Cube Farm Fun

One of my coworkers makes me want to stab myself in the head. She's a nice enough lady but she's slow like molasses in January. She's always asking for help but when I try to tell her what to do she must first (slooooowly) show me how she's been doing it before I can show her the proper way to do something. Sometimes she will do her demonstration, listen to me explain to her how it should be done (and I have to speak very loudly because she is hearing impaired) and then decide to continue searching on our helpdesk for another answer. Not to sound full of myself, but I've been working at this fucking place for almost 6 years. I've got a pretty good handle of how things should be done. If you want to take me off the phone (and that hurts my numbers for the month) or ask me a question while I'm on break (and that takes some of my sanity) then at least do what the hell I'm telling you to do! It might work!

I accidentally blew out 2 of her hearing aid batteries a few weeks ago. I was playing with my phone under my desk. You have to keep your cell phone away from your work phone because it will cause static on the line when you're talking to a customer. About 10 minutes before quitting time, I was downloading something on my phone and it was causing my phone to sound odd. My neighbor took her hearing aid out and said that the hearing aid in her right ear (the one that was closest to me) had been squealing all day (and that never happens to her) and that the battery had just died on her. She said she had to change her battery twice and that was a very strange thing to have happened. Oops. Now I hold my cell phone to my other side if I am using it under the desk.

I am laughing with you honey, I want to stab my co-workers many a day too!

Osbasso - I'm a real rebel!

Heather - I figure she probably has her hearing aid on some weird setting. She's one of those people where whatever ailment she has is always the absolute strangest and worst.

Patti_Cake - I actually caught myself rolling my eyes at her the other day. I just hate it when people ask for help but don't really want to use it.

The fact that she doesn't listen to your answer when she asks questions proves this is Karma.

Chickie said...

Sara Sue - Bah. Stupid Karma.

Man, I wish I knew someone with a hearing aid now so I could go fuck with them.

Chickie said...

Joey Polanski - It's a kind of poetic justice.

Mike - May I suggest the pharmacy section of your local Wal-Hell?

Are you sure that you didn't do it on purpose for not doing things your way after you "wasted" your time explaining things to her?

Chickie said...

Midwestern City Boy - I didn't do it on purpose but I will admit that I felt no guilt when it happened.
