Office annoyances

What actions or expressions annoy you most in your workplace?

A Holiday Thought...

Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."

The death penalty you bet you baby! What happened to justice. We don't have it in this country. Col. Williams is just re-victimzing the families. You can't rehabilitate man from confinement. Prison doesn't work. Stop building them. The death penalty and lethal injection works.

I'm sick of the government hiring people based on language or skin colour. The government should be run like a business with the best SKILLED person being picked WHO CAN DO THE JOB. No-one minds losing to a better person but losing because you're white and english speaking is not right.

Tom, you are bang on with your advice!!! My husband and I feel your responses are witty and truthful. Especially the boyfriend brawl, keep up the GREAT work.

Noise at the office including radios played by co-workers who refuse to wear headphones is a health issue as well as gossiping and talking loudly -

I hate it when people over eat on garlic and other smelly foods, then come to my work area (desk) and breath on me!!!!!

I am annoyed at work when I am fully loaded with stuff--all hands--and doors are not automatically opened for me. Doesn't happen often because people are soooo nice!

Smokers that take what they think are entitled breaks. If a non smoker was to stand outside doing nothing, they would be undoubtedly be questioned. Also people that gossip, point fingers and generally have an opinion or feel they have to judge others. The only one we can change or control is ourselves. The greater percentage of the comments/ 'advice' is about just that, others. Other annoying comments are "What, or Sorry?", which usually indicate a person is formulating an answer not that they didn't hear or understand. Also constant throat clearing, sneezing and coughing to me are indicators to keep a distance. Typically they are right handed and after such actions including wiping their nose may want to shake your hand. So in summary it's self and other awareness, the ability to put yourself in someone else shoes and to be respectful and courteous.

Just to name a couple of annoyances, buzz phrases Peaple who repeatedly prior to voicing an opinion starts with " I think" and use somewhere in the statment "At the end of the day". This buzz makes my teeth ache.

Surprisingly, the issue of co-worker's radio noise has not been addressed. This is the most annoying and unhealthy workplace issue - the radio stations encourage people to listen to their radios without consideration for others who are forced to listen in an open work space -there is no escape!
