I know this has been done to death, but I just need to vent.
I don’t give two shits if people think I’m a little bit strange for getting up at 5:30 every morning to work out and eating healthy most of the time. I’m not a big guy (though I’d like to change that) and, as we all know, most people think all it takes is the juice to get big, so what’s the point of all this dedication?
But that’s not what I want to vent about. I want to bitch about a coworker of mine.
He comes in every morning – EVERY morning – with a McDonald’s breakfast. Drinks regular soda, not diet. Eats like shit all day long. Shudders in revulsion when he sees me drinking a protein shake. From what he tells me, he’s often up till 2 or 3 in the morning watching TV or fucking around on the computer, yet comes in to work by 9 every morning. Quality sleep, there…
I ask this guy, “Why do you have McDonalds every morning? What about something a little healthier? You KNOW that’s bad for you in such amounts, right?” He doesn’t seem to see the problem.
Every time he stands in front of my desk to talk to me, he has the nice gut spilling over his pants, big ass, and nice little man boobs going on. They’re not large yet, by any stretch of the imagination, but they’re noticable.
I’m 29 and he’s 28, yet he looks like he’s in his early 30s, easily. I tend to look about 26 if my head’s freshly shaved.
I bet he wonders why I look younger. I bet he wonders why he has those moobs. I don’t bother to educate him.
I’m just curious to hear what other people encounter at work. What drives you up the wall, even though you’ve come to expect it?
