People are standing in and around a co-worker's office talking to said co-worker. Someone walks in, looks that direction, and asks me if the co-worker is in.

He didn't even bother noticing my withering stare, he just walked down to talk to them.

Man, I practice these stares for just such occasions! The least he could have done is wither a little bit!

I'm probably going to sound like a massive dick for bringing this one up, but here we go. There's a Lass in the office and she has epilepsy - and the reason I know this is cause it comes up in every conversation.
"Sorry, can you explain that again. My brain is a bit fuzzy cause of my epilepsy medication at the moment"
"Sorry if I'm a bit slow today - I guess that must be because of my epilepsy"
"I have to take off early to see my mum and then visit the doctor about my epilepsy"

The list goes on, and it get's tiresome quick. Doesn't help that she's awful at her job

you are allowed to at our place but you are not allowed to send out an email letting people know. so they either set it up in the lunch/break rooms or right outside their cubicle

I work for a school district. I have no chance to avoid this. I already spent $35 and the kiddies have only been back a week.
