    A Place to Rant About People at Work

    Hi there. As per the header, here we will have the opportunity to spout off about people at work that drive us bananas. Don't feel restricted, you can fell free to vent about co-workers, clients, passerby, looky-loos, Street Walkers....you name it.

    We can all keep ourselves out of trouble by NOT using peoples' real names, I would hasten to say.

    As the originator of the thread, I get to start...
    At work tonight, I received a routine complaint. Party #1 is upset because part #2 is calling their residence frequently, using profane language, etc. Seen it a million times. Here's the stupid part....neither party has an active phone number!!!!!!. How the heck do you harass someone over the phone if YOU don't have a phone number and neither do they???? Suffice to say the file is "Still Under Investigation" or as we like to say "shredder bound". Ugh.

    I love my job.

    I work at Wal Mart and there is this old guy named Jim that works in the evenings. It is not the guy that you have seen me post on here next to Malcolm McDowell, it is another guy. Anyway this guy gets mad if you do too much work and gets mad if you do too little. Because he only liked to do certain things. There is no pleasing him. One moring I was still working past till 7 AM and he comes in and he gives me the dirtiest look as if to say "what are you still doing here?! " He always complains how things don't get rotated, but he is the worst one at it.
    Plus my last manager he was the biggest, most arrogant arse I have ever met. He was all braun no brains. He even admitted it to another coworker that he was. He said, "Well, I don't always get everything done in the logical sense, ohhh... but I get alot of stuff put up." The guy was a narccisist. He had like 50 pounds of gel in his hair and he basically took a bath in his cologne. His name was Don. When I would come into the dairy in the morning I would always have to say, "Man, it reeks of Don back here!!"
    He would always order WAY...... too much of everything. It was almost impossible to find the shortest date of an item because he would order so many of the same thing. Once he had so many lemon yogurts that I was able to take all of them and create a section on the shelf like 3 feet wide and 1 1/2 feet deep of them. He would never check on the things that were selling or weren't selling. He would just go up to an empty spot and say "oh we're out of that, let's order more!" and I said "uh Don, that's out because I just pulled it all from it going out of date." He would reply with a dumbfounded "uhhhhhhhhh.........OHHH!!" At a point in the fall I remember we were really short handed and I usually had to work by myself on a Sunday in which nothing could be stocked constantly. You're talking about the biggest-fastest moving department in the store, 1 person, on a Sunday. I was not feeling the best to begin with, almost didn't feel like coming to work at all that day. So I was going to be inefficient in the first place. Let's just say the place was trashed when I left. I can say that we won the war but didn't mean we didn't go unscathed.
    I could have easily stayed another 5 hours getting the place set up again to make it look like he wanted. I came in the next morning and he gave me a dirty look the first time I spotted him.
    And I knew he was going to ask his dumb arse question "what happened?" So I was prepared with a "smart arse" response.
    He asks "uhhhhhhhhh.........what HAPPened.....!"
    I responded....ready......
    "OUR VERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRY BEST!!!!!!!!!"
    That didn't settle with him too well, but it was the truth.
    No matter how I die, even if there is a suicide note; it was murder. Cheers!
    MWHAHAHAHA!

    I work with a woman who does very little but is getting real chummy with the new boss. so she basically gets away with murder. She tries to talk to everybody all day and bores the crap out of all of us with her narrow minded views of life and what her kids did recently that she thought was funny.

    "Bait was a really funny movie" she'll say, to which I'll avoid eye contact and mutter, "uh huh".

    I tell you, there should be some sort of legislature that gets the NERF™ bat rule implemented across the country.

    I love to listen to ranting. I do it for a living. Therapeutic, don't you think? The ranting I mean, not the listening.

    Good rants so far, guys, and I know a good rant when I hear one!

    It is like opening the flood gates with me. If I were to start, I'm afraid that it could only end in bloodshed and a conviction.

    I want to rant about someone at work, and it's not just today but EVERY day this happens. There's this guy at work and he NEVER does ANY work. He just sits at the desk all day doing nothing! His work is piling higher and higher but he does nothing. He thinks just because he's high up he doesn't have to push himself. All he seems to do is go on the internet on some forum somewhere .

    Oh, wait...

    ...

    It seems to be weekly problems here. Last week there was this guy who kept calling up while he was...errr....ummm....giving himself a hand and wanted to talk about Viagra. Luckily, I only got him once, but that was enough to rattle my nerves. I don't spend much time on the phone (about an hour a day), but when I do it can get really ugly.

    I get to cover reception here every couple of months and I just love the people who call in.

    We're a health information institute, which means we gather data and write and produce reports, and one day I had a guy call up from Kosovo looking for a liver to be transplanted.

    I quickly transferred him to our Toronto office.
