The woman I share an office just does not shut up from one end of the day to another. Every email she gets, I get a run down on it. Every phonecall she gets, she hangs up and I get a report of the whole phonecall. Every time something strange happens her computer, it's "what's this", "what's that". Seriously, it goes on all day, and I'm ready to crack up!!!
sounds like someone who never gotten attention growing up and is desperate for it. i know what you mean, its so annoying all you can do is try to ignore her really. she probably drives everyone else barmy too!
Moet for me
There is one in every office, I used to say to the girl in mine sorry I'm up to my eyes here I'll chat to you in a second and then not look up again for ages.
Yep, there are definitely people like that everywhere. Thankfully I don't have one in the same office with me though, but can imagine what it must be like.
can you just plug in your ipod?
make it very obvious you've got your headphones in.
Some days I just ignore it and I don't mind, but other days it really grates at me....and today is one of them.
And in between all that stuff, I get the run down on every single one of her children's lives!!! One is doing this, the other is doing that. She asks me something about my house, or my hubby, and I swear it's only a conversation opener so that she can go on and on and on and on and on about her own daughter's house and husband!!!
oh my god madgie, i am in exactly the same position. The girl that works across from me shreeks down the phone and fake laughs all over the place. She just got engaged at christmas, and you would swear she is the only woman ever to have gotten engaged in the world ever!! she does my head in, one day she actually told 17 people her proposal story from start to finish, and by 17 people i mean clients who could not care less. She makes more personal calls than business calls, and screeches and cackles during everyone of them
I feel your pain too Madgie - woman in here seems to think we need a running commentary on her entire day, from the emails she gets, to the clients coming in to the cars in the carpark to the type of coffee someone's asked for to the BLAH BLAH BLAH....
HELLO? I DON'T CARE, GO AWAY
Through a sock at her maybe then she will get the message!
i am sitting next to someone like that too - i know more about her personal life than i want to cos she is incapable of having a quiet phone conversation
