In trying to keep this blog light, and have a sense of variety.. I must vent a little.

I work with a "whistler". What's a whistler? It is someone who whistle's non-stop to various tunes through out the day. All of the tunes are annoying songs that get stuck in your head and won't go away.

Let me give you some background...

I work in a VERY quiet office. Meaning, there could be hours where not a word is said between anyone. No music. Nothing. It's all very strange in and of it's self, but that's a whole other post. But, since our office is so quiet, you can hear people a mile away... (let me tell you there are 13 people in the office.. two in the same room as me).

But the whistler is in the other room!! And it goes on ALL day if there is nothing to be discussed work wise. I am not even sure he is aware that he's doing it. And let me also say that, I can tolerate a lot of "stuff". I live with a person (love you G!) that can't sit still for a minute. He constantly has a foot shakin' or singin' or even whistling! And I know sometimes it's totally involuntary, his mouth just has to be moving. So while I can put up with a lot of "noise", this drives me insane!! Everyday I just want to shout out "SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE WHISTLER!!" Not that I wouldn't prefer our office to have a little more noise, but whistling ain't it.

I think its just that it's soo quiet, and that's the only noise, and they are songs you don't ever want in your head. Today I think I even heard a xmas tune! Really?!?

  1. I don't know any whistlers, however I work at several clients where no one speaks. There's no music, nothing. It's too quiet for me to work sometimes! I started listening to my ipod. I usually only have one earphone in so I can hear if anyone should happen to speak to me.

    The quiet just kills me some days. Plus, if I have a really tedious task to get through, putting hard rock on scream in my ear helps.

    Maybe it's because we grew up in a family where who ever is the loudest wins?? :-)
