The majority of mine involve the F-word.

"You have a Ph.D., huh? I had no idea they were just giving them out on street corners now."

But other than that, they're a lovely group.

I really have to watch what I say at work, people on my crew have taken me to HR 5 times in the last year. Luckily it all fell within the scope of my duties and responsibilities. I guess some people just can't handle the truth.

I've faced similar, by people who KNEW what I was saying was a joke, who have said the same or worse, or who weren't even involved. Plain and simple, people just use inappropriate comments as a weapon nowadays.

I hope nobody gets in trouble with their actual job because of something they say in this thread.

No. 35 of the OP's directly applies to my cube-mate. She wears this nuclear waste product she calls perfume which I refer to as "ode de urinal cake". Seriously - that is exactly what she smells like and she must swim in that vile shit for an hour every morning. It makes me want to wretch every time she breezes in . . .
I don't have a co-worker like that, but we do get walk-in customers who must have bathed that morning in a tubful of horrible-smelling cologne. I want to say to these people, "Are you olfactorily challenged or something? Christ, you smell like a goddamn pimp."

Oh, and it's eau and retch.

^it's the thought that counts, scotpens
This is slightly off-topic but maybe it qualifies as something one doesn't normally say at work: Yesterday, just when I passed the elevator, one of our computer specialists stepped into it, on his way to the meeting room, and through the closed doors I heard him order: "battle bridge!"

One of the main things I'm tempted to say to a lot of people is "First World problems", and telling them to suck it up. Some of the complaints we get are so incredibly inane it takes a lot of effort to take them seriously which, sadly, is part of the job.

This is by far my favorite word to use at work. They hate it.
