    Which is the most annoying office habit you have ever come across?

    Often our colleges do indulge in some very annoying office habit which really irritates us, like talking loud on their phones, office gossips etc. I would like to know your opinion on the same.

    Loud background music.  I don't mind music but it needs to be a background sound.  It seems that in offices, stores etc. the music is played so loudly it is like attending a concert - and if you happen to dislike the music genre that is playing - it is really hard to concentrate.

      I know how you feel.  There are some employees who think they're in their own homes and turn up the volume.

    I had a co-worker who picked his nose and wiped it on the underside of his desk.

      Yuk!!! I think our education system should be a part of it. And there should be at least a session on common office cultures and behaviors.

      Lack of professional behavior is always difficult for me - in the situation below another thing I found highly offensive in that work setting was the constant swearing by all employees, including my office mate and boss - it was part of the culture.

    In recent years I had an office mate who talked incessantly while I was trying to work. She also assumed we were best pals and wanted to go to lunch with me AND our boss every day! She also felt the need to tell me where she was going when she left to go to the restroom! I felt really smothered, besides having a hard time getting my work done due to the constant chattering.

      I hope she was your co-worker and not your subordinate. Here in India, most of the people think that it is necessary to inform their boss of all happenings. For Example, They always mark a copy of their emails to boss which may be most irrelevant.

      She was an administrative assistant, but she didn't report to me. She was supposed to assist me on some things, but it was quicker for me to do them myself. My boss in that situation was not much better, though I did tell her about the situation.
