Survey Questions About Office Etiquette

Monday was a holiday which meant I was all alone at the radio station for awhile, so I went ahead and ate a tuna fish sandwich, with my shoes off while clipping my nails and passing gas! NOT!




Here are ten questions from a recent survey on office etiquette . . .


 1.  Is it okay to play music without headphones in?  94% say it's unacceptable.  Only 6% of us are fine with it.


2.  Is it okay to eat really smelly food at your desk, like tuna?  63% say no.  37% say it's your lunch, so eat whatever you want, and they'll deal with the smell.


3.  Is it okay to take your shoes off at your desk?  56% say yes.  44% say no, never.


4.  How about clipping your nails at your desk?  93% say no.  7% say go for it.  They're probably assuming FINGERNAILS though, not toenails.  100% shouldn't do that.


5.  Is it okay to occasionally make personal phone calls at work?  51% say no.  49% say it's fine, as long as it's not all the time.


6.  Should you mute your cell phone, so it doesn't make noise all day when you get text messages?  75% say mute it.  25% don't care.


7.  Is putting your feet up on your desk acceptable?  82% say no, it's unprofessional.


8.  Is it ever okay to eat a coworker's food from the office fridge?  97% say NEVER.  3% say yes.


9.  Is it okay to PASS GAS in the office?  66% say hold it in or go somewhere else, like the bathroom.  34% say just let it rip.

Raising Children

Now this is a topic, I don't think there is a right way, or a wrong way. If you have just one child to raise or multiples, you would raise them somewhat differently. If the ages are spread a part, you again may raise them differently. Certainly if one child has special needs, you would raise them differently.
Then again, instilling basic fundamental steps is key.

Take the newly crowned Masters champion, Patrick Reed. He had his struggles growing up, like any child. Now let's fast-forward to his career as a professional golfer. Somewhere along the way he met his wife, who Mom & Dad dis not approve of. Reed playing the grandest golf tournament of all in his home state of Georgia had his wife by his side. His parents, no where to be seen. You see he has barred them from any tournament he plays.

This must be his way of "getting back" to the two who created him, brought him into this world. They raised him. Something went terribly wrong along the way.

Truth is, someda…

Are you a fubber?

Picked up on a new word today, FUBBER. Are you a fubber? What is fubber? Can I buy it at Wal-Mart, or Casey's? Is it available on Amazon? The answer to all those questions is hopefully, NO>

A fubber is a person. I'm sure you know one, are married to one, or work with one, or both. To be a FUBBER you are active scanning your cellphone, while in a conversation. As a person talks to you, you scroll through your messages or Facebook.

This denies the attention the person you're with deserves. It's rude, careless, and obnoxious.

Conclusion, don't be a FUBBER.  If someone is being a fubber to you, call them out on it. If what you're saying is important, grab the phone and keep it, until the conversation has concluded.

There's your tip of the day.
