    (rant) Overhead speakers.....

    Alright, I am getting sick of morons that cannot use the overhead speaker in a reasonable manner here at work....really how hard is it to talk in a normal manner into a phone, so that it can be heard through the loudspeakers? This might be a bit over the top, but I have to deal with this almost non-stop, 12hours a day, 6 days a week....

    1) please refrain from doing Dalek impersonations in the overhead. When I find the moron that is doing this, there will be one person with a phone stapled to their head. Impersonate all you want now punk.

    2) Do not act like a sports announcer, it's not f---ing funny. "DAAAAAAAVE CAAALLL BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAAAAAH" How about "GOOOOOO TOOOOOO HEEEEEEELLL"

    3) Calm the hell down. Seriously....hyperness on the overhead is just ********. It's a freaking phone, not disneyland. You lose at the overhead, walk out the door, and go lay down in one of the truck loading docks. Thank you.

    4) Stop scraming into it....this is not funny, this is not cool, this gives me a throbbing headache. I know who you are, and my last day, i will be behind you with a bullhorn. The word of the day is your name, at 110dB.

    5) Turn off the freaking overhead when you are sitting at your desk making inappropriate conversation. I had to put up with your inane self for nearly an hour the other day. Great to know I'm losing profitshare to idiots like you who are sitting around talking about their vagina all day. Please go somewhere...anywhere....just not here. Not the loading dock either....I doubt even death can shut your auto-flapping jaw.

    6) For those who use it right....good for you, really....now find me some metal stock and nuts and bolts so I can make a cage to ship off all those who can't to a random 3rd world nation.

    So how is your day at work going?
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Slow...troubleshooting some bad test code.

    I just get sick of people screaming into the overhead, it's loud enough that it completely derails all thought, even with earplugs on....I think gunshots are quieter.

    Get to work early and unwire the overhead speaker by you.

    Problem solved

    I would except for the security cameras, and the need to use special scaffolding to get up that high.

    The speakers are around 35ft up.

    However, a high powered pellt ***** might be enough to down it....but alas I do not have a concealable pump pellet *****

    Get a daisy pumpmaster and saw it down. 35 bucks. Also, I don't know how the building is set up, but if the grid is sturdy enough, there may be a way to get onto it from a different room, climb over and rip the wires from the thing.

    Of course, the only realistic solution is earplugs.
    Bring back the Sig Test!

    Is one of your co-workers freelancing as a part-time phone sex operator while at her regular job?

    but of course


    ....and nope, apparently she's not a phone sex operator...but she does need to stop that...it wasn't hot at all....it was just annoying.

    Imagine if I was to talk over the intercom about my wang....there might be one or two people that would find that intriguing or even fascinating, but I think the other 340-odd people couldn't would just find it annoying and ********.

    It was like I was back in jr.high....

    I don't mind intercom pranks, but that was far from an intercom prank. last good prank was one of the guys doing that laugh from the start of the song "wipeout" as loud as he could....lots of folks' eyes opened up nice and wide when that happened
