They should be F**king OUTLAWED in cube farms!

That which does not kill you has made a tactical error.

There is no "overkill".  There is only "Open Fire" and "Time to Reload!"

LARGE SIGNS should not need to be posted reminding cube-dwellers that they have neighbors who also have work they're trying to do. And if everyone did their calling on speakerphone at the same time, then the resulting cacophony would be everyone's just desserts!

F**king INCONSIDERATE BASTARDS!

Do you get the idea I agree with you on this one?

When I posted this I was simultaneously listening to four managers on three conference calls!

Annual employee survey is next week and I'll have some polite but direct comments for them to chew on.

I just came up with a really obnoxious idea...

In the biulding where I work, the voip server that handles all the conference calls is in my [security] office, which doubles as fire command, et al. The PA system is also controlled from my office and is located next to the voip server...

I don't think Mark needs the idiot managers to make their conference calls EVEN WORSE.

I think the worst is when you are in a store and someone comes up and seemingly is talking to you, when you acknowledge, it is someone on a bluetooth. That is annoying and potentially embarrassing.

Unless they are actually tapping me on the shoulder or gesturing wildly I tend to ignore everyone in public.

Unless, of course, they park their damn shopping cart right in the middle of the aisle. But that's a rant for another day.

Still no need to say anything. Just push the cart down the aisle untill you can get by. Its surprising how many people dont even notice untill they go to put something in it.

Having seen a video (Thanks dave and CAH) I now understand why she said that.
