    Annoying Co-workers

    The guy in the next cube over is loud and disgusting. Every day at lunch, and usually for a mid-afternoon snack, I hear him chewing with his mouth open, smack-smack-smack. This guy is at least 45 years old.

    Grow up, and close your damn mouth!

    I hate it when coworkers trim their finger nails (and sometimes their toenails...save that for home, please!)

    I have a coworker that sounds like he's coughing up a lung...can you say "dead man walking"?

    Yeah my cube-neighbor does the same thing... manners aren't that important to him. God forbid he sits down at our lunch table. He talks with food dribbling out of his mouth. It's pretty damn nasty...

    Ugh...

    My roommates do that! First time I ate with them was an experience - surprised any food stayed in their mouths the way they chewed! - and he finished by unabashedly licking his plate.

    I'm sure some are annoyed at me for my sudden outbreaks of imaginary drum playing!
    However, no-one has come up to me and complained yet...so I guess there's nothing wrong.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    My coworkers get annoyed when I leave at 2pm every day to go ride my bike for 5 hours. Yay for coming in at 5am...

    Coworker that is a 'space invader.' I have to place things around me to deter him from sitting on my f'ing lap. He's real touchy too. And he moves my stuff around. I so want to punch him in the brain.

    Gah! I have another co-worker who does that, too. It wouldn't bother me, but the way the cubes are set up, every time he does it, an earthquake erupts in MY cube. I'd say something to him, but he would actually do it more--so I have to deal with his BS.

    You should tell him it sounds good and all the other co workers agree that next time he should bring enough for all of you.

    The woman in the cube behind me is constantly getting calls on her cell phone throughout the day, and she has this LOUD Mozart piano sonata ring tone. Our office is dead quiet, so everyone can hear it. It seriously goes off like 4 or 5 times a day. It was even addressed at one of our department meetings, but she continues to do it. How oblivious can you be?

    She also has this loud yawn that drives me crazy.

    This reminds me of a line from "I Love Lucy". Ethel is noisily eating chocolates, and Lucy tells her (this may not be the exact wording):

    "When you eat it sounds like a cow pulling its foot out of the mud."

    one of my co worker used to almost throw up evey time someone would belch. I did not like her so I drank diet cokes all day and every time I seen her I belched real loud. She went clear up the chain of command around here. Seems there is no rule about it. She quit. And I quit belching. Kinda fun.

    Maybe you should eat a very high fiber diet and then walk around the office and cut the cheese in their cubes. I've heard it does wonders for making them stay away from you
