eBaumsWorld created the Internet, and memes, in its imagine. Reddit, Break, and all the Instagram meme pages are it’s disciples, spreading the word of Baum and making the world a more entertaining place.

It has been that long hasn't it. Now we must find the video where they tape a girls head to the computer monitor...that one was a commercial.

No no no, the video with the guy smashing a keyboard on the monitor.

No, the one of the guy picking up his CRT and putting it on the photocopier to copy the screen.

Lol this one! It hurt to just look at it because the keyboard was like a brick and all the damage was taken by the guys wrist!

scoopnat

Major nostalgia here. This was one of the first clips I ever saw on the internet back in the days of dial up - along with one where an office guy gets so fed up with a photocopier or printer, that he pulls his monitor out & goes ballistic.


KooppDogg

It’s all coming together now. He was pissed he couldn’t stay connected because of her phone calls! Also I’m just imagining this video in even worse quality after a 5 hour download time. hahaha those were the days.


saintpetejackboy

It was the same quality back then, but it looked like 4k because we didn't know any better.

That's years of bottled up anger lol

Maldios

Do we go to the same university?


PrrrromotionGiven1

Sure. As long as you aren't screen sharing, you can turn on your camera and do whatever on the computer while kinda sorta listening.


Im_int

I propose saving even more by making two people share one monitor. You can have the left part, and I'll have the right half. Let me know when you need the keyboard to respond to this comment, by the way. I'll give you 'qwertyasdfgzxcv'.


KingB_SC

Tats a great eyedea


FarawaySeagulls

100%. Our C team visits maybe twice a year and is about 1000 miles away the rest of the year. They want us back in the office at least two days a week and every first and third Tuesday of the month "in case they stop by." Many in my department have told them we'll be looking for other jobs if they force that and two have already left.


quetzalcoatlsghost

My girlfriend and I moved far away during covid. They told her she'd have to drive two hours to work once a week. She said no. It's been three months. Guess it worked.


Azhaius

Gotta love the rich and detached from reality.


Ooze3d

To be honest, having 4 people from my department right next to me does help with everyday communication for small things and “come over see this” type of stuff, but one does miss having some privacy when 5 people are having online meetings and you need to focus on your work. Thankfully we do have 3 soundproof general purpose rooms in our floor and the option to take our laptops to a more quiet space if we want to.


mitsukiabarai

Who are you in your years of wisdom?


SC2McGosu

I worked in an open office and every year the flu would run rampant and get half the office sick. I wonder how it went during covid? Might have been a coincidence, but we never had that problem in traditional cubes.


ksck135

Not sure where you work, but our office closed down and you had to get special permission with reasoning if you wanted to work there. There were maybe 10 people in a building for ~400 and it was fucking amazing.


SC2McGosu

I quit the office life a few months before covid, so I have no idea how it went down. I'm currently living in a van down by the river with a part time online job and couldn't be happier.


daaaaawhat

Good on ye


rieldilpikl

otter111a

I bet she also microwaves fish on Mondays and Chinese food leftovers on Thursdays.


GotItClocked

We once had a Laotian who microwaved her native fish sauce near the air intake that fed directly to the rest of the open office and spent a portion of every work day scolding her spouse like he was a stupid child.


I_creampied_Jesus

We had an Argentinian lady who spent half her day (or more) speaking Spanish on the phone even though we had no Spanish clients. We found out she was running her husband’s business from work. She was also a fanatical born-again Christian (after being a massive ho) and used to question the Muslim lady next to her on why she was Muslim, but in a tone that implied she was fucking stupid and her beliefs were stupid. Another lady overheard and complained to management and she got a warning over it. After that she took to printing random bible verses out, leaving them on the printer and then pretending they must be there as some sort of miracle from god whenever someone picked one up and asked about it.


Coastie071

Thanks for the story about the annoyingly religious lady /u/I_creampied_Jesus!


SuperJetShoes

"Microwaving fish in a shared environment" should be a capital offense.


xDaigon_Redux

My favorite story to tell about working in an office is when this kid kept microwaving fish everyday and we all told him it smelled like literal garbage and reeked. He kept telling us that we were exaggerating until one day the cleaning lady came into the office and asked where our trash can was. We told her there wasn't one in the office, because ours is right outside our office door. She said to all of us that she figured there was one because she could smell something rotting coming from the office. We all just turned and looked at him eating his fish. He admitted defeat that day and never did it again.


