Ohhh yuck. What if one of you is gassy that day? Like, do you have to excuse yourself for a moment and then come back so you don’t dust crop everyone?!

That sucks. Headphones and a scented candle could do wonders for you!

Sounds like the only solution is to eat at a chinese buffet every day to contribute your own horridness to this mess!  haha!

So sorry for this situation.  It sounds awful!

I only work with two other women and one sounds like the first lady you described! She’s loud and rudely opinionated. I don’t usually eat at my desk, just even in my car, to get a small break and some silence haha.

It’s not a woman thing. It’s a shitty human being thing.

I worked in a mixed team in my last job and had all those issues and more. I’m now in an all female team and it’s bliss. So yeah, I’m sure it’s not specifically a female related issue surely? Just a crap colleague issue?

Agree, not a female thing, just a “coworker” thing. Sorry, wouldn’t be better with all guys…

What does this have to do with them being women? 

Im also wondering what your office quirk is?

Youre coming across as a bit judgemental. I don’t know why you care if other people choose to eat salads for lunch. 

 

The other stuff…loud coworkers, smoking, BO, and someone not flushing after they poop (www) are definitely nuisances but have nothing to do with being women! Anyway, it sounds like an annoying work environment. Maybe you could look for a new job?

Regardless of gender, I can see how it would be challenging working with 10 people in one enclosed workspace. Maybe you can find ways to block out the things that bother you.

None of that really sounds like ‘woman’ things except for the tampons in the toilet (EWWWW).

Are you allowed to wear head phones?

I sat next to a guy who smokes and I get really bad head aches from certain smells. I quietly spoke with my boss and ended up moving to a different cubicle. I can’t imagine sitting with 4 smokers in a small space like that! Not too mention cigarette breaks that usually occur on the company’s time…

futuremrscrow:  I really really hate the word “bitch” and describing women as “bitchy” and attributing bad moods to PMS and assuming PMS causes all women to be angry/mean/rude. Seriously, comments like this make me sad. Working with all women isn’t the problem, your attitude and internalized misogyny is.
