LOL ... I’ve got somebody in the office who is a gossiper who takes frequent smoke breaks and looooooong lunch breaks, finds any excuse to avoid work, talks very loudly into the phone, bursts through closed doors and interrupts private, business-related conversations and throws public tantrums from time to time, cussing out her boss.

She’s annoying, but I deal with it by allowing her to be my own private episode of ‘The Office’ each day and get a laugh out of it.

The woman I share an office with, though, scares me. I really think she’s mentally unbalanced.

HEY, I thought I asked you not to talk about me on the internet.

Seriously, I am a people person, I love interaction with the public, but 5 years ago I was offered an opportunity that I financially could not pass up. It entails working out of my house. No coworkers (except those via email and telephone), no office politics, etc. I thought I would hate it. I found out instead that I absolutely love it! I don't miss any of those people you were talking about. And the coworkers that I do miss, I now get to see on my own time. Also my productivity has at least doubled. I wouldn't change it for the world.