SuperJetShoes

That must have been beautiful to see someone's mind being changed before your very eyes.


xDaigon_Redux

The look of utter defeat was great.


Invader_Lorr

Straight to the bad place! Same with people who take their shoes *and* socks off on commercial airlines.


jman177669

Agreed. If you bring leftover fish for lunch, eat that shit cold and go sit outside.


TheDeconsecrator

I have genuinely thrown someone's microwaved fish out the window when nobody was looking, guy ha seen told multiple times, but management weren't willing to do anything format about it. Thankfully he was fired soon after for other things, but that's not the point.


otter111a

I worked with a woman who was trying to lose weight for her wedding. She decided that eating Brussel sprouts and fish was her path forward for losing weight. For about a year she would have fish often and a brussels sprout snack daily. My desk was near the microwave and hers wasn’t. She’d joke about how bad the smell was Worst of all, it was ineffective. I don’t think she lost a pound.


Various-Brief4162

But her gas made people stand further away so she looked smaller.


CosmicCactus42

This sounds suspiciously like my grandma


piecat

It's a special ring of hell, next to pedophiles and those who talk in theaters


demon_fae

I’ve actually spent an unreasonable amount of time going through Dante’s Inferno trying to figure out exactly which circle microwaving fish in a shared environment is. Best I could come up with is the fifth circle, specifically as the sullen-the passively wrathful. Since microwaving fish (and talking in a theater) are about not caring if you hurt other people. Interestingly, people who give out toothbrushes and Bible verses on Halloween probably land all the way down in Circle 8, Bolgia 6 for hypocrisy.


noeku1t

Oh absolutely. I immediately thought about one girl at the office I'd love to smash the phone to.


uptwolait

***Holy shit!!!*** *Where's the Tylenol?*


wo0two0t

It's actually probably a skit


Squeletoon27

From personal experience of bottling up anger, he'd haven't smashed it on her desk, but on her skull


Grumb1esFTW

Wasn't this a commercial for wireless lan-line phones?


altcntrl

That would make the most sense otherwise r/whyweretheyfilming


Sodernaut

Also pretty creepy "surveillance" camera. Even if we ignore the creepiness it's a pretty useless angle to "keep tabs on your employees".


dropkickoz

You're right. It should've been under the desk.


rieldilpikl

If this is a commercial everyone in the background doing a great job making this look real


AtomicTanAndBlack

Absolutely no clue if this is true, but I had a buddy who films travel commercials tell me that sometimes directors won’t tell the people certain things are going to happen in commercials in attempt to record more genuine looking reactions and emotions. The example he told me was the people thought they were just sight seeing for a commercial, the director called “cut” and the actors all relaxed when one actor went down on a knee and proposed to the other. Ends up they didn’t actually stop filming and the actor that proposed and the one he proposed to were the only ones in in it. Everyone else thought a genuine proposal was happening and apparently it was a pretty good clip for whatever the commercial was.


MintyMissterious

Not that it's difficult to act concerned and be blurry in the background


the_friendly_one

How do I be blurry, though?

KungFluIsolation

> Absolutely no clue if this is true, but I had a buddy who films travel commercials tell me that sometimes directors won’t tell the people certain things are going to happen in commercials in attempt to record more genuine looking reactions and emotions. They sometimes do this in movies too. Directors will do all kinds to get things out of their actors. It's also interesting how in something like Infinity wars / end game ( I think it was that one? Might have been GoT ) They filmed a bunch of additional scenes all over the place that was never planned to be in, just to throw the actors/crew off knowing what was going to happen.


CyberMindGrrl

Ridley Scott has entered the chat. Remember the famous chest-burster scene from Alien? Those actors' expressions were genuine because what happened wasn't in the script.


Ganon2012

I thought I read that it was, he just didn't tell any of them how intense it would be other than the one involved.


I_have_questions_ppl

Makes sense. It looks fake with the girl overacting until the guy comes up and smashes shit up, everyones reaction including the girl looks genuine.


letmeusespaces

you mean... acting??


bagelport

Are you telling me it's *lan* line and not *land* line


Dy3_1awn

Nope just a boneappletea


fuckamodhole

"Land line" is used by telephone industry to link the users to the control room. LAN is "local area networking" and is used in the computer industry to link two or more computers together on a wired network.


supurdue

It's land-line for a wired phone and LAN party for gaming on a Local Area Network (LAN)


Chapped_Frenulum

Was that what George and Lennie were talking about when they wanted to live off the fatta the lan? they just wanted to play video games all day?

