Thing I hate #412: Annoying speakerphone etiquette

I love speakerphones. The ones we have where I work are surprisingly good. What I hate is when a co-worker down the hall is calling someone, leaves the phone on speaker while dialing, and lets it ring and ring and ring for 2 minutes.

Hey, genius, if they’re not gonna answer in the first minute, they’re not bloody likely to answer in the second minute either. And, if I can hear it all the way down the hall, you can turn it down some.

Rant completed. (On the bright side, my team is moving buildings soon, and I will no longer be down the hall from the same people as I currently am.)

i hate texas weather!

So, the weather deities are playing cruel, cruel jokes on us here in Texas. Last week, the temperatures during the day were in the 70's and 80's, not so much winter weather. Last Friday, we finally got a cold front, and the temperature during the day was 40's to 50's, which is much nicer than what it was. Night time temps got to the mid 20's. Now, today, I had a sweater on this morning, and it's definitely back up to 72F right now.


Thanks for listening to my rant.

time changes stink!

Ugh. It gets dark at 5:30pm. I hate this. The sun is up way before I am (as most of you reading this probably know, I AM NOT a morning person), and at 6:00am it tries to wake me up by blaring through the windows…

You know, I don't really have a problem with the concept of “Daylight Saving Time” and “Standard Time”. BUT STOP CHANGING THEM AROUND. You people are messing with my head.
