When I was working at AT&T, I had my own office. One day someone knocked
on the open door and said, "I don't know if you realize this, but you're
singing the Barney song. I wouldn't have said anything, but you've been
singing it for like 20 minutes." God, how embarassing!

In my last job my cubicle was next to a guy's who had this habit of
whistling tunelessly while he worked, just two long notes alternating
with each other. Talk about wanting to smack somebody!
