I just figured out how to get the most annoying person in the company to stop talking to me. I pissed him off. And it was seriously enjoyable.
I was in someone’s office when he came in. He started talking and I started walking. He said, “Wait, just a minute.” I said, “That’s ok, I don’t need to talk to him anymore.” He said, “No, wait.” I said, “I said I didn’t need to talk to him. He’s all yours.” He said, “No, I need to talk to you.” I said, “No, you don’t”, walking away. He said, “Wait. I need to talk to you.” I said, “No, you don’t. I don’t have anything to do with that project anymore.” He said, “It’s not about that.” I said, “Sorry, I, uh, have a thing.”
At this point I had already turned and walked into my office. He still hasn’t come by and it’s been about 45 minutes. I got an IM from the guy whose office he was in and it said, “Uh, he’s pissed.” I said, “Too bad.” And that ended that.
You know, part of me actually feels bad. The rest of me, however, is taunting that part unmercifully and I think it’s going to crack under the pressure any minute………Yep, there it went. It is now whimpering in a dark corner of my mind.
And I thought this was going to be a crappy day.
