I really don’t know where some people get the nerve

January 11, 2010

So I was just on a conference call at work, a fairly important one I might add, as we are in the height of some pretty busy times here this month. Cube Guy decided to show up today, and actually had the audacity to come over to my cube while I was on the phone and ask me to turn down the volume. Are you kidding me buddy? All day we listen to you talk at the top of your lungs about personal matters, and you have the audacity to come ask me to tone it down a bit when I am on a quick 10 minute work-related phone call? This guy can’t be serious. A co-worker was also on the call with me in my cube, and Cube Guy definitely saw me roll my eyes at him and look at him in utter horror when he asked me to tone it down. This sh*t cannot be for real. I know dude’s entire life story as he is on the phone constantly talking about taking care of his parents, his mother’s menstrual cycle, bailing his ex-girlfriend out of prison, you name it – I have heard it. It is actually a wonder that he showed up today and I haven’t heard much out of him other than him talking down to someone about how his computer is not working, along with a nice hearty belch. This guy is absolutely ridiculous.

Just an FYI, according to Cube Guy, one side effect of narcotics is that it slows down your bowels. Good to know.


late night in the office

November 30, 2009

What are the chances that I would be here at 9pm on a Monday night and Cube guy is here too, after a month long haitus?  Does he really need to stay till 9pm?  What the eff is he doing here besides blabbing on the phone till the wee hours of the evening?  The better question here probably is – do I really need to stay here till 9pm?  Right now I’m listening to him fight with his daughter on the phone.  He also has a new iPhone and I know this because he has picked the worst ring you could possibly choose, that I only use as an alarm if extremely necessary.  An alarm as your ringtone?  Seriously?  I may go crazy if people keep calling this guy.  WOW.  He’s now arguing with his daughter.  She is so loud that I can hear her on the line.  He just hung up on her.  Pure enjoyment on a Monday night in the office.  9pm.  Gotta love budget season.

end of the mystery

I’m sorry to belabor this topic, and I’m not sure if anyone even cares, but Cube guy is on the phone again and just said he’s been out of the office more than he’s been in it because he’s been taking care of his parents…I think this was my fifth guess (see earlier blog post “I live Office Space”).  It’s not lung cancer!  We can all breathe a sigh of relief.

news flash

October 21, 2009

You may not believe this guys, because I don’t believe it myself, but I was notified as I was leaving the office last night that Cube guy will be leaving us soon.  I can’t say why just yet because the news isn’t public (I’m sure you really won’t care but I’d rather not loose my job), but he will no longer be in the cube next to me.  I don’t know if this is good news or bad.  Good for my work product because I will actually now be able to concentrate, but bad for pure comic relief and blog purposes.  I really am completely stunned that I will no longer hear his annoying voice, cough, and him talking down to everyone he speaks to anymore.  Between Laura leaving and now Cube guy, I really don’t know how I am going to get by in this office any longer.

I spoke too soon

October 20, 2009

Cube guy just arrived….stay tuned.

I have nothing to blog about

October 20, 2009

Sorry guys – nothing funny is coming to mind to blog about as of late.  Cube guy isn’t here, so obviously I am lacking in material at the moment.  Maybe next week….about him I mean.  Another topic has GOT to come to mind shortly.  I mean, what have I been doing the past few days, not making fun of myself and not laughing at anything?  Doubtful.  Next idea that pops into my head, you will be the first to know.

Oh…I have something.  Weds night guy is now going to be called Romeo.  Only because I am going to continue to see him, at least for the time being cause things aren’t going too poorly.  The name switch is occurring because I told Laura that he writes poetry (random I know), and immediately she starts calling him Romeo.  What would I do without Laura nicknaming all the important and not so important people in my life?  I just called him Weds night guy before because that was the guy I went out with on Weds night (do you see the relevance?) that week when I had two dates.  So really that was kind of insignificant.  Romeo is a bit more catchy so we are going to go with that.

Just learned his age.  He’s 61 years old.  In case anyone was wondering.
