Here's a thought- if you've left a vague voicemail for someone you've met and are trying to schmooze, when they (God forbid) actually call you back, you probably shouldn't have to describe what you look like. That's a sign that you shouldn't be in possession of their phone number in the first place.

Also, you shouldn't lie about your height.

Or ask to call them back on a landline because you're too cheap to use your day minutes.

Or mention the time you took a "client to small claims court".

Another bad sign? If someone can live blog one of your overheard phone calls.

God, this co-worker sounds like hell. I'm sorry. I suggest a big pair of headphones: I'm not kidding!

Start playing fun little office games with him.... I mean torturous ones. At one point in my "life at a desk" it was necessary to master the "fake stumble while holding a stapler and accidentally stapling your thigh" Has a long name but is soooooo much fun. Is also fun to smear a thin layer of ranch dressing on the underside of someones desk... really starts to stink after a few days.
