Exclamation Peeves!

Threads about what makes us angry are always so amusing, and help us vent out stress!

Feel free to share!

-

My current assistant has been helpful, but over time he has began to nag. He attempts to call the shots pretty often now that are highly unnecessary and even go against my authority. This person is the most SMUG person you will ever encounter, for things he is incorrect about too.

We stay in constant communication via messenger. I am getting constant 'dings' with him saying things like;

RED TEXT = what I wish I could say.

Assistant
not sure if its safe to sleep
might just be freezing rain
tommrow which means
we dont need to do ****
sunday scares me
... Nothing worth complaining about, forecast calls for rain big deal.

Assistant
we need to go out soon
No we don't. It didn't even start snowing.

Assistant
stopped snowing
about 1 cm on the ground
still a chance 10 cm though
Congratulations Einstein.

Assistant
looks like it might miss us
majourity of the storm
< watching the weather network
Why don't you spend more time doing something other than updating me with useless/irrelevant information?

Assistant
just north of us off island
theyre expecting 15-30 cm o.o
That's not us, and we are not getting anything more than 3cm with a mix of rain.

Assistant
what time you wanna hit the road?
later tonight?
For the love of god. Shut the hell up.

Assistant
supposed to turn to freezing rain at 10pm
then just rain from then
We don't shovel rain.

Assistant
hello?
whats the plan capitain?
Seriously... let if f'ing snow for 5 minutes first you annoying btard!

ME
probably later on tonight we will go out, ortmrw morning


Assistant
tommrow morning
any idea on a time frame?
?
Let me just use my crystal ball....

ME
11pm maybe if the snow stops.




I swear, he has nothing better to do than nag me. He's constantly trying to one up my authority;

Me: We will leave once it stops snowing or reaches past 5cm.
Him: Uh.. Yeah I don't think that's a good idea, we should leave now.

NO SNOW TO SHOVEL YOU MORON!

This is retarded. Now that the snow had stopped, I figure it's a good time to go out.

What happens? My guy is ignoring me.

What a baby!!!! He expects me to sit around and respond to all his useless messages? Just because I don't, he thinks it's fair to ignore me when it's time for work? Seriously?

This punk I swear... It's time to grow up kiddo!!!


Anyway, I just farted and I need to leave the house lololol.

I had to read this two or three times before it hit me.

Scott,

All of these things should be put together in your employee handbook and I'd love to see it when it's done LOL

my biggest peeve would be a universial one for all the seasons regardless of what your doing that for some reason strikes a nerve is:

the worker: what are we doing today?

me: ugh, well, i don't know, i was thinking maybe we would go cut some grass being that is what we do for a living.

the worker: really, i figured that out. i mean where are we going?

me: gee, now that you ask it like that, let me think about it a minute............................................ .................................................. ............. let's see, what day is today?

the worker: it's tuesday.

me: that's intresting, let me see here, what did we do last tuesday?

the worker: let me think.............. the mac-cali building was one......

me : thats right, what else?.

the worker: we also did the kings village and fox hills and i think that was it.

me: thats exactly right, good job. what did we do the tuesday before?

the worker: let me think......................... i think we did the same thing?

me: thats right again, and what do we do every stinking tuesday for the last two years you have worked for me?

the worker: oh, i get it you just being a jack a z z.

me: no, you don't get it. because every day you come in and ask me what we are doing today and without fail we do the same thing every day of every week in the same order just like clock work for the last two years you been here.
if you want to make morning small talk, that's cool but tell me about something funny you seen on tv last night or today the sun is so bright your walking on sunshine. you can even tell me about the big dump you took in the toilet this morning, but please stop asking me questions to things you allready know the answer to because it is starting to make me wonder how you can even remember to breathe.
