FCOOs: Five Common Office Observations

I find the following 5 actions surprising, interesting, and somewhat stupid*:

1- When you hand someone a printed document and immediately ask you before looking at it"what is this?"!!
 hummm...a printed document that explains what it is?

2- When someone yells "hey, I just sent you an email"!!
I mean, what's the point of an email? seriously think about it!

3- When someone come to you and ask you about something YOU'VE ALREADY E-MAILED long time ago!!
In this case you probably forgot to yell "hey, I just sent you an email"! your bad!

4- When people print and do on paper what they could've done on their computers!!
I don't get it! is it more fulfilling to write on papers and then type it in again?

5- Every time someone asks for someone's phone extension out loud waiting for the magical 3 numbers to come from the back of the office! even though everybody has the extensions list either printed,in their emails, or both!

What are your FCOOs?

*if you do one of the mentioned above,don't take personally, I don't think you're stupid, I just think what you do is stupid that's all.and the cute bunny up there isn't for you,because stupid is as stupid does...

Apparently in your office people have issues with e-mails and paper printings :)
So far there are no COOs in the company I work for and I really hope things will stay that way :)

Well you need to have colleagues in the office to have observations like these :(

مش هاي إللي بسمّوها الأسئلة الهبلة
يعني مثلاً لما تكون داخل على مكان ما
وأواعيك منقوعين مي بقوم واحد بسألك:
الدنيا بتشتي؟؟؟؟
أو لما تصحى من النوم:
إنتَ صحيت؟؟؟؟
وأحلى شي لما حد يسألك:
إنتَ نايم ؟!؟!؟!؟!؟!؟!؟

وهلم جرا
يا هل ترا
