Get to the point!

Dear Co-worker,
I have never met anyone else that speaks with so many clauses. You are adding so many extra sentences, tangents and asides to your original sentence that I've completely forgotten what you were talking about.

Making a spectacle

Co-worker- "I've had these glasses for two years without ruining them."

It's Not Slap Your Co-Worker Day

According to some reports, today is National Slap Your Irritating Co-worker Day.
In the light of my recent post about bullying in the workplace, I will be exercising restraint and mostly sitting on my hands.

Fortunately National Slap Your Irritating Co-Worker Day is actually 23rd October. Don't worry, it's in the diary.

Harmless fun

FYI this blog is about gentle ribbing and harmless workplace banter.

We at Dear Coworker DO NOT IN ANY WAY endorse or condone gaslighting or any other form of bullying in the workplace, school, home or anywhere else.

Relationship counselling R not us.

Dear co-worker, so remind me. In the 20+ years we’ve been working together, when was the last time you had a girlfriend? 
Oh that’s right. Never. 
So tell me, what exactly qualifies you to comment on my relationship?

Don't make me laugh

Dear Co-worker,
I don't normally do schadenfreude (laughing at the misfortune of others) BUT you falling off your chair just now was F###ING HILARIOUS!
