Let’s get right to it shall we? Everyone has an annoying co worker. It’s inevitable when you work in an office. Someone out there is going to do something that bothers the ever loving you know what out of you. If this hasn’t happened to you yet, consider yourself very lucky. If you work in the Shangri-La of offices just be thankful and hopefully I can provide you with a little insight to what many other office workers deal with on a daily basis.
Until I have added some more info, I know you may not know what your options are so in the meantime, these earplugs might be just the thing you need to shut out whatever it is that you can’t seem to tolerate in your office:
Sometimes, these annoyances can be so pervasive, you may dread stepping foot into said office. As a matter of fact, sometimes it can get so bad that you may even find yourself calling in sick just to avoid confronting this annoyance. As we all know, there are a limited number of sick days afforded to each of us in an office job so these precious days are not to be wasted…no matter how bothersome the offense.
I get it people. I have been there. I have been exposed to various and sundry office etiquette offenses. Some are so incredulous it’s difficult to believe that the offender is unaware of the gravity of the offense. But that’s often times the case. Sometimes we have no idea that the seemingly innocuous things we do can have an uber-irritating effect on those around us.
So whether you’re the one creating the annoyance or the one being annoyed, I welcome you to the home of Annoying Office Habits. This is a place where you will be able to share the things that are bothering you, look for solutions or perhaps strike back with your own subtle annoyance. Next time we will visit some of the largest offenses.
