The pet peeve found at my job


So here I work at a cubicle workroom type place. I type for the USPS fixing your typos and return to senders(RTS). For some odd reason I cannot place, they removed all 8 clocks leaving only 1! Thats right! Just one for all the workroom that consists of over 200 computers. *SIGH*

So from where I was sitting, I had to turn around completely to see the clock. Now why am I so into clocks?
Well my job is a place where every second counts. We are to type as soon as we sit down. Breaks are to be EXACT. No More no Less. No cellphones allowed and I just happen to have my watch dead.

So here I was looking back at the clock every 10 -15 minutes,counting down to go to break. During one of these intervals, I turned around to find a man sitting behind me with the computer monitor cranked all the way high! He must like the up high feeling because not only his monitor, but himself and the whole darn desk was at its highest capacity!

I couldn't see the clock at all. I had to literally moved my whole body to a side just to see it. I just wanted to smack the man and tell him to move or something. But of course I couldn't.

I found out that it annoyed me soo much like when people leave the towels on the floor, chew gum like a cow, that annoying lilt in the voice, the extremely high pitched voice, the slow 10 miles under per hour driver, the tailgater, the extreme weaver, hair in stockings, the sticky shoe, gum under your shoe, the handicapped parking stealer, the back washer, the partner in bed that hogs up all the sheets at night , the unflusher, the one person who calls you every week for money and so on and so one.......

We all have pet peeves, some more than others. Here is what Wikipedia has to say about pet peeves.

For the 1980s metal band, see Pet Hate. For other uses, see Pet peeve (disambiguation).

A pet peeve (or pet hate) is a minor annoyance that an individual identifies as particularly annoying to them, to a greater degree than others may find it. Examples may be poor table manners, sloppy kitchen hygiene, smoking, grammatical errors in written passages, inconsiderate driving or lazy co-workers, and loud gum smacking.
