Workplace Zaniness

I once told Srini, Lynne, Shilpa and Vamsi that I only get angry when I'm programming. Looks like I'm not alone in venting my frustration during coding sessions:

Coworker 1 (petite, sweet Asian girl): Bangs mouse on desk, pounds keyboard and swears (I think) to the computer in Thai.

Coworker 2 (macho Italian guy): Gives the monitor the middle finger, mutters "fuck you! Fuuuuuuck youuuuu!" with a Brooklyn accent, followed by incomprehensible Italian swear words.

My response when faced with a frustrating bug is usually "fuck fuck fuck fuck," followed by "God damn it!!"
