PostSubject: men at work   Thu Mar 05, 2009 12:13 pm

there are a couple of issues i have when it comes to men at work.

Working on Reception:

1. i have to deal with really ignorant,ill mannered and generally horrible delivery drivers.
one of which shoves his clipboard and item at me and grumbles.
do i act politely and let him be a misserable git for the rest of his life? or give him a sharp snappy reaction back and tell him not to be so rude?

2. i think my niceness (word of the day) can often be confused with flirting...i got asked by one man in particular, this- 'do you have a stapler or know of where i can find one?', i gave him a very simple answer of 'sorry i don't have one, you could try the stationary cupboard'.
with every reply, he stares at me, burning a hole in my head with a cheshire cat grin, as if i'm meant to respond further. it's very annoying and quite frankly creepy. what can i do?

Well, with regard to the 80's pop band, I suggest you listen to their music a little more and you'll probably find it will grow on you. After all, who can fail to like their top 10 hit 'Land Down Under' with its classic line "She smiled and gave me a VeggieMite sandwich". Classic gold!

With regard to your other problems, I suggest a swift knee in the Goolies is a standard defensive mechanism........ a thousand snappy combacks won't get the message across quite like bruised and swollen nadgers.

Hope this helps.

no one should have to search out land down under, isn't it automatically imprinted in everyones subconscious?

it's strange how much i actually like 80's music, considering i wasn't old enough to listen to it in great detail.

not a big fan of anything 90's, i like music from that time, just through sheer nostalgia tho.

oh, er, he's a little bit like that, but less full of himself.
more that geeky type, that aims for girls outside their own league.
not that i think highly of myself there of course.

Agreed. The 90's did to the 80's what the 60's did to the 50's.
