What Pet Peeves Annoy You Most In The Office?

I am reminded of the movie Office Space — and the many co-workers or bosses in it that bring out the worst pet peeves.

“Hold.. just a moment” repeated over and over.

“Yeah, about those TPS reports… we’re just going to resend you the memo in case you didn't get it.”

“Looks like somebody’s got a case of the Mondays!”

From loud typing on the computer keyboard, to loud crunching on snacks, to sipping on coffee or tea, to a phone conversation that never seems like it will end, to two co-workers whose inside jokes never seem to end and you are not a part of it, to the pranks that are played on you, despite you wanting nothing to do with any of those lame jokes, to another co-worker sending you a YouTube video and asking if you got it and have watched it a minute later, to yet another co-worker who has a filthy unorganized desk and sits right next to you, to a company that tends to throw an unnecessary meeting every other day, to a boss who is constantly standing behind your back stalking you to make sure you are working.

The list of Pet Peeves is endless and how you deal with it everyday and still get your job done is beyond anything you will probably ever understand.

This infographic contains a list of the top pet peeves in the office cubicle that most likely bother you too.
