women can be beyond petty

a ticket was submitted

user A is sending emails and they are bolded.
i look at the email account and i dont see anything indicating emails are bolded and have the user send me an email and sure enough its a regular email.

i go to the supervisor who put in the request and i get a little more information. i ask is it to outside clients or coworkers, can you show me an example? supervisor tells me two employees (user B and user C) didnt even tell User A, didnt come to the supervisor but went straight to the supervisors director and complained that user A is doing this on purpose to annoy them.

i look at the supervisor in disbelief and literally say, you have got to be fucking kidding me? supervisor just puts their hands on the head and says and this is what i have to deal with.

so i go to user B and ask for an example and they are like, oh, whats wrong? i explain that a ticket was opened and that User A was sending bolded emails and was unaware of it. User B replies oh wow, who would complain about something like that?

i go to user C and explain the same thing and again, wow someone opened a ticket for this? cant you just tell user A not to bold it?

i explain she isnt doing it so i need to see whats going on

i get the problem fixed (she had a theme set that she didnt know that sent all forwards in bold)

so now im thinking about user B and C and they think they pulled a fast one. but what the fuck, you think i stopped at your desk, just two random people and ask you about the issue with user A? are you really the fucking stupid or think i am? like i wasnt told user B and C made the complaint?

god i hate a lot of my coworkers and im surprised i have lasted 7.5 years here so far

Seems petty, but employee A could have grounds to sue the company for its hostile work environment. Employees B and C are liabilities at this point.

Users B and C need to be fired. They’re troublemakers.

Dragon Con is a big deal in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend. One older co-worker keeps referring to it as Donkey Kong, not on purpose.

I went to it a couple of years back in the mid 90s.

That is a very good question, one that no one can answer for me. Nor can anyone tell me why - if we have 15 printers with scanning function - this is the only one that works.

i just got this email from a coworker

In the future, if you sit at my desk, please do not adjust my chair. It has been impossible to get it back into the correct position this morning. If it is uncomfortable to you, there is another chair available at another work station here that you can use.

Thank you.


to which i replied

Sorry for the trouble. I actually had a hard time adjusting it and didn’t think I actually changed anything. I gave up trying to get comfortable and finished my work.

There's a new guy across the hall from us who is blind. He does this thing where whenever you walk into a room he's in, he says hello. I'm sure he does it to help him orient himself and to get a sense of who is there; when you think about it, we take in so much info about our surroundings (especially in a business environment) visually that he's at a real disadvantage. Even though I don't work with him directly, I always say, "Hey, how's it going?" so he knows I'm friendly and not some threatening golem.

But.

But.

Here's the thing: he also does it when he's taking a shit. So if I walk into the men's room and he's in a stall, he will just say, "Hello!" That's a little weird to me.

Sorry, I just snorted at the idea of you changing your voice to some deep threatening golem voice the next time you enter the bathroom.

"Hello!"

"Hello."

"What did you think of the all-hands meeting today?"

This concerned me because what do you mean there's an all-hands meeting? I've been here since April and you're saying there's a meeting that takes place that everyone is supposed to be at and I've never been to a one of them? And no one in that time has thought, "Hey, where's Chris at? Maybe he doesn't know about this meeting." I guess not.

Oh and I found out about another meeting that, even though it's titled "Supply Chain Officer Meeting" the worker bees should listen to it as well. At least the other one is once a month so I've only missed seven of them but this one is every week.
