Office Space is still so relevant

Milton Waddams: [talking on the phone] And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire...

I wish that the sort of petty bs that goes on day after day in our work lives didn't exist. Does that make me an idealist or a cynic? Sometimes I think they are intertwined, that one breeds the other. Excuse me while I go put on my corrosive cynicism button...
