    Annoying co-workers anyone?

    So, I'm sitting in my cube enjoying some CF. I'm reading stories of freshman funks and hatetred toward u of i when this putrid smell fills my nostrils. I think to myself "has a rat died in the ventilation system?" No, it is one of my co-workers cooking his lunch in the office microwave. He does this daily and stinks up the office everytime. I believe he is from Korea, so he is most likely eating foods that are native to his country. However, I swear sometimes he is eating roadkill.

    It's annoying that my co-workers and I have to sit through this stench everyday from noon until the smell dissipates. It's stomach churning and now I don't think I want to finish my lunch. I tend to be a very accepting person but the smell just makes me sick.

    Anyone else have co-workers that do things that absolutely drive you nuts?

    All of my co-workers are either Hawks or Huskers. I have nothing else to say about that.

    You deliver pizzas?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I'm working as a grad student and ISU right now so you'd think I wouldn't have to deal with this, but I do!

    Do you make license plates or road signs?

    Sadly they are all college graduates. So smart and yet so misguided. Strange really.

    Re: Annoying co-workers anyone?

    I've got a friend who works at IBM in Rochester. Some guy apparently likes to break wind as he walks down the hallway; he has no shame. Apparently, it tends to happen near my friends cube. I wonder if the guy just has it out for him?

    I'm surrounded by Horns, Aggies, Buckeyes, and Wolverines. They all know where Iowa State is, but no one cares. Though it is fun watching them trash talk and prank each other, sometimes I miss having Hawks around to bag on them.

    I have one lady I work work with . . Well lets put it this way . . . We went to a conference/training about 5 hours away. We were not the only 2 in the vehicle. She decided to drive part of the way back. She pops in here jesus rock CD and begins to sing to it all the way home.

    Same problems with food smell here. Another annoying issue is the lady that clips her fingernails every morning. It probably only last 2 minutes but it feels like 10 hours of hell.

    Just wait till someone goes and gets it for lunch, then saves their leftovers and puts them in the fridge and forgets about it before xmas break. Then come back and open the fridge and see that crap growing. It looks like someone vomited in a styra foam container. Nasty, I cannot believe people eat that.

    I had one that while I hardly ever talked to them directly much between them basically blabbing to whoever was listening about everything going on plus their crazy addiction to MySpace I knew just about everything going on with their personal life between the 2 rarely having asked a question about it.

    Two of my coworkers would talk about their cats all day - what they bought them for christmas, what they dressed them up in for holidays, what they did the night before - talk about got annoying fast. Don't sit between them anymore.
