Anabel that's hilarious, but the supervisor would probably figure out the culprit! LOL

NB, I also work in a fairly relaxed atmosphere, but I have my own office. I work for an engineering firm, and it too is primarily male dominated. Out of 75 employees there are only 9 women, and we tend to be as laid back and nonbitchy as the men. Our Corporate office now, that's another story!

Okay not to continue ranting but NOW they are going on about how they are mad that the Christmas party is not a sit down dinner. Like seriously? So they don't want to go now. Seriously? Can you ever be happy? *bangs head off desk*
Chime in that maybe they should organize a sit down dinner for a Christmas party and then invite the office :)


Or if you're a creep like me, suggest that the Christmas party in itself is a sham and insist that the whole office should be going to church and praying for the sinners to burn in hell. Continue on the ultra religious tangent until they stop responding and start ignoring you. Usually eliciting the slack jawed, wide eyed look is sufficient to ensure you've scared your office mates into quiet, for a while.

They say money doesn't buy happiness -- well happiness doesn't buy horses!

At one job I used to have a little silver dish with some dried rice, dried beans, some coins and some beads. I told people it was to curse anyone who messed with my stuff. It was really just an assortment of random things but my stuff was no longer touched.

Oh I love you girls! Seriously you are awesome lol.

I am very very very tempted to take your suggestion of the party being a sham I told them when I started here that I am religious and a prude and they rolled their eyes and said "well you wont last here". I laughed and carried on my way. However... I think now is the perfect time to play onto that

Buy some crystals and sage as well, and stick them in a vase. When people ask say, 'I'm using these to ward off the demon spirits!' Then clutch your throat and mutter a prayer under your breath.

THIS is why I generally hate women. Soooo nice to your face and demons behind your back. No, I'm sorry. You got a with me, get your big girl panties on and say it to my face.
I worked with a bunch of those girly-like,really?! - type chicks (they generally grate on my nerves to begin with). On the pipeline (why were they there? One said she hated getting dirty so when I slipped down the muddy bank I took her with. HAHA! Priceless.) girls like to stick together but after listening to their moaning I got fed up and said something to the effect of graduating high school and little brains years ago.
Anyhow, don't take long for word to get around I was their subject - duh LOL What pissed me off was when I came across them and they were all smiles and "Hey-ay!" Nu uh. Don't work with me.
So I stopped and smiled and said "Heard you're good at spreading rumours. Hear your almost as good at that as spreading your legs." And that was that.
However, rules are different on the pipeline, my boss and I got along. You might not fare out so well...
Are you allowed headphones to play music while you work? Ear plugs?

I was going to say a zen garden might be nice and relaxing to play with when bored or frustrated. I love some of the suggestions you guys gave :)

I would, in no uncertain terms tell them that if they have nothing god to say then they should keep their mouths shut.

I love the Eleanor Roosevelt quote and would hang it up so all can see it.

I would also ask if they talk so bitchily about each other if one should leave the room?

NB, I don't envy you. I don't miss working in an office setting, at all.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
