I could literally explode sometimes at work. A coworker of mine plays the radio, loudly, all day long. It is always set to the “popular” station, and I hear the same 5 songs all day everyday. I’ve tried blocking it out but it always ends up irritating me to no end. What I hate the most is the repetition. Not to mention all of the music playing I find worse than nails on a chalkboard. We aren’t allowed to wear headphones here or I would have them on in a heart beat. I’ve mentioned this to him before about changing up the station, but it always goes back to the same one!!! Nobody else complains about it but me. It’s so loud that even if I use my phone to play some music, it’s barely audible! My job is bad enough. But to be aggravated all day??? I like working in COMPLETE silence. Most noise I find distracting and unnecessary. UGH. Just a vent. Anyone else have irritating coworker stories???

@Pixie26: How annoying! You always get one (or two) like that. The problem is if you are the only one bothered (or the only one saying you are) then there isn’t ever much that is done about it. We aren’t allowed radio/music on at work, ocassional someone will play something if they want to let a co-worker hear a new album or something but generally no. There are some very irritating people, from the guy who eats with his mouth open and it all fals down into the keyboard and he wipes the grease etc on himself, the guy who is ALWAYS loud and ALWAYS crude – everyone thinks his funny but he’s really irritating. There is the women that always ignores what I say, then acknowledges another person saying the same thing, the French guy with the irritating tapping ALL day and the girl always kissing ass! This turned into my rant! Good job I’m handing in my notice on Monday!!

@Pixie26: I am a teacher and we have one faculty bathroom in my hallway. It used to be that the door needed to be propped open or it would lock automatically and then you’d have to get a key to re-open it. This lead to a lot of being unsure if someone was in there, or if it was locked, so we would always knock and see if someone was in there.
Well – they finally fixed it – so there are two options. Is it unlocked – or locked? For some reason, this teacher STILL pounds on the door if its locked (and obviously occupied). She seriously sounds like shes trying to break it down! Like – relax! It’s locked and there are PLENTY of other bathrooms in the school – just further down the hall. It makes me so uncomfortable!

@UKbee: LOL the ass kissing here is also rampant. How I WISH I were putting in my notice!!!
@weatherbug: UGH nothing is worse than being in a public bathroom and someone banging on the door..like what do you say umm “someone’s in here?” “just a minute”? Thank god we have a bathroom here with 2 stalls. I’d hate to not know if someone were in there. Or the ultimate horror…you forget to lock the door or it doesn’t lock properly, and the door goes flying open while you’re on the toilet…that’s happened to me before *shudders*

I am amazed that people are allowed to play music at their desks, NOT using headphones!

I have a co-worker that is soooo lazy and pushes everything off on me. She can’t problem solve to save her life!!! When you try and talk to her, she just gives you a blank stare. She is always telling my boss…. “why can’t – do it” (insert my name here)… because it’s your effing job!!!!! And she dresses like crap and spends more time out of the office gossiping, than she does in.
I am trying to learn to cope!

@MrsTVLover: I agree!! It’s very annoying for me to listen to all day. The best part is my coworker SINGS with it. Normally in a horrifying falsetto voice, making up his own lyrics. Everyone seems to think it’s funny. How is this annoying habit funny at all????
@looking4adress: I would say that i can’t believe your boss puts up with that, but mine would pretty much do the same if the occasion every actually came up. Lots of people here are also lazy and try to pawn work off onto others. It’s ridiculous.
