    I do eat lunch at my desk on occasion. So I may be annoying.

    These two just kill me.

    being that I now work from home and no one is around... I bet I don't gross anyone out! LOL... even when I work in nothing but a robe~

    But back in the day... yeah a few of those things on the list would, maybe not gross me out, but I would think to myself "really? uh, you are supposed to be WORKING"

    a couple of annoyances for me were:

    filing or clipping nails while discussing your work

    hearing the "beep beep" of a person's text going off every 2 seconds.... no, really.. constantly all day long.... and watching her stop to reply (needless to say her productivity was quite low)

    gross: loudly belching and commenting on "how good that one was"....
    bringing your sickness into the office to "share" with others... sneezing, sniffling, running nose... etc... (go home, please)

    :)
    good thread OWO

    People crunching on snack chips and slurping soda all day, all the while complaining they are tied and don't feel well.

    Putting one's phone on intercom while waiting for something on the other end. In the meantime we ALL get to listen to crappy hold music on a terrible monophonic speaker.

    Not truly gross, but VERY irritating.

    Hmmm someone texts me all day. Is it annoying to my coworkers? I don't really give a fuck. I'm in my own corner office, what goes on in there is my business. I eat at my desk, I fart but open the window afterward. Now what can I do about all the shit smell that comes thru the vents to my office? Nothing but open my window.....again. It is irritating though how others come to our building to crap when their space has a crapper. That and how women don't clean their pubes and linty stuff off the toilet, those are my top two irritants at work.

    People whose hygene is not up to standard, and people who have odd ideas about what is approprate to wear. I mean, seriously, if I can see either the patterns on your panties, or...more, you don't need to be wearing it.

    Ditto for a too tight shirt on a guy. If I can see every muscle in your chest and abs, too much.

    Then there are the people who sit on the computer and message all day. One former co-worker of mine had this annoying wolf whistle tone for every time she'd get a message, and she'd constantly be getting messages.

    Ditto with personal phone conversations. I don't need to know the personal details on what you'd had for supper last night, or where you and your BFF's went.

    Would you rather a co-worker fart loudly so you KNOW they did it, or have a very nasty silent one you walk 'into'?

    I like to take that rubbery glue and stick it to my upper lip like it is a booger.

    Farts aren't funny if you can't hear them.
