Let me try to draw you a picture here, a very small clear picture. You see, since we moved to our new place, a lot of employees have been switching their desks and moving from here to there, and just recently, another department moved to the partitions infront of me. So far so good yeah? Well it gets worse…
The thing is, this guy (oh i hope your reading this) hums all the time!! And i mean ALL the time. He literally starts his day by putting his ass on his chair and starts humming, sometimes its load enough that you can’t even ignore it. It’s not like he’s humming a song! No no, it’s just like hmmmmm hhmmmmm hmm hmmmmm hmm all day long! He does stop every now and then, but I’d like to think that he stopped cuz he’s probably busy picking his nose.
My colleague who’s sitting next to me is facing a harder time i guess, she sits in the desk right in front of him which makes it worse with the echo of his humming. But it looks like that she found a way to get out of it by using her iPod and listening to music. Well even if i try to do that, i don’t think i would wana use my iPod all day long. I have tried saying some loud comments with my colleagues, maybe he would get the hint, but nothing, he’s so determined.
So i took a step forward on this matter, i headed to HR and asked them what should i do! i thought they would offer the help and do it themselves, which would cost less embarrassment, but they didn’t, and they gave me the authority to do it myself, that’s to ask him to shut the fuck up. I still didn’t as am trying to be patient, but i donno how long that will take.
So the question is, why do people hum and what’s so fun about it?? Do you think i should do something about this? Lemme know.
