Total weirdness

A fellow co-worker just complained that I stir my coffee to loudly.



In today's world this is the best that can thought up?

I think I'd have been upset if I'd cared, but currently I just feel confused.

Stir a coffee to loudly? That's kind of funny actually. If someone would of said that to me I probably would of burst out laughing.

Like mrmom2 mentioned, your coworker obviously has no life if he or she can pay attention to that much detail. Either that or your coworker is stalking you and just giving you tips on how to improve.

I am having the views of mrmom2. He or She must be jealous of you.You can take it positively by thinking that you are getting tips on how to improve yourself .

I worked with a guy like that, but he was a devout Pentecostal - So I knew he had no life.

If you stop stirring your coffee so loudly you will be a perfect person! Look at it that way.

A perfect person? Then what would I do. I'd have nothing to work on or at. lol

It is. Isn't it? It took me about 20 min's to get over the shock. I laughed after

Yesterday I would have thought this too. Except that it happened and I was stunned. Floored. Awed even. I had no idea that something as mundane as coffee stiring could illicit such a response from someone.

I've experienced other weirdnesses. But this is the first time I've had somebody say I stirred coffee to loudly.

You got a point there. You never know how you will react to a situation unless you have already been through that situation before. Our mind does crazy things when put into a situation unprepared.

I actually made up a saying a while ago while in a car with a friend: "Thinking on the run". When ever I react unlike me I use the expression "I was thinking on the run".

I've had hangovers that were so bad that the noise from stirring my coffee was destroying the remainder of my sanity

oh. Missile. I think you may have hit the root of her problem! Maybe she had a hangover and that's why my coffee stirring upset her. I will have to ask her.

Hangover was my first thought too, Twila. I can think of nothing else that would make coffee stirring too loud.

Or she's just a total bitch. Either case seems plausible.

I think it was actually a case of her listening too well.

A good friend of mine is always complaining about these things. She gives people nicknames for that. "Oh look, there goes tick-tick" she says, because a girl from my study ticks with her pencil a lot. "Look, there's snuffy" - a girl who sniffs her nose a lot. " *sigh* There's miss Question 01 again" she groans and moans when a girl asks a question to a teacher - according to my friend, she is one out of three girls of my study who do that A LOT.

Maybe she should get a life as well I could tell her that. Don't know whether that is the most wise thing to do though.

What does she call you, Ricky?

Handsom, manly, intelligent man :P ... neh, don't know how she calls me ... should I be worried? (...) She did call me snuffy once. Couldn't help it. For the first time in 12 years I had had a bloody nose, and I was afraid to blow my nose in college ... I was afraid my nose would start to bleed instead ... but meanwhile, I had a cold and a running nose ... so you can imagine what happened .... *sniff sniff* ... pretty annoying I guess, thinkin' 'bout it :P

Do you have any nicknames, Rev, thinking about it?

I get called many things, Ricky...a lot of them less than flattering, oddly enough.

Nosebleeds are no fun at all. I had one when I was a kid that was soo bad the doctor decided to pack my nose with gauze. I ended up with blood coming out of my tear ducts.

There are few things more painful than when they pull the packing out of your nose, btw.

A friend of mine at school had a sneeze for 28 weeks - it sounds funny, and to us it was, but he had difficulty eating, sleeping etc. He had to go to a specialist clinic in Switzerland for treatment. I remember he was something of a minor celebrity at the time, although he can't have been all that famous, or I wouldn't have forgotten about until now.

blood coming out of your tear ducts? That must have been a severe nosebleed, to say the least!

I'm not sure, p., I was only a kid at the time, about 12 I think, so I would have been too busy laughing to bother with petty details like that. I think I know where to contact him, though, so I'll endeavour to find out.

I also had a bad nosebleed as a kid. Turns out it was a broken blood vessel and had to be cauterized. Not fun!
