Rate your coworkers

Rate your coworkers. You know that person in the cubicle who sniffs and coughs constantly? Or the one who takes the last cup of coffee and doesn't make a new pot? What about that guy who never refills the copier with paper? Or the one who brings in her daughter's Girl Scout cookie order form and expects you to buy something? Or the one who takes your ideas and passes them off as his own? Don't get mad, rate 'em!

this is the first one I came across.

Anyway, this site seems like a really bad idea.

Since when are Girl Scout cookies a problem? Mmm, thin mints.

Wow. Talk about your recipes for disaster. "Safe and fun! " my ass.

I hate every single last one of my co-workers, and even I think this is a bad idea.

Why not set up the company MetaFilter? Who wants to get lambasted by strangers?

This is easy. You're all intolerable twats. Where's my cupcake?

Strangely, nobody's rated any coworkers at ratemycoworkers itself

Why are all of JoM's examples negative? Surely I'm not the only person in the world who likes at least some of my coworkers.

Tim always puts papers on my chair instead of my desk when I'm away.

At last, I have a way to make him pay.

Pay big.

thunderously bad idea

First they came for the professors . . .

Really, wasn't this inevitable?

Keysha, could you please stop groaning orgasmically as you stretch and arch your back, followed by "Oh damn, that felt good!".

And stop the humming of the church choir hymns. We know you're here; you don't need to call attention to yourself constantly.

And please stop the boring and nonsensical stories of how you are playing two or three men at any given time.

Also: If you're so smart, why do your cars always break down as soon as you buy them?

{I should make my complaint directly, sorry. It just kind of wrote itself.}

Yeah. This should really squelch the problems at work.

You'd think they'd have learned their lesson after the "Rate Your Fellow Postal Employee" debacle.

Worst coworker I ever had was at a temp job, and I didn't even make it through half a day of sitting next to her. She was this loud 300+ pound lady, and apparently after a loooong dry spell she had a new boyfriend. She just wanted EVERYONE to know... so as I sat in the cubicle next to her trying to concentrate on my work, she proceeded to call every single person she knew and tell them all, VERY loudly, about how she "didn't get NO sleep becuz he kepp on wannin' to get on UPPPP in dere!"

I tried to ignore it, really I did. But she just kept giving more and more and MORE details (including sound effects) and... well, my stomach started feeling kinda queasy. I ended up excusing myself to go to the restroom, walking to my car, and calling the temp agency to let them know that I was done for the day and would not be returning. ONLY time in my life I've ever walked out on a job. I'm just not that strong, though.

You know, you can just make stuff up. Doesn't seem fair.

For all the places I worked, some that I really hated, there is only one place about which I tell the story. That was a place where I temped, and when I refused their offer of an under-the-table direct hire, they told the agency I was no good. (Data Converters, Kansas City, MO).

I don't have stories of co-workers that I couldn't tolerate. The ones that did exist are in the far past, and usually cases of aggressive assholes that wanted to engage in playground antics. There was work I hated, and left. But mostly the co-workers weren't the issue. (oh, two places I left because of perceived ethnic favoritism towards Latinos, but shit happens).

Current situation: 3 co-workers, 1 bathroom. 1 coworker with IBS, and likes to tell us all about it after being in the bathroom for 30 mins at a time. shudder

I prefer that the next person who wants coffee make more. I have found that less coffee goes to waste.

Man. This site was not blocked by the corporate nannyfilter on Monday.

That has changed. I need to remember to look us up when I get home, I guess.
