  • what drives you crazy on your job?

    I'm guessing that the majority of miceys here work with the public....well, here's your chance to vent...and warn some of us about things we can avoid when coming to your work....Me? I work in the hotel biz. Front desk actually, and it never ceases to amaze me the things people say or do. Like, calling down and having YOU look up phone numbers (are your fingers broken?)...or calling me and asking me how to work the tv....(press the button?)...what about you? What's your pet peeves in your line of work?

    I don't deal with the public very often, but when I do it's the not want to understand anyhting. Yes, i know it sucks, but pretending not to understand will not make it go away. Also, the people who overreact to the silliest things is always amusing...

      Not me, but DH. His paralegal is the absolute pits - she always claims she's too busy to file things, or look up things relevant to cases he's working on. Uhm, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that her job? She's always yakking away on the phone, and unprofessional to boot.

      And yet, his bosses won't fire her. We're trying to figure out if it's because his boss is a wuss, or if she's got something on him. Who knows.
      She did it!

        Having to deal with snow. I hate dealing with snow and having to work on that day. That makes me crazy and want to do anything to avoid the snow.

          Just think about babysitting 390 kids........yep, that's what I do!

          it's what they are like in their HEART!

            I put this in pet peeves already but it drives me batty when people come to work sick and cough, sneeze, you name it all over the air I breathe. At least shut the door to their office if they DO come in... i don't want to hear it all darn day.

              Clueless parents and kids. Even though you mail things and send things home....they STILL act as if they have no idea what is going on around here.

                I just got a new job, so I can't say anything about it yet, but man... At Blockbuster, I swear parents were getting dumber by the minute.

                  Right there with ya on that one! AND even when you place the info/flyer/to-be-signed and returned in the parents hands... they STILL act as if they have no idea what is going on...then get upset that "nobody told them."

                    HaHa how much time do you have
                    I don't work w/the public anymore nor do I ever have to deal w/our customers. I rarely deal w/the people who do... thankfully!!

                    But the main thing is having programs and tools that don't work! How can I do my job when the program I use to do it crashes, literally, 15 times a day? And 3 months later... it's better but unstable. 3 months later there are still tools that jut don't work. That have NEVER worked!! That's what drives me crazy.

                    Other than my boss sitting behind me so she can see my screen anytime she wants.
                    Good morning, son
                    In twenty years from now
                    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                    And I can tell you 'bout today
                    And how I picked you up and everything changed
                    It was pain
                    Sunny days and rain
                    I knew you'd feel the same things...

                      That sounds totally like this girl who used to work in my office. She was so annoying, my co-worker & I called her "The Gnat". She was always putting per personal business before work, constantly gave attitude (then tried saying it was the other way around) and took everything waaaaay too personally. She pissed off my co-worker & I so bad that on separate occasions we actually took her outside and had it out with her. Finally the bosses saw the light and fired her sorry azz.

                            Hah! Well - I'm glad your bosses finally got a clue! DH's paralegal gives him major attitude too. I just hope one day his bosses wake up! I'm pretty sure there's something shady going on but oh well. Until things get better - he's sending out resumes and looking for something.
                            She did it!
