Most Annoying Office Habits of All Time

Humans, for most part, are annoying beings; which is probably why we don't get along with everyone - particularly in the workplace. Even the colleagues we count as friends, can sometimes drive us up the wall. Take this as a wake-up call - some of your 9-to-5 habits may be so off-putting and annoying, that we cannot not tell you about them. Read on and check out if you come in the list, too!

You're loud on the phone

Remember; you're not in your living room.  Unfortunately though, if you're sharing cubicle walls with co-workers, you need to know that they can hear every...single...word. And it's incredibly distracting. No one really cares if you're cat hasn't pooped for 5 days, or your next-door neighbour is in labour. Keep it low!

You work while you're invalid
No one wants to sit next to someone who's constantly sneezing, coughing and sniffling all their germs all over the office. You need to start taking sick leaves when you're sick. You don't have to be that martyr who insists on hauling himself to work to get into his boss's good books.

You eat smelly food
Nothing distracts more than a co-worker with a strong smelling food. So, kindly take that salmon sandwich or prawn salad to your well-equipped cafeteria. Also, don't dump the leftover in the bin under your desk; the last thing everyone wants is a stinking office for the entire afternoon.

You always borrow money
Even worse than suffering the pungent smell left in the office is the fact that it was your money that was paid for the food. Yes, there are some who believe in the concept of borrowing, as they are always out of money, but they don't believe in returning the money. And they are mostly the ones that get paid more than you.

You pretend your cube is a club
You may think that by listening to music on your iPod means no one else can hear but, you are sorely wrong. So stop being a desktop DJ. Moreover, the noise cancelling massive headphones that you use don't actually cancel the noise for everyone else.

You're always bitching about how busy you are
Guess what? Everyone is busy, and when you bitch and moan like you're shouldering the entire company, it just makes you sound like a whiner. Hey, and guess what? Everyone HATES whiners.

You call in sick, way too much
Although you rather stay home when you're terribly ill, but calling in sick when you only have a very minor headache is just ridiculous. You co-workers may not always know about the state of your sickness, but they do pick-up on your constant absence from the office. Try and make it into work next time, especially if it's a busy day.