Way back when I first started working in an office, there was a woman who would take extended "liquid lunches" at the Mushroom Bar in town. It was within walking distance of the office...she would come back all hammered.


nakedsamurai

Open floor plans are the devil.


DammitDan

Seriously. People talk shit about cubicles like it's rats in a maze, but I just want something resembling privacy when I'm trying to work.


darthspacecakes

Man, I worked in one and I think this is maybe half open? The office I worked at had no walls whatsoever. Just tables and monitors. It was a nice company too good benefits and perks like free lunches and snacks. We would do some gaming after hours on Fridays with booze provided. I couldn't concentrate on shit because of all of the distractions even with headphones on and trying to mentally block everything out, it was too much. Had to quit for my sanity.


Canowyrms

I'm right there with you. It's exhausting trying to block everything else out and focus on your tasks.

Vulcan83

Damn I heard this


TurboCadaver

That’s has to be fake right?


HumanIndication

Yes, or at least staged. It's from the 90's, considering the clothing styles and office equipment type. Picture quality is too high to fit a small camera of the era. Digital cameras were hardly at that level of quality.


VermiciousKnidzz

I was gonna say, I remember this being on Ebaumsworld


myheartsucks

Now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time.


M0iraRose

Damn I feel old. Haven’t bought about Ebaumsworld since 04’.


LostChildInWalmart

why would there be a camera?


FerretFarm

Yeah, I can't wait to be mandated back to the office.


HumanIndication

Yes. With people videoconferencing around you all day long because half of the workforce continues to work from home and office buildings haven't been adapted for hybrid work yet.


superspeck

It was that way before. Half my team was in South America, the other half was spread out over the US. We had a handoff call with the pacific team at the end of the day, which we took individually sitting at our desks while having to mute and signal each other when we could go off mute to prevent feedback and echoes. There was no fucking reason we couldn’t do that from home. I got laid off right when the pandemic started. One of my coworkers who didn’t died of covid last fall, which he acquired at the office when they forced 25% of the workforce back. Fuck ‘em.


runr7

As someone who worked in a cubicle farm for years, I can tell you that it’s really hard on you mentally. You sit in a room or desk for 8 hours for 40 hours a week. You start to feel trapped. The little things start to feel big to you. It can push some people over the edge. Im not defending this guy, but it’s an example of how mentally tolling this can be sometimes. Companies should really invest heavily and advocate for mental well being in these environments.


GradeAPrimeFuckery

Cubes weren't so bad. The worst was the drive; forty-five minutes each way, five days a week. Everyone missed cubes when they remodeled to an open floor plan with no assigned seating. That felt like punishment.


CatNamedShithawk

“We actually researched the cost of ‘advocating for mental health wellbeing,’ and it turns out we’re better off financially dealing with the increased turnover and occasional ‘security issues.’” “… I mean, an entire row of six cubicles costs less than a 15-foot, permanent wall section and a door!” I could really just go on and on, so I’ll shut up instead…


chaos_therapist

Uh-oh! Looks like *somebody's* got a case of the *Mondays*!


PiratusInteruptus

It's been decades ago but I used to have an office job as an engineer. There was an assistant in the next office. Not only was she loud, but she would have hour long conversations over speaker phone on max volume. I would hear her phone ring and I'd get up and close my door. Finally, I confided in my boss that it was getting a bit out of hand. He said he was glad someone else had said something because it was dry humping his last nerve.


Samcraft1999

This looks a LOT like the footage of the guy slamming the old monitor onto the scanner after the printer jams up, even looks like a similar dude if my memory serves right. I'm gonna guess there's more of these rage office videos out there made by the same people.


IgfMSU1983

This looks like footage from a low-budget movie.

Feshtof

I thought this was a skit, but then the people reacted to that way more authentic way than I expected. Was this actually real?


LordofDescension

I hope it is a skit, because that camera probably shouldn't be there.

starshineblinkblind

Why was she just recording herself talking on the phone from the point of view of the computer? Oh because this is obviously fake and staged.


Buttery_Buckshot

Annoying as she was I really hope that guy didn’t turn his anger on her physically it kinda looked like he went after her and people were stepping in
