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.

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.

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 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.

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. 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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
