How stupid are people?!?
Posted earlier today in my personal LJ, edited for language.

So I get carbon copied on this E-Mail at work on Wednesday where someone is looking for some information from one of my team members.

This team member is already working on something that is time critical and a response must be given by the end of the business day on Wednesday.

The team member has been committed to getting the information gathered for the time critical response and has been scheduled for time out of the office on Friday.

So I replied to the E-Mail on Wednesday and told the person who was looking for that other information (the less time critical information) that my team member wasn't going to be able to get them what they wanted until Monday.

I get a voicemail Wednesday afternoon from less-critical information guy saying that "that's ridiculous." Of course, he says this without knowing what I've got my team member working on.

So I call him when I get in this morning. Turns out moron has his extension in the office forwarded to his cellphone AND HE ANSWERS IT AT 7AM.

I so explain to him that his statement that he'd have to wait until Monday was ridiculous was rather presumptuous because he had no idea what my team member was working on. He started going on about how the information was to take 5 minutes to pull together, to which I explained that what my team member was working on was time critical and had to be done immediately.

Then he says that he's at home and I've called and woke him up.

Hello? Earth to Stupid Moron, if you don't start work until 9am, WHY ARE YOU ANSWERING?!?!

People are stupid.

Passive Aggressive Notes
http://passiveaggressivenotes.wordpress.com/

If you work in an office and have ever gotten those passive aggressive notes or emails from co-workers who take some things too seriously, you'll get a kick out of this website where people post notes left for them from co-workers, neighbours, roommates, you name it. Very funny read. Enjoy!

Welcome!
Hello, and welcome to i_work_in_hell! It's a new year, and a new comm to discuss the new hells of the year seemed appropriate somehow.

So come in, grab a crappy cup of joe, f-lock your posts so no one outside this group can read them, and put your feet up on the cheap 70s ottoman I rescued in our recent office move.

Vent. Unwind. Laugh. Cry. We're here for you.

Current Mood: complacent
