I have one in the cubicle across from me that clears her throat, loudly, with the the same *ahem..hem..hem…mmmm* EVERY FIVE SECONDS

Seriously, I am about to leave a package of Halls on her keyboard.

I work with someone who is the definition of annoyance:
Incompetent, lazy, pretentious, phony, inappropiate, coughing and sneezing all day every day, other annoying habits including talking to herself and reapeating everything that is said to her, always looking for free food/goodies, eating disgustingly smelling food, easily offended, pretends she is overworked and close to collapse when she has half the workload of everyone else.

Headphones for sure. 

If I had a dollar for every person at work that annoys me, I’d have free lunch and dinner (it’s a small office).  There is one girl that doesn’t even work in the same office as I do, but we are on conference calls a lot.  She is constantly coughing into the phone, asking me to hold on while she puts her hair in a ponytail, or giving me a step by step of what button she is clicking on her computer.  She also never gets anything done so I have to constantly babysit her to make sure she is completing the work I have sent her.  I get migraines from dealing with her on a weekly basis.

When people annoy me I pull out the “poo bombs”

I have a plethora of imaginary poo artiliery that is launched by my imaginary monkey Marcel (I require an imaginary monkey simply because I dont want to handle poo)

Depending on the level of annyoance…low = nugget launch, high = someone ate corn last night…they get smashed in the face with various imaginary surprises.

I’m seriously not kidding this totally works. No, I didnt come up with this on my own the idea actually came from a professor who did this when students asked annoying or  stupid questions.

I usually mimic their annoying qualities. Or say things in complete contradiction cuz I know it’ll annoy them.

We had one girl, who drove me up the wall with stupid questions (50 year old woman) and have about 20 little stuffed and plastic toys on her desk. After she would go home I would move them all, just so slightly. I’d either make them face the wall, like they were bad, or sometimes hide them so their little heads were poking out staring at her from somewhere on her desk.

I also used to adjust her chair differently… all the time. LOL. that all sounds a little mean, but I swear knowing her, you would’ve done it too.

I have a couple time-wasters that are hard to shake at my job. It’s like a miracle when my phone rings and they are still in my cube after blabbing for 30 minutes. I actually like these people, but both are extremely socially awkward and also kind of new, so they just don’t appreciate other peoples time yet. I’ve tried everything to end teh conversation, but nothing works, I literally have to pick up teh phone or excuse myself to the ladies room to shake them. One is a female though and she will follow me in to the bathroom still talking. Ugh!

I download and play lots of apps on my phone.  Distraction is key!

@.twist.: LOL that is so funny, what would she do when she came in and saw her toys all rearranged??

we have a new-ish girl at work who honest to god is the most helpless-walking-anxiety-attack i have ever met.  she’s been here for almost 6 months and still the most basic of tasks have to be re-explained to her every time.  She is FAR behind the normal learning curve here.  every day some new “drama” happens in her life that leaves her in tears, she is demanding of help in every aspect of her life even outside of work, and is rude to those who help her!  i’m not sure how she’s made it this far (in her mid 20’s, from england but living in the states) with the apparent life experience of an 8 year old.
