It's the grown up equivalent of the fucking school yard.

It's fucking tedious.

Yeah, usually their complaints are are about small things too.
I mean there's one guy here who doesn't listen and can only relate to a conversation topic in terms of something about himself.
This is an understatement, but he's grand like, means no harm. Nothing to get worked up about.

Unless this is some new form of satire you've lost me yet again phier.

There's no segue to sentence 2 from sentence 1.

Sure there is. This guy would be a constant form of frustration to some people here from the sounds of things, but i only mention him to make the point that i haven't mentioned him.

I usually like shivos work rants, never took from it that he thinks he's the smartest in the room more so that he just works with idiots.

Not intended that way anyway.

I know from my own place that technically speaking there are people who would be a lot more knowledgeable than me but I also work with some people that as far as I'm concerned shouldn't be let near a lab as they appear to not have a knowledge of basic microbiology. From Shivo's rants it seems that he works with some people who can't do what should be simple enough jobs without fucking up. I know we're only getting his side of it but he seems like a nice enough chap so I choose to believe him

I'd like the record to show that a monkey could do my job.
Most of my complaints aren't focusing on people being idiots, just complete cunts.

What a nightmare. how does that work, do you have a timed conversation with various work colleagues and then decide which ones you like and then send pictures of your knob to them on snapchat or whatever.

My last place was grand, colleague-wise, cause we'd a really small team. The company had recently been taken over by the Brits....Irish managers were largely grand, but the Brit managers started taking over and are the absolute worst. Maybe not quite as bad as the American run place in Donegal, but still a lot of bullshit business speak and horrible corporate culture.

Sounds like it bar the knob pictures. Will find out in an hour and a half.
