Anyone else find this intensely irritating? This is a place of work - not a creche!
just posting to say I appreciated the simpsons reference
It hurts no-one.
They'd soon kick up a fuss if I brought my cats in.
I'll give you that.
get it right you flange
What I don't like is being later than 3rd or 4th to be presented with the child and expected to offer some sort of comment as recompense. There are at most four different things you can say about a baby and if they've all been taken then you're gonna struggle when it's your turn to contribute
"this baby is very long" when it was held under its armpits and it's legs were dangling down
i know what t-800 is, but i do not understand that
Not some two bit Punch and Judy show down on the seafront at Margate
That's you - not the babies in your office
and is best friends with the new mum. Good luck with the job search!
if it's cute and giggly - great, all for it. second only to dog in the office
if it's greeting - no. get it away.

It was like 85% women so at anyone point 20% of the workforce was on maternity leave it became increasingly difficult to care about the volumes of babies being brought in
"Yep, that's a baby alright. Anyway, got to go eat crisps now"
And she'd dressed it in our brand colours and I wept in joy
why are you visiting your office?
check back in for a couple of 'return to work preparation' things when you're on maternity leave.
to interact with EASILY the most interesting human which is going to be in my office that day? Yes please!
...to say in passing "What are their Microsoft Office skills like? Could do with a hand on the second floor!".
Then give a shit-eating grin and wander off.
...'The graduates look younger than ever these days!!!'
Kill me now, etc.
you should keep your personal and professional life separate as far as possible.
get a grip
he was funnier before
I gave her a sticker, she loved me after that
But I work on the 4th floor of a building with no lift so I understand if they couldn't be arsed to drag a load of baby apparatus up 4 flights of stairs.
that still have forcep marks and conical heads. You can put them upside down and spin them like tops
