Pet Peeves

Postby Mother Theresa » 14 Aug 2007, 13:43

Strangely, it's been a few years since we've had a general gripe thread.

Perhaps it's time for a new one.

In any event, I wish to bitch about the insensitive jerks who constantly pick up all of the docs from the printer, without looking to see if it's all theirs, so when I (and presumably other victims) get to the printer my document is not there, the culprit who stole it is gone, and I have to go back and print it again. :fume:

When there's no hook on the door of a public toilet stall. Do they expect me to put my belongings on the urine-soaked floor?

Lunch Meetings.
I always think lunch break is my own free time. I don't like to work and have lunch with my supervisor during my private time. It makes me have stomachache. :(

People that start threads about pet peeves and people that chew with their mouths open. Oh and poeple that respond to being the person that started a thread about pet peeves (that is my biggest pet peeve).

People who write about people with pet peeves about people who start threads about pet peeves and also a pet peeve about people who follow up about a pet peeve about people who have pet peeves about people who write about people who write about people with pet peeves about people who start threads about pet peeves. God that was exhausting. I have a pet peeve about that too.

Funny, mine is similar. I hate people that leave their shitty documents in the printer tray so that when I come and collect my important stuff I end up stapling their crap at the arse end of my pile. Invariably they'll print the damned things again! :fume:
