I have a large screen I paid my entire bonus for (plus some). I've always wanted a 4K screen and finally have it.

People still touch it. And it's a bloody TV so it's very fragile compared to a monitor.

There really should be some computer etiquette training in school.

... wait until the last minute to drop a ton of work on your desk? It's especially fun when you have two minutes to get out the door unless you want to wait an hour for the next bus in the rain. Any idea how to make this video my wallpaper, full screen and no border?

At work? Yes, it's not my display, IT manages that 8-) but still, it icks me, especially my boss tends to do that. As long as he does that to his laptop, I'm fine :)

Better yet they walk to our office, ask about how long till we implement a new feature X, we tell them some realistic schedule like Y weeks of work. Then nothing happens for approximately Y weeks until someone pops in and tells us that we're starting a project Z that absolutely has to contain feature X and has to be delivered in less then Y weeks. All that time nobody tells us to start on X because we have a ton of other things to do.

No one touch my screens. Not even me, except for the weekly cleaning.
What is the problem at just pointing things without touching them ?

It's work. You've got to assert dominance in cowardly ways, or you'll never get ahead.

Fart loudly in a meeting, for example. That is management material.

Sleep with the boss's wife, or daughter, or both!

I count it as an accident if it's something I probably wouldn't have done sober. I've had a lot of accidents.
