What stuck me as very weird about the list above is that many of the complainants were clearly psycho. "His aura is wrong"

I don't usually drink at lunch but some others do. Particularly if entertaining clients. I don't see how drinking a beer at lunch would impair your ability to complete your afternoon tasks. I think there is an implicit ok to drink a beer if the company president himself has 1 or 3 when you go out with him. We also have afternoon champagne toasts or social gatherings with beer around 2:00 or 3:00 if there is something special to celebrate (10 year anniversary at company, someone getting their professional license, etc). Different firm cultures I suppose. But clearly someone showing up to work drunk would be frowned upon and that employee would potentially be fired.

There was a co-worker I once had to work with that was so socially inept, that they gave him a private room down by the labs. Had it's own door and everything. Every now and again I needed to go in there for parts etc.

So one day I walked into that room, and was assulted by a stench so overpowering, I almost lost it on the floor. When I confronted the co-worker about it, he showed me the plate of raw garlic he had been eating in there for his "cold". Mind you the room has a closed door, and not a single window. I snapped at him pretty good after that.....

Years ago for short time worked for a defense contractor. The general manager used to say: wish people would drink stuff that smells, then after lunch I would know that they are drunk and not stupid.

* Employee's body is magnetic and keeps de-activating my magnetic access card.

Now that one is scary...

Without asking for breathing breaks first.

Well, at least the garlic kept the vampires away!

I was once told by a co-worker that I was too happy and had too many plants and nice decorations on my desk. Hey if I had to be stuck somewhere for 40 hours a week, it better be pretty and I better be having some kind of fun!
Thank god I don't have to worry about being in a cubicle farm anymore!
