it’s been a minute on here, trying to find a balance between work and life basically. I got in touch with some 9-5ers and asked for their office pet peeves.
I mean we all have those eye-rolling moments at work when someone does something repeatedly annoying. We are either an offender or ‘offendee’.. Lol..
Here are some of the entries:
When my boss takes all the credit for the work I did and doesn’t acknowledge me
When I’m in the lunch room eating and someone else comes in and starts making small talk
When we have a conference call with an international client and the phone needs to be on speaker, my boss always makes his entrance with: Hi Toni you are now on SPEAKER PHONE with G*** & S***” (pls what is speaker phone???)
When my male colleagues abuse access, a male colleague made himself my boyfriend by force. Every morning he comes to my workspace with arms wide open: S*** COM’N GIVE DADDY SOME COOKIEs ” (err nope)
when someone wants to know everything you’re up to. Like you cough and they are like ‘what happened’? or when I’m having a conversation with someone else and they’re like ‘what’s that about’?.
When my boss decides it’s 5 mins to closing time that he wants me to work on something. Yo! My brain shut down 20 mins ago.
When your colleague thinks everyone wants to listen to his ‘perfect playlist’ for the rest of the day.
