A note to my coworker ...

Dear next door stall neighbor: I never thought to check voice mail from the ####ter: revolutionary!

However, I think responding to a few of the voice mails was sort of, well, odd. I'll be listening more closely to your voice mails in the future though, to see if I can figure out where you're leaving them from.

And didn't you realize someone was in the next stall? Closed door not give it away?

If you did know, that shows a whole 'nother level of trust (or naivete or recklessness) leaving voice mails when the person one stall over could erupt. Loudly.

Dear Coach Dick,

Your player had five fouls. I know you think it was my mistake and all but I'm the official book so that means you can kiss my ###. And the other book guy had the same thing, too. So you can suck it. And making a big scene in front of the whole crowd makes you look like an ###.

And your players hate you. I know cuz they tell me all the time.

And sorry for calling you a #### to your players. Not very professional on my part. But you should know they call you worse.

There's a reason no one gets along with you at this school. And there's a reason you bounce from job to job every 2-3 years. You're a ####.

Learn to relax a little.

#### off,

Pick

O Rly?

We have a "poop-talker" at work too. Has entire conversations on the can. He doesn't hide it from the people his is talking to. Usually sounds something like this "Hey, whats up. Uuuuuugh! What? I'm taking a dump at work. What that? Uuuugh."Wish I was making this up.

To the guy who failed to wash his hands after taking a dump in the men's room this morning:

Thank you for confirming the need for my habit of opening bathroom doors with a towel after washing my hands.

*Electricity goes out at work

*Everybody is in cafeteria waiting for an update

*A department manager says the following

"So does this mean we don't have water either?"

*I immediately get up from table and walk away

If your workplace ran on well water, it wouldn't be that bad of a question.
HAIKU style

Everything shades of grey.

People who work on the same floor as me. After you are done doing your thing in the bathroom please squirt the soap in your hand then take a step to your left and use one of the other 3 sinks so I don't have to stand there like an idiot waiting for you to finish washing your hands so I can get to the soap.

To all concerned...

Before you send out an email please triple-check to make sure everything is correct. Your one little mistake can cause a snowball effect of epic proportions.

A perfect example from earlier today:

John sends out an email but forgets to add the attached newsletter.

7 people, yes SEVEN people reply-all that the attachment is missing.

John resends the email with the attachment.

4 people reply-all that there is an error on the newsletter.

John resends the corrected email.

2 people reply-all with 'thanks for fixing that'

That's 15 emails, people. While this is an extreme case it is not all that rare.

Dear Division President,

Yes, I think it's hilarious that you're banging the sales manager (the one that's still married). I think it's hilarious when I catch you glaring at me for staring at her huge ###. In fact, this is now my favorite game, by the way. I find it amusing that you can't find a nice piece outside of the office. I also think it's very funny when you refuse to speak to me when we're both getting coffee or passing in the hall etc., y'know, like a 12 year old? That's why I was laughing this morning when I was getting coffee.

Just so you know, she propositioned me the day before my wedding last year. I declined.

Oh, and she has a mustache.

Regards,

Mookie

Dear MookieWe do not bang, we make love. She is lost in the sea of a loveless marriage but for the sake of the children she stays with him even though he treats her poorly and she swears that she will leave him soon. Her ### might be huge but she has a thyroid problem for which she is taking a series of experimental drugs and other treatments hopefully the data scrounged from this will eventually help all women suffering from Thyroidurally Enduced Big ### Syndrome (T.E.B.A.S.). I do not speak to you because frankly your lack of basic hygiene physically hurts my nose and offends my taste buds. When she propositioned you the day before your wedding she felt that you deserved a pity @$%#.The mustache thing well damn ya she's got a furry lip but frankly it turns me on. Glad we got this sorted out.Sincerely,Division PresidentP.S. Check your inbox for your pink slip. It's been nice working with you.

I want to be left alone when I eat. I would think you could figure that out considering I have told you 1000 times. Dont talk to me, dont sit down next to me, dont even look at me.

This one has just one soap dispenser located on the wall next to the far right sink.

Don't forget the people who, after they get the paper towel from the dispenser, continue to stand directly in front of the dispenser so that nobody else can get to the dispenser until they've finished drying their hands. Two of them were in the men's room at the same time today, occupying both dispensers despite there being plenty of room to step away and let others use them. So there I stood with dripping wet hands while these two yutzes blithely dried away for 15 or 20 seconds, oblivious to anyone else nearby and "excuse me."

