Stupid Pet Peeves

Well I experienced something today I have never experienced in 25 years of management. I had to have a conversation with someone about how they were peeing in the toilet. The guy was standing at the urinal, with his hands on his hips, letting it just wave free in the breeze, and kind of spraying urine all over the place. I had to talk to him about keeping some control over his Free Willy so we didn't have to clean up puddles of urine all over, and let him know that if he was observed doing this again it might lead to disciplinary action. He said he has always peed like this to keep his hands clean. I told him that he can wash his hands but what he's doing makes it unsanitary for everyone else. He was maybe 40, 45 years old. I can't believe I had to have that conversation.

We had a meeting at my last job about how much toilet paper was being used in the women's room. The cleaning staff said it was an excessive amount. I thought that was the weirdest, but yours is worse.

Welp Mr. Won't touch his Willy to pee went to HR and complained that I spoke to him about this issue. The only other person in there at the time was my operations manager who was really more a witness. Luckily this is not my first rodeo and I went to HR about it right after it happened, so the ball was already rolling. My HR manager is a stud, so he just asked the guy, were you doing that. The guy stammered and spluttered but ultimately admitted it, to which the HR manager says don't do it again. This could get interesting.

Very smart of you to go to HR first.

People who feel the need to push a reset button 12 times in rapid succession on an HMI every single time they are about to restart their equipment.

So that's something close to 98% of people I work with.

This might be the stupidest one in here.
I hate it when I buy pizza for my family and they won't eat the crusts.

If it was free then I don't care but when I paid for it I feel like it's wasted money

I feel like it’s wasted food. I was raised not to waste food. My grandmother was 100% German and lived through WW2. She helped instill that belief in me. Our kids wouldn’t eat certain things like that or the crust on a bread but more recently I’ve insisted they eat it all. They’re old enough now.

My wife doesn't eat it and it bothers me. My daughter doesn't eat it either but that doesn't really bug me cause I'm always just happy to see her eat anything so when she eats the other part of the pizza I'm satisfied.

Just order thin crust. There is very little excess crust.

My wife is the crust eater in my family. She's happy to let everyone else eat the pizza and she eats all the crust.
