    No vinegar with your breakfast or lunch. Please, no vinegar.

    Taking the last drop of coffee and then just leaving the empty pot. Drives me nuts.

    People who talk at 150 db while on the phone in their cubicle.

    Using speakerphone in a crowded cubicle environment with the volume on MAX.

    We have two regular and a decaf coffee pots, what drives me crazy is when there is about half a cup in one and they take some from the other or they just leave about half a cup... Just finish it, or dump it in the other pot and make some more...

    I used to commit an office nono though... When I was on a big health kick i was eating Tuna right out of the can for snacks at my desk. Didn't even realize others don't enjoy the smell...

    And then ask you to turn down your radio immediately after they are off the phone.

    But weren't you told that you could listen to the radio at a reasonable volume from 9 to 11?

    Re: Office no-no's

    1)_ Loudly Clearing your throat every 42 - 50 seconds all day long. Seriously, I timed them out one day...

    2) Coughing up internal organs ALL day long. If you are that sick. Work from ...........home.

    3) Yelling at your spouse, kids, or significant other on the phone. That is why you have a cell phone and why we have stairwells.

    4) Healthy and mobile adults taking an elevator ONE Floor

    Do you work with me? I think the same thing about this one lady. I hate the popcorn thing too. We prank each other by putting tuna cans under each others desk or in drawers so I cant get mad at that.
