Everyone has that person at work, right? The really, really, REALLY annoying one. The one who knows everything about anything, who has a grating voice or ridiculously bad personal space issues. Here are the reasons my annoying co-worker might just be on the business end of a stabbing.
That stinky, stinky lunch. There is absolutely no reason to bring fish into the workplace. Unless you are a fishmonger. Otherwise? You are obviously begging for a beatdown.
Stealing my office supplies. Look. I get that sometimes you don't come prepared to jot down a note when you're talking to me. I understand. HOWEVER. We all have access to the same supply closet. You know where it is. It's not even locked! Stop taking my pens! And stay the hell away from my Post Its. I will end you.
Making personal calls at your desk. Sometimes this is unavoidable, as when you get a call and can't quite step away from the common area before the conversation takes a turn for the invasive. There is, however, NO EXCUSE for you to INITIATE these calls at your desk, particularly when your desk is a CUBICLE! You have a cell phone. Use it. I do NOT want to hear the reason you are going to the doctor. Although thanks for the warning; I will be extra vigilant with my Clorox Wipes.
Let's hear it: What has that annoying co-worker done to you?
