    Office Pet-Peeves

    So, the Yell has been discussing lip-smacking co-workers and how they disgust you.
    That led me to think of other office stuff that gets on your nerves.

    Here's a partial list of mine:

    1.
    People who leave their desks and don't put their phone on Do Not Disturb (DND).
    And then, of course, they get a billion fucking phone calls with the ringer volume at top level.
    I actually had one woman BITCH because we would pop into her cube and put it on DND when she was a hourlong meetings.

    2.
    People who leave their desks and leave their fucking cell phones there.
    See above.

    3.
    People who ALWAYS do meetings at their desks on SPEAKER phone.

    4.
    People who feel the need to stand on the other side of the cube wall and have long drawn-out conversations while I'm trying to work.

    5.
    And finally (and I actually saw this today) people who PISS ALL OVER THE FUCKING TOILET and then don't clean it up.
    Two crappers in the bathroom and one is totally unusable because some fuckwad decided to water the porcelain.

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Lip smacking while eating

    Talking excessively with a mouthful of food (and no, pushing it to the side like a big wad of chewin' terbacky doesn't let you off the hook).

    Popping popcorn in the office (that just reeks)

    Heating up pungent foods in the office pantry and then trailing it down the hall (see above)

    Putting pungent foods in the fridge and stinking up the whole fridge.

    Not reloading the communal printer (especially after having printed out a couple of books' worth of docs)

    Leaving the communal stapler (fax machine, copier, etc.) jammed without calling office services to fix it.

    Leaving a mess in the pantry like you still live at home with your mamma to clean up after you.



    I'm sure that there are more but I'll stop for now.

    People talking never bothers me...excessive keyboard clattering (especially from the hunt-and-peck types) is much much worse.

    Huge +1 on that one, brother.

    I can't tell you how many times some jackass (most likely a jillass, to be honest) has stunk up the entire fucking floor (300-400 people on a floor at most companies I've worked for) by putting the popcorn in and then leaving while that shit burns.

    Re: Office Pet-Peeves

    I agree with loud eaters all the way.

    I also have a coworker that is ALWAYS eating.
    She's not very loud, but its constant.
    The worst of it is, she was recently in the hospital because of a blood clot and came out saying she was going to get healthier, so now she doesn't eat crap food all the time, but there's something totally disgusting about seeing someone eat an entire box (big box) of raisins.

    Bad penmanship.
    We back up everything with paper files and its a huge pain in the butt to grab a file and not be able to read it.


    People that answer the phone, hear its a destination that they don't want to do and then say line XX is for anyone.
    This isn't a pick and choose job.
    Take the damn call.

    People that will hand of any call that isn't on their file.
    While we all have our own, anyone can work on anyone elses file.
    Stop being so friggin lazy and get it done... we're all busy, just because its not yours... do it anyways!

    People that plain don't answer the phone unless everyone else is on a line.
    The phones are our life source, if we don't answer them, we make no money.
    However, sometimes, I'll be trying to finish up a bunch of crap that I haven't had time to work on... the phone will be ringing, and the same girl that sits next to me will be eating away and not answering the phone.
    So I have to put my stuff aside yet again and answer the call.

    Lastly, people that love to get others in trouble.
