I am being absolutely driven nuts at work;  this mofo IMs me constantly asking me questions, then sends emails copying people asking the same question and asking me to answer.. after I answer in IM.

It's all quite obviously to make him seem like he's doing shit when I know he barely does anything;  long winded emails that are pointless spam mostly.

Well little does he know I can basically fire him lol, was asked just yesterday what I thought of him by the guy in charge of his contract who also thinks he's kind of full of shit.

He'd be gone already if he wasn't an onshore guy probably being paid pennies.

Yeah;  and it sucks because I like the guy on a personal level a lot, when I'm in town we go out to lunch and have a good time.

But I'm tasked with letting the client know how he is doing;  the threshold for him is "is he at least helping a little bit or more getting in the way?" and it's the latter right now.  I'd have gotten significantly more work done than the 2 of us combined this week if I wasn't dealing with him.

So you could clearly hear them, but didn't shout "hold on a sec, be right there" or something...?

The Japanese communard I live with has taken to no longer wearing pants or shorts around the joint, opting instead to wear what I would describe as panties that visually resemble the briefs you might have worn as a small child (white with colored edges and some kind of cartoon (anime?) characters in the white spaces).

I already feel ashamed eating junk food late at night and this isn't helping when I skulk into the kitchen. :snoop

Got a bunch of bad experiment results which means I can't submit to a conference tomorrow.
