ITT: Workplace annoyances.
I'll get the ball rolling - having to bring in pastries on your birthday. I know it's cheaper if people bring their own in on their birthday instead of chipping in every time someone in the office has a birthday, but it's still fucking annoying having to fork out on your birthday.

What do you lads do during your lunch breaks? I work in a small business park around 20 minutes away from the nearest shops and the company I work for is overzealous with the number of websites they block; even the likes of the BBC is unavailable. I can't spend the full hour just dicking around on my phone, it's going to drive me mental.

I browse on my phone while eating and trying to shut off thoughts about suicide and arson.

Not really a lunch break but I use my half hour to go for a walk and lay around in a nearby church, usually around 7ish. Or, behind that church/off the public footpath, someone's made a swing using some old cable, so I have a good swing.

Listen to a podcast and go for a little walk. Pretend you're a smoker and stand outside pondering the universe. Play a game of chess on your phone. Do a crossword. Meditate. Knit. Sneak off to the fourth floor bogs and have a wank.

Isn't there even a shitty burger van on the business park you can mosey over to?

Get outside for a walk, even if it's just a five minute walk to go to a sandwich shop. If you stay indoors at your desk all day you'll go mad.

You'd be living dangerously in my office. That floor is where HR live, and naturally they've bagged themselves the section nearest the doors.

Read a book, I have to sit away from the plebs though and even then I can hear their conversations about last night's Eastenders or a rant about how some public service has failed them in the last 20 years from the canteen
I sit in what could be called the reception and it's near the doors to go back into the workspace so I always some mouthbreather asking how I can read a book, what it's about (Currently on the 10th book of the HH series, no easy way to explain the story) or how I look intelligent whenever they go back in.
I get through quite a few books considering I only have 30 minutes a day. Used to just browse Imgur on my phone but no WiFi mean't I'd eat up my data fast.

I can't recall the Horrible Histories books having a plot.

I bet that's all you wanted. Someone to ask that so you could finally have a conversation with another human being, albeit on an impersonal anonymous board.
Don't kill yourself.

What's wrong with some lad reading Horus Heresy books? It's not exactly Tolstoy, but it's not that bad, is it? Or did you for the Games Workshop at one point?
|>>|| No. 11293
Nobody said there was anything wrong with reading Horus Heresy books. I think you might be projecting.

I have to sit here and just watch my computer install updates. The first time I tried to let it happen unattended, I came back from the loo to find it just sitting at the FDE screen asking for credentials. The second time, I waited for the reboot, entered my credentials and went to grab a drink. I came back to find my desktop logged in and unlocked.

Brash women. I suppose it should be expected, working near Leeds, but fat Northern women, with their manly accents and talking brazenly about things like how they shat themselves a few years back.

I hate it when you get barracked for allegedly not sending something to a supervisor via email, perhaps CCing relevant staff, even though you sent it some time ago and they, and a CC recipient, specifically thanked you in a reply for sending it to them. This is further compounded when a CC recipient also denies that you actually did send something at all.
|>>|| No. 11318
CC yourself too then when they complain, send them a copy of the email you received with the headers.

I'm sure they can figure out how to change "aren't you" to "isn't he" as applicable.

I think the issue is the blatant lying/arse-covering, not the lack of evidence.
|>>|| No. 11324
No. The issue is OP is inept and just took it like a bitch instead of mass-emailing everyone the replies he got as a "reminder - FYI - here are your replies, I hope these jog your memories :)"
But no, he took 9 inches, and came running here to complain.
Fucking scum. He fully deserves it. Now, I hope they make jokes and tease him about how he keeps saying "but really mate, you did send me a reply, I just can't find it."
|>>|| No. 11325
Yes, people still keeping up their attitude with me, even though I showed them proof of receipt.
|>>|| No. 11326
I think the problem is that you're feeling cowed by them instead of smug and self-satisfied that they're being idiots denying the reality in front of them. >>11324 is being a twat but he's not totally wrong. Those people are obviously morons, you don't have to feel hurt by their stupid behaviour.

It is too cunting hot.
It is too cunting hot to sit in a poorly ventilated office in a shirt and trousers.
It is too cunting hot to sit next to someone with b.o. issues.
It is too cunting hot at the end of the working day to go back to your car and melt because there's absolutely no shade in car park.

I have actual good working aircon in my kitchen. It's fucking amazing. We had to close the vents at 8pm because we were getting a bit chilly.
All that dry air fucks your nose up though.

Why hasn't the fast food industry workforce been replaced by robots, yet?
|>>|| No. 11374
Because people-hours are very cheap. This is what Foxconn et al discovered - far cheaper to use people and simple tooling &jigs than to build, maintain, tear down, reprogram robotic assembly line as products change.
Then the people started to become scarce (expensive) as everyone did this and Foxconn started to talk about buying loads of robots, while setting up factories in cheaper countries. Then all the talk of robots went very quiet.
|>>|| No. 11375
That said, I do expect to start seeing more automation in fast food kitchens. I suspect there'll be a lot of grumbling, though, and possibly unrest / boycotts.
|>>|| No. 11376
You underestimate the amount of filth that accumulates around a fast food kitchen too, you'd still need a reasonable crew to maintain it all.
Albeit a much smaller crew. It's perfect work for automation really because it's boring, tedious, unskilled, repetitive manual work.

People who slice apples with knives at their desks.

>People who slice apples with knives at their desks.
It really depends on the type of knife they're using.
For example: Someone slicing an apple at their desk with a small paring knife is reasonable enough. Slicing it with a nice opinel folding knife marks you as a fine chap of distinction. If someone was sat at their desk slicing an apple with a bread knife, I would be handing in my notice and getting a hundred miles away from them as soon as I could.
|>>|| No. 11395
I haven't seen the knife, but it makes an awful jarring noise when it's slicing through. Also, eating apples in this manner is completely wrong.
