    Would your attitude change towards them if said person was a Girl?

    The 2 I’m referring to are wimmins.

    It took me a while to work out what was bugging me, but now I think I’ve worked it out:

    The “Brilliant” bloke from the Fast Show is just like Brian Cox but speeded up a bit.

    Did Mr Crabby have salad for lunch, perhaps? 🙄

    And with those, you just know that they cry themselves to sleep, alone, every night. Filled with self-loathing after binging on chocolate and chardonnay, while watching Rom Coms

    Dammit, you’ve just described my Friday nights… Rumbled by binners 😀

    And in my experience, the aforementioned folk are often late 20’s, living at home, no rent or chores or responsibility-still- have an ITV2 related phone wallpaper and **** LOVE “the bants”.

    Often drive a fully paid for -by dad-Mini countryman. This includes the guys.

    This describes our entire sales support team, bar a few have them having made it into their thirties, a couple into middle age….

    Mercifully I work in a different part of the building, with 2 doors and a bridge inbetween

    Tis a medical condition innit, like depression, but the opposite, they need medication to bring em back down, street grade skag should do it.

    The last guy we had like that was also quite far up the OCD Spectrum.

    6 months of moving his pens to the wrong side of the desk or turning his stapler round though 180 degrees brought him back to a semblance of nomality/paranoia.

    You want to try being Mr cheery in an office full of dour Scots and a Yorkshire woman… 80

    dour Scots

    They’ll be even more dour in a few years when they realise Salmond was hiding the figures for a reason 😀

    But then the Yorkshire woman should cheer up cos all the jobs will have moved South!

    I suspect i’m one of the cheery ones. Its a survival mechanism for us geologists, if you can be cheerful spending 14 hrs on some cold wet godforsaken hillside looking at mud the office is easy…..

    I am literally weeping with laughter at this thread, which is a change from the usual miserable grimace on my pus.

    bearnecessities is a genius.

    Oh christ!! They’re even worse!!! Then you get women who describe themselves as ‘bubbly’!!

    I thought “bubbly” was code for “fat”

    There’s a woman like that in our office – thankfully, I don’t go there much as it’s miles away.
    I’m the new boy there so I get targeted for extra cheeriness.

    …….. and no, like almost everyone else in the office, Hollywood Bowl followed by Pizza Hut is not something I’m likely to put my name down for.

    When down at the office last and staying in a hotel, said cheery woman wouldn’t take no for an answer and came and got me. 😯

    While we’re on a workplace murdering spree, can we tackle the bottom feeders too? You know, the ‘I I **** hate this place’ brigade?

    Go and work somewhere else so I don’t have to listen to your shite.

    I got a verbal warning once as I was complained about for telling a “victim of employment” to “just leave then” every single time they said “I hate working here”.

    My offensive nature offended him A HIM!

    This was in retail.

    Well he’s surpassed himself this morning. Mr smiley, happy Surrey simpleton has just breezed in, and as part of his annoyingly upbeat morning greetings, asked my colleague, who has a broad scouse accent, to the total incredulity of all in the room, which part of Scotland she’s from?

    ****ing southerners!!!

    For god’s sake Binners, don’t even consider holidaying in Oz then. 99.9% of people here will quite happily engage in chatting with a total stranger in a cheerful manner whilst enquiring about one’s health and well being, it’s a total contrast to Manchester, must be weather related… 8)

    Nahhh, Come work here, I’ve been on 4 conference calls, it’s not 10am yet, I’ve missed breakfast and yet I’m still a happy Suvverner.

    *hops off to Kruger for yummy things.

    I went to Manchester once to drop off my then Ex at Uni, was greeted with a scummy yoof handbreak turning his shagged out Nova in front of the Uni entrance on the street.

    Ohh how I laughed, I’d never seen a car handbrake turned before.

    Thing is, once you’ve crossed the Thames it all starts to blend into a long, unremitting, grey dreariness, and trying to tell the gloomy natives apart is an exercise in futility. If they’d just cheer up a bit and stop mumbling it might be easier!

    Oh Christ! He’s back in the office. He’s not been in for a while. I’d happily blanked his up-beat sunny existence out of my mind. Its Wednesday FFS!! and I’ve had to put up with his irritating cheerfulness all bloody morning. I’d possibly forgive him if it was Friday afternoon. Or long liquid lunches were involved. But theres just no excuse for it!

    Its like working with Joey ****ing Essex!!! A happy simpleton, merrily chortling away to himself, taking delight in life simple pleasures.

    Can I kill him? Purleez can I kill him?

    I sympathise with you binners.
    We have a new receptionist who fits the above stereotype. Thankfully she’s at the other end of the office, so I can often hear her spreading her poisonous cheer on her way too me, giving me chance to sneak out for a coffee.

    Come work here, I’ve been in an hour and not spoken yet.

    My normal days are like this however, and it’s great.

    I’m working at home today.

    I’m a miserable bastard.

    The wife is full of cold so is miserable too.

    It’s bliss. Absolute bliss!

    Is that the long awaited sequel to Debby Does Dallas?

    Anyway, I’m glad he’s back as I didn’t spot Bear’s rather superb fax gag first time round

    Our newest member of staff used to work at Sotherbys and they were forbidden to talk in the office. Any sort of merriment got you an email from the boss 10 feet away.
    There’s definitely a few vacancies there for any of you miseries.

    probably been off with depression.
