My 10 minute walk to work felt like a 10 day trek in the Sahara.

the annoyingly funny part of the Mcarren pool is the loudspeaker system and recorded announcements they've got going.... you can hear the announcements from a mile away.

"NO RUNNING ON DECK. PLEASE WALK TO AVOID ACCIDENTS AND MISHAPS"

"DUE TO UNSANITARY CONDITIONS...MCCARREN POOL IS NOW CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE"

They went about it the wrong way though... they should just have a live MC on the mike spitting shit (like the guy who announces Rutger Park basketball games and gives funny/cool nicknames to players doing good as well as shaming the lame ducks).

"YA'LLS STOP RUNNING N' WRASSLIN - OR PO-PO BE UP IN HYEAR"

"HELL'S NO.... SOME MOTHERUCKER DOOKIED IN THE POOL?! EVERYONE OUT! UNLESS YOU LIKE SWIMMING IN FECES..."

"ITS NOT A WRINKLED SNICKERS BAR PEOPLE...ITS A DOOKIE... AND EVEN IF IT WAS A SNICKERS BAR YOU'D BE A FOOL TO EAT A CANDY BAR FLOATING IN A PUBLIC MOTHER FUCKING POOL."

People at work asking for information, when they don't really understand the information they are asking for. The most frrustrating situation.

Maybe it's not for them? A lot of the time that info is relayed to higher-ups, project managers, etc.

That is exactly what it is. The people they sent to get it are complete retards.

What is worse your situation or people barading you via email for information then when you give them what they want they call back and realize it was not what they really wanted and probably should have looked into it before asking...this happens to me weekly from the same person.

IMO this is worse. I'm at the point where I just know that I have to go back and make sure the person understands their request, and usually I solve most issues this way.

Usually what I do is ask, "what is it that you are attempting to accomplish?" Their response generally either leads me to knowing exactly what to help them with, or referring them to an entirely different department.

This is every day for me. Just the other day a person changed something and then sent an e-mail asking if the thing she changed still existed and why someone else had changed it. uhhhhh wut?

Or I'll pull together a request in Excel, get it all sweet and analytical ... and then spend the next 25 minutes hiding columns and rows, and formatting to make everything as blatantly clear and idiot proof as possible. I'm all for good formatting and and clarity, but sometimes the level I have to reduce things to is facepalm.gif
