Worst Office Etiquette Stories

Good Day Monkies,

I lucked out on missing this polar vortext so I'm bored and decided to stir the pot a little.

What is the worst office etiquette story you have? Is it a coworker's habbits or one incident?

I'll start...

-One coworker flosses his teeth at his desk and I have counted up to four times he has flossed before we even eat lunch. You can hear the string snapping up to 30' away. Some days he will just sit the string on his desk (post-floss) and put it into his trash can a few minutes later.

Please top that.

-Gator

Two people sitting 10 feet away from each other chatting loudly on intercom to one-another after their conf call while others are scrambling with complex finanical modeling work right between the two, thus suffering the endless echo of every word and laugh exchanged. Happens daily.

Sitting in a trading floor style office, best purchase I made was the Bose QuietComfort 35

Yep. Two people in offices right next two each other or one down from each other talking on fucking speaker phone with their doors open. Absurd.

Are you supposed to flush before you're finished?

My thought too! I'm not trying to get poo water on my butt. HOWEVER courtesy flush is key. Gotta give it that double tap before you walk out.

Only if you like wasting water. Save the whales - flush every other shit.

Multiple times, and in different workpapers, have heard people on the phone while in the bathroom sitting down. I always try to make extra noise whenever I hear it happening.

Haha I (sadly) know a few guys like that. They love taking calls on the toilet, and don't care that the other end hears 10+ flushes from the rest of us. Always remember to courtesy flush.

I'm really close with my coworkers and am fine with people having weird perceptions of me.

I'm guilty of trimming my toe nails at my desk in an open office. It was sweet.

this fucking asshole used to wear only toe shoes and then stopped wearing shoes at his desk altogether

Look at all these wannabe richies hating on an expensive salad.
