I've developed a nervous twitch when a woman speaks behind me. Middle aged, tries to speak like a stunted child, put on a posh/common voice as she feels, goes mental about doing her (ridiculously easy) job, bitches and whines about our manager when he isnt around, sucks up to him when hes here. Im gonna spark her out before I leave
next time she does something out loud that really annoys you, just 'tut' audibly, she might be able to ignore it the first time, but if repeated she will start to notice
She has to notice. Its impossible she cant. Might start tutting and sighing aswell if she doesnt get the message
Is it that the baby talk stuff?
That's fine if you are talking to an actual baby, or perhaps a small dog or a cat, in normal everyday adultland usage, no. Folk who do that need EST, or just tasered, whichever is easier.
You can create your own one-shot taser by pulling the electrical cord from the bottom of any standard lamp, plugging it in somewhere and applying the loose ends to the nape of whoever is making noises like they're a 'special needs' pre-teen.
again in a poorly constructed way? Like that. Its so annoying. Would a homemade tazer incident end up on a reference to a future employer?
by fraying one of the computer cables a bit and having the conducting wires touching the frame of her desk.
than a tut (although tuts are more satisfying).
Next time she 'acts' objectionably (pick a particular behaviour, that is quite distinct) and make a particular noise that is slightly noticable (a buzzer or an alarm/electronic reminder) something that is noticable and try to do it immediately it happens. Be consistant about this, she will either become concious of it herself which might make her self concious enough to stop it, OR you might find that you can start to control her.
but make an EHHHHH-URRRRH sound like the wrong answer klaxon on that family quiz show les dennis used to present.
