Some friends of mine had a loony downstairs old man. He was constantly lodging noise complaints against them, knocking on the ceiling & banging on their door. He couldn't ever make anything stick with the management, so he eventually took them to small claims court. And LOST. The judge laid the fuck into him for being an eccentric old coot that needed to get a hobby. Eventually my friends decided to move & the old guy was ecstatic. On their last day I was helping Joe pack up his last few things, it was a little before noon & old guy was at the door bitching because we were being too loud. I guess our bubble wrap was too loud. So we turned on the music after he left & rocked out the rest of the day.

That crazy old bat downstairs. No seriously, that's what the building manager calls her. My downstairs neighbour is going senile. She bangs on the ceiling when we are doing "noisy" things like washing the dishes, making dinner, doing yoga, or walking around the apartment. Yesterday she complained to the landlord because I was changing the bag in the garbage can. She CRANKS her TV or stereo whenever she hears anything approaching the strains of music from my apartment - and let me state that my stereo system at this point consists of a Sony Discman hooked up to a pair of computer speakers. Honestly. And not only noise from my apartment, but noise of any kind from anyone. She is crazy as a loon and she is making me very, very, very angry. They can't evict her (yet), although because I've complained about her, they did send her a warning letter yesterday.

Living at a busy intersection on a major emergency route through the city-at least every 30 minutes there's an enormous onslaught of sirens and blaring horns at all hours of the day. Oh how I love being woken up by fire trucks at 6 a.m. Of course I feel bad for complaining cuz i know those sirens mean someone needs help. Just a very unpleasant and jarring noise :P

I agree so hard AP! I hate people who talk like little children. If you are of a certain age (ie. not a toddler) you should know how to speak properly.

People (in the tradition of Rachel Ray) that use ridiculous baby words when talking food. I like food that tastes good, not food that is "numnums" or "yummo".

Okay, not to be redundant, but.....why am I here at work? There is no one in accounting - surprise, they are all home with their families for Christmas Eve - so we here in Player Services can't even issue a fucking prize cheque until Tuesday anyway. Who plans this shit?

anti-cob: I'm very glad I made the decision to apply for another job.

I feel like I'm kind of owning this thread lately!

cob: why am I working on Christmas Eve? I know lots of people work on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day, even. But at the Lottery Corporation? Seriously? Honestly? Who cares if someone can't claim their big hoarded pile of scratch and wins until next Tuesday? I'm tired, and I want to go back to bed, wake up at noon, and eat bacon and eggs. I'll bet Mr. CEO Man is not working today.

Thanks for the empathy, ladies. nick, yeah, I've tried talking to the team leader. She kind of defends her on some things, pledges to talk to her about others, and then doesn't really deal with it properly (meaning: so that any real change happens). My team leader deals with things via positive reinforcement, when disciplinary action is what's really needed here. I was planning to document everything and go to our manager (who works in another town), but I'm starting to wonder what's the point. This woman has been here since her twenties, and she is 50 now. Nobody's going to do anything about her, if they haven't done it by now.

Which brings me to this morning's cob: she was a half hour late. Again. She was a half hour late yesterday too. And the boss says nothing.

(((doodle))) as an organized, deadline-conscious general do-gooder at work, i too hate picking up on lazy coworkers slack. but your sitch sounds totally ridic, especially if you're thinking of leaving. did you tell your boss - it's her or me? sounds like you have the upper hand. my friend did this. it took him months to get the courage but his boss sided with him and fired a lazy coworker that had been there for years and took her seniority for granted. he said his approach was respectful - no 'how could you keep this lazy sonofabitch on for so long?' kinda thing. and his boss even asked for his input when hiring a replacement.

It's pretty ironic that what I come in here to complain about most often is my co-worker situation. But seriously....

cob: WHY the fuck to people accomodate immature, passive-aggressive behaviour from co-workers and employees? WHAT THE FUCK? Seriously, am I the only one who is sick and fucking tired of accomodating the bullshit coming out of this lady? No wonder she gets away with it. Everyone - including the boss - is afraid to call her on it because she'll fucking sulk and slam doors and call in sick and get even more passive-aggressive. God, I fucking hate this dysfunctional crap. I hate it. It's wrong and it's mindfuckingly stupid, AND it makes my whole fucking department look bad. I would have fired her ass a long fucking time ago.

There's a new job in the paper. I'm applying for it. I wasn't sure, I was going to try to stay on here. But now I'm sure.

Also, I'M NOT GOING TO FUCKING ACCOMODATE IT! I don't give a rat's ass how other people feel about "not letting things escalate" or whatever. LET THEM FUCKING ESCALATE! This passive-aggressive bullshit is totally a form of power and control - it's a form of abusing one's position and totally a form of crazymaking with everyone around her - and it needs to be stopped. Let it escalate, let fucking Security escort her out the door because they've escalated so bad. Let it happen. BRING IT ON.

