    I work in an office where a majority of my coworkers are not white and attempt to justify the wrong doings of people participating in illegal activities. I should put pictures of the whitest, most republican people in our nation's history up at my desk. I guarantee that nobody would even think of speaking to me.

    That sounds frighteningly reminiscent of my job. You're supposed to be sitting at your workstation with your headphones on, monitoring calls. You're not supposed to engage in "side-chats" with neighboring employees at the same time, yet most of my co-workers do just that. And while there have been times where I've been guilty of this, many of my coworkers are far more extreme. There have been a few times where it was very difficult for me to hear the callers due to side-chats, yet every time I've told my coworkers to quiet down, they respond with "just turn your headphones up". And I explain to them that either a) my headphones are already turned all the way up, or b) I have to turn the volume up to uncomfortable levels. And they NEVER RESPECT ME. One girl even suggested that I had a personal problem. :mad: :mad: Most of the leads there don't really care, either (except for one).

    And now for something completely different: I managed to pull off the most pointless impossible achievement ever.

    I successfully printed from my 1-year old HP Elitebook 8570w to my 22-year-old HP Deskwriter printer. According to HP, the Deskwriter is Mac-only, and is not RS-232c compatible, yet I managed to print from my PC over an RS-232 connection to the Deskwriter using a homemade DB-9 to Mini-DIN8 adapter and the built-in Deskjet 500 driver in Windows 7.

    I dare anybody to come up with an even more pointless impossible achievement.
