Okay, I work in an office. I hear the most mundane nonsense ever....daily. There is one person in particular that spouts nothing but verbal diarrhoea. So I'm setting up this thread for conversations you have either over heard, or had the mistfortune of partaking in.

(I have a blog about my work life...linked in my profile...but I use that for my more vitriolic assessments).

It's lunch time. C has just cooked a baked potato and is sitting at her desk eating it...

Gosh, you know, it's strange the way this potato has cooked. It's hotter in different places, you know? That last piece I had was boiling compared to the piece before it.

Thanks. I will now sleep better this evening knowing that your baked potato didn't cook evenly.

She was also discussing the way you cook them. She has "always wrapped them in kitchen paper before putting them in the microwave" but she was informed by KM and T that you didn't need to do that. Gosh, Unbelieveable, you know. I wouldn't have thought that would have worked.

This happened yesterday: -

T asked if I'd seen the movie "Due Date". I said no. K then said that she'd seen it...so they started discussing it. After about 3 minutes of them chatting C interupted mid sentence..."That's the one with the dog isn't it?"

Now I haven't seen the movie, so I couldn't comment on that. I quickly received an email from T mentioning that he forgot there was a dog in it...that's how involved the dog is with the story line. It turns out that she did a Google search, found the movie poster (which has a dog in it) and made a connection that it must be "the one with the dog". Good work Columbo.

That's not the first time she's Googled something we've been talking about so that she could try and feel involved. T and I have devised a plan based around this. We're going to mention Lemon Party or Blue Waffle. Let's see if she'd keep at it after that.

I sit next to 'A' at work and we have been having a feud all year on who's item of stationery makes the weirdest noise.
This is something that will go on for months to come yet.
He's convinced his hole-punch wins, but my staple remover is pretty freaky.

I've been trying to rally support from the office for the staple remover but so far, it's been to no avail.
Another exciting day in the office............

We always end up talking about food, we could talk about anything as far away from food as possible and we always end up getting back onto it, we have some people who are mad about cooking in our office, fair play to them though.

One of the girls here is engaged to a chef. One is fat. So that's a common theme here too.

Generally though the conversation is disjointed and doesn't really flow naturally. It will jump from one nonsensical conversation to another.

There are 16 of us in our section, and 6 of us are in the coffee round.
There was a new starter about 2 months ago who sits on the other side of me.
Since he started we have included him in the coffee round, but he hasn’t made us one yet.

So for the past couple of weeks ive been dropping hints about him making the coffee's and getting his round in.

Success!
He's declared its his round and just made the coffee's!!

But only mine and his. laughing

If you could see the look on the girls faces, they aint impressed.

There is 4 of us.

My boss and 2 schedulers. It's pretty good banter.

When i joined, everyone made their own tea, however, i soon changed that and now only make 1 cup a day instead of 4! Bonus.

I can see this thread becoming my new haven for ranting.

I think I'd rather staple her head to the white board. That could be amusing.

I could do with building a fort. We've got a fair few offices in our building that weren't being used, so if I ever got bored or fed up I'd go into one of them and just chill out for 10/15 minutes but we're so busy just now that they're all occupied.

Got really lucky today because I thought one of them was free and just as I was about to open the door some dude came out!

"Uh.....is Peter in there?"

"No"

"Alright! Thanks!"

Doh

I've actually asked my boss if he'll let me move to the empty offices downstairs.

He's reluctant to break the team up. He doesn't seem to realise that the team is breaking by having us sitting all together (as is my fragile grasp of sanity).

So she's annoying me already.

She's just said, out of nowhere, "Oh I don't want to tell you all what I ate last night"

Silence. No one in the office asked her or even acknowledged her. I was actually sitting thing "Then don't..."

She carried on though. "J? Fish & Chips"

So she actually prompted someone to get their attention to tell them what she didn't want to tell us. Moron.

This will be a long day...

Screw that.

Go up to her and tell her you wanna show her something, then blade and bleed all over her and her desk. Then grab her jacket and launch it to the floor and elbow drop the shizzle out of it. Get up and Woo uncontrollably before delivering knife-edge chops to the water cooler. Do the Flair strut and then sit back at your desk quietly.

I really created this thread to find out if I'm over reacting or if she is actually as annoying as I think.

Remember I'm not putting every statement she puts up either. I'm just picking some of the classics...

So is it just me? or am I justified in wanting to strangle her with a phone cable?
