We all seem to have one of those people in our lives that just can’t be quiet. That just can’t stand the silence. That have to verbalize every thought they have ever had ever. No matter how stupid. The co-worker next door neighbor that has to express every feeling and every emotion after every call no matter how sarcastically you’ve told them how little you care. You might even fake a full on nap just to ignore them in the hopes that they will stop. There is a reason they call it noise pollution, because so little of those words are necessary or good for you, just like pollution.
They tell you everything they did that weekend and talk about every mundane detail of their horribly boring lives. And when there is a silent moment at work when you actually feel like working, they have to say something just because the deafening sound of silence is to them what noise is to the rest of us. There is one upside though. I’m writing all these bitter things about him right now as he is uselessly jawing about nothing as we speak. So this is my bitter passive aggressive revenge. His name is Craig and his phone number is 1-800-867-5309. Please call him at home on the weekend and ask his mom if he can come over to play, or prank him with many fresh fish deliveries or at least a lot of fish tacos. Be creative. Use your favorite pranks or come up with a new one. Either way, do this for all the introverts or bitter people out there who just want some freaking silence at work, SO THEY CAN WRITE A FREAKING BLOG IN PEACE WITHOUT BEING INTERRUPTED BY NEIGHBORS AND WORK!
