I can't stand my annoying co-worker!
By staplerman Story ID: 108
Here is an office story for you.. I think I am normally a pretty good citizen and normally wouldn't do something like this. It’s just that my co-worker who sits next to me annoys the hell out of me. It'a bit of a petty story to be honest.. He uses my stapler. For some reason he hasn’t gotten his own stapler. All he needs to do, is to ask one of the PAs for one. He is new, or relatively new, and for some reason hasn’t asked for his stapler. So he keeps on using my stapler!
My stapler sits on my desk, and whenever he needs to staple something, he grabs my stapler and staples. He never refills staples. NEVER! He is a complete taker and NEVER a giver. Just takes, takes, takes, and takes..!! I wonder how his wife deals with him? She’s probably happy he is at work most of the day. I bet they are a sad story together..
He coughs a lot too. I don’t like that either. We don’t talk much.
So the other day, after getting FED UP with him using my stapler, I hid it in my drawer. Haha :) He doesn’t know where it is! One day, it was just gone from his life, hehe. I don’t know if he knows I hid it, or whether he thinks it just disappeared. I bet he misses it though. I know for a fact that it doesn’t miss him!
So now he uses my other co-worker's stapler. Hehe. Now she has to deal with him taking all her staples and NEVER refilling.
The only slight problem is that when I need to staple something, I need to wait until he is away so he doesn’t see me get the stapler out from my drawer.. A bit petty, but still makes for a funny story.
