Worst Person in My World!
On Keith Obermann's show, he has a segment about the "worst person in the world". It ranks people in the world (worse, worser and Worst) that have done usually bad thingsToday, that segment played into my head as I thought about some of my less-than-nice coworkers. The Worse person would be a secretary that likes to travel across the office to have me staple papers. It is annoying, but seriously funny! The Worser person is another secretary who has decided to yell at me and my co-receptionist about things we don't know about (like new secretary-attorney assignments.) She is just one of those mean people that wants everyone else to be as unhappy as her. (which makes her equivient to a mean lap dog). Today at 2:00 p.m. I met the WORST PERSON IN MY WORLD! A little back story is in order. On my floor there is a door to the stair well. Occationally, the door knob gets stuck and creates a rather loud buzzing noise. Most of the time when this happens, the person who walked through it will quickly turn around and flip the knob and the buzzing noise immediately stops. This afternoon, one particular attorney, we will call him "Jerk", came upstairs. Jerk has come up through the door before. He knows the drill. Jerk knows that if he doesn't fix the door, I have to get up and stop the buzzing (There is another secretary that will also rush to the door to fix it) Today, Jerk walked through the door and it starts buzzing. Not only does he ignore the noise, he proceeds to stop me on my way to fix the door to give me something to leave at the reception desk. Then he proceeds to stop and wait for the elevators to come. While we are still trying to get the door to stop buzzing and actually ask, "What is up with that door?" REALLY???? REALLY!!!!! So Jerk apparently is SO important that he can't be bothered to stop to fix the door. Instead he will watch me and my co-worker scramble over to the door so it doesn't disturb anyone, and ask really annoying questions about it. WOW! Next time, Jerk, you have something to leave at the front desk, do me a favor in inter-office it or have a runner bring it to me! So that is why JERK, YOU ARE THE WORST PERSON IN MY WORLD!!!!!
