SHUT THE FCUK UP! ARRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH

One of my colleagues has been practically SHOUTING greasy platitudes down the phone to a client for the last half an hour and it is driving me insane.

I just want a peaceful morning, so shut up and send a FCUKING email.

    I have a couple of guys in the next door bay who argue like a married couple, one has that reasonable I'm-a-censored -but-I'll-make-you-feel-unreasonable voice, and the other is really whiney. Arrgghhh.

    If they're anything like the people in our office, if you make a noise as loud as a mouse who has lost it's voice you'll get asked to keep it down as you're disturbing them. :roll:

    Set the fire alarm off, they'll have to leave the building then.

    Start telling racist / sexist / homophobic jokes. That soon makes an office go v quiet. Probably.

    Just walk over and tighten his tie to the point that breathing is hard, that'll quiet him down a bit.

    Tie? Not in my office!

    and guarentees a trip to HR for a very noisy telling off / disciplinary!

    Especially as the colleague concerned is a black fella...

    What about wiring his phone earpiece to mains live, and his chair to earth. Should keep him quiet (permanently) after a short yelp. :twisted:

    Plus it'll probably blow your main fuse and you can all have a couple of hours off.

    One of my colleagues types harder than anyone I've ever heard. He listens to 'happy hardcore' while working (whatever that is :? ) He's gone through 3 keyboards in a year - mostly due to the Return key going into orbit. He might be angry. :evil:

    As for the guy that insits on eating his breakfast at his desk. I don't want to hear the chink of spoon on bowl while I'm working at 10.30am. It's a quiet open office customer facing envronment. Or am I just being intolerant?

    And sniffing. Why can't people use a fcuking tissue. I've got it in stereo. BLOW YOUR FCUKING NOSE!!!!! ARE YOU 5????

    Sorry. I feel better though.

    Don't you miss all the amusing and distinctive ring tones that broadcast their individuality?

    I got a guy that sits behind me and I can hear him eat. Not the crunch of the food... oh no... I can hear his tongue slapping around his mouth as he chews his food, which I can also hear! FCUKING ANNOYING, if it was school I'd have cussed his mum and had a fight behind the bike shed by now.... I wish they'd allow that at work, the amount of people I'd take down....

    Yes, deeply, more than I can express. And the fact that they call everyone DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHLING at the tops of their voices so the rest of the office can hear that they have a friend. :roll:

    Anyone else work for a media company - even the postroom call everyone Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahling & as for the Marketing dept............

    Nathan Barley was unnervingly accurate.

    Anthrax in the cocaine, could make the office much quieter.
