New highs for office etiquette everywhere

My cubicle neighbour is clipping his finger(I hope) nails. Not only that I think he is using a megaphone to transmit the clipping noise.

Help!

Nail clipping seems to be very popular in my office too, although there are certain other persistent quirks that might drive me crazy first. :)

Whatever happened to old-fashioned nail-biting?

Samantha said...

LOL and a bit yuck too.

go tell him/her to save them, cause you know someone who uses them to pick their teeth with. A natural kind of dental floss.



Never will I be out-grossed

I am the Queen-of- gross.

All bow.

oh, to lorraine You must not bite them cause you could get worms.............pinworms...........they live in your bum.

Ha ha I will never stop. I am the champion

The guy in the office down the hall does it all the time. He must have some freaky disorder that makes his nails grow fast because it seems like he does it every damn day. Drives me more batty.

If I'm a-gonna get pin worms from biting my nails, then surely I'm fully infested by now. Come and get me you pinny little worms, you! Aren't you supposed to be selling yarn or something, Denny?

Speaking of which, see you's tonight at Lettuce. I've got my carders and I plan to hog Emma all to myself. Also I want my cookies back. I smell even worse than last time. I won't be offended if people avoid me. Maybe it's the worms they'll be worried about...

If a gal gave another gal her ipod could that gal's manboy put music from a sensitive friday blog thang?
Cause the gal who owns the ipod is stunned,but wants music. Am willing to bake pies.

There's a guy at my office that liked to clip his nails too. Everyone was disgusted, so one day, we took the clippers off his desk and hid them. When he bought a new pair, we hid those too. It was pretty funny to hear him freak about his precious clippies. He did get the picture though...
