10 More Things You’d Love to Say at Work … But Still Can’t

The list I posted yesterday was so popular, I thought I’d post a few more items from the original one. So by popular demand, here they are:

  1. Any connection between your reality and mine is purely coincidental.
  2. I’m not being rude. You’re just insignificant.
  3. Do I look like a “people person”?
  4. This isn’t an office. It’s Hell with fluorescent lighting.
  5. If I throw a stick, will you leave?
  6. Whatever kind of look you were going for, you missed.
  7. I’m trying to imagine you with a personality.
  8. Too many freaks, not enough circuses.
  9. Nice cologne. Must you marinate in it?
  10. Chaos, panic, and disorder—my work here is done.
So what else would you like to say at work, if only you could? You can leave a comment by clicking here.

    In the 23 years that I spent working in offices–often for (if you’ll excuse the expression) jerks–what I most often wanted to say was, “I quit!”

    Then I taught at our community college for 6 years, in which time I thoroughly burned out. One semester, I had a young woman (mid-20′s, going on two years old). She was the most disruptive student I ever had, and I really had to struggle not to say what I really wanted to say. Then I heard of an instructor at a different campus who actually said the same thing to one of her students: “Just sit down and shut up, you stupid little *****!”

    That turned out to be the instructor’s last day of teaching.
