Recent examples of unusual workplace behaviour


#1

Lad who started here a while ago comes in in the morning, takes his coat off but doesn’t hang it on a hook or the back of his chair or anything, he just chucks it on the floor next to him, does the same if he removes a jumper or something during the day.

Thoughts?


#2

hang your jacket up ffs, tone


#3

m9 i work in a company of insane eccentrics. recent things include someone throwing a chair at a wall


#4

What kind of chair?


#5

normal sort of dining chair style. i think one with wheels and a spinning base would be insanely difficult to pick up fluidly because the turning motion might unbalance you


#6

That’s what I was wondering tbh, would be quite a funny image though


#7

i just picked my office chair up and it was so tricky to get it to balance how i want


#8

Early draft Oasis needed revision etc


#9

Unrelatedly?


#10

just coz of the conversation now. have a go with yours? not throwing it. but the balance is weirdly off when it’s an ergonomic swivel chair


#11

never hang my coat up. Goes either on back of chair, or chuck it on the empty desk next to me where my colleague used to be


#12

I can’t do that right now I’m afraid but I’ll try to let you know about it at a more convenient time.


#13

throw it at SD for me (if he is within range)


#14

Have started going to the kitchen and filling up a bowl with just milk (communal milk meant for tea and coffee), and then adding the cereal at my desk. This means that I walk through the office with just a bowl of milk with a spoon in, but is actually saving me valuable energy by not carrying my cereal box with me. people think this is weird

  • weird
  • great thinking!

It’s not quite throwing a chair at a wall, but I reckon the person in this invite I just got must be a bit “unusual”.

"Come along to this week’s lunch and learn session and join nutritional therapist, [redacted] who will help you avoid those festive binges, learn how to make good food choices and feel amazing.

[redacted] who is also an application engineer in our [redacted] team, will give you nine ways to avoid Christmas weight gain (and still have fun).

She says: “I’ll reveal the reasons why we’re prone to piling on the pounds over the festive season as well as sharing some top tips for avoiding weight gain – and still enjoy yourself”.

Everyone is welcome, but remember that these sessions are first come, first served so come early if you want a seat!

Hmm, I admire this in principal but would have concerns about the cereal:milk ratio if I were going to try it out. As such, I can’t participate in the poll.


#17

keep the bowl and the cereal in the same place?


#18

That is bad and insidious IMO


#19

sinister
