For 12 years I had my own private office. Six months ago I started working for a new company and now I share an office with 2 other people. Admittedly, after 12 years on my own, I don't like sharing an office, but it is what it is. But these people are driving me crazy. They read and talk to themselves out loud. They're doing their work on the computer or whatever, and while they're working, they read or talk to themselves out loud. It drives me ****ing insane!! The two of them have been working together in the same office for a while, and apparently they've gotten used to it, or maybe talking to yourself out loud is SOP. Do you talk to yourself out loud when you're working? I don't, I keep it inside my head.

No. It is not normal, Mr. bogey.

Most likely, you have been magically transported to "Damn Land" while in your sleep.

Nah man, it sucks. I work with a bitch that talks OUT LOUD to herself. I don't mind the mumblers. I can tune that out with the tapping of keys, but she speaks to herself louder than I speak to other people.

Get yourself an iPod. The best alternative.

I tend to let expletives fly while I'm working.

We have one lady that does talk to herself all the time. The first time I pasted by her office I thought she was trying to talk to me.

I'm glad I have an office, alone, with a door, and a LOCK!

That's sucks. This has to be very annoying, especially if you don't have any other options for office space. Ear plugs or music are your two options.

I only wish it was porn. I think they talk out loud to convince each other they're actually working.

I like the iPod idea, very much. An excellent solution.

However, in "Damn Land", the office buildings are always burning down. You'll need to position yourself in front of the emergency exit.

She just walked back in the office, sat down and said "out loud" to herself, "okay, what's next, let's see"

if the shot goes in-and-out, will you scowl at your co-workers and scream that you were fouled?

It is a place that is not a whole lot of fun, that much I can tell you, Mr. bogey. Kind of like an alternate universe that God forgot.

Based on the description of your co-workers' behavior, I fear that you have been somehow sucked into "Damn Land" without your knowledge and against your will. Perhaps due to an allergic reaction to medication or the inappropriate use of some sort of sexual aid.

This thread could get really good if you continue to update us on your co-workers annoying antics. Keep them coming.

I have no allergies to medication, and I always read the directions. How does one escape "Damn Land"? Or am I doomed?

So ya got two clowns who like to hear themselves talk?

Well, as they say: If ya can't beat 'em, join 'em!

Yeah, that's right...begin talking to yourself just loud enough to let 'em hear ya.

Try these to get started:

"**** it!! If I hear a peep out of either of those two again today, I'm just gonna have to pull out Mr. Smithenwesson and let them hear how annoying he sounds!"

[Start this one in a different voice] "(Insert your own name here)! (Insert your own name here)! I can't take it anymore! There's not enough room in this body for all of us! [In your own voice] "Shut up, (insert fictitious name here)! I told you I'm working on it! [In another different voice] "Hey! Keep it down! I'm trying to communicate with the undead here!" (NOTE: The more voices and different subjects you can cover, the better this one gets!)

"Well, that takes care of that! Now what should I start on? Hmmmm... Try committing suicide? Naw, tried that already today. Shoot boogers across the room? Maybe later. Listen for awhile to hear what a couple of lame-a** morons are thinking? Hell no! I know! I'll hack into the system and screw up everybody's pay! That'll keep me busy for the rest of the day for sure!"

Rotsaruck!!

I know. Compared to cube land, I'm in a good place. I'm just having a hard time adjusting to sharing with out loud talkers after 12 years of being in my own office. I wish I could fart on demand. Every time they talked out loud, I could fart. Eventually they would relate talking out loud, to the smell of shit.

She's more subtle. The phone rings... softly, she says "who could that be" She needs to make a call... "I need to call him/her" Even more annoying, she reads back what she's typing, "even more annoying, she reads back what she's typing"

Ha...I'm not close enough to know if Rain Man talks to himself, but we do have one person who talks to himself frequently, one who only does the occasional "hmmm" out loud, and one who hums (like tunes) to herself pretty frequently. Luckily, I don't share an office or anything, so it doesn't bug me much.

I guess I'd say, based on my experience, it's relatively normal. Somewhat annoying, but normal.

Everybody where I work talks out loud. It's not really talking to yourself, just venting frustrations to promote solidarity and camaraderie with other associates. Maybe you should embrace it, or just stick your foot up her ass. One or the other.

I work in cubicle hell though. You don't get to have your own office until you make over like 110K. Even our big whig staff managers have cubicles, but they are just a little larger. It's gay