"Nude" stockings and shoes remind me of the "flesh" coloured crayon that used to come in the Crayola box. Nevermind the racist aspect of it - exactly WHOSE flesh was EVER this colour? Nobody I ever saw in my life.

cob: it's fucking cold. Really fucking cold. Twenty-two below, according to the CBC when I was getting ready this morning. I wore six layers just to get to work today, and that doesn't count the hat, sheepskin mittens, and extra scarves.

cob: the smoking pit is right outside my office window, and I'm right in the middle of quitting smoking.

cob: another co-worker complaint, but seriously - how does it take her an extra 2 hours to do the same amount of work I did today? 30 orders each for data processing. I was done before lunch. She's still working on it at 3:30 and just took another coffee break. And I've still had time to piss around on BUST and FB - what does she DO all day??? And it especially pisses me off that she's been here for 15 years and I've been here for 1....it's not just that the rest of us get dumped with the workload, but that this idiot makes a helluva lot more money than I do, plus has a really sweet benefits package, solely based on seniority.

cob: did I mention how cold I am? And that I still have to walk home in this?

The word "nude". I wanted a new pair of neutral suede pumps for NYE, I found them, but they are "nude". Meaning they are an off white colour. That is not "nude". Nothing that is ever "nude" is the same colour as my (Or anybody, really) being nude. "Nude" for me is a pale cafe aulait, not the same nondescript, inoffensive colour as the wallpaper in my dentist's office. My mother was fishbelly white (So white she had an undertone of blue), she could not wear "nude" pantyhose without looking ridiculous. My shoes are "nude", but "nude" for who?

I hate my co-worker. I've tried everything to make her feel more a part of the team. I've tried love and compassion, acceptance and inclusion.....I've even visited her garden and brought her pots of homemade jam. The boss is wrong. It's got nothing to do with whether or not she feels part of the group. She's just a lazy jerk who thinks the world owes her something and expects everyone else to pick up the slack.

It's 11 AM and she's taken 2 full-length breaks already.

I hate hate hate cars! They're such a huge waste of money. It's been one thing after another lately with my piece of shit car and of course it's right around the holidays so I have no money left to do any Christmas shopping. I'd say at least once a week I practically break down in frustration. I would love to move to a city where walking and public transit are viable options. But of course I can't afford that; the only reason I can afford my apartment now is because it's not up to code and should probably be condemned. So I'm trapped in this hole indefinitely. I should have just went to college right after high school and took out loans because that's what I'm going to have to do anyway. Now at this rate I will probably never finish school.

COBS, COBS, glorious COBS!!!! Frick, I'm mad as all hell!

So.........my co-worker and I talked to our boss this morning about our lazy co-worker. The boss downplayed it a bit, but promised to deal with things. Which she sort of will, but not really, because she doesn't believe in discipline, but "postive reinforcement." Which doesn't actually work on 50-year old women who are really 13 year old girls in terms of emotional maturity.

It so happened that my lazy co-worker slept in this morning, again. Arrived an hour late. Then after ONE HOUR at work, at the moment the mail (which is the pinnacle of our work day here) arrived, she decides to go out for a coffee break. (This is the co-worker who takes about 6 breaks a day, and only 2 of them are "official.") So I fucking called her on it. "Are you going out for a break?" I asked incredulously, in front of, well, the entire office. She said, "Yes." I said, "You've been here an HOUR, and the mail's here." And she said nothing, got all pissy looking, and came back inside, slammed the office door to hang her coat on its back, and pouted like....honestly, did I say like a 13 year old? Her stupid doughy face looked exactly like that of a mutinous, spoiled toddler!

And then are boss came in and tried to smooth things over, but it was wink-wink at me and telling my lazy co-worker that we need to all start communicating better. And then the boss sent her out for her damned break.

I hate people who act like fucking victims all the time. Victims of other people, victims of the world.....fuck that shit. You are only a victim if you choose to be one.

QUOTE(rogue @ Dec 9 2009, 05:58 AM) *
[font=Arial]Cob: She opens the cabinet by my desk, takes one look inside and says "I can't find them, can you just look?" I look at her and say "They're right there!" pointing it out kind of angrily, and I don't care. She's constantly asking me to do her work and I'm sick of it. "Office assistant" does not equal "here to do your job cause you're too lazy/stupid to do it!" Bargh!


Ugh, I hate this this. I'm the IT manager for my company which in most peoples' eyes equals "knows everything about anything that plugs into the wall or uses electricity." What's even worse though is that we have a lot of staff here who have no problem using facebook/myspace, streaming music from Pandora, or playing games online, but when it comes to using computer software to actually do their fucking jobs they feign ignorance and act all intimidated by the scary computer. And because I work in an industry that's been very resistant integrating computers into workflows these people get away with it, and I have to field calls from angry supervisors complaining that some computer or another isn't working. No, there's nothing wrong with the computer, your employee is simply a lazy sack of shit that doesn't want to do their work. mad.gif
