It's Monday, it's summer and we're back in the office. Oh, joy.

Since the dawn of time, working stiffs have been annoyed by the same basic things day-in and day-out: the awkward and annoying conversations, the technology that never quite works, the random yoga ball in that one cubicle that someone actually uses from time to time.
