I'm exactly the same way - I don't know that I could function in a huge company or a huge department. I've mostly worked for smaller companies where I'm not just a number, and I have the opportunity to expand my experience.

I lived with my headphones on. My co-worker was still louder. It works to block out some of the sound, but not all (and I had to be able to hear my phone).

Working in retail was the worst experience of my life. It's just non-stop, cut throat ********. Of course there's the cut throat ******** in corporate workplaces too, but I much prefer a slower pace of work, and a job where I can have holidays and weekends off.

As did I. Plus on top of her talking, she purposely did little things that pissed me off. She has an apple every day, and crunches the **** out of it, then she'll have cottage cheese and scrape the bottom everytime even though it's full, and she knows those are the little things that work on my nerves. I was happy with my ipod, because even though most of the time I could still hear her, I would just pretend that I couldn't, and it was enough to cover up the other ****. Now that I can't listen to it, she does this **** even louder.

Kambo, I swear we had the same co-worker. Mine ate constantly. She'd have breakfast, then she'd have a huge bowl of yogurt with berries (clinking the friggen' bowl with every spoonful, to the point where I hear a clink on glass now and shudder), then she'd have a mid-morning snack. Then she'd have rice cakes or something in a cellophane bag (crinkle, crinkle, crinkle). THEN she'd have lunch.

I've never seen anyone eat so much. Every single friggen' day. Ever seen an overweight vegetarian? I have.

Re: Briere disallowed goal. How can Toronto say that it was a deliberate kick?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGB_6u_pmP8

At 0:54-0:55, Briere isn't even looking at his foot, and his momentum is clearly by contact with the Islander D. And the burden of proof is that the video replay must be inconclusive to overrule the on-ice call.

Unbelievable!

For me, it's the people I work with that make the job enjoyable, not the work itself. I hate working, period, and as long as I'm working with people who are fun, I actually can have a good time. I'm the kind of guy who cracks jokes during the meeting about lackluster second quarter numbers, yet is serious enough to propose solutions to existing problems.

I need to get a real degree and get on with my life, haha.

How the hell did this work discussion come from a game day thread?

In isolation none of the last three wins is that impressive, but in succession they're pretty satisfying, particularly since things were going as poorly they were. If we can beat the Rangers next game that'll go a long way towards convincing me that they're really back on track .

If you aren't allowed a cell phone and your job doesn't involve a security clearance then you are probably failing at life.

That's basically what Briere was saying after the game. He definitely wasn't pumped about the call...

The best part is, this ***** complains constantly about how she needs to lose weight. The morning she'll do her cottage cheese, then apple. For lunch, she has a protein shake which she feels the need to blend at the desk even though the break room is right down the aisle, and has to slurp every.last.drop. After lunch, she'll have an orange, and then normally does a bag of animal crackers from the vending machine. And every single one is just as annoying as the other, except for maybe the orange. The only thing I can do to get back to her is crunch ice. The other one that hasn't showed for work since July used to crunch all day long, and I know it irked her, so I took on the new role even though that drove me crazy too.

well I do work in a factory so the signals from a cellphone is weak anyway and the noise is an issue listening to music with the machinery.
Would be nice to have earphones listening to music.
Maybe with the phones now that have cameras they are worried about trade secrets being given away?

They need to find a way to get it right, no they need to clarify the kicking rule, because there seems to be a gray area.

Briere rolled his eyes about 2 seconds after that video ends, and was laughing.

Every thread on this board turns into an OBT thread! As far as work goes, I have the best of both worlds...if I really want to be alone, I just drive around and do my own thing. If not, I'll help the guys with their calls, if I'm not on my own calls..... I could never work in an office.

I agreed with the call. It hurts to say that because I just know their ********* announcers were probably adamant about it from the beginning, if not angry, and were probably smug when the call was finally made. As opposed to ours who, aside from Coatesy, thought it was close.

Bottom line for me is I saw what I thought of as a dkm. I think some people confuse the word "distinct" with "ideal", thinking it should resemble a soccer kick. It can be distinct and subtle at the same time. The way I saw it the leg went out of its way to run into the puck, even if it was a matter of 8ths of an inch.
