OMFG I’ve got a whistler in my office too!! Sucha grotesque display of a lack of awareness for others, goddammit.
Then i remind myself, the first place I wokred (out of college) at 6yrs ago, I sat 4 ft from this shitbag that would either be:
A. Chewing ice
B. Chewing gum
C. WHISTLING…but not a confident robust whistle, more like an old air vent that makes a whistling noise.
At that job i had to work the 8hrs, plus a forced hour lunch. And we couldn’t wear head phones.
Now I work maybe 8hrs a day total, make much more money, and I get to wear the big obnoxious looking noise canceling headphones.
Whenever I wear a whistler, it makes me want to start whisting (match their pitch lol) just to weez their gig. They do it like it’s their gift to anyone within 20ft of them, like they are some musical saint here to upgrade your day with a nice tune. All I can think of is CURB STOMPING their mouths in order to deform it so they can never whistle again.
I am smarter than I once was, and I’ve worked hard to make sure the guy in my office doesn’t know I don’t like it. I don’t want to give him a mechanism to piss me off, a button if you will…it’s worked out too, he gave me a sweet mesh hat that he got a as a promo from a vendor.
