Bahhh, I’m sorry. That’s no fun.

Little things like that drive me crazy, too.

Like obsessive throat clearers, or tiny cough people. My roommate is a tiny cough person. It carries. So easily. Through the entire apartment. She has a rate of about 30/hour.

Ahhh! I’ve experienced this before at previous jobs, and it is not fun! So sorry!

So sorry. I know how you feel. I am so glad I have my own office now, so I can choose, for the most  part, what noises I want to hear.

I totally understand. It’s hard to focus on work when that happens. I’m not sure if some people are just hard of hearing and talk loudly for that reason, or if it’s personality in general, but it’s no fun!

I think my biggest problem with my roommate is that it annoys her boyfriend (I assume) because when it’s worst she comes out into the living room, presumably not to bother him. Only issue? The living room shares a wall with our bedroom! I kid you not, I had my iHome and the humidifier going and could not concentrate on a paper the other night, and she stayed out there until 2 am.

I know what you mean! Just try to ignore her and give her short one word answers. Or let her know that it is really disrupting your work and concentrations
