oh that thing you do

We all have them. Those tiny little things that people do that just absolutely fucking drive us nuts. And there's no explaining, really, where they come from. They just are. Like the Buddha. Well, one of mine is the sound of people chewing. Especially crunchy things like potato chips.

Guess what my boss just did?

Yeah. In my cube, standing behind me while reviewing the brochure from hell that I've been working on since I started here. And I couldn't say, 'Dude. Stop that right now or I'm gonna throw up on your shoes.'

'Cause, you know, he's my boss and all.

Ten minutes later and my teeth are still on edge.
