Yes, we can ALL hear you now

So does anyone out there have any great suggestions on how I can nicely say to the VP who has the office a couple of doors down from mine that taking a conference call on speaker phone with your door open and then talking at the TOP OF YOUR LUNGS to ensure that everyone in a 12 block radius can hear you is considered bad office etiquette? Because if you guys don’t have any suggestions it’s gonna get ugly.

It's almost as bad, but not quite, as the guy who comes and eats his lunch in the open office next to mine. Not so bad to use an empty office to eat in but it is when the reason you eat there and not at your own desk is because you insist upon eating the equivalent of a truckload of onions. Yes, even though there is a wall and a door that smell does indeed permeate. And no, even though you think you're being nice by not offending your direct "neighbors" you're really not because you and your onions are offending the hell out of me.

Yeesh, forget the Ethics "class" we need to take every year at my company, we need to take an Office Etiquette class.

I usually close the door for the exec. A little passive agressive, but it satisfies me.
