Sounds like you're a little cranky today. My pet peeve is the office ladies who get annoyed at everything too easily. :)

Just playing with you. I really HATE when people come to work obviously sick and contagious. I don't need their sickness. Also, when people use speakerphone EVERY time they're on the phone. If you're the only person on your end of the conversation, pick up the handset and stop yelling.

I hate when I bring in my lunch and everyone is so curious about what I'm eating. When I'm in the pantry heating it up, when i'm walking it back to my desk, when I'm eating at my desk.
I've actually responded "my lunch" when someone asked me what was in the container.

I hate having to be politically correct and professional. Boo freaking hoo!
Everyone has emotions now at work! You can't say anything without hurting someone's feelings.
There is a group of us that tell each other to shut up when we see each other(instead of hi or good morning). it is a great stress breaker. You have to yell it too! I walk in to the office, say good morning to a couple of people, and tell a guy to shut up! And then he says "No! You need to shut up!"
People freak out all the time over it! It is hilarious!
It makes my day.

I am very lucky, my office is the cab of a track-hoe so I am the only one that will fit in there, but then you have your concrete drivers that get stuck and you have to go pull them out and then fix their water hose and I could go on and on, so lets see if someone reads this and comes clean with what happened.:wink::wink::wink:

Although I love my office, my business and my co-workers there is one thing my closest co-worker does that just irritates me. Shes in the office next to mine and she talks ALOUD to herself alot. So at first I thought she was talking to me and was always asking her to repeat herself, now I dont even pay attention to her and she thinks Im ignoring her. LOL Its a lose lose situation!

Youíre eating that? Donít you know that it:
A) causes heart disease/cancer/kills dolphins/destroys the rainforest?
B) is better/cheaper/more at store X?
C) is made from dogs/worms/people/lips and etc.?
D) I make that at home and mine is so much better than whatever youíre having.

I hate when accounting or purchasing emails me to contact a vendor about an invoice. Uh not my job!

I hate when I'm sitting at my desk eating - clearly on mu "lunch" - and my boss ask me the status of something.

I hate when my senior manager threatens to move our desk to closer to his because we aren't being productive enough but he is the one that has held onto a correction report for 2 weeks and has yet to approve my corrective action plan.

Llamafighter, what did you have for lunch today at your toilet? . . . I mean desk.:scared0015::laugh:

Your office desk harbors far more bacteria than your workplace restroom, and if you're a woman, chances are your workspace has more germs than your male co-workers', a new research report shows.

Women have three to four times the number of bacteria in, on and around their desks, phones, computers, keyboards, drawers and personal items as men do, the study by University of Arizona professor Charles Gerba showed. Gerba, a professor of soil, water and environmental sciences, tested more than 100 offices on the UA campus and in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oregon and Washington, D.C. The $40,000 study was commissioned by the Clorox Co.

"I thought for sure men would be germier," Gerba said. "But women have more interactions with small children and keep food in their desks. The other problem is makeup."

Don't get Gerba wrong: Women's desks typically looked cleaner. But the knickknacks are more abundant, and cosmetics and hand lotions make prime germ-transfer agents, Gerba said. Makeup cases also make for fine germ homes, along with phones, purses and desk drawers.

Food in desk drawers also harbors lots of microorganisms, and it is more abundant among female office workers. Gerba found 75 percent of women had munchies in their desks.

"I was really surprised how much food there was in a woman's desk," he said. "If there's ever a famine, that's the first place I'll look for food."

The news isn't all negative for the fairer sex.

Gerba found the worst overall office germ offender is men's wallets.

"It's in your back pocket where it's nice and warm, it's a great incubator for bacteria," Gerba said.

Another hot spot for bacteria in men's offices: the personal digital assistant.

"Men tend to play with their Palm Pilots more," Gerba said. "I think they're playing video games or something."

The average office desktop has 400 times more bacteria than the average office toilet seat, Gerba said.

Gerba said using a hand sanitizer and using a disinfectant on office surfaces helps, with 25 percent fewer bacteria found on surfaces that were regularly disinfected. Once-a-day use should be sufficient.

"You don't have to go crazy with it, but with the key areas, desktops, phones and keyboards probably need to be disinfected once in a while," he said.

My favorite when I was working ED was when a mom would bring a small baby in at 3 am saying, "He keeps crying at night!" And of course by then the kid is sleeping with not a thing wrong with him/her. :rolleyes:

Or the time a mom brought her 10 year old in for having a black tongue. The attending looked in his mouth and asked, "Son, what have you been eating today?" Kid answered, "Oreos." :laugh:

I have horror stories of my own from the Peds ER (Peds scares the hell outta me :unsure-1:).

I took my son to ER one Saturday just sure he would need fluids. He was very sick and every couple of days would drink just enough. Then he went all day and night without peeing so after not being able to get him to drink it was off to the ER. As soon as the doc walks in and I say he hasn't pee'd he says, "But I have to go NOW." And sure enough he did. . And to top it off he comes out of the bathroom and says, "I want a hamburger!" The doc quietly starts writing, hands me my walking papers, and says, "Go get him a hamburger" and walks out. :ashamed::angry::ashamed:

I was lucky enough to get my kids to make me look like a nutty mom/liar at the pediatrician's office instead of the ED. Our ED visits always ended up with Hannah having to be held down by 3 nurses, a tech, me, and a doc to get anything done. Guess those TKD classes really help her defend herself. :laugh: Then of course she'd have a reaction to any meds they gave her and she'd bust out with hives all over and they'd have to treat that....she's one of those people with a long list of allergies and she's only 11. I can't wait for her to be labeled "drug seeker" for listing her allergies. :unsure-1:
