What's the strangest question employers have been asked during an interview? Among the responses:* What is it you people do at this company?* Why aren't you in a more interesting business?* Will the company move my rock collection from California to Maryland?* Does you company have a policy regarding concealed weapons?--from Idiots at Work: Chronicles of Workplace StupiditWhat's the strangest question employers have been asked during an interview? Among the responses:* What is it you people do at this company?* Why aren't you in a more interesting business?* Will the company move my rock collection from California to Maryland?* Does you company have a policy regarding concealed weapons?--from Idiots at Work: Chronicles of Workplace StupidityLeland Gregory once thought crooks, politicians, and lawyers were the greatest nitwits out there, but it turns out that the working masses are packed with the dumb, dumber, and dumbest humans on the face of the planet. Gregory's look at nincompoops, Idiots at Work: Chronicles of Workplace Stupidity, makes it crystal clear that the world's biggest jerks are on the job. Consider these examples:* The woman who sued Eastman Kodak to improve the lighting conditions on her job...in a darkroom?* The Ontario Federation of Labor, which installed a bad boss hotline to get a handle on labor problems--only to have the system crash soon after startup because too many calls came in.* The interviewee who wore a Walkman, explaining that she could listen to the interviewer and the music at the same time.Gregory has made a career out of finding the imbeciles of the world and sharing their antics with the rest of us. His AMP humor compilations What's the Number for 911?, What's the Number for 911 Again?, The Stupid Crook Book, and Hey, Idiot! were all hilarious, but Idiots at Work takes the cake. The book is filled with hilarious tales of moronic managers, office idiots, stupid shareholders, daft decision-makers, poor planners, and other outstanding examples of cubical klutzes....

Idiots at Work: Chronicles of Workplace Stupidity Reviews
Bt the author of What's the Number for 911? and What's the Number for 911 Again?, this is a compendium of the genius-level cognition too many of us deal with in the workplace every day. The author (or compiler, I suppose) has an unfortunate tendency to offer bad puns. Nonetheless, this book will cause you to laugh out loud.
Pretty mediocre writing here, found a few funny stories but then again we've all had the same experiences with co-workers or help desk operators (and they talk about us, the callers!) so none of this shocked me or made much of an impact on me. In fact, I kind of felt like an idiot myself for reading this book. There ya go!
I thought this would be more on a personal account of ones workplace. Sort of on the lines of Retail Hell or Waiter Rant. Its just a jumble of different work places like Microsoft or unnamed companies around the globe.
I think I have seen some of these people - at work - in the news - shopping - on facebook...they are everywhere. Very quick read - some good chuckles.
same exact jokes over and over again. meh...his color commentary was weaker than leno's.
I thought it was great, it left me with a lot of laughs and I loved it.
I had this book on my phone, and found it great to have on hand for when I couldn't whip out a book to read, or had a few minutes on hand while waiting for something.It's a whole book filled with short bits about the silliness in the workplace. It's a fun read, and made my head shake a lot of times at the dumb people in our world.
