Psychological warfare in Engineer Alley

Orson Wells once observed that, "Gluttony is not a private sin."

...neither is compulsive bubble-wrap popping.

Who in the hell can just pop only one or two bubbles every five or ten minutes or so? The answer is, Sergey, the amiable Russian software engineer whose cube abuts mine. I don't know whether to laugh or lob chunks of electrostatic foam over the cube wall at him.

You think thats bad. I got in a screaming match with a co-worker yesterday.


Got your email-- I hope to respond later in the day.

Interesting. I can't imagine it.

Your voice is much too lovely for screaming. Heh heh, you always said those fine jewelry hags were harpies. Never wrestle with pigs: it wastes your time, you get all muddy, and the pigs like it. You're such an easy-going and friendly person, Muse; whatever could they have done to raise your dander?

And doing both is not possible? Laugh WHILE chucking electrostatic foam at him! Fun for all!

Besides, maybe he's a recovering compulsive bubble-wrap popper, and he's taking it in low dosages? Ya never know...

Maybe I should get a watergun and switch his regimen to aversion therapy!

Tennis balls, dude. TENNIS BALLS are the way to go. (You read Sluggy Freelance, right?)

I know what you mean. Tennis balls would be safer than water around all that electrical equipment, anyway!
