People that whistle all day in the office
boss has a habit of bursting into the area I work (not an office) in full song at about 200db. And i don’t work in a theatre. Typically a single line form a song he’s clearly heard in the morning. You’ll hear the same line later in the day, under his breath and then later, back at full Wembley vol.Posted 1 year agoMalvern RiderMember
My bil has a theory that chronic whistlers and hummers are subconsciously trying (and failing) to convince themselves and others that they are not already dead inside… even though they clearly are
I’m convinced! Having caught self (emerging whistler?) whistling I am somewhat concerned. Picture this:
Chin raised noticeably skyward at a jaunty angle in the supermarket aisle late last Thursday. It had been a particularly challenging day, yet I felt light-hearted to be momentarily carefree. Maybe the piped-music and cool air, maybe the promise of a bottle of ale? Maybe a combination of contributory factors? Carefree and whistfully whistling. But then I realised I was becoming ‘that whistler’ and promptly ceased. I now look at the floor if tempted to begin whistling. I find this helps.
Office whistlers? No excuses. Show them the door. Really.Posted 1 year agoJef WachowchowMember
I just opened STW for the first time this morning and saw this thread first, while sat at my desk, in the office and whistling.
Personally I think that my whistling is in fact brightening up everyone else’s, otherwise dull and quiet day. I am sure they love it.Posted 1 year agoRusty SpannerSubscriber

Play the earworm game.
Great in a big office.
1 to 3 players.
Each player picks a song and attempts to plant it in the brain of as many non playing colleagues as possible, making them sing it out loud.
Decide on a time limit before hand, but people tend to get a bit jumpy and annoyed after a few weeks.Posted 1 year agoCountZeroMember
Are you allowed to kill them?
That’s being too kind to them – solitary confinement in a room with soft walls should be the rule.
We had one, whistled Greensleeves every single sodding day. His nick name was “Thrush”. He asked why, Is it because I whistle like a bird?? We said because he was an “irritating cu$$”
