He joined a few days ago & now he is totally creeping me out. And don’t say that I am being paranoid, okay?!?!?! How would you like it if a colleague comes over to your desk 20 times a day when he could have just called you on the extension?! And then there are those eyes that don’t blink when they look at you. Oh man, do you even have eyelids?!?! Stop creeping me out!!!!
He asks questions like, oh who do I have to inform if I need a program installed on my PC? CALL THE IT LAH, DUMB!!! Even if he was that dumb, he could have just called me on my extension number which I had already given to him so many times.
Then he comes over to ask about how to print documents & which photocopier to use & how to make coffee. ARGH!!! Get your damn secretary to do it for you!
And he needs me to advice him on whether he should wear a tie & how to address people. Sigh. When in doubt, observe others & learn. That’s what I did when I first join any company. I would wear smart office wear & come to work, then observe if there is a casual Friday. It’s always better to dress up than down in an office. And I always address someone by their 1st names unless they are the bosses.
Somehow it seems like this guy is afraid to offend people so he keeps asking questions in advance to find out instead of learning on his own. But in that process, he is starting to irritate me.
There was even 1 time when he stood SILENTLY behind me while I was typing out an email, then just as I turn around to reach for my cup, THERE HE WAS. STANDING THERE. LOOKING AT ME WITH THOSE BIG UN-BLINKING EYES. I almost died from fright or I could have splashed my cup of hot tea in his face for being so creepy.
How long has he been standing there?!?! What if I was surfing porn?!?!?! What if I was doing something personal? Like thinking I was alone in my private little corner cubicle & started to scratch my armpit or bum or worse, dig my nose. Or or or… I could be adjusting my panties because I was getting a wedgie from shifting in my seat.
NOT COOL, DUDE. Not cool.
I wish he would stop bothering me with his stupid questions. Come to me only when you got something important to ask. Stop wasting my time, ok. I got so many other important stuff to be done, but each time he comes over, he talks for 5 mins. It is bad enough that he is asking all these questions, he has got to be long-winded as well. That is like… … double whammy for me. It’s like, step on my left foot, nevermind. He got to step on the right foot as well.
1 visit = 5 mins
20 visits = 100 mins
Ever since he joined the company, he has been wasting 100 mins of my time everyday. I don’t even take that many breaks when I’m working.
The way I see it, whenever he wastes 100 mins of my work time, that means that I am going to be 100 later to do other stuff. I have to work OT for an additional 100 mins to make up for the time he had wasted. And I get home 100 mins later. Another 100 mins later to eating my dinner. And 100 mins later before I can go to bed. But I still wake up at the same time the next morning to go to work, so that is 100 mins lesser for me to catch up on my sleep. And the next day, the cycle repeats.
God, I hope he runs out of questions soon.
