        What about your workplace drives you crazy? How do you deal?

Ooooh, a visual poem. :) I hate cleaning up other people's messes, which is what I'm doing right now. I deal with this by putting details about how much work it was in my updates so I look good. :)

God, you're so ingenious, Adelaide. I loved the wild form of your shredder poem. I just am insane for shredders . . . except when I make a mistake and shred the wrong thing.
Although I'm retired, the most vexing part of my day in our Cafe used to be the time-line schedule where some invisible Gestapo was standing by with a stop watch . . . clocking the minutes till closing and every single step we had to go through till that clock struck 6:00 and we locked the door. Whew! Much cooler now!

the customers & management. i deal by ignoring them or telling them off.

"this job would be great if it weren't for the fucking customers"

Yeah i really like the visuals of this poem. The way the r's are scattered, it's very eye catching and artistic.

Hmmm what annoys me at work are people who print everything, even when they don't need to. There is a slot for unclaimed printouts, and it's usually really full. What a waste of paper and ink. I also hate annoying kiss-asses. They come off fake and you can tell they're putting on a show to further their career. I look at those people and thank myself for not ever doing that.

I don't think you needed a visual to go with this one sister!! It's already visually stimulating.
