    Default Biggest office pet peeves

    Biggest office pet peeves
    Condescending tones and loud talkers were among biggest annoyances, according to a new survey.
    March 14, 2006: 6:26 AM EST


    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - Does the guy in the next cube drive you up the wall with his deafening voice?

    Thirty-two percent of employees listed "loud talkers" as one of their biggest pet peeves in the office, according to a survey released by Randstad on Tuesday.

    Nearly half of those polled said condescending tones were the worst, while 37 percent found public reprimands at work particularly irritating.

    Micromanaging struck a nerve with 34 percent of the respondents, even more than cell phones ringing (30 percent), use of speakerphones in public areas (22 percent) and using PDAs during meetings (9 percent).

    And 11 percent of those polled hate it when colleagues engage in personal conversations in the workplace.

    Harris Interactive surveyed 2,318 employed adults for Atlanta-based Randstad's monthly Job Bites survey on workplace etiquette.

    Those are about right. I don't mind the personal conversations so much, as long as its not TMI.
    People that are always eating something at there desk annoys me.

    I can't stand people who print out everything in the world, but then never pick their shit up from the printer.

    Doesn't that drive you nuts, Six? Also, how hard it is to keep the printer area clean? Let's create nice neat piles of paper people. When you reload the printer, through the paper wrapper away!!! Don't leave it on the table, ass clowns!!!

    Amen to that!!!

    I hate it when people use speakerphone. Just pick up the damn phone. How lazy are you?? Jeez.

    I also hate when people use the copier but don't reload more paper and leave it empty when they're done so the next user has to load all the paper. How hard is it to toddle over to the supply room and pick up a few reams?? Jeez.

    Whew!! I feel better already.

    OMG don't get me started on office music.

    I am forever grateful to have an office all for my very own.

    How about in general people expect someone else to clean up after them leaving paper towels falling out of trash cans in the bathroom, messes in the lunch room, not taking old food they don't eat out of the fridge until it stinks, waiting for someone else to make coffee (leaving 1/8" in the bottom to burn), etc.

    My biggest peeve is for people to get along. If you have a problem with someone/thing, go hash it out a bit. Don't sit around complaining which will not solve the problem.

    The use of the catch phrases. I.E. "Moving Forward" or "Going Forward"
    Coffee Drinkers in the morning. No different then people on crack.
    Guys breaking the code of urinal distribution.
    Women who are pregnant and fail to do any work for 6 months.

    "PC Load Letter"? What the fuck does that mean?
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    That is a big one for me too. It's so annoying.


    Some other classic annoyances:

    The people with shitbreath who get right up in your grill and talk nonstop about their personal life (Like you give a fuck)

    When you are CLEARLY in the middle of something and some slacker walks up, says "Oh are you busy?" and then starts talking anyway.

    Stinking up the office with fucking microwave popcorn.

    People who invite themselves into your lunch plans. (you weren't invited for a reason douchebag)

    Long voicemails with the person leaving their phone number at the end but saying it super fast. Asshole, if you want me to call you back, speak clearly at a normal pace so I can get the number.

    People who bring thier coffee mug into the bathroom. They set it down on the sink and then go drop a deuce, WHY? you can't go 5 minutes without your coffee? Don't you know that tiny shit particles are traveling in the air and landing in your cup? Now it's a CRAPachino.

    Are we writing the script to Office Space 2 here or what?
