I want to include female co-workers who want to know every little detail about your marriage/relationship and then act like your SWMBO is their best friend (without ever having actually met her). I'm not even talking basic information like, "what's her name?", "what does she do for a living?"...more like:

Where did you meet? What was your first date?
Does her family like you?
How long did you date before you proposed? Really, why that long? How did you propose? Did you pick out the ring yourself? How did she react?
Does she have any tattoos? What are they? Does she care that you don't have any?
What TV shows does she watch? Does she listen to [band name]?
While talking to her on the phone: "Tell her I said 'hi'!"

I'm fine with talking about stuff other than work, but geez, I'll volunteer the history of my relationship if and when I feel like it.

if I was on a conference call, I'd crack one off real loud & ask right away in a serious tone, "Alright, who was that?"

My favorite? The boss who tried to get me to do work that I wasn't qualified for and hadn't been hired to do. And then she yelped at me for asking questions. I finally just walked off the job and haven't been back.

Most of that comment reminds me of my career in the Navy. Now I'm in the civilian sector and they do the same thing. I'm okay with that, I like what I do and always enjoy learning something new.
A good company and good bosses make the difference between hating a job and enjoying any challenge that comes along.

Yes you are correct!! Good shipmates. People you trust and they trust you. Gawd I do miss the Navy sometimes.

When I actually want to sit and do my 2 hours of work for the week, I have these headphones I wear and listen to music. Helps drown out the idiots around me. Anyway they are these big honkin' sony headphones, you know with the big foam earpads and nice bass. I look like an astronaut wearing them.

Anyway, why the hell are people tapping me on the shoulder to interrupt me and ask me a stupid question? Yeah... I wasn't busy...

Just send me an email!

We have a guy at work who drives a full size pickup. Quite a few people here do, actually, including myself. Everybody, except this one guy, knows how to park it within the confines of a single parking spot. I have never seen this guy take up less than 2. This is not an exaggeration. Every time. Today he parked directly in the middle of 2, with the back end hanging 1/4 into 2 other spots. What's the tactful way to say, "Dude, you park like an *******?"

Edit : He's also the type who has no need for a full size pickup. Myself, I do a lot of woodworking and routinely haul 12+ ft boards of hardwood, or multiple sheets of plywood. Other people here hunt, farm, etc. This guy is a 60 year old loafer.

Take photo of ****ty parking job.
Print photo, write something directly insulting.
Post your new sign on the door heading out of the office.

Try to make it funny so it doens't get ripped down. And don't let anyone see you!
