Chainers saidIf you lack the discipline to tune someone out and want a gun to silence them...get more disclipline.
Wow. Uh, Ok.
Chainers, what you are saying is that I am expected to endure a coworker who spends 6 out of 8 hours ever day talking about his 4 kids, the video games he plays when his 4 kids give him time, the Mormon church, his wife, his Vasectomy, his kids, his new house, his new neighborhood, how that DEGREED ENGINEER keeps telling him how to do his job, how he hates his job, how his Mormon religion doesn't allow him to have caffein but he *really* loves drinking Mountain Dew at work, how he hasn't been "getting it" from his wife because she takes care of their 6 month old twin daughters most of the time and is exhausted and not losing the weight she gained during the pregnancy, how he hates doing the work he is supposed to be doing and not getting enough of the fun work because I "won't help him out" because I have my own thankless and boring shit to do while he's expecting me to worship him.
Basically, my employer coddles this freak to support his family.
People who have worked in a cubicle farm don't make your statement.
