Hey guys,
what's the worst thing that your co-workers/bosses do that ticks you off the most?
Here's a couple to get the ball rolling.
1. Looking over my shoulder and staring at my monitor. To add insult to injury making comments on what's on my browser window/desktop.
2. Changing source code that I own and not bothering to inform me about it.

I absolutely hate it when one of my disgruntled co-workers shows up to work with an automatic weapon and "airs his grievances". I just can't tell you how much that pisses me off. I mean how rude can you get?

What I really hate is when my boss bitch slaps me cause he thinks I'm holding out on him.

I hate it when after having been on my back all day, the cameraman suddenly realizes that he forgot to put film in the camera and we have to reshoot the whole thing.

Six words - "Quick Robin, to the Bat Pole".
I guess I do get free room and board, but how long do I have to put with being his "youthful ward"? And what's the deal with making me wear this speedo thing in public? You guys just don't know. The things I could tell you. Yeah, "Bat Cave"... right.... My boss is a sick and twisted freak.

I hate playing second fiddle to my boss, when I should be in charge. How illogical is that? I'm stronger, smarter, have all my own hair, and I'm a much better director.

My job is okay now. But I have to tell you, the people I worked for in my previous job could be pretty unforgiving. They just had no appreciation for the pressures I was under.
Take the whole Elian Gonzales thing. Poor little Cuban boat boy, left adrift in the unforgiving waters off the coast of Florida, just struggling to stay alive and reach that glimmering beacon of freedom in the distance. I feel his pain. But the next thing I know I'm getting it from all sides. Keep him here. Send him back. All looking to me to decide where he should ultimately go.
And I don't need to tell you the reason for my hesitation. I was impeached the last time I decided where to stick a Cuban.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
