How to stop being the annoying co-worker

Updated on May 7, 2017

Co-workers can be friendly or annoying. A good co-worker can be a source of cooperation in a lot of things. But a bad co-worker drives fellow workers nuts and sometimes creates hurdles in their work. At times it becomes extremely intolerable when they peek into others workplace or interfere in their business. People spend quite a bit of time in office, so it’s essential to develop good relations with every single person who works there. If you have ever found any such colleague then you would be known to it that how does it feel being with an irritating co-worker. Even worse, what if you are that annoying co-worker???

If you are a compassionate and decent person then you must be considerate of the personal space and behaviour of those around you. Somehow you would not be able to overcome your habits or may not be known to it that your behaviors is creating formidable difficulties for others. If you are thinking to overcome this habit of yours but still you find yourself helpless, then you must follow this article to find the best solution of your problem. You can try following ways:

You must be being too chatty with other co-workers and maybe that’s causing hindrance in their work. If you are going to talk with your fellow co-worker, but you found that they are looking at their computer screens and typing while you are talking, then it clearly shows that they are in no mood to chat with you. A simple thing that you can do is to ask before starting your conversation. If they would be free or in a mood to talk, then they will surely welcome your chat wholeheartedly.

If you want to talk about any issue at work, you can politely ask them to help you out. In this way you can keep good relations with your colleagues instead of being annoying.

If you are habitual of helping others without any plea or request then you must think this over, because this might prove to be an annoying habit to others. Instead of pocking your nose in every matter and giving helping hand to others, you must maintain some distance. You can assist others by enquiring humbly, “Do you need my assistance?”

If you enter into your co-worker’s cubicle without their permission then you are causing displeasure that will not be appreciated by others in any way. You just need to do a simple thing. Ask for permission whenever you try to step in their personal space or always check if the other person is free to talk. It will create respect for you in hearts of your co-workers.

You must avoid asking the same question every single day. If you ever find difficulty in using any equipment at your workplace, then you must ask your co-workers to teach you once. But don’t ask them every day as it will not be tolerated in any case. You must note down all the information and suggestions given by your co-worker at once and then complete your work on your own.

Some people are habitual of talking to themselves, so if you have this habit then you are actually displeasing your colleagues. If you are working in a shared office then your whistling sound, mumblings and taping your pen on your desktop will surely create annoying noise. You need to keep track of all such habits that may offend others.
