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!

I'm not offended

by amcol In reply to I have . . .

Not by you, anyway, nor am I angry. I appreciate your thoughts, expressed in an eloquent and reasonable fashion.

Read the poster's next response. More illumination on a deeply disturbed personality.

There are two indulgences I occasionally allow myself (other than Snickers bars)...poking holes in pomposity, and putting on close minded people. This guy just presented too big an opening, and I couldn't resist walking through it (which with this guy was no challenge).

Have a nice day.

And I'd tell you "F*CK YOU" in your face

by Why Me Worry? In reply to Thanks

Fire Me? OK..fine by me..but you better hope you have good firewalls because you may not have a functional network the next day

that's a little harsh, if you have to swear use the universal !@#$% characters (or don't swear at all) and don't threaten to hack through firewalls and damage networks, that's not good for anyone.

Just my 0.02 cents (please don't hack through my firewall and damage my network)

Network hacking

by Oz_Media In reply to FYI...

Now there's something professional one can be proud of in a techincal forum!

Firstly, the company would have him pinned and sued in seconds, a day after leaving, the network gets hacked, like to see you defend that one, and your lack of internet tracks would be irrelevant.

For someone in a kids game forum, that may be considered cool. In a forum where 99% of the peer can all wreak havoc and destroy someone's network, it's just childish and for a professional, a VERY stupid statement!

Well done.

**Uncle Rob, sorry I misposted below you, you KNOW this wasn't aimed at you though.

Sorry, fellas

by amcol In reply to Damn

Don't be too disappointed but as far as I'm concerned this battle of wits is over. I never fight an unarmed opponent.
