. . . who’s never on a diet, so you innocently bring in donuts for all your coworkers?
. . . who told everyone at work how much money you make? And then made sure no one was mad about it?
. . . who saunters into work at the very last second, misses all the announcements, then wonders what’s going on?
. . . who never checks their work email because of log-in issues, then wonders what’s going on?
. . . who’s always the first one at work, perky and organized all damn day?
. . . who’s always the last one at work, still at the computer, making everyone else feel guilty for leaving before you?
. . . who gets coworkers to finish discussing work-related issues over beers or cigarettes?
. . . who never comes to staff meetings but still has a job?
. . . who always signs up to bring a veggie tray at potlucks because it’s easy and safe and doesn’t require talent?
. . . who is on the clock when you do personal things, like Facebook?
. . . who is quick with an excuse every time someone calls you with a request?
. . . who takes a long lunch, plus maybe a breakfast break, or dinner break, or two or three snack breaks?
. . . who answers your work phone with complete exasperation, “YE-ES?”
. . . who forgets to sign up for mandatory training? Or forgets to attend?
. . . who always eats the same, predictable packed lunch every single day?
. . . who parks in visitor parking instead of employee parking because it saves you an extra two-hundred yards of walking?
. . . who seemingly asks questions at staff meetings, but really only wants to voice a complaint?
I’m actually not ranting, if you can believe that; I am honestly amused (insert laughter here). Furthermore, I am two of those people. My husband is at least two of those people.
How many of those people are you? How many other work annoyances can you think of?
