    A disproportionate amount of my time at work is spent waiting for meetings to end so I can vulture in on the food I'd ordered for the meeting before it's left in the break room for the rest of the company to devour at will.

    One of my Directors just gave me completely opposite information than what he provided for me yesterday. Yet, I'm the person with the issue of interpreting what he tells me as "so black and white".

    God, I can't stand overly sensitive creatives. Learn how to take constructive criticism without taking it personally. I make the naive assumption that everyone at an organization operates with positive intent and in interest of the org's mission and in making the work better. I got talked to about "injecting more kindness" into my feedback of creative's work. Despite the fact that my feedback during the creative development process is always, quote, "specific, actionable, and very helpful".

    if you are bringing your own special roast of coffee from the magical deep jungle regions of tralalalaland and brew it in the common coffee room EXPECT OTHER PEOPLE TO WALK IN AND POUR THEMSELEVES A GOOD CUP. fucking assholes who brought it there just gave me a weird look and one of them said ENJOY with a bitter tone as I proceeded to help myself to what I thought was the regular type of coffee that's free in the office. It was pretty good though.

    A couple years ago I did have an occasion where I brought a sack lunch in and somebody drank my soda and then threw the rest of my lunch in the garbage can (what?). i went kind of ballistic and nobody ever touched my food again.

    Next time pour that shit out and make the regular work coffee. I'm all about keeping ones hands off other peoples food, but you make a private brew in the common pot and you can go fuck off with your attitude.

    I would have caused a scene as well, drinkey.

    No kidding- if you use the company brew machine for your special coffee grounds it's public domain. What assholes.

    A sample slide from the lecture I'll be attending tomorrow evening. So thoughtful of the professor to send these out in advance.

    My email sometimes autofills and I choose the wrong name when sending out an email. I'm used to double-checking now so it rarely happens, but there isn't someone else named Matt that she could have sent that to?

    Also, donuts AND cupcakes on the same day just need to stop. Damn office fatties (me included).

    Same. Friday = donut day.
    And then a couple Friday's ago, a consultant brought everyone a mini BUNDT CAKE. noms.

    Today is "monthly birthday pastry day".

    I, too, need to start running again.
