Format: Paperback
Do you get those emails about the silly things that people do at work? Basically this is a book that collects silly things that people do at work.

The book is set up with one page anecdotes. Some of them I found funny, some left me rolling my eyes, some did not effect me. To me, the best of this book come from company memos, but there are also a lot of the "a customer calls the help line and asks how to determine if a mouse pad is compatible with his computer." A lot of it is silly things that I've seen before.

On the plus side the book is an easy read and did provide me with several smiles and a few laughs.

A chore to read, surprisingly; and the author's unfunny comments after the entries usually only help to kill the joke further. Not one of the better compilations out there. You may want to try Ross & Kathryn Petras' 'The Lexicon of Stupidity' instead.

A hilarious look at the "intelligence" of the some of the people in the workforce. How they stay employed is a mystery to all of us. In reading this book, you will invariably say, "I know that person," or "I have worked with that person."

It never ceases to amaze me just how inept government departments can get and go in their lengths to demonstrate their stupidity.

This book wasn't as funny as it says.
I sent it on to my cousin who said the same.
Find a Jeff Foxworthy book and actually have a good laugh.

I suppose I expected it to be filled with comedic stories and have very little humor thus far. Hope it livens up soon.

If you work with the public like I do you will encounter a few of these kind of people, in and out of the work place. Love the book and if you want to just shake your head at stupid people or just plan laugh this is the book for you.
