HEADPHONES: SANITY SAVERS
GAAAAH. Since I got in to work this morning, my computer has been running at high speed like it's working on something, even when there are no programs open. Rebooting didn't help. I've called Help Desk and they're "sending a technician to take a look." ETA: NEVER, apparently. I've got my lovely, wonderful, super, fabulous, noise-muffling headphones on and the music cranked up to cover the sound.

For those in the know, repetitive noises drive me insane. Quickly. Anders says I consider TWO repeats of a noise repetitive (and I stand by that statement, actually). When I first started working at the advertising agency in Chicago, there was a girl at the desk next to me that sat and tapped her pen on the desk when she was on the phone. Which was all the time. I threw paper clips at her to make her stop.

Johan clicks pens when we're in meetings here. I throw things at him, too. It's SO annoying! As a major fidgeter myself, I totally understand the impulse, but geez louise, if I could learn to get it under control and stop annoying people, why can't the rest of the world?!

Oh my god, I'm ranting! ba ha!

That's what happens when I have to listen to repetitive noise for an HOUR AND A HALF. My head is spinning around and should fly right off any minute now.

Another fun thing about my headphones: I sound like Darth Vader to myself. :D Luuuuuuuke. I am your faaaahhhhtthhheeeer.

Hey another thing we have in common! I get like a dog listening to an Ambulance, repetitive noises freak me completely. Even songs that go over and over annoy me and I find I can't concentrate or get ready to go out or anything with them on - really taking it to the limit :)

....jiggling legs and squeaking the chairs...

Yup, that's annoying. Enough to make your teeth grind. Maybe you could wear the headphones to the meeting to make your point?

Oh, I've made my point, believe me! :) Half the time now when they do it, it's ON PURPOSE to get a reaction. argh

Oh Lord, it's a good thing we live in different kommuns then, because I have chronic bronchitis and my husband tells me I have this constant small cough that takes some getting used to. You'd probably strangle me about 5 minutes into our friendship IRL.

LOL! Actually, it's not that sort of thing that usually gets me. It's the avoidable stuff: humming, buzzing noises; rhythmic tapping, for example, pen clicking is the worst! :D

Hehe - pen clickers... Reminds me of that Simpsons episode with Bart and Homer: "Race you." clickclickclickclickclickclickclick... hehehe... :)

I have the same problem with earplugs. Drives me insane, especially if I'm using them to fall asleep.
