What grinds my gears (today)

DeeDee Adelaide
When there’s 3 of you sitting in an office pod and one of you hasn’t gotten around to watching Game of Thrones yet and won’t let the other two say a single word about it.

    I was getting ready to vent about people driving 65 in the left lane but your post cracked me up.  :lol:  *So* relatable in my workplace today!

    Also, when you’ve been at work for an hour and then realise you have a stain on your shirt. This is not my day.

    We just sat our 18 month old in her crib with a plate of spaghetti and a baba and said "good luck" while we were rushing to watch as it aired


    (we didnt do that, dont call CPS)

    Well, I’m wound up now so I’m going to add anyone who responds to you with “You do realise...?” 

    You do realise you’re a condescending twat, right? (No one here, btw.)

  • Yeah, with GoT, all bets are off. We watch it exactly at the time it airs, otherwise it's spoilers everywhere!

    This seems like legit parenting to me, as long as you didn't give her a fork...

    I started a Slack chat room at work last week for the final season. Within 15 minutes someone had come in and demanded that we thread conversations so people who hadn't seen the episode yet wouldn't be spoiled. I told them to piss off--this is a GOT chat and if you're here before you've seen the episode, that is on you.

    @Frakkin T Yeah, that’s some outrageous entitlement. As someone who has no choice but to watch it later than the US due to time zones, I hate spoilers on news sites and whatnot where you wouldn’t necessarily expect to find them, but in something specifically set up to discuss it - just don’t go there!

    Easy. You look them square in the eyes and say "All we want to talk about is Game of Thrones, and we can't because of you. This is your fault, so now you have to come up with the topic of conversation for the pod. If it isn't as interesting as talking about the new Game of Thrones episode, then you're going to have to either go home or plug your ears."

  • Clearly the answer is to call in sick every Monday for the next 6 weeks so you can watch it when it airs!

    God no. He’s one of those dudes who is fixated on topics of particular interest to himself and will bang on about them ad nauseum, even when I have bluntly stated, “I have no interest in this topic.” My hard rule is never give him an opening and never ask him a question.

    I did set up my schedule to leave as early as possible on Mondays for the next 6 weeks. The downside is that I now have to work till 5:20 today and each Tuesday and Wednesday when I would normally finish at 3:50.

    I used to share an office with a guy who clipped his nails all the time. Went to borrow a paperclip from his desk one day on to discover that he kept an old paperclip box in his desk filled with all his nail clippings.

    One of my first experiences on a city bus in my college days involved my unacquainted seat mate pulling off their shoes and clipping toenails. 

    Most uncomfortable ride of my life.

  • Men are disgusting sometimes. Not all men, but they can take office hygiene to some pretty dark lows.
  • Oh is this a thread to complain about IRL stuff we can't complain about IRL? Because I have some relatives who fucked off to Canada because of Vietnam in the 70s and have lived there since. I spent some time with them last week and they couldn't stop talking about how much they watch Rachel Maddow and how terrible everything is in the US etc etc. I don't blame them for their decision in the 70s and I don't blame them for watching Rachel Maddow but you haven't lived in the US for almost 50 years so can you please just STOP!

    Whew, I feel better

    Agreed.  I work with a lot of guys and you can definitely tell the difference between how my office smells (a hint of Bath & Body Works scents usually), and how theirs smells (they share an office).  I mean, I know it's #notallmen.  Just saying, I do appreciate a well-groomed guy who smells great though.

    This totally feels like when you're young and all "ew, boys are stinky!".  lol
