The Office Pet Peeves Tournament Part 3

Posted by Andy Dunscombe on Apr 3, 2015 1:28:00 PM

We are through the first two rounds of Hiregy's Office Pet Peeve Tournament! The competition has been fierce, and we are down to our final four. A quick recap:

In Part 1, tournament favorite Fridge Thievery won in a landslide against plucky upstart, and this author's personal office pet peeve, Wrong Time on the Microwave. The other matchup saw Dirty Microwave prevailing over Empty Water Jug. 

Part 2 was full of upsets, with Thermostat Teeter-Totter squeaking out a win verse What's Wrong With the Printer and, in the tournament's biggest surprise, Heavy on the Scent drubbed Empty Coffee Pot. 

Let's get into the voting on our final four office pet peeves.

The Office Pet Peeves Tournament Part 2

Posted by Andy Dunscombe on Mar 27, 2015 10:19:00 AM

We are now in the second bracket of our Office Pet Peeves tournament. Last week we voted on Fridge Thievery vs. Wrong Time on the Microwave and Dirty Microwave vs. Empty Water Jug. Before we get to the next set of matchups, a few words on last week's voting. Fridge Thievery (defined as lunches getting stolen from the break room fridge) was expected to win in a landslide, and as of this writing it is up 38 to 3. This tells me that most people view Fridge Thievery as way worse than any office pet peeve, which is to be expected. It also tells me that there are 3 people running around in some office somewhere who do not think it is much of a problem to steal their coworker's ham and swiss sandwich. Please be on the lookout for these folks.

We are full swing into March Madness mode. While a good percentage of the country is focused on the basketball tournament, we here at Hiregy put together a bracket system of our own to crown the champion of Office Pet Peeves. You may not be able to help your basketball team win the tournament (no matter how loud you scream "Rock Chalk Jayhawk!" from your couch) but you will be able to help choose your favorite (er, least favorite) office pet peeve.
