the irrelevant commenter January 27, 2009

Posted by That Guy in Staff.

The Irrelevant Commenter. Have you met the Irrelevant Commenter at your office yet? He’s not hard to miss. He’s a good worker, and he’s good at his job, but he’s not the kind of guy you want in your meeting.

And the worst part is this: because this guy is so good at what he does, he works with every department and is in every meeting, and he’s always walking around the building, dropping in on your conversations like a photo bomber.
