Thirteen Things You Should Not Do at Work That I Have Done:

1. Walk around while not wearing shoes
2. Tell your boss that you suck
3. Mock the boss repeatedly... to his face (when I was a summer clerk)
4. Cry
5. Mock the boss repeatedly... behind his back (again, when I was a summer clerk)
6. Admit to a client that you have no idea what he is talking about
7. Spend more time avoiding work than doing work
8. Forget to put on deodorant when it is 90 degrees outside
9. Spill coffee all over your desk
10. Accidentally flash your underwear to everyone (my pants were too low and I kept having to bend down to get things like printer paper, revealing some of my underwear... it was yellow... at least it was not a thong)
11. Show up late
12. Take the last of the coffee and not make more (I have only done this once)
13. Get burrito on a document

1-I've done that a few times, but it all depends where you work!
2- Told my boss he sucked
3- Ask my boos how he could walk with his pants around his ankle like that...
9- Spill a can of coke all over my desk.
11- Called in sick when I wasn't!
13- Get shishtaouk juice all over a keyboard.

I've done most of those. If my shoes can come off, they do. I try to remember to put them on since I really only get up to go to the bathroom, and yes, I remember before I leave the cubicle.
I cry at work all the time. Usually in the bathroom..if I didn't, I would be coming in with an AK47
I mock my boss all the time. To her face and behind her back...see the AK47 comment.
I never spilled coffee, since I don't drink it, but I have spilled soda and water all over paperwork and stuff.
I have told people I have no idea what they are talking about, but when you start talking and say what's going on with my car, and give me no info, that's what happens.

I've never told a boss that he/she sucks to their face. I stick with the behind the back comments. :)

LOL I think I have done all of those.. except the burrito thing. Not only have I told my boss he sucked, I've also told him he was an asshole. That was fun. A more likeable boss I had, I constantly mocked and made fun of to his face, usually in front of other people. LOL. Thankfully he was pretty good natured about it and gave as good as he got.

I have done at least seven of those... eight if you substitute "frosting" for "burrito."

Oh, I used to eat at my desk all the time and get food all over medical records and legal documents. Especially mustard. And it is very yellow. Oh, and of course, coffee.

I have cried at work. Being the only woman in the office, they probably figure I'm just being girly...

Karen said...

oh man- what a great list! all very funny. have a good weekend!

don't call me MA'AM said...

I have also had 8. It would be 9... I openly mocked something that happened, not realizing that my boss was instrumental in making it happen. Oops. But that doesn't count, right?

Hey, I was going to comment on the sick bush post but never got back to it. I have those same bushes and have heard my mom call them "Burning Bushes." I tried to find some answers on the internet and even asked my mom (who is a landscaping and gardening Queen), but I came up empty.
Next time my mom stops by, I'll show her the photos and maybe she'll have some suggestions. I'll let you know.

You know what, R? I think I've been THINKING I was commenting on your blog but really just reading (much like Jonniker mentioned she'd done wtih mine in a recent comment). I'm sorry I suck so badly.

I'm not trying to be a link whore, but on along the lines of showing one's underwear at work:

I've walked around the office without shoes before. Sometimes the damn heels, they hurt too much to wear all day! What's the problem?
