    Lols (or Groans) of the Worldplace: The Too Loud Personal Talker

    Holy ****.

    Some people REALLY need to realize where they are, and what they're talking about, when on the phone in the office where everyone else is forced to hear it.

    Wow.

    :eek:

    I was just confirming a car reservation via an automated system. We have an open office environment, and the guy across from me was speaking so loudly on the phone that he actually sent my call to "cancel reservation". He needs to learn how to use his "inside voice".

    We've got a girl that nervously laughs at everything and she sounds like Fran Drecscher.

    :disgust:

    One ginormously fat dude here proceeded to tell everyone in a meeting about the rectal bleeding of his equally large wife.

    There were several dry heaves.

    Let me stand up for the loud talkers (well at least some of them). I lost most of the hearing in my left ear at a Clash/Who concert at Shea in 1982. Despite the fact that it's almost 30 years later, I still haven't compensated for the fact that I'm always talking a LOT louder than I think I am (the deafness thing). It's led to a lot of interesting situations where I think I'm saying things under my breath, or in a low voice to someone else, and everyone in the room can hear me. People either think I'm an A: total azzhole, B: an insensitive creep, or C: a dude with balls of steel who will say anything to anyone. But really, it's just D: deafness.

    what? No "E - all of the above"?

    And do you ever find yourself saying stuff about the neighborhood kids and your lawn?

    Nope. Cuz then I wouldn't be able to use the "I didn't hear you" defense with the ol' ball and chain.

    Life gives me lemons, I make lemonade.

    I work with one too. Only issue is he is a little ***** and goes off and whines to the boss that I made him upset. Complete lack of respect for other co-workers and a huge distraction. Like I said, a little *****.

    God that felt good.....
