10 on tuesday: 10 things that annoy you about work

Ten things that annoy me about work…

1) That I have to go on the days when I would rather sleep, read, knit, play outside, play with Derby, talk with friends and family, go shopping, paint, write, watch a movie, learn a new craft, try a new recipe, take a nap…
2) Co-workers who pee on the toilet seat and don’t wipe it up.
3) Co-workers who make a mess in the breakroom/kitchen and don’t clean it up.
4) Co-workers who back into their parking space in the garage while a line of cars waits for them to get it between the lines. In the grand scheme of things this saves you no time. And I kind of doubt anybody is going to compliment you on your reverse driving skills.
5) Co-workers who leave their cell phones set to their loudest ring-tone and then leave it on their desks while their kids call 49 times in a row.
6) Talking on the phone when I have a cough/sore throat.
7) That all the talking on the phone I have to do at work lessens my desire to spend time on the phone with my friends and family.
8) The occassional rude/inconsiderate person I speak to on the phone.
9) I honestly don’t mind my long commute. But I don’t like putting so many miles on my car and the frequent fill-ups at $4.00/gallon.
10) See #1

I was in a sorority a long time ago and we had the pee on the seat problem in the house. We had a sign above every toilet that read "If you sprinkle when you tinkle be a sweetie wipe the seatie! We also had the potty press on the back of the stall doors.
I love your list.

#4 is just plain rude. Letting that go everyday would be impossible. I'd really have to do something about that one.

I KNOW. #4 is rude. But I don't know what to do about it. The person who kind of takes care of those building kind of issues also backs into his space.
