Nicholas DiLoreto and Kort Neumann worked in the car industry before finding their true passion in product design. Which is surely why the 0Hundred Watch looks like it could very well go from zero to one hundred.
LOL, HILARIOUS.........NOW EVENTHOUGH THIS IS FUNNY AND ALL, THERE'S STILL SOME TRUTH TO THIS. THESE STEREOTYPES STILL EXIST AND PEOPLE ARE STILL VERY IGNORANT AND REFUSE TO DO ANY KIND OF RESEARCH THAT WOULD ENABLE THEM TO UNDERSTAND THINGS FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.
A great coworker can help you look forward to going to work each day. An annoying coworker, on the other hand, can make you want to hide under the covers.
A large survey by the staffing firm Ranstad USA asked employees what their biggest office peeves were. It turns out they all involved coworkers. Annoying ones.
Do you recognize any of the top six most annoying coworker types?
The Psst-er: Gossipers were the number one pet peeve in the survey. While some people like to hear juicy tidbits about the boss or their colleagues, too much gossip can undermine the spirit of the workplace. Plus you're always wondering when the Psst-er will make you the topic du jour.
The Broken Clock: These coworkers stink at time management. They're routinely late for everything, including work. They tend to spend too much time on emails, take long lunches, and then scramble to get others to help them meet their deadlines, which, for some reason, they keep missing.
Mold Guy: Coworkers who mess up communal spaces were third on the list of workplace pet peeves. Their month-old leftovers sport a thick layer of fur in the company fridge. Every office seems to have at least one who stinks up shared spaces.
The Whiffy Wonder: You can smell these coworkers wafting about from the other end of the office. They just wear too much perfume or cologne. Some have an obsession with Obsession. Others feel the need to douse themselves with Old Spice. And hiding in your cubicle won't make the overpowering smell go away.
The Cracker: Crackers are loud. They crack loud jokes, they crack their knuckles, they crackle their chewing gum, they clank spoons in coffee cups like they're calling the cows to come in from the fields. People who work near crackers can find themselves ready to crack.
The Tapper: Tappers are generally quieter than Crackers. But that doesn't make them any less annoying when they're tap-tap-tapping on their personal communication devices during meetings. It's distracting, rude, and yes, just plain annoying!
A frustrated Allen Iverson(notes) has left the Memphis Grizzlies and is not expected to return anytime soon, if at all, a source close to the situation told Yahoo! Sports on Saturday.
The Grizzlies granted Iverson a leave of absence to allow him to return to his offseason home in Atlanta. The source said Iverson wants to clear his head and is extremely unhappy about the lack of communication with Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins over his playing time and role with the team.
Grizzlies officials said Iverson was allowed to leave the team so he could attend to a personal matter. The decision came after he met with Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley Saturday morning in Los Angeles.
“I’m not going to get into the personal reason but it has nothing to do with the other stuff,” Heisley told the Memphis Commerical Appeal, which first reported Iverson’s departure on Saturday. “I’m the guy who said he could go. It’s a real family issue that I don’t think should be reported.” More From Marc J. Spears
* Iverson Q&A: Free agency was 'horrible' Nov 6, 2009 * Frustration grows for Grizzlies, Iverson Nov 5, 2009
While it is true Iverson is attending to a personal issue, his problems with the Grizzlies also factored greatly into his decision to leave. Team sources told Yahoo! Sports that Iverson did not ask the Grizzlies to waive him, but there was no timetable for his return.
The Grizzlies are debating whether it’s better to simply waive Iverson to salvage the team’s chemistry or attempt to bring him back.
“He has to hit rock bottom,” one NBA executive familiar with Iverson said. “He doesn’t have the capacity to change.”
Iverson has done nothing to hide his frustration after he returned from a hamstring injury this week and was relegated to coming off the bench. A source with knowledge of Iverson’s thinking said he “probably wasn’t coming back.”
The Grizzlies signed Iverson to a one-year, $3 million contract and would owe him the full amount if they were to waive him without reaching a buyout agreement. Given that Iverson also had problems accepting a reserve role with the Detroit Pistons last season – and that Memphis was the only franchise to show serious interest in him over the summer – it’s unlikely any team would claim him off waivers if the Grizzlies let him go.
Iverson debuted for the Grizzlies on Monday in Sacramento after missing all the preseason and the season’s first three games with a hamstring injury. The Grizzlies lost to the Kings in overtime, and Iverson immediately questioned his limited role after the game. He also criticized his teammates for not noticing he was open on the final possession of regulation.
“I’m not a reserve basketball player,” Iverson said. “I’ve never been a reserve all my life and I’m not going to start looking at myself as a reserve.”
Iverson made similar comments two nights later after the Grizzlies lost to the Golden State Warriors. After Friday’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, he told reporters that he was concerned that his relationship with Hollins was already off to a bad start.
In an interview with Yahoo! Sports early last week Iverson said he could envision the end of his career.
“I definitely can see myself walking away from basketball, walking away from [the media],” Iverson said.
During the interview, Iverson described his free-agent experience over the summer as “horrible.” He also complained that many people had begun to doubt he could still play at a high level.
“There’s more [people] that would rather see me fail than succeed,” Iverson said. “You think I don’t know that people left me for dead?”
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ''EAZY''. HE NEEDS TO HUMBLE HIMSELF AND HELP THESE OTHER YOUNG PLAYERS ON HIS TEAM (THE MEMPHIS GRIZZLES) DEVELOP. I MEAN WHAT ELSE CAN HE DO AT THIS POINT, HE'S BEEN SCORING CHAMP, ALL STAR GAME MVP, NBA SEASON MVP, I COULD GO ON AND ON, THE ONLY THING HE DOESN'T HAVE IS A SHIP. BUT IF HE FORCES HIS HAND, IT WON'T HAPPEN. BE PATIENT A.I AND PLAY THE CARDS YOU'VE BEEN DEALT AND LETS'SEE WHAT HAPPENS BRO. I SAY GET BACK TO THE GRIZZLES A.S.A.P AND FULFFIL YOUR COMMITMENT.
