Reasons I should stop talking now.

I sit behind a low wall in a huge "office", which is actually a big room which used to be a vault. There are six of us in the room and I sit right beside my boss. Literally we are less than three feet apart.

It's a great seat, despite the fact that I have a credenza for a desk and I don't have anything like tape or scissors or, you know, a phone. I can sit here, do my work, still hear all the people in the room. We have a small window at the front of the room and people come by and drop off requests, documents, and so on.

Sometimes people stand at the front of the room and talk and I don't see them, but I can usually hear them.

Which is why I shouted to someone today that the reason the HR manager wasn't calling them back was, and I quote,

"BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE A DICK!"


Sadly, the brand, spanking new project manager had walked up to the door and was standing beside her.


Which is still better than the fact that I shouted, "MOTHER OF ASS!" yesterday at the exact moment that the company President strolled by our door and decided to stop and pay us a visit.

Oddly, he continued walking.


Maybe talking is okay. Maybe I should just stop shouting randomly?

Has anyone made an appointment for you to visit HR and discuss appropriate and inappropriate language to use in the office? Or maybe inside vs outside voice?

If not, I suspect they are enjoying your shouts.

ROFL I like leblanc's response -- You can claim Tourette's Syndrome, and then you can not only say what you want, you can claim protection under the ADA! Win-win situation. Although there's the tricky part of medical documentation . . . . LOL
