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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In the bogs at work is two urinals and a cubicle. I went in today and my boss was at one of the urinals, he glanced around and saw me entering so I couldn't be a coward and slink off to the cubicle. I had to use the urinal next to me. He starts talking and I try to piss. Nothing. I strain and I worry if I try any harder I'll either shit myself, turn purple or my brain will try and exit out of my ears. He's pissing and talking for an inordinate length of time and it's clear there is no sound of piss hitting ceramic coming from the urinal in front of me. I'm just standing there like an idiot, straining and failing to piss whilst also trying to keep the conversation going. Eventually he leaves and the piss bursts out like a pressure hose. Two hours later and I've got ball ache, I'm sure they're related.

I don't get how people can commute on the train. I had to go to Leeds for a seminar today and the train was heaving and I was stood near a man that absolutely stank; like a mixture of Quavers, wet clothes that have been left in the washing machine too long and how my Henry hoover smells if I'm using it when the bag's almost full.

Aside from the price I've found you can quickly get used to train journeys. Even if you end up standing in the aisle you can still zone out by looking out the window for an hour as you try to avoid thinking about every embarrassing mistake you've ever made.

The biggest gripe for me is when some pisshead is sitting in one of the 4 seater places drinking tins so everyone else has to politely ignore him as he mumbles to himself. How they can even afford to buy a ticket is beyond me, illuminate conspiracy perhaps.

I only ever hear horror stories from mates who use the train on the regular, but I've only seen one annoying twat in months and had the occasional delay, and there's almost always a seat, unless you're a turkey and won't ask some berk to shift his laptop bag from the aisle seat.

They can't. They know that the guard will catch the aroma from six rows away and leave them well alone. They also know they can piss it up a bit and the gateline staff will probably just let them through.

It works like any other public service where the only time you comment on it is when things go wrong which then gets blown out of all proportion as we all love a good moan.

I've personally never had any major dramas and once you learn the network you can work around the rare delays that occur. Even Birmingham New Street can be quickly navigated so long as the stress of the place doesn't make you flip out and start eating the face off the next person to blunder into your way.

Some autist/silly cunt has mixed all the earl grey that a few of us have been picking at sporadically in with the regular teabags because "all tea's the same, innit".
Just seems a bit of a waste throwing out 100 or so bags because of this unwanted tea lottery, where even some of the normal bags have a faint taste of EG.
A more drastic version would be someone mixing diesel and petrol, because it's all the same, innit.

I'm glad I went out at the weekend to Marks and Sparks and bought some more short sleeved linen shirts. They are even allowing smart shorts n the office, so I bought some chino shorts as well.
