In which one day I will climb over my cube wall and give you what for.

I can tolerate many things. Ignorance is not one of them.

There always seem to be at work, those people who talk too loudly about things they don't know anything about. People who talk about things one just SHOULDN'T talk about at work. Cube walls are not real walls no matter how hard you imagine the entrance is a door. They are NOT sound proof.

Things like:

"I was so drunk. You were pretty drunk too. 'K. Talk to you later mom." Oh yes, really. There was a subsequent conversation where they discussed drinking before going out and another about former addictions.

"Uh, I need to make a payment."

"Yeah, well you're a jealous bitch and now everyone working around me can hear me yelling at you."

Usually, I turn up my headphones and ignore them. Today was one of those in between times, where I needed to have them off. I should just tape them in my ears.

"So, is that one of those casual games, for...housewives?"

Seriously? What the hell is wrong with you? I am annoyed on so many levels. Annoyed as a woman, annoyed as a wife, annoyed as a gamer, annoyed as your freaking co-worker.

Today was not the day I climbed over the wall. His comments get more and more outlandish and day will come where I will argue with the Ignorant. Just not today.

I love this post. I read it, re-read it, and read it again, and I still laugh. I like the jealous bitch part, cause this guy has to be a complete nerd to start with, so just imagine what he's dating!!

But from subsequent conversations with the annoyed one, I found out that his problems go deeper than what a ready girlfriend, a dermatologist, and/or a tack hammer can fix.

It just made this post even funnier to know that. I will forever bookmark this one.

The jealous part was from a different co-worker. I've always had loud cube neighbors. When they moved us around we thought it would be quieter. No, instead we hear more insane conversations. So, do you think you can fire a gun in space? No, what do you think? Well I don't know how you could because there isn't any oxygen. OMG. SERIOUSLY.

I think it makes you laugh more because you can see me climbing over the cube wall all righteous indignation. Be careful. That thought might make you pee yourself.
