It's the endless repeating that gets me

Petty rants are petty. Anyway, the following has been my work-week.

Dear customers:
Yes, our employees are running late this week. Yes, we know.
Now look out the window. Have you looked? OK, good. Do you see the large amounts of snow, sludge, and ice? You do? OK, good.
Now, could you possibly connect the dots, and realize that we have some delays due to the roads being rather dangerous to drive at a normal speed on? Please?

Dear co-workers:
Yes, I know it sucks that you havenít gotten a copying machine set up over at your wing yet. I get it.
But could you please CLOSE THE FUCKING DOOR TO THE HALL, when you go to use the one in here?
You see me, sitting there in that huge room with just the one heater, asking you over and over again to please close the door behind you.
I tell you over and over again, Iím cold. Iím actually wearing my jacket indoors now.

Tl;dr: Little annoyances repeated grow fucking big.

You can no longer comment on this thread as it was closed due to no activity for a month.

At my work place, we put a sign (piece of paper that says, "Close the door behind you")... and yet, people still don't close it. We are losing heat or cool air because of this.

We have one on the door to the bathroom. It's small, and when someone takes a crap out there, they need to open the window and close the door behind them when leaving, to avoid the smell and cold getting everywhere.

This is just too difficult for some people.

A responsible employee would leave earlier to get to work due to ice and snow

Yeah, you don't get it. It's OK, I wasn't very clear: We send out staff to provide cleaning and personal care for elderly and disabled people.
Our staff drive from person to person during the day.
They can't start early enough to compensate, as that would mean they would have to yank the first person out of bed by 5am or earlier, and that's unacceptable, naturally.

Yes. But sometimes it can be hard to judge how much extra time is needed. Plus, there could be unexpected events on the road that would be impossible to know of before - especially in the beginning of winter.
