 If something annoys you at work today, there’s a decent chance it’s on this list:  Someone asked people to name the top things that consistently annoy them about working in an office.  Here are the top ten . . .

1.  I.T. issues.

2.  Old computers that are slow.

3.  Coworkers talking too loudly.

4.  Office gossip.

5.  People who leave dirty dishes in the sink, or leave the office kitchen messy.

6.  When someone calls in sick, but you know they’re NOT sick.

7.  Gross, smelly bathrooms.

8.  Paper jams and broken printers.

9.  People not calling out when they ARE sick.

10.  When someone borrows something from your desk without asking.

The top 20 also included uncomfortable clothes . . . old food left in the fridge . . . people cooking smelly stuff for lunch . . . and the constant sound of phones ringing.

Also, the top things we’ll CALL SOMEONE OUT for include leaving a mess in the kitchen, tossing cigarettes on the ground outside, and parking like an idiot.
