Not cool guys, not cool!
this has never happened to me. I'd throw a stapler at their face if they even tried.
this fella's tache was almost in the liquid. I have a corner desk so it only has one squatting zone which happens to be where I like to keep my water. Fuck.
but why squat down at someone's deskj. Oh i get it- he's coming down to your LEVEL. he's been on too many of those tree-hugging courses.
well you don't have to squat but you have to stand in that spot.
That old chestnut :)
Do you work in a cave?
there is my desk and a couple of chair for people who come in to speak to me. the chairs are about as far away from my desk as they can be without actually touching the wall. they are rally heavy, so nobody would try to move them closer. so people are a good four metres or so away when they come for a consult. Any closer and I'd start grabbing the stapler. fortunately i have a loud voice.
what can I say, people like to squat near me.
The thread we've all been waiting for.
office squatting/liquid breathing office stories. No need for them to be linked.
actually no leave it.
before work, now nobody comes over to my desk, because i was sacked.
hope you find a way to stop it.
Hot coffee in the same place, turn and accidental spill on the shirt/crotch of worse offending squatter?
grab his hair and use his face like a cloth to mop it up. See how he likes that.
People using your mug.
Or even worse, people putting recyclables into your (non-recycling) bin? Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhhh!
there is NO WAY I am taking my Boo mug into work, only for some clumsy workshy fop to smash it to pieces (especially if i had him dressed in his fave outfit- cowboy, yeehah.)
for safety reasons. I thought about bringing in my 90s turtles mug but it is too much of a risk.
One is the aforementioned BOO mug. I am so attached to it I batrely even use it at home. I just gaze at it and occasioanlly change his stick-on outfit using the stickers that came with it (yes I am 37).
one is a Padle Steamer Waverley mug and it is seriously close ot my heart.
then tere are a pair that go together which CHintzy got me for christmas in 2010 (mate, not only have I not smashed one yet, but they aren;t even chipped!!)
I'm a bit precious about my mugs, so the standard plain white ones with the firm logo that everyone shares are fine for me to go with at work.
although mine did need to be washed and he did it for me. i had a spare mug and ended up donating it to him (i won the one he'd already used in a quiz, never letting that one go)
Colleagues who carry the mugs to the kitchen with their fingers inside. Like a barman carrying around some empties.
colleagues that make a round of teas and coffees using mugs that have already been drunk out of.... and using the same teaspoon to stir/add sugar/fish out teabags mug from every with total abandon.
Germ soup, FFS
