Anyone who introduces themselves as a "thought leader" is not .
Raising your voice and not listening to other people's concerns doesn't mean your plan is any less certain to fail.
Next time you forward me an article to read, maybe put a note about WHY you think I should read it.
Why even bother asking us how long it takes when you just make up your own schedule anyways?
I swear if that guy tries to shift blame on us again, I'm downloading his resume and leaving it in the print tray his boss uses.
The account director seems to think our IT can do something to speed up her iPhone 5S delivery, even though it's not a company phone.
I know you think it's fun to chat everyone up, but it's decidedly less fun when you hold the meeting at noon and don't provide food.
Calm down! The fact that your instructions are confusing and even contradict each other is not MY fault.
How the boss is like my parent's dog.

If you're on LinkedIn on Sunday morning and you're not looking for a job, just know that the rest of us hate you.

This is what it's come to-- you have to ask to leave at 5:00, even on Friday. Otherwise at 6:30 you get a nasty email asking where you are.
I endorse punching anyone who introduces themselves as an “entrepreneur”: managementtoday.co.uk/news/1212787/

Next time before you kick off a project with production, maybe you should try to figure out what exactly you want to produce.
Designer tip: not showering is an effective way to keep people from hovering around your monitor.
Oh, great, another conference call with the client team that thinks they're "fun". Yeah, they're fun like the Morning Zoo is fun.
Important people don't walk around talking about all the "really high-level" things they have to do, but SELF-IMPORTANT people sure do.
As someone who works in advertising, I'm dubious of this #RobinWilliamsIsCrazy
show being anything like what we do.
I've notice that when the boss signs someone up for a webinar, he always adds "c'mon, it won't be so bad."

Coworker just vomited during this 3-hour meeting. Wish I'd thought of that.
No, a backup plan is another way to get it done, not a way to shift the blame.
After spending the day working in PowerPoint, I started wishing for a meeting to break the monotony (with a different monotony).
At least Ted Cruz didn't resort to PowerPoint like John Boehner did in 2011: slideshare.net/MeetingBoy/how…
The client keeps saying we need to measure using "absolute signs of success". It's the one thing she hasn't made an acronym for.
Oh, God! Not another acronym. It's too early in the morning for this.
One of the production guys quit today, and when asked why, he said he'd been "one-more-thing-ed to death."
It's amazing how many people I've never met include me on their "I'll be out of the office tomorrow" notices.
I'll bet Satan lists "expert in PowerPoint" on his resume too.
I'm so glad we spent all this money so there's no static on conference call lines. Now can you get rid of the lazy idiots on the line?
Calling the conference call a success on the basis that it had no agenda is the perfect example of everything that's wrong with this place.
Everyone is anxious for the office internet connection to come back up, though probably not to do work.
I'm glad my coworker who never clears paper jams had time to print out 27 prayers to adorn his cubicle with.
If you berate a junior staffer for not having coffee at a meeting, when Dunkin Donuts is just downstairs, you need a vacation.
The office internet is down, but the boss says he doesn't want us sitting around doing nothing, even though our jobs are dependent on it.
People at work are upset because the FAX MACHINE isn't working and I can totally sympathize with their concern about 10 years ago.
You don't need to use all 60 minutes. This is a conference call, not a radio show.
YOU made us start before you had approval, so you don't get to complain that's it's overbudget after we made all the client's changes.

The problem with joining the office fanatsy football league is the 45 work emails I get on Sundays now.
Today one of our executives referred to the internet as "the information superhighway", and sadly, was not making a joke.
To review: You didn't follow my instructions and it didn't work. Do you even listen to how stupid you sound?
Think Before You Scream.

: Why thank you for looking to me to tell you why you called this meeting.
I said I don't have time for your sales pitch, so why are you still trying to keep me on the phone?!
The flirting between our account director and the client on this conference call is so thick that it's making the rest of us uncomfortable.
