Oh boy.  Don’t get me started about the lady I work with!  What a nightmare! 

I think my biggest pet peeve is that she ignores the phone when it’s ringing, so I have to pick it up, even though that’s her job, not mine.

Right now it is my boss not coming into work at all this week, I have been constantly rescheduling his appts. and fielding the calls of people freaking out about not hearing back about stuff.

I have a guy who hums and taps his foot along to music. Thanks for wearing earphones so I don’t have to listen–but it doesn’t really make much of a difference if you’re singing along!

We have a total type-A trainee in my group who needs constant attention and positive reinforcement and is also a total know-it-all. If I don’t respond to his email or IM right away, he is suddenly in my cube regardless of how busy I obviously am asking me about something really dumb that can wait. I’ll answer his question then he’ll argue with me about it. I’m sorry but I don’t have the time to prove myself right every time you interrupt me!!

@PitBulLover: I used to have a girl beside me that would just start talking out of the blue, and the first person to acknowledge that she was speaking was the “winner”.  Then you were her best friend for the day and she would yap at you all day about shit you just could NOT care about.  Eventually I just started getting up and walking away as soon as she opened her mouth.  Tact is for the weak.

@deliciousappleblue: hahah that is awesome! I need to do that – it sounds like the same person! Sometimes I will email one of my coworkers and say call me so that my phone will ring!

I share a cube wall with the office whiner.  I actually like her because she can be really funny at times but her negative attitude really gets to me sometimes. And she likes me so she’s constantly talking through the wall and I feel bad if I don’t respond.  I need to stop though because I’m SURE we drive the rest of our co-workers crazy.

@PitBulLover: Sometimes if my mom calls me at work I silently will the phone to ring! It sounds mean but she will call about four times a day while I am at work and I feel so awkward, maybe now the wedding is over she will slow down.
