People who bring in odorous know who you are

By Why Me Worry? ·
Even though this thread is not technology related, I would like to know the weirdest and stinkiest things that people you work with have brought in to work and ended up stinking up the office with. On my floor, there is one woman who eats the same damned thing every day. I don't know what it is but it smells like month old fish in curry sauce. The really worst part about it is when she heats it up in the microwave and the smell spreads throughout the entire floor, making everyone sick and nausious. I once had to go outside because my eyes starting burning, I started to feel sick to my stomach, and came close to vomiting all over my cubicle. I know HR has policies about certain things, but why don't they have policies on bringing fish and other stinky foods to the office? god forbid we have a client or vendor come in and the place smells like a fish market or some Indian restaurant with the smell of curry permeating the air..lord help us!

So where was OZ?

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to BRING OUT THE BEANO!

I don't think he actually went to the track a day early just to get the "Good Oil" on who was going to win.

So did he just sleep in or is he responsible for Jessie not being here this weekend? :)

Took off on Thursday

by Oz_Media In reply to BRING OUT THE BEANO!

Went to the Canadian Motocross Assn. meet in Chilliwack on the mainland. Got a call from a friend, loaded up the bikes Thursday (after quickly rescheduling everything for next week) took off to camp, drink any beer (even had a few Bushman's)and try killing myself again.

OZ that sounds as believable

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to BRING OUT THE BEANO!

As my recent trip to Melbourne. I drove close behind a semi as there was so much fog that you couldn't see anything beyond a faint glow from the headlights on high beam so instead of parking at the side of the road I tucked in behind a semi doing about 140 KPH and just followed the guy.

Of course because of the poor visibility I missed the turnoff and ended up in Newcastle when I stopped and asked just where I was I was told Toronto. I replied well I know the weather has been bad but I didn't see the need to have the wipers on that hard to actually leave AU and end up in Canada.

Anyway as you seem to have done a really poor job of killing yourself did you enjoy it?

Pretty sure I cracked a rib again

by Oz_Media In reply to BRING OUT THE BEANO!

Hurts like a ***** but you never know, either cracked, bruised or something but that's par for the course.

All in all an absolute riot and a half!

While I was there, a friend at my old studio picked up our all area access passes for an upcoming show in the states. So that's really cool for one weekend.

Well I hope you cracked the rib!

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to BRING OUT THE BEANO!

As that is a lot less painful than bruising several.

Just remember don't laugh it hurts too much.

Many Years ago I used to Race a Classic Ducati in the Classic Meetings and the boss didn't like this at all and insisted that I stop it so I handed in my resignation which he refused to accept. Well about a month latter he asked me could the company sponsor the meet so I put him in contact with the organizers and sure enough they shelled out quite a bit of money to sponsor the meetings and always had a presence at each and every race meeting. Of course I didn't work this out at first but just prior to a meet happening an emergency would arise and I would have to fly around the place to fix things. Seems that by sponsoring the meetings they got prior knowledge when they where on and arranged for me to be away when they happened.

Of course I suppose I shouldn't have slid off the end of the main straight well in excess of 130 MPH when they where there to watch. No I didn't drop the bike I just had to avoid some guy who didn't know how to ride. Who has ever heard of breaking a bike on the inside of the circuit and then pulling to the outside to stop particularly when you know you have someone right behind you.

I'm told it did look spectacular but I got my tires dirty and it took about half a lap to clean them up so I was really slow for that time.

Of course the real problems where not at the actual Race Meetings but at the Private Practice where you could and did get hurt. I actually moved close to the local Race Track and never attended a single race meeting there but when I lived over 100 KMS away I was there at least once a month but 5 K away and I couldn't spare the time to go and have a play around.

I suppose that tells you something but I also changed jobs about the same time and the new job required me to have a suit case constantly packed in the back of the workshop so I didn't know for certain if I would be going home at night or be in a different city. But it was interesting work.

Think how bad things would be then?

I have found NOTHING affects me worse than buffalo meat. I was in the next room with the door closed and I made the family gag in the next room.

They won't let me eat buffalo anymore...

Next time he does it, start spraying lysol. He will get the hint. (or is he doing it on purpose and laughing about it?)

The proper way to handle it is to use the

Iysol and as you spray it hold a lit lighter just in front of the nozzle and after a massive burst of flame short out "There She Blows Again!" That will either get you into masses of trouble or shut up the person responsible but either way it looks spectacular.

Littering knows no bounds.

by deepsand In reply to I don't miss the smoke

Why single out smokers? Discarded food/beverage containers & wrappers are pandemic.

True, but...

by Montgomery Gator In reply to Littering knows no bounds ...

I see a lot more smokers throwing their cig butts on the ground, out car windows, etc. than I see people dropping food/beverage containers. Some smokers seem to think that the littering laws do not apply to cigarette butts.

ALL litterers are ignorant.

by deepsand In reply to True, but...

No one kind is any the more or less repugnant than the other.

The one practical difference would be those who throw lit cigarettes from their cars onto the combustible countryside, thereby startin brush & forest fires.
