usually it is nice to receive some sort of eye contact and audible reply other than a low pathetic murmur and overall lack of response.  It could be that you are still entirely overwhelmed as you were last week when you BARGED into MY office and lamented on the anxiety attack you were having, but I guess I was the moron that listened to your problems and tried to offer comfort and advice as you sought.

Don’t be a butthead to those that live in the office with you because you’re having a crappy day.  Other people have problems too but manage to suck it up and do what needs to be done.

Non-Sweet Office

This morning a co-worker came in to my office and said “I think this is so sweet, we should send a message like this everyday!”  She hands me a sugar packet and on the back it says “Being sweet is contagious.  Spread it around.”  She thinks a daily message of this caliber sent to the entire office is just THE THING to do.

Now, I ask you – (besides this genius) what employee wants a message from their office manager EVERY DAY telling them they should be “sweet”?  I would have to stock vomit bags in the supply room.