I found this thread for the first time yesterday, while sitting in a 2 full day training session. Thanks to this, not only do I have not a single clue what the training was about, but I periodically burst out laughing at least 15 times.

Good thing nearly everyone reports to me.

I was secretly praying that the last post would be, "Dear Boss making attend this stupid ### training"

Dear former co-worker, hypochondriac, crazy lady

You’re apparently a life-coach. For who? I sure hope they don’t follow your example because they’ll likely end up worse than they are now. You can't get your own poop in a group, and you’re supposed to mentor other people to be better in life?

1) You are completely unreasonable and quite often a complete and utter bwitch to your colleagues. When someone calls you on it, you literally begin crying and playing the victim because everyone is so mean to you. This is a repetitive cycle and everyone’s caught on.

2) Thanks for emailing in sick that day with the very graphic and detailed description of how your dogs had vomited and added that it was so disgusting that you then began to vomit all over the place, which with then followed by you having diarrhea throughout the night. At least you didn’t include pics.

3) Thanks for the email stating that you were going to be late the other day. Your cable wasn’t working last night, you say? So you’re going to wait until 8 am to go to the store to buy batteries in case it’s the batteries in the remote that aren’t working. Interesting. Then, if that doesn’t work, you’re going to call the cable company to see when they can come for a service call. Of course, by the time you got your batteries and made the service call, they couldn’t come until later that day and you had to wait around for them, just in case they came early. Right.

4)This past Monday was “Family Day,” a relatively new holiday in our province, and we Federal employees don’t get that day off. Imagine everyone’s surprise when you were “sick” on Monday. I’m glad that you took the time to explain that your dogs are like family and that since it was Family Day, afterall, it was better for you to stay at home with your “family”.

Please find a new job.

Dear Building Manager;

When we let you know about a particular toilet that auto-flushes twice before a human can get their pants up and out of the stall, we did not mean for you to send around the maintenance guy to adjust it so that it now flushes whenever it senses any motion whatsoever. Today the ####### thing flushed twice before I even sat down, and then just chugged away after I got up from dropping a deuce. For all I know it's still in there hard at work sending imaginary turds to the sewer plant.

Thanks

Water Conservation Staff.

I've gone on the record in this thread stating my disdain for people who microwave fish at the office, but some of you people are just a smidgen over the top.

Yes, some idiot microwaved fish. It stunk up a good portion of our work area and considering the microwave is about 10 paces from my cube, I'm just as disgusted as the rest of you. Especially since the kitchen area is right next to the men's washroom (that smells like the slums of Calcutta at the best of times) and got infinitesimally worse with the added odour of overcooked, microwaved fish.

But, was it really necessary to form what can only be described as a lynch mob to find the culprit? Marching up and down the halls almost yelling "who microwaved the fish?" and then berating the girl for a few minutes, might have been a little excessive. While it was funny as hell to see, do you think it might have been a little over the top?

At the end of the day though, mission accomplished. I don't think anyone will be microwaving fish here again. So, for that, I am thankful.

But, was it really necessary to form what can only be described as a lynch mob to find the culprit? Marching up and down the halls almost yelling "who microwaved the fish?" and then berating the girl for a few minutes, might have been a little excessive. While it was funny as hell to see, do you think it might have been a little over the top?

At the end of the day though, mission accomplished. I don't think anyone will be microwaving fish here again. So, for that, I am thankful.

To all concerned...Before you send out an email please triple-check to make sure everything is correct. Your one little mistake can cause a snowball effect of epic proportions. A perfect example from earlier today:John sends out an email but forgets to add the attached newsletter.7 people, yes SEVEN people reply-all that the attachment is missing.John resends the email with the attachment.4 people reply-all that there is an error on the newsletter.John resends the corrected email.2 people reply-all with 'thanks for fixing that'That's 15 emails, people. While this is an extreme case it is not all that rare.

Dear Assistant Dean/Vice-Principal Type Broad,Thank you for doing exactly what I described above. Sending out an email without the promised attachments is getting to be the norm around here. I'm almost used to it. I'm also getting used to seeing the soon-to-follow email with the subject title of "OOPS!".Today, however, I think you outdid yourself. You sent out the Summer School email without the promised attachment to not only the entire school but the ENTIRE DISTRICT. All 6 schools. Kudos.So far I have 9 emails from people asking/telling you about the missing attachments. Cool
