First day back from his vacation and this fucking asshole is already getting on my nerves.

So I have my desk as it's in the picture. I was using that cardbox because the stands my company promised haven't arrived yet and I got tired of waiting. This box had the exact height of the monitor's stand, so it was perfect.

The first thing the PM said today: "That's ugly. Why do you have that?"

I explained. He went away.

I go out to lunch and when I get back the fucking box is gone.

WHAT THE FUCK?

    So did someone just touched your stuff just like that?

    without your permission?

    WTF man!?

    Just say you had your wallet in there, and it was stolen. Lets see who will run then.

    I'm sorry for you, that was so unfair! I actually liked the box. Eco-friendly and sustainable decor.

    @nanl And you can paint it to have a design like you want

    Find a new box and fcking glue it to your desk.

    but you still have the Tupper eco bottle ;) you have to see it from a different viewpoint: maybe the PM just saw the unhappy amzn Smiley and wanted to remove this Motivation-blocker from you… Pretty unrealistic but not at 0% probability :D yeah and if not, I agree with the others!!

    @kesk @Fradow the box is still in the room, stacked with a lot of other boxes in a corner (that looks ugly as fuck imo).

    @nanl me too. RIP eco-friendly stand.

    @shellbug Then go pick like 7 of those boxes and pile them in your desk like a fucking Amazon warehouse. Build a fortress.

    First of all: formal complain
    Second: steal what ever he has and use it as laptop stand, you might even take his laptop :P

    Well maybe just choose one of the two...

    wtf

    I'd talk to HR and raise the issue. If it's a box now, who knows what crap he'll pull off later

    @Wack @vlatkozelka I don't care anymore since I'm planning on leaving anyway.

    What keyboard is that you're using?

    @iris That my friend is the current king of ergonomic keyboards, the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard. I've been using them for a couple of years now after my Microsoft Desktop 4000 died a death.

    Well if you look a box like that, no offense, but it looks like garbage... Maybe if you get another box, decorate it a bit, maybe a devrant sticker and something else, it would look like a pretty cool laptop stand

    You should keep a bunch of spare boxes. Every time they take it just replace it with another. lol

    @marcorodnav sure, it didn't look nice. Still it's not ok to remove it without saying anything. He could have asked me to remove it and I would. It's the fact that he did without me even being present that annoyed me.

    box-ophobia perhaps? :p

    Get a really really really ugly laptop stand. Like, the ugliest you can find. Hell, make it yourself to ensure maximum ugliness (coincidentally it's what I do with my code). When he throws it away go to HR and tell them your PM is harassing you and is throwing away personal belongings of yours.

    @polaroidkidd that's a good one!! Maximum Ugliticity. Catchy, Gotta find a situation to use thus 😂

    You are working with a psychopath. Run while you still can.
  • 2
    Try removing said co-workers face because you find it ugly and see their reaction.
  • 2
    Report it.

    No matter what, no one should touch another's desk. It's not just annoying or an inconvenience, it's probably illegal.

    Edit: a box now, then it's a pair of expensive headphones.

    classic PM pretending to contribute and making some work LOL

    wooow. wtf....I feel so badly for you :(

    You definitely need to get new job. That is very toxic environment.

    At my old job at dev agency we used boxes all the time as monitor stands until they purchased us ones without issue.

    It is a normal thing to do and he needs to understand it is not ok to touch anyone's desk without permission.

    Best to get out of there as soon as possible.

    From all your rants I can tell how toxic that work environment is and if you don't get out you will get burnt out, depressed, have illness, etc.

    Hope you can find new job soon! Cheers!

    @Bitwise thank you. Me and my girlfriend are figuring out what our next step should be. She also wants to find a new job, but for her it's harder, so we'll most probably move to a bigger city, for more opportunities.

    in honor to @shellbug I say there should be an avatar goodie depicting an upside down box as a monitor stand :-)

    @antorqs that would be so awesome! @trogus please? 😃

    Fuck that guy, you don't put hands on another man's box without asking for a whopping

    Get the fucking juice out of you PM...
    Or whoever who took it away.
    Shit how the fuck can someone take away your things from your desk!!!
Your Job Suck?
