Our office halloween picture was rejected by human resources. I'm trying to figure out how to upload it so you animals can judge.

    We were the 2-time defending halloween contest champions. Our dynasty is over.

    I have no idea why, but for some reason I'm reminded me of this:

    I'm not shocked that HR was not cool with this.

    By the way, the guy wearing the fedora is my office arch nemesis. He always tries to make things more funnier and fails miserably. Case in point, we are supposed to be school girls and he wore a **** fedora and sunglasses like a freaking blues brother. Oh, and his name is Kevyn. Yes, with a Y.
  • seppalaseppala Senior Member Posts: 1,916 Senior Member
    You kid about the Y, yes?
  • HextallHextall Senior Member Posts: 9,520 Senior Member
    You think I'd joke about something like that? What is the matter with you?
  • seppalaseppala Senior Member Posts: 1,916 Senior Member
    I don't like him already.
  • seppalaseppala Senior Member Posts: 1,916 Senior Member
    Are his parents college professors?

    Also, super douchey move on the fedora and sunglasses.

    I'm not sure, I know his two brothers have PhD's and he's kind of the failure of the family (with his dual masters in engineering and German). He's also from near the town in NH that just had all the riots at pumpkin festival. Also, he's allergic to corn. I've often times had to go out to eat with him because we're out of town for sampling work (like in brooklyn), and our choices are limited because of this stupid corn allergy (i.e. anything with corn syrup in it, which is every **** thing).

    One time, we were out to dinner, and he ordered a nut loaf. I have no idea what that is, but at one point he asked me if I wanted to try it and I said very loudly so everyone around us could here, "Do I look like a **** squirell? Of course I don't want to try that nut loaf." then I took a chicken wing, put the whole thing in my mouth and pulled out only the bone. This is mostly a true story.

    This Kevyn...

    Does he talk in a fake Southernese accent?
  • HextallHextall Senior Member Posts: 9,520 Senior Member
    He also smokes, and holds his cigarettes between his middle and ring finger.

    Seriously, how can we not hate him?!?
  • breamfisherbreamfisher Senior Member Posts: 4,969 Senior Member
    Anyone who orders a nut loaf probably wears Chacos...

    I wonder if HR hates him too thus your loss..

    Also... One day Kevyn started bringing all these office supplies into his office... reams of copy paper, boxes, bunch of stuff. A little while later, he announced that he's now going to work while standing (standing desk).

    He lasted a week, but left all his monitors on the boxes and such so that while sitting, he had to recline almost to 180 degrees to be able to look up at his monitors.

    Seriously, this is what happened.
  • seppalaseppala Senior Member Posts: 1,916 Senior Member
    I hate to Kevyn so **** much I am seeing red right now
  • HextallHextall Senior Member Posts: 9,520 Senior Member
    This is his bookshelf at work. He can only use neutrogenia sun screen.

    Holy hell. This guy is a grade A tool. I would bet you $1000 that he makes special orders at drive-throughs.
  • HextallHextall Senior Member Posts: 9,520 Senior Member
    sorry about the rotated photo, just flip your monitor 90 degrees.

    Also, Kevyn never comes into work on time, every day arriving at 10 am. about 2 out of 5 days, he'll actually send an email to the office saying he's goign to be late (but right on time for him). Some of the best ones were that his dog puked on his shoes, the upstairs neighbor's fish tank broke and flooded his kitchen, and that he got partway to work (about 30 minutes into a 45 minute drive), it started snowing so he turned around and went home.

    Often he'll come up with outrageous excuses to work from home because he asked and being junior, he was denied that privilege. So about once a week he also comes up with a fabulous excuse to work from home (our partner here in our office just ignores him now). Usually the excuse is that in order to save the 1.5 hours commutting time he is going to work from home. Of course this ignores that he could wake up earlier and be here earlier too.

    Last story before I go home: He told us that in high school his knickname was KY, because of his name. One of us said something to the effect of "and the lubricant." and he had no idea what we were talking about. then we postulated that KY was the other school kids making fun of him and he had no idea. Poor KY. Poor slippery KY.

    The reason he's my office enemy is because he is that type of guy that will ask you a question, then argue with the answer. When he first started, I was training him on the computer language we use here (IDL) and he was constantly arguing about what IDL could do. I no longer work with him and every week in our staff meeting he says that he has time to help out with projects, and nobody gives him work because it's enraging working with him.

    I'm going home now. Goodbye.

    This is my bookshelf as a reference point.

    Yes, that's the Walking Dead compendium number one on my shelf alongside such page turners as Water Chemistry and Environmental Chemodynamics.

    You need to show him up. Get one of these and you'll also be ready for MTB trails next season.

    I found these pictures difficult to **** to.

    Not impossible, just difficult.

    Great news, sports fans! My office won the group category again this year.

    I'd suggest that I couldn't have done it without you guys, but you were all worthless in helping with my victory. Suck it!

    What the hell are you talking about? I thought your picture was rejected?
