    One of my coworkers' laugh is the most irritating thing I've heard in my entire life, and she laughs at everything. Someone could say, "It's going to be a long day." and it'd be met with (attempted internet onomatopoeia) "Heehaha, heaaaa!" If it sounded slightly more angry, it could very easily be a battle cry.

    Oh, man, I relate to that.
    I worked in an office next to a guy who would titter like a girl after everything he said, things that weren't funny, things other people said that weren't funny.
    He'd say "Well, here goes another day. Tee-hee-hee-hee-hee."
    A few years of that and I was ready to kill.
    The guy was an attention whore and couldn't stand me because sometimes people would talk to *me* instead of *him*. When I had to ask him a question, I could see his hands shaking.
    Everyone else knew they had to suck up to him or there would be trouble. I've never had that insight!

    Ugh. That honestly sounds a great deal worse than my situation.. I don't envy you for having to endure that for years. I cannot imagine a worse hell.
    Why did they think that they had to suck up to him though? Was he a superior, or potentially violent?

    Raging customers and just retail in general. It's funny how people can act like spoiled children when they step foot in a more popular retail chain.

    Nothing pisses me off ... it is just a job that I'm paid to do. Sometimes I find things frustrating, but those times usually revolve around the ignorance of people and I just laugh them off, because seriously, when people say and do stupid things, you shouldn't allow their ignorance to make you feel bad, so it much better to laugh a them. icon_lol.gif

    "Why did they think that they had to suck up to him though? Was he noisesrior, or potentially violent?"

    He was middle management in a programming dept and very smart. I was a regular computer programmer.
    He could fix any problem for you if he liked you.
    My big problem at work is that although I am civil to everyone, I cannot suck up to someone I dislike.
    This guy not only refused to help me but also gave me wrong answers and subtlely screwed up my projects.
    After eight years of the big boss trying to make him work with me, he laid me off and made the guy do my work also.
    What else could he do? The guy was much more valuable to the company then I was. (besides being an inept boss)

    The tittering all day made me irritable. I'm sensitive to annoying noises and the secretary (spit) snapping gum all day didn't help.

    Unfortunately, this is nothing compared to my present job that I will write on layer. This boss *is* violent and even over-turned the conference room table during a recent meeting.

    Basically, superiors that come up with objectives (goals) and procedures WITHOUT getting input from the workers. So these goals and policies are so not rooted in reality they are doomed to failure - and - ready for it - WE suffer the consequences. And please don't get me started on compensation!

    Just don't get me started. Too much to list. Glad to hear that some people like everything about their job.

    I agree with being treated like shit by self-entitled customers, but the thing that grates me the most is you have to kiss your boss' ass. In fact, I hate that about most jobs. The company basically owns you when you're employed by them. They stick their heads in your business disapproving of you partying even when they did the same when they were our age. They're trying to control our lives. While it may be illegal to fire gay workers here, they look for loopholes so if they find a gay worker they can come up with a bullshit excuse to fire them. Another thing I don't like about companies today(which is esp the case in my field) is that alot of these companies drug-test, both at employment and at a random period. They're basically telling us how to live our lives and how we need to be. Yeah, I smoke some weed(which isn't that bad for you), and have done some other stuff. I don't need a big corporation telling me how to live my life. Unfortunately, I'll prob be sucking up to them for at least several years when I do look for a job after graduation.
