i've noticed that several people i work with have like three stories total, and they tell them OVER and OVER and OVER, as if we all haven't heard them eleventy billion times already.
anyone have this unpleasant experience?
do these people seriously not know they've told it before?
do you do this??
am i taking crazy pills???
I do a bit of work for Top Gear Magazine actually.
This one guy just talks about all the chix he gets with. Pretty f-in annoying. It sounds like 8th grade. Yesterday he said "my back is killing me" then proceeded to lift up his shirt and show us all the claw marks on his back.
our lunch room conversation is always one of three topics:
3. eating balls
'the one with the bad humour'
the one with the bad music'
main reason I went freelance...
you talked about this already
drug stories are the worst.
But off topic but I had a good one today (people have probably done this)
Well one of the designers was having a disagreement with the studio manager about the time needed to correct this image for a front cover and it got a little heated.
Anyway after the arguement the designer sends me an email saying how the studio manager is a cock, but the email never arrives to my inbox, but he infact emailed it to the studio manager.
are your coworkers not on qbn? better watch outs!
they're all good people, i've just noticed this strange glitch about them and wondered if it was universal
My co-workers are on QBN, and they're all gay!
I've had coworkers tell me mortifying confessions, and then being around them at work makes me worry!
Re-tell one of there stories, but change a few names and places around and see if they notice. If they don't catch on, re-tell the story again and again while slowly changing the details of the story to more closely reflect those that are in theirs until you are telling the same exact story. This may take a few months, but maybe you'll be able to convince them that it was always your story and they'll stop telling it.
i was freelancing a couple years ago, we were all sitting around telling crazy stories from college, very tame stories all of them, but i remember we were all laughing about them.
the ft IT guy comes in and is like 'hey i have some good college stories - this one time...' and proceeds to tell us about this girl he was hooking up with, she was super hot but addicted to meth so that was his in, he would give her meth. she had a kid that stayed in the other room, and was in one of those hospital bed clear pod things with tubes coming out because she was doing meth while pregnant, etc.
anyway he finished the story and we all just stood there staring at him...
