16 Annoying Workplace Habits

Be kind to your colleagues.

1. Farting in lifts

Hold it in people. The ride’s not that long.

2. Stealing food from the work fridge

There was a name on that banana.

3. Inappropriate work wear

No one wants to see too much skin at work.

4. Leaving the kitchen messy

Please wipe up your spattered curry from the kitchen bench.

5. Removing your shoes at your desk when you have smelly feet

Any smells, really, that are emanating from your person should be contained at work.

6. Loud phone talking

Glad you had a great holiday/are booking a great holiday. We don’t need to hear all about it.

7. Letting food rot in the fridge

You know that salad you brought in last week but bought a burger instead? It’s growing legs and wants to say hi.

8. Annoying email sign-offs

Cheers, thanks, regards are all appropriate. Leave your ‘see ya sweeties’ for the family. These are particularly bad when it’s at the bottom of a nasty email. A smiley face does not negate your rudeness.

9. Eating smelly food at your desk

Glad you like tuna. Not everyone does.

10. Spreading your sickness

Everybody is really impressed that you battled a cold, a flu, a runny nose, a demonic cough and highly infectious diseases to come into the office. But how about next time you stay at home?

11. Inappropriate desk behaviour

Cutting your toenails at your desk is a no no.

12. Oversharing personal details

So you were off sick from an infected dog bite? Great. Don’t need to hear about the oozing.

13. The passive aggressive CC

Yes, we made a tiny mistake. No need to CC in all the heads of departments when you alert us of it.

14. Perpetual meeting maker

Let’s have a meeting to discuss meetings. And then drag out those meetings for as long as possible. MEETINGS ARE NEVER PRODUCTIVE.

15. Not sharing delicious foods

So you made muffins! Are you really going to eat them all yourself?

16. Not wearing deodorant

You might not be able to smell your own stench, but the rest of the office can. Spray or roll on. It’s not that hard.
