This one guy at work, I swear I’m gonna beat his ass.
He keeps going on about how his time is being wasted in meetings, and basically any time that he’s not in his little office cocoon. I’m calling this guy out.
He either doesn’t actually do that much, and wants us all to think he’s so busy, or he just doesn’t want to be around us. Either way, this is work, buddy! It’s not some goddam romper room play-time, and it’s definitely not the place to get pissed if you can’t be completely alone 24/7!
You think the rest of us love three-hour meetings? Oh, yeah! We’re just whooping it over here, having a real goddam party! You think I don’t like being in my own office, not having to deal with everyone’s horseshit?!
No matter whether you like it or not, meetings are a part of work. And I’ll even go so far as to say —even though I’m not a huge fan myself —we actually do get a lot of stuff out of our weekly discussions: clarification on directives, ideas we may not have considered, and even new work to do, which keeps us all busy, and — oh, yeah! — keeps us all still working.
This jackass doesn’t realize that the things he hates so much about work are actually job security. I’ll get that SOB in a headlock next time I see him. I’ll break his goddam arm, if needs be!
Alright, now I’m getting heated. I’m just sick of this dick acting like his time is more important than the rest of ours. We all get the same amount of time, douche! So shut your goddam mouth about it!
Next time this guy gives me — or anyone — guff about bringing up the stuff they need to bring up, next time he rolls his eyes or sighs real loudly, I swear to God, even if it prolongs a meeting, I’ll slap him like a little bitch, right in front of everyone. I’ll teach him some respect, one way or another!
