Because of the giant hoo-ha that's gone on today, I have an enormous headache.

And because I have an enormous headache and a mountain of paperwork that has to get done in short order, there is a guy in the cube next to me re-decorating with a drill that keeps stripping out whatever it's drilling.

And the asshole is SINGING to himself.

I fucking hate humanity. HATE.

If I thought I could get away with it I would work from home exclusively. I see no problem with communicating with my users and 'internal clients' by email and SameTime IM. I get their work done just as effectively (moreso, in fact) at home as I do in the office. In fact, not having people wandering back and forth past my cube, coming up to my desk and blathering at me, or people in the cubes behind me holding little coffee klatches and impromptu meetings would make me more productive.

Yeah, that would be great, except for two things:

1. My boss gave notice. Her last day is the 27th. It's likely that I'll get her job, but it means that there's a mountain of handoff stuff that I have to be in the office for.

2. The Pirate works from home on Tuesdays, and I've found that I get much less done when he's working from home at the same time. Mostly because I feel self-conscious about doing the things that help me be productive, like putting on music, etc. When I'm at home, it's normal for me to keep up a running monologue about my internal state, and that's kind of nipped in the bud when there's someone else around.

Maybe that's the workaround. If Christopher Lowell in the next cube over there insists on singing, I get to mutter to myself about how much I hate people and how, since I don't believe in guns, I am going to take this place down with a stapler and a two-hole punch.

I talk to myself at work because a) I talk to myself as a matter of course and b) it is my sincerest hope people will think I'm bug fuck crazy and leave me alone.

I'm down with the not being able to work at home with other folks around. I've done it with Mike home and it's not as productive. I have to have music on and stuff spread out on the table in a certain way and all that (there's no way I can get work done up in the office, too much crap to distract me).

No you don't.
You love humanity.

It's PEOPLE you can't stand...
