What is it with office workers.. Im in the middle of a new PC upgrade, The new systems come with Flat panel monitors. 1/3 of the systems are being swapped out this year, the rest over the next 2 years. On a dally bases I get asked "when am I getting my new computer" or "flat panel". Or "why did Jill get a a flat panel and I didn't?" Its like working at a day care center some times. Then they get all bent out of shape because they didn't get on the swap out list. Its mainly the women that are the ones griping. Most of the time the guys could care less.

Good lord Im getting to old for this shit..

Delivery guy: "Who are these new flat panels for?"

FM: "Pull down everyone's pants. If you find a c*** drop a monitor there."

LOL

Too many Twinkies and not enough fresh air.


(That's my answer for most things.)

Reason 4,295 I will do my best to make sure I will never end up in a cube farm. I hear so many stories, (mainly here) about bad experiences in the "office environment."

It's even better when the women office worker hordes descend upon the hapless poor gal who actually did get the upgrade. It becomes a bonafide political reason to engage in a feeding frenzy for the biddies that didn't get the newest toy that they will never need/use/understand.

In my experience, the more valued the employees get the new shiney shit.

I've been DT since 1978. Don't do much end user support anymore except for the stupid family members who have no concept of what a systems architect does and proceeds to ask the 'computer guy' in the family about how to change the background of their desktop.

I don't go to many family events anymore.

We did just did a big rearranging of office and cube space. Can you paint my wall it looks like junk? Can you get my carpet steam cleaned? Can you move my desk to face??? Can I have a different file cabinet this one doesn't match? It's too noisy here the guy in the cube I face has a breathing problem? Can I move somewhere else I don’t like this? Why did I have to move? 54 moves and every complaint but one was a female.

Tell them it's because Jill is much prettier, and is nicer to the boss. Then they'll start a bitch campaign against each other, and get off your back. Plus it will provide you with some much-needed entertainment while you work.

"The list is decided by senior management on the basis of performance. I think you're scheduled for 2 years from now."

That ought to shut them up.

tell em they get a flat panel or a raise- guess how many take the panel....

This LCD thing is costing us plenty...in the long eun it will be benifical, but right now we are getting the same thing-people wondering when they "get theirs".
I tell them that they are being replaced thru attrition, but thats not good enothg and now they have "seeing problems" and need that 19" LCD or else they will go blind and die. Unfortunatley the bosses fall for it to avoid getting sued.

dont even start me on the people that see the programmers with TWO LCD's and decide they cant work without two...
