Top 10 Annoying Things your Co-Workers Do on a Daily Basis

If you have ever worked in an office type setting with more than two people, you know that things are going to happen that just plain drive you NUTS. They will be small things which you brush off at first, but then they happen again, and again, and again and eventually you can' take it anymore and you being to resent the people, their careless actions, and inconsiderate habits in which you are forced to deal with 40 plus hours a work week.

With a little help from two friends, we have complied a list of the Top 10 Annoying Things your Co-Workers Do on a Daily Basis:

#10 – Lunch/Break Thieves – Nothing burns my bread more than hearing “I know you are on lunch, but it is just a quick question”. I just sat down, opened my magazine and bit into my sandwich, now all I want to do it bite off your head.

#9 – Slamming around computer equipment – I know you are born in the stone age, but hitting things will no longer help it to work.

#8 - Smokers - just because you smoke doesn’t mean you get longer and more frequent breaks than non-smokers. That would be like a coffee drinker getting a break every time they get a new cup and not coming back to work until they are finished.

#7 - Ask me if I am busy – “No, I have been here for two hours, but haven’t started any work yet because I knew that you would need my help”

#6 - Chew food violently at desk ALL morning long - you get a break eat then.

#5 - Eat while talking on the phone - I sure has heck don’t want to listen to it and good chances are neither does the person on the other end.

#4 – Put their food in the microwave and then go back to their office to do more work. Hey your Lean Cuisine has been sitting in the microwave for 7 minutes now and I know for a fact that Fettuccine Alfredo only needs to be in there for 3.5 minutes.

#3 – Don’t pick up printing jobs off the printer/photocopier. Really, you just printed 65 pages and you don’t want to come and get it?

 #2 – Don’t flush - yes fellas this happens in the ladies room too.

 #1 – Clip fingernails – at my house you do that in the bathroom OVER the toilet!

Ahhh, all three of us feel so much better now that we have these off our chest. Is there anything we missed?? If so, please leave them in a comment so we can all read it and go "OH I hate that!"

Happy Wednesday!


  1. 11.) People who schedule long meetings for lunch time, don't have food brought in and don't like people to bring their own lunch to the meeting.

    12.) Managers or higher who take phone calls/answer email or send texts during meetings.

    13.) People who routinely show up 5 minutes or more LATE to their OWN meetings.

    14.) Much like the lunch break thieves, the people who come by as you are putting on your jacket for the day and want just one little thing before you little thing that invariably takes an hour or more to do.

    15.) Speakerphone calls in the next cubicle.

    16.) Let's have this loud, non-work related debate outside Bob's cubicle.

  2. 16.) coworkers who stay up really late then complain how tired they are all day!

    17.) people who make that tounge clicking noise when they are searching something on the computer.


Good things happen to those who leave Comments!
