Things You Don’t Want to Do Around Maggie at Work
Working in radio is a blast. Working with some people inside of the radio station, not so much. We all have pet peeves about people and or things that go on in our workplaces. I have always said, “you do not have to be friends with everyone you work with.”
That being said, after some of my co-workers read this I may be down to only one friend. That one friend is Tony LaBrie, because in no way shape or form do the following comments pertain to him. Ever.
This one is tricky. Yes, people must breathe to live, but why so loud? Snorting, sniffling, coughing and hacking are sounds I hear daily. I am not talking about sick people either. This is how these mother truckers breathe.
Use the Lunch Room as a Conference Room
I don't know about you but I have always thought you eat lunch in a lunch room. Nope, in this building lunch room apparently means "talk on your cell phone as loud as you can room." Everyone in this building has a desk. We even have a conference room. Use it. I am in direct ear shot of this "mini office" and I know far to much about some of my co-workers. Pregnancy scares, arguments with significant others, even explicit surgery details. I have heard it all. Actually, I am too grossed out to even eat in there anymore.
Smoke... A LOT!
I smoke. I do not smoke at work. Who has the time? Some people here. If I just stood in the lobby 18 times a day for 10 minutes, I feel like I would be asked "what are you doing?" However, if you are outside smoking, that is acceptable. People that don't waste 45 minutes a day smoking should be able to leave 45 minutes early. From the looks of it, Chris Monroe should be working 8:00am to 8:00pm to make up for his smoking.
Bring Dogs/Kids to Work
I understand there are certain situations when a child may be at the radio station. In between school and home, waiting to be picked up by another parent, etc. However, when did the office become a daycare? This may come as a shocker, but most people do not think your kid is as awesome as you do. If you don't think people bring their pets here too, think again. I was in here a few Sundays ago, and our cleaning guy had a dog in here. One gal used to bring in her little dog in and let it run around. I may have stepped on it, I can't remember for sure.
Be Chris Monroe
Where do I begin? Chris basically is all of the above situations in one person. To be fair he did not bring in a dog, but he certainly is a pussy. Thanks Chrissy, I could not have done this post without you! You are truly an inspiration.
