    So at our office holiday lunch party we were each allotted $55 that we could spend on our meal/beverages and we were just casually talking about if we all liked the restaurant that we went to this last December.

    Me: "I remember enjoying it, but I don't remember what I ate."
    Office mate: "I don't think you ate anything."
    Other office mate: "No, she ate some bread."
    Other other office mate: "She didn't want to, though. Said it didn't go with the gin."

    I got drunk with my roommate last night and since he is also kind of my boss he gave me the ok to be late and hungover today. This morning he stopped at the store and bought milk so he could make us iced coffee with the espresso maker we have in the office. This is the best job ever.

    My new company paid me for all of last week even though I didn't start work until Wednesday. Do I bring that up or just buy myself something pretty?

    Bring it up before spending it, especially if it's a new job. It always irked me when employees wouldn't mention an error in overpayment, and then they would get mad whenever I told them that I would deduct it from their next pay.

    that's the first thing Mouth2 brought up at lunch. Also gave him Mouth1's contact info, as they are both in the same medical consulting field. Predict that, if they meet, they'll either end up killing each other or fall in love.

    The MIA slacker I fired left the country with $8K worth of our computer equipment. This guy is a real piece of work.

    Shit, that's all over AP, you don't need to hear it from your co-worker. Unfortunate, because your stock is also down roughly 22% today.

    I got the email: CWA executive board (my union) authorized us to go on strike. The CWA president just has to set a strike date. Holy cow, it's really happening again. First time since I got my job back in '98.

    People who "talk" to themselves while thinking/working/reading emails PISS ME THE FUCK OFF. My office manager in the adjacent office does this constantly. Sometimes, just to be a dick, I'll say "I'm sorry, what was that Linda?"

    I asked someone for two specific ppt slides that I can include in a presentation.

    She sent me a two page PDF file (that cannot be inserted into powerpoint), two lengthy and very verbose Word Documents that resemble nothing like PPT slides, and two PPT slides that resemble nothing relevant to my request. Her email describes 3 things that are attached, none of which matches the file names in the email.

    There are two people I work with regularly who more often than not show up 1-3 hours late for every single appointment that they schedule with me. Or they "reschedule" events for other days without saying anything. Then they make a fit when they show up and I have another previously scheduled appointment with someone else that had clearly been marked on the calendar.
