Book Description

Sept. 1 2004
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 Stupidity

Leland 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 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Bedtime Reading Sept. 29 2007
By Travis Olson - Published on
Do you get those emails about the silly things that people do at work? Basically this is a book that collects silly things that people do at work.

The book is set up with one page anecdotes. Some of them I found funny, some left me rolling my eyes, some did not effect me. To me, the best of this book come from company memos, but there are also a lot of the "a customer calls the help line and asks how to determine if a mouse pad is compatible with his computer." A lot of it is silly things that I've seen before.

On the plus side the book is an easy read and did provide me with several smiles and a few laughs.

A chore to read, surprisingly; and the author's unfunny comments after the entries usually only help to kill the joke further. Not one of the better compilations out there. You may want to try Ross & Kathryn Petras' 'The Lexicon of Stupidity' instead.

This books was so funny. Couldn't imagine some of the scenarios. So profound is the fact that truth is stinger than fiction.
