09:57 am: Unbelievable stupidity from coworkers
Our office allows people to bring dogs in.
There is one dog who when his owner has to leave his office to go to meet with someone and he leaves him behind in his office, the dog starts barking like crazy.

And, apparently, the people I work with think that the best thing to do to show him that this behavior is unacceptable is to go pick him up and pet him.

This dog is NEVER going to stop barking when left alone. Because he knows that if he barks like crazy, someone will come pet him.

I mean, how stupid do you have to be?

I can understand going to check to make sure he's not dying - but once you see that, leave him alone! That's the only way he'll realize that his efforts do not get him the desired results. If you pet a dog every time they do something bad, you're only encouraging the bad behavior!

These are the same people who will be raising kids in another couple of years. Anyone want to venture a guess at how well-behaved those kids are going to be?

The main question I'd have is: why your office let dogs in? It sounds counterproductive to me.

(Also, yes, stupid to the max: I don't have dogs, but my aunt and godfather both have some, and I know better than that. Let me guess, that dog was never trained properly, was he?)
