OT-Someone remind me that I am opposed to torture
Cuz i am near to causing physical pain to the guy who is across the cube wall from me. he has been blathering on all day on the phone trying to get a new truck. allllllllllllllllllllllllllll day! all day. seriously...ALL DAY!

and he isn't being quiet. The guy who sits across the room from him just asked me what kind of truck the guy is looking to buy. :rollseyes: there is no way i should know how much this guy is putting down, what his payments are going to be, who he is getting his insurance with, etc etc etc.

and i shouldn't know that he is indignant about his interest rate....even though he was blabbing on about getting his water shut off from not being paid a few weeks ago!

The attorney general says it is only torture if it causes organ failure or death right? :thinking: I think i can work in those guidelines.

:devil:

Here's what you should do. Pick up your phone and call ME, and explain LOUDLY how you can't get any work done because the damn guy next to you is talking so FREAKING LOUDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!

and maybe he'll get the point.

He has two eyes. YOu have two knitting needles. Oh, are eyes organs? :D I'm so glad I work for myself. If the person in the next cubicle starts talking to loud I need to see a psychiatrist!

Next time it happens, talk about FEMALE problems! That'll shut him the he|| up! We have a gal over the wall from us that freaks out if she hears anyone's conversation, no matter how benign, but she'll call everyone in her family to talk about her new minivan and the fact that it replaces the one that was in an accident... then talk about the accident.
Freaks, all of 'em!

Isn't there a law that says when people are annoying, you are in fact allowed to kill them? I'm sure this must be the case in some states like Texas and California. :thinking:

we have a guy who makes farting noises all day and it does drive us crazy. it has almost become a nervous tick though. he use to say "no!" all day long in the same voice our Operations Manager would use when he was just telling us NO (to whatever) because he didn't want to do something. he has moved on to the farting noise now.... :rollseyes:

Do these "noisy" guys actually get any work done or are they suddenly quiet when management is around?
